More input on the Benelli R1
As usual I was not totally correct on my first evaluation of the R1. I decided to check on you.tube comparing disassembly and cleaning on the following semi-autos, Remington 7400, Browning BAR, and Benelli R1. Both the Remington and the Browning are not going to be easy for the average shooter/hunter to takedown to clean from the breach end. The Benelli is very easy to breakdown. The Benelli M2 shotgun is even easier but I am comparing rifles here. After watching several videos I am going to get out with my Buddy and shoot his R1 again. I have a new perspective on it. I think that a even trade for your AK would be a very smart one. You won't be sorry.
