That's right, a Yildiz 410 over/under. Has the youth size stock, with a 26" barrel. Cute little shotgun.

The shock was when I hit the price on it. $499.99. Not sure why it is that much more expensive than the other models. Hope that's not a sign for the future.

I consider the price quite ridiculous. I wasn't happy that the yute 20 I bought was 30 clams more than the regular SPZ ME, 28" brl/14-14.5" LOP.

I certainly wouldn't fork over 100 clams more for a .410.

Truth be known, I wouldn't buy or have an interest in a .410 in any configuration.

Even when they unwittingly, I presume, refer to it as a 36 guage.

Granted, the little 66.5 gauge O/U probably doesn't hardly weigh more than four pounds if manufactured frame specific.

To each their own.

Would've been nice for a 28 gauge in O/U.

My yute 20 doesn't have any noticeable recoil firing 7/8 oz loads.

I'm curious as to the weight difference twixt the yute 20 & .410.

Anywho, as always, thanks for the Yildiz updates at Academy.

I'm thinking about picking up a 12 gauge O/U.

Low brass in 12 or 20 costs the same.

I'd like to see Academy import the dark receiver in 24" brl.

SPZ I 71

Gauge-12
Chamber-70-76mm
Barrel length-61-66-71 cm
Safety-Manual
Trigger type-SST
Choke-4/4 - 3/4 -2/4 - 1/4 - Cylinder
Stock-for end-Walnut (British Style)-- BTW, it's the buttstock that makes it British style/straight stock.
Weight-2,7 kg


It appears that Yildiz only makes the dark receivers w/24" brl in fixed choke.

This is a straight stock model w/swivels that allows one to carry slung over shoulder.

If I'm correct the 1/4 would be full choke on top w/IC on bottom.

Would seem to be a good all around brush gun.

I'd prefer choke tubes, yet I'd buy this configuration.

I like the dark receiver, 24" brl, swivels & English stock.

Why doesn't Academy allow ordering different models w/deposit?

I don't mind waiting for the next shipment.

Thanks again and keep us informed on what Academy is up to these days.

So now a $500 shotgun is TOO EXPENSIVE? There's no satisfying you guys is there?

"...a $500 shotgun is TOO EXPENSIVE?"

Relatively speaking in comparison to the prices on their other models.

Academy oughta sell those little rascals for 300 bucks so you could afford the high dollar shells, I tell you what.

If'n yur gunna sale a hifalutin scattergun ya oughter shoot fer the yildizs with the sacred cow caliber of twenty n ate. Leastways then you can put on airs atellin folks that spending half a grand wasn't squat compared to droppin' a Hamilton a box fer shells.

Ya just never know coz pronouncin' your wealth like that might impress some gal raised in the bottoms to move up to a shotgun shack-teau, quaintly nestled within the warm confines of galvanized tin n tar in the scatters, on the outskirts of shantytown. Soo-bourbon livin' at its finest.


Yildiz manufactures several SxS & O/U w/24,26 & 28" brls in 12, 20 & 67 1/2 gauge.

Since the basic 12 & 20 are $399 I'm curious where the extra 30 goes w/yute 20 and the extra C-note on the yute 67.5.

They claim the 12 & 20 Specials are around 186 clams more for the hand engraving and better furniture.

I ain't hearing any claims on where the extra money goes on the higher priced yute models.

I reckon it goes w/o saying that I'm a cheapskate on the prowl for a cheap date.

Problem is, that usually leads to a communicable disease...

"... a communicable disease."

We always thought that was ending up w/gal that could only shut her trap long enough to catch her breath.

I opened one today and its pretty sweet 410 since it does come with chokes unlike the SXS

I'm not a .410 guy, especially when 28 gauge ammo is somewhat readily available, yet fixed/choke tubes seem to be the major difference in the O/U & SxS.

Not that there's anything wrong w/"36" gauge.

I'm sure it'd be a hoot to shoot.

I'd just like a little more punch.

Then again I'd like a 24 gauge...

Years ago, the .410 bore was sometimes referred to as the "36 gauge". That's inaccurate, of course, because it's actually about a 67 gauge as I'm sure most here know.

Looked at one today, LOP looks to 14"+ why say it's a youth gun? I'm 6'7" and it felt good to me. I bought the Elegant SXS .410 when it came out and am happy with it but thinking I like the ejectors that come with the O/U, I'm tempted but need a anouther 410 like a hole in the head!

It's being refered to a 36 gauge even as we speak in some circles.

I think in this day & age it's sometims a European designation.


The LOP on the yute 20 O/U is 13.25".


It's as any other caliber that you enjoy.

One can hardly be enough.

It's what keeps from buying a 28 gauge...
