Hey guys, I have a Beretta 1301 LE Tactical and I would like to have the loading port opened up for easier and faster loading. I have stupid huge and long thumbs and loading is literally a pain.

Would you please recommend reputable companies that do this kind of work? And would you comment on whether or not such modification has any impact on the shotgun's reliability?

My 1301 Tactical is my work and home defense shotgun. I'm not a 3-gunner

I read bot your posts on the two forums.

I think what you are asking about is called "Dehorning". It is what we do to a fighting firearm to make it less abusive, that is removing the sharp edges where our hands run (manipulate) the gun. If I am correct in this assumption, contact Gunsite Academy Inc in Pauline, AZ. Ask to speak to Cory and any of the instructors there.

You might also contact Hans Vang of Vang Comp in Prescott Valley. He really specializes in tactical shotguns. They both have web sites.

Good luck a be sure to let us know what you find out. I use a 1301 but haven't had any issues like you are experienceing.

Hans Vang's website shows no Beretta 1301 services.

I'm looking for the best company in the USA that will open the loading port on the Beretta 1301 shotgun.

I did it myself on my competition Benelli. It looks decent but not factory perfect. I don't care as the objective is to load faster. 3 gun is a speed contest not a beauty contest.

Like I said, I'm looking for the best professional option for opening the loading port. I'd like to hear from people who have sent their shotguns off for this work and where.
