As I understand it, these are manufactured in Turkey. Saw one at the gunshow today and it seemed well made and finished, and was going for $130. Anyone with any experience pro/con?

I've never heard of the company. Also, $130 for a semi???? That is extremely low, and leads me to think that they are probably not very well made guns.

The $130 was for one of the pump versions.

I too would like to learn more about these. Certain aspects are well suited for some of my uses.

I bought a waterfowl and turkey combo Escort shotgun slightly used as a demo gun from a dealer for only $300. He told me that it had less then 2 boxes through it. When I took the gun out to the range the third shell wasnt feeding right. It was getting stuck halfway out of the tube. I took it to the local gunsmith and he tested it out and told me the shell follower was corroded and was grinding in the tube. He replaced it with a remington brand shell follower. I havent gotten to the range to test it out yet.

I think that's way too much to pay. Ironically, the more expensive finds just by fate happen to be the ones that don't work as well.
