THANKS! I pride myself in being "politically incorrect", but bringing up "ethnicity" can be a "touchy" subject and I did not want to offend. Even you! :wink: :wink: :wink:

Unfortunately, gonna have to disappoint.


A good call. Girsan has never made a shotgun before, they just copy old designs. They make a wonderfully adequate 1911 and an equally forgettable Beretta 92. See: http://www.girsan.com/en .

Change and development have become unchallengeable concepts within the last century. The key success in today's competitive world is to be able to adopt to such rapid changes. The best way to increase quality by enabling productivity and to develop continuously within the time.

GIRSAN, which has been performing activity for 17 years since it's foundation with an awareness of the fact of change, will preserve its Pioneer image within gun production sector through using the latest technology.


I really hope they didn't actually pay someone to write that.

Quality....Turkish guns....Girsan....Buds

Mama Mia! A quadruple oxymoron!


I've sent absolutely zero Turk shotguns back for repair, compared to several (mostly rifles) big name brands. Kind of stinks to send back a new in box DSA FAL that cost $1500 for repair, or an $800 Sig handgun, or an $1800 Sig 556 and have a $500 shotgun work without issues from the get go. Not saying they're all good, but they're not all "bad."

I'd like to prevent this thread from going down that road spoonbill. I appreciate the input though.


I think the whole point on Turkish shotguns is that overwhelmingly they
have been a disaster. Disregard that at your own peril.

There have been some that "maybe" have been okay. Maybe
the ones imported by really big names who possibly have
taken the trouble to inspect/oversee the situation then
maybe you might find a decent gun from Turkey made
for some big US name.

Ask yourself is Girsan a big US name.

All you really need to know about buying an Auto is this:
Buy an 1100. It is cheap, reliiable and parts will be available
for at least 200 years. On top of that you get the lowest
recoiling gun on the market. Don't make this hard, just
go with proven facts. You can also get them dirt cheap
on the used market.

The 1100 is heavy though, no? I can tell you this though, I had a EAA Turkish import semi auto that would surprise you in quality and never gave me one problem in any way. The only reason I don't still have it is it was a touch too long in the buttstock which caused me to shoot low pretty often. That thing didn't let me down when it came time shoot no matter what the weather.

These recently popped up @ buds gun shop. I wish I could find more info on them. The video makes them look pretty good and buds is backing them up with a guarantee. Anyone out there take a chance on them yet/planning to?


I have two MC312's here, just came in, one walnut / one camo . . . so, we will see how they do.
