I might be in the market for a new Benelli R1. But I can't seem to get a straight answer on where it is made. Obviously, I know that Benelli is a Beretta company and the Benelli address is listed in MD (not far from Accokeek). But is the Benelli R1 made in the US or is it made in Italy, or somewhere else? To be clear, I am specifically interested in the R1 - I know that manufacturers sometimes make different arms in different parts of the world.
Benelli's plant is in Urbino (Italy). It's the only manufacturing site where the final products (so, of course also the R1) are assembled and the final QA takes place.
So, you don't have to be afraid that it's manufactured in the US or something ;P
