I'm considering a Benelli MR1. I'm going to use it for competition, shooting coyotes, etc. Please discuss.

Specifically:
-Any issues with the LAR mags?
-Accuracy?
-Reliability, jamming, etc?
-Anyone ever hear of one being rebarrelled to 6.8 SPC?
-Trigger quality and weight?

Interested also.

Allegedly one of the more accurate black rifles, term used loosely.

Allegedly a heavier barrel version in the works.

Looks like a nice rifle the one problem i see is parts. If they are as rare as Benelli shotgun parts a year wait may be necessary.

Called around to all the dealers I've been known to frequent... not a single one has an MR1 in stock for me to fondle. I'd hate to order one of the internet without at least shouldering one. Wife says I'm good to spend the cash, but not unless I get to see one in person first. :S

Prairie Gun Traders in Avonlee has one listed, he usually doesn`t list stuff if it`s not in stock. Darren is a good guy to deal with.
