They look really nice, but how do you get one? They sure resemble a Yildiz, they are even light like a Yildiz.

Here's a link... http://www.emperorfirearms.com/

The O/U guns surely do look exactly like a Yildiz. I'd give one of their SxS guns a try if they had the right number of triggers and a properly shaped stock.

we don't have Yildiz in the Midwest so it will be interesting to see if these trickle into some dealers to look at. i know Academy Sports is a fair sized chain and has an exclusive contract with Yildiz but i have always been surprised they didn't find another way to sell there guns in this country. maybe this is it. same factory different name.

They look very similar to a Yildiz, but they're not. These shotguns are made by KOFS Ltd. in Turkey. Here is a link to their website.

Holy Ship! They're coming out of the woodwork one and two a week. This is yet another as yet unheard of (by me at least) Turkish manufacturer. While I agree that their SxSs have the wrong shaped stock and not enough triggers, Chuck may sort that out with Kofs. But the finishing on these looks pretty good - you know for totally un-innovative, copy-cat, knock-off blaah, blah , blaaaahhh...

Yeah, but they're not priced at $5K for a plain Jane, let alone for one that has decent engraving. So everybody knows they're not as good as a Beretta, suffer from weak steel, 2x4 wood, can't last, etc. etc.

That gun on the top of the web site looks just like my
Sons Yildiz special! One of the outfitters here uses Yildiz for loaner/ guest guns and has had no issues with them.... Although they are just cheap low quality Turkish guns.

I think we're seeing the first example of a Turkish manufacturer reverse engineering another Turkish gun. Whoda thunk?

Now that right there was FUNNY! :lol: :lol: :lol:

I will say....they look interesting. If Chuck makes them see the light about DT/English I think one will find it's way to Falls Village, Ct.

No....he gave no time frame. Below is a copy/paste of what he said on the subject.

By the way, take a look at the attached catalog. We haven't announced it yet, but these are the new double guns we will be carrying.


If anybody wants to see the catalog, let me know your email address and I'll forward the catalog he attached to his email to me.

Or if anybody can tell me how, I'll post it here. I just have no idea how to post a PDF file here on the forum.

Yes there are! And I could learn to love one with a shortage of triggers, but the pistol grip is a non-starter for me. If when TR Imports puts them on their website there is an English-stocked SxS I will be having to send Chuck some money!
