    Opinion: Turkish Shot Guns, Are they any good?

    I recently let myself explore a few. Ergnomics, drop, comb & feel were horrible.

    They were pretty I have to agree to that but I was wondering if the semi auto cycle loads flawlessly esp the weaker loads and if they can take high volume shooting.

    How do they pattern with / without chokes? Has any of you made a pattern chart?

    From 1-10 how would you rate different makes & models? And Why?

    Waiting for your comments.

    I think u mean Ergonomics.BTW,Sarsilmaz and Hatsan Escort r very famouse models in Europe.Specially UK hunters like Hatsan semi auto.they have good reliablity with weaker loads.I have Hatsan Escort Aimguard.and i found this gun much better than Maverick 88 security model.

    For a short time I thought (.BTW,Sarsilmaz) was actually a word. I am assuming you meant 'are' for a 'r'. I could not understand continuation with small letters after a period. But again we should keep our eyes on the donuts and not the holes(o) ;)

    Anyway, have you tried skeet loads? How many shells have you fired in a single day without cleaning your shotgun? Have you ever hunted with it? Why do you think it's better than a Mav 88? Is HE Aimguard the best amongst the Turkish lot?

    Have you tried patterning your shotgun?

    I dont have membership of that range where skeet shooting is allowed so far.and i could only fire 50 rounds in one day from this gun and didnt face any malfuction.Basically this shotgun is a clone of Remington 870 model shogun but its reciever is Aluminum alloy.Remington 870 design is true and tried.Turkish made shotguns usually have Chromel ined barrels.Those chrome lined barrel r very easy to clean.

    @glxspk,
    seems you have some degree of knowledge about turkish shot guns. what about russian. very interested in buying either a turkish or russian over/under with auto ejector and interchangeable chokes for skeet/trap or small game hunting.
    Can you please recommend one, based on user views. Also good price and place of availability. Would be grateful.

    Not really Wajahat. I have had no experiance with a Turkish make. Ive had experiacce with almost all European and American models but never Turkish. Russian Baikal semi auto is a good weapon for hunting but they cannot handle high volume shooting. Ive seen them all break to include a Turkish at skeet, but again that could be a faulty piece.

    The reason I started this thread was to get to know more about them. Specially shot pattern & pellet distribution of the ones coming with chokes. I'll buy some for hunting in rough areas and from a vehicle if the outcome of this thread comes in favor of them. Most of my premium shotguns have been dented & scratched from being carried in vehicles.

    Does it come with recoil pads? Rem 870 is a pump. Your Hatson, is it pump or semi auto?

    but usually when it comes to 12 guage the most prefered brand all over the world is of USA. Actually turkish first made ther reputation in the handguns and now they are coming with the line of pumps and repeaters, keeping in view the peppiness of today's crowd.

    I would say that Turkish shotguns r the best thing that one can get in this price range. I have an Akkar Karatay which I bought it for 33K. Although it makes u tired after 20+shots or so because I think its foregrip is just too far to get a steady hold but what else could I have asked for in 33K.

    Omkhan,u can change ur LOP(lenght of pull) by changing different pads on ur Full stock.that is inherent problem with Folding stocks which u r facing right now.

    it is just for Rs 26K at National Traders Lahore.it is also available at PARA with a different name Viper.it is the same shotgun like Hatsan Escort Aimguard but has TriPAD stock system.
    NOTE:price is same for both of them.

    But Turkish sotguns are only prefered because of their comparative affordability in the range.

    thats the best comprehension of the ISSUE. And it effectively applies in most cases. Ask someone if a Glock & a Taurus is priced the same, which one they will buy???

    But I've heard, not sure, a Stoeger's more reliable than a Taurus?

    Thats what Ive been asking. If the owners of Turkish shotguns who have used them extensively for hunting are happy with their weapon. What make brand would they advise? etc.

    Those who have used Turkish semi autos for more than three hunting seasons complained (most but not all) about its firing pin being ineffective or damaged. Sarsilmaz has been considered to be the better one among the Turkish brands by about 7 users who i know. They are the ones using other premium brands as well, therefore in a better position to judge.

    Again, its value for money in looks & performance, both. Good for hunting. Doesn't hurt when gets scratched. As effective as premium brands. Skeet has to be tried & those having such facility may do this as a favor to others.

    HA users are as well satisfied, therefore, falls in the league.
