View Full Version : r1 in .223????

Does anyone think they will ever offer the r1 in .223 or .243, or 204? I would buy one in a heartbeat. See when benelli built the R1 they didn't think of us Illinois people because we can only hunt varments with a rifle.

.243 would be an easy transition from the .308, since the .308 is the .243's pappy.
As for non-big game cartridges, I'd have to doubt it.
You can get highly accurate and cheaper Ar's in all of those calibers and more.
Browning can also help you with the .243 in many variations of the BAR.

The bar would be a second choice but ar's are against the law to hunt with in illinois. You can only have a max. of 5 round in a centerfire rifle to hunt. I was just hoping and dreaming

You need to either move to a free state or do something about the illegal restrictions in your own state.

Moving is an option but illinois is two states. chicago and the rest of illinois and chicago as 40% of the vote. That doesn't leave alot of room of the rest of us.
Believe me, all hunters in illinois are trying to make things better

Berreta offers a RX4 in 223 on their international site. Looks like the R1 with a benelli pistol grip stock.
