I am finally expecting to get my 2 NPB licenses issued by next week. I have a budget of around Rs. 130-150k and need some advice (with arguments) from you guys on what to get.

I am buying these guns primarily for SD/HD so reliability is a must and aggressive/intimidating looks are a plus. If I do settle for the first choice there is the added advantage that I can take the GSG to Lahore range for some target shooting. I might want to use these for skeet shooting or light hunting in the future but its not a major factor for making the choice.

Here are the options/combinations I have come up with so far based on the threads in this forum.

1) Viper 12 gauge & GSG-5
2) Viper 12 gauge & FabArm SDASS
3) Franchi SPAS12 (and leave the second license unused for now)

I wouldnt recommend the GSG-5 for hd/sd. It is very ammo sensitive and prone to jamming problems.

Hatsan Escort magnum combo, as hassan has recently bout, & bikal's 22lr can also parallel your option 1. You have already made a very sensible selection. Congratulation for the licenses & good luck with your new toys.

What about a Mossberg 500 Tactical shotgun.Best gun for SD/HD.

+1 Balazona. Get a Mossberg 500/590. It may cost more, but in the long run it WILL be worth it. Also if cash is an issue, check out the Maverick 88 line.

I like the Mossberg.

From the options you listed I would go with #3. SPAS12 is much better than everything else you listed and it fits/suits youe criteria/needs as intimidating weapon for HD/SD is concerned.

Thanks for your recommendations everyone.

@Balazona - Did he quote a price for the Mossberg 500? and whats a reasonable price to pay for that piece?

Balazona
29-04-2009, 04:21 PM
They were asking 80K for that Mossberg 500 Tactical shotgun.u should call them now.

CougarMan
29-04-2009, 05:26 PM

In this range, you could find a used local SXS 12G. Or a rubbish quality new one made in Darra (very un-reliable).

You can find old, used foreign side by side guns in this price range. Condition would be so so but would be good for use. Recently a friend bought a French one in 14k.

Assalamu Alikum, Brother in this amount you can buy only a chaukidar's gun, which is just to show but not for use. you better collect more money then think to buy a gun. Sorry if I say something bad but reality is same.

Don't know about M3 but recently sold my slightly used Vinci for 225k. A friend sold his for 250k. Dealers are asking 270k for new one. Don't know about its availability but will let you know if I hear anything. Also try in Lahore.

You can have more than one gun on a single licence at the time the licence is issued. After that weapon cannot be added.

It is very reliable, battle field tested gun with 8 rounds capacity. You will get it in 90-100K in Pakistan in very good condition. About its looks, decide by yourself but to me its a firing cannon in hands

Bro! I am going through the same. I have short listed 02 over under shotguns in this range. One is Marocchi First-E Deluxe (26' and 28') and the other is Winchester Model 101. Marochci with 28' barrel has 2.85 Kgs weight and Winchester with 28' barrel has 3.175 kgs weight. Marocchi is available with Badaruddin & Sons, Hathi Chowk, Rawalpindi. I was there today and asking price was Rs. 145,000/-. One can try for bit discount. Winchester is available with Baksh Elahi & Co, The Mall, Lahore and asking price is Rs. 180,000/-.

But if you can increase your budget, you can go for Beretta A400 Xplor Unico with 28' barrel and with Kick-Off. It is also available with both of them (Badaruddin and Baksh Elahi). Both quoted price of Rs. 265,000/- but one of the member bought it for Rs. 255,000/-. Seniors like 12GAUGE, Mian-50 and Avais have recommended Xplor to me. Today, I also checked it. It is one hell of a gun. It is light, probably 2.8 kgs.

Pak Army had a lot of them and 25 years ago they used to let NCC cadets shoot them to their hearts' content. So, it should be possible to get hold of one.

You will need a PB license, though.

PS You had to be extra careful when inserting the clip as it was not difficult to seriously injure your thumb, otherwise.

You can also consider getting a magazine-fed shotgun, such as Akdal MKA 1919. The gun ranks high on performance standards for SD.
