    Have seen them on slickguns.com from time to time. Never in person.

    Sooooooooooooooooooooo, I went ahead and got one. The price was right for a used one and since it is for the 'garage' anyway didn't need to be unblemished. Just picked it up and not been able to take a real detailed look at it yet. NSFW
    First impressions that it is nicer than I expected, I thought that it being a Turkish copy, it would look cheap. But this is not the case.
    I will post more when I break it down for cleaning and shoot it.

    Is it a one of those 870 clones with parts interchangeability? Back when you were talking about scatter guns I listed a few.

    Another re-brand of Turkish shotguns? I have a very similar semi from Hatsan Optima Escort MPA-TS . The auto's are light compared to the pump, which I also had, they are good shotguns for the money, at least here in Canada.

    So, since I do not have gorilla arms I had to cut the stock to make it feel right. The damn thing had a 15.5" pull, cut it down to have 12.5".
    Does it look funny the way the recoil pad is larger? I am not sure if I can grind it to fit, plus I kinda like the extra area it gives.

    Looks a little funny....but if it doesn't bother you....no one else's opinion matters anyway.
