Has anybody have any experience with these? I just can't bring myself to buy a Benelli for now. Thanks. Its on sale at Turners now for $349.

No experience with the semi-auto, but I got my girlfriend an Escort pump for her birthday and she digs it. Very smooth action, has had no problems with it... And it looks really nice too. Alot of people don't trust the name though because its not a large company and finding parts for it might be a hassle. Haven't had to do so yet, but the guns still pretty much brand-new.

All I know about them is that they are Russian made. The sales guy I talked to at Turners said it was decent and did what it was supposed to do.

they are made in turkey... which model is available there? barrel length and what does it include?

I've had one for about a year and a half. It has performed flawlessly. I've got to have fed 2 or 3 thousand rounds through it by now. The only issue I've ever had with it is every once in a great while, a spent shell won't eject all the way, no big deal. Great gun for the money. It actually is pretty damn close to identical to my brothers Charles Daly semi auto.

if it looks like the Charles Daly SG, then it is probably the same thing. A company in Turkey called Akkar makes them.

I'm a bit partial to my Huglu (turkish also-imported by CZ). It looks finer and the wood was really better than a $300 gun ought to have. It operates about the same. I just had my first jam with it (about a year of shooting it. Seems to work as well as the escort).
