Aridus Industries Zhukov Handguard Adapter for Beretta 1301 Update and Video

Prototypes shown

The Aridus Industries Zhukov Handguard Adapters will be available soon! These adapters allow the Magpul Zhukov Handguard to be fitted to the Beretta 1301 shotgun, giving the user access to M-LOK slots for accessory mounting. The adapters are currently in anodizing and should be available in the next few days.

Aridus Industries recently released a video that shows a potential configuration for the handguards. The video also relays important details about the gas/heat shield, gas venting, and accessory mounting considerations.



Sneak Peek: Dark Star Gear/Aridus Industries Q-DC Carriers

The Q-DC, or Quick-Detach Carrier, from Aridus Industries already offers somewhat magazine-like feeding functionality with its ability to quickly swap shell carriers to the side-plate of your shotgun. So, why not offer a magazine-like way to carrier them?

Aridus Industries and Dark Star Gear are collaborating on a new kydex carrier for the Q-DC. The prototypes are being tested (shown above). They appear to be MOLLE compatible and offer retention via a ranger band. These will be available directly from Aridus Industries once they are in full production.

Stay tuned for details.



Aridus Industries CROM – Rob Haught Mod

Aridus Industries is now offering a modified version of their CROM optic/sight mount for Beretta 1301 and Remington 870 shotguns. The modification is inspired by defensive shotgun guru Rob Haught’s preferred ghost ring set up. The ghost ring is cut in half so that only a “U” remains. Aridus Industries states that this sight up allows for faster sighting and less obstruction of the sight picture through a mounted red dot sight.

The sights are milled to shape, deburred, and then parkerized. They are available as an option on new CROMs or for purchase separately to retrofit your existing CROM.


Sneak Peek: Aridus Industries Zhukov Handguard Adapters for the Beretta 1301 and RMR CROM

Aridus Industries has already developed an adapter that allows Beretta 1301 owners to mount Magpul’s Mossberg SGA stock on their 1301. Now they are working with prototype adapters that will bring the Magpul Zhukov Handguards to the 1301. The Zhukov handguard could be a great match for the 1301 due to their length and variety of MLOK mounting options.

The image below also shows a prototype version of their CROM mount for the Trijicon RMR. The CROM mount is already available for Aimpoint Micros. It is a direct mount that provides both a mounting surface for the optic and a ghost ring back up sight.

Aridus Industries CROM – Pre-Order

Aridus Industries has opened pre-ordering for their upcoming CROM – Co-witness Ready Optic Mount. This mount is designed to mount an Aimpoint Micro on Remington shotguns or the popular Beretta 1301 Tactical. There are certainly other Aimpoint mounts available for shotguns but the CROM has a unique feature that sets it apart. The mount has a windage adjustable ghost ring sight built in that can be co-witnessed with the red dot sight.

Check out the CROM at Aridus Industries.

Sneak Peek: Aridus Industries 870 to Beretta 1301 Stock Adapter

The Beretta 1301 might be the best defensive shotgun on the market right now but the only aftermarket company that seems to know that is Aridus Industries. There is currently very little in the way of aftermarket support for the 1301 especially as it pertains to buttstocks but there might just be a fix for that soon.

The image above gives us a sneak peek of what might be Aridus Industries’ next new product. It’s a an adapter that allows 1301 owners to mount Remington 870 stocks like the excellent Magpul SGA stock on their 1301. It may work for any 870 stock, but as you can see, it blends the contours of the Magpul stock to the receiver perfectly and adds very little to the length of pull.

Stay tuned for pricing and availability information.


Aridus Industries Aimpoint Micro Mount for Beretta 1301

If you want a shotgun for defensive use, you would be hard pressed to beat the Beretta 1301. If you want an optic to use on that shotgun, you would be hard pressed to beat an Aimpoint Micro. It looks like Aridus Industries has a plan to let you do just that.


They gave us a sneak peek at a prototype optic mount for the Beretta 1301. It allows the user to mount an Aimpoint Micro and uses what appears to be an XS Sight Systems rear ghost ring assembly to co-witness with the Aimpoint. The prototype is machined from 6061 aluminum and obviously left in the raw. Aridus Industries states that the design still need some tweaking and there will likely be changes before it is offered for sale.

Aridus Industries Universal Q-DC

Aridus Industries is still in the process of crowdfunding the production of their Q-DC, a quick detach shell carrier for shotguns. None of the major crowdfunding sites would accept their project because it is a gun part so they are pre-selling product at a discount on their own in order to reach their goals. They also just released a new product for pre-sale that might just make reaching their goal easier.

Aridus QDC Promo

The Universal Q-DC is base plate unit designed to be used on a wide variety of shotguns. It uses some really tenacious double sided tape to stick to the side of your shotgun. As long as you prep the surface well, you will likely break parts of your shotgun or the Q-DC before it comes off. The Universal Q-DC has relief cuts in areas where pins would commonly be located on the receiver to allow the pins to be removed for cleaning.

This universal version of the Q-DC has already been tested on popular shotguns like the excellent Beretta 1301 and Mossberg 930. Aridus Industries has made a downloadable template available via their website so you can check for fit on your shotgun.

These are being offered at a steep discount during this pre-order. Check them out at Aridus Industries.
