last week i was visiting a local dealer and he showed me a semi 12 ga. it was called GAZELLE they are from turkey. it was light and had a beautiful turkish walnut stock . i bought it right then and really have shot well with it.he said that was the first batch he had recieved and that they were new to the u.s. so he had no feed back on how well the gun shot. anyone who has shot or has info i`d like to hear from. iv shot about 400 rounds through it so far without a jam or a problem and im shooting reloads . any feed back would be appreciated

i know $329 makes the gun sound cheap, but it looks alot like a berrata in style. and iv had several guess at the cost and most assume i paid 600 or more for it. thats kinda why i was wondering if anyone else had used one of these b4 in case there is problems im not aware of. BREAKEM ALL AND HAVE FUN

Here is some info from Blue Book on the Gazelle shotguns:

Current trademark established circa 1970, and manufactured by Hisar Avcilik & Doga Sporlasi San Ve Tic. Ltd. Sti., located in Konak-Izmir, Turkey. Currently imported and distributed by Ema Distributors LLC, located in Pineville, NC.
Gazelle Arms currently manufactures a line of good quality, inexpensive shotguns, including semi-autos, SxSs, single shots, and O/Us. Current MSRs on the semi-auto shotguns range from $345-$390, while the O/U is priced at $500.

I have found no web page for Gazelle Arms or for Ema Distributors. Those that know my posts well know I love inexpencive imports as a way to get new blood into the sport, that said I will see what I can find on these guns.

I have seen the Gazelle SPA300 o/u here for about a month now. Duhnams Discount sporting goods carries them and they do look like a good deal for the $299 that they are asking. That is the only one I have seen and the site says that is the only o/u that is currently imported here. 3" chambers, 5 choke tubes rated for steel, a custom shotgun sock, :roll: and double triggers. I hope they start to send more of their product over they have what they call crossfire shotguns for people that are right handed but left eye dominant. I would be tempted to pick up there SP Trap for like $500 if it gets here.

I just bought the spa300, it felt good but I need to learn more about how to set up the chokes for skeet use. The double trigger didn't seem to be a problem for me.

I returned a century arms semi-auto 12 ga. clip model (chinese made) to get this one. Scary I ran about 4 - 5shot clips through it and suddenly a chunk of metal from the trigger house broke off and the clip came flying out. :shock:

I shot my Gazelle 300 in a summer trap league in Minnesota this year. I ran an average of 100 rds. thru it every week. How do I like it ??? Well, let's just say I have this beautiful trophy sitting on my mantle - the inscription reads "2003 AA Summer League Champions" - I out-shot a whole lotta guys whose guns cost them 10 times what mine cost. I LOVE THE GUN !!! Best 300 bucks I've EVER spent...

Hey do any of you guys know anywhere online I can even check one of these things out to mabey buy or something, I am relly interested in an O/U but I dont want to cough up a ton of money for one because I'm not sure I'll like it and if not it could always be an extra for that price.

Hi everyone - I have not purchased a shotgun yet, but when i went to my local dealer (Surplus City, Feasterville, PA 215-364-7130) he showed me this shotgun by a company called Gazelle. Very nice, then he told me the price ($300) and i got scared (why so cheep). I had looked at different brands and never heard of that one. That night i did a search for gazelle shotgun on yahoo and it brought me to this site. This is a great website. My research stoped here. Great site for learning and info.

update on repair : they had my new part and dealer fixed it took 3 days. pretty quick response time if i say so myself. what ticked me off was the rep from the manufacturer told my dealer that my gun was made to shoot a 1,000 rounds a month. i told him just for that im pumping 2,000 through b4 xmas . :lol: i didnt buy this gun to look at i told him but to shoot. doesnt matter though i found a used 390 im trying tonight which ill probably buy. i know it can handle it
