I feel like you wont be happy with the clone due to your desire for an original. Maybe consider the Mossberg 940 or Beretta 1301 if you don't want to spend as much. As for Turkish shotgun manufacturers, they're pretty decent for the most part if you stick to the better ones like ATA, Huglu, Stoeger, Retay, etc.

It's the Dickinson XXA-4. Picture looks like a M1014 style. I've not been able to find any video reviews on this model. Dose anyone have any experience with this brand? At 1/4 the cost of a Benelli it's a steal if it's as reliable.

Just buy a mossberg 930 spx and call it a day. Mine has been flawless even with old Walmart field loads..

Found nothing either. And everywhere else online says they are out of stock.

Did anyone actually get one from Turners? Or might this be another time that Turner's is posting ads for things they don't actually have?

This.
The evolution to Benellis Inertia system was never done better, but Remington's Versamax is a close second.

I could not help myself, so I did. Handled it in the store and it is now in jail for 10 days.

It is very similar to the Charles Daly version except different color and stock. I like its stock more than the CD clone. It felt as comfortable as the original Benelli. The mag tube looks the same as the CD version as well, thus the entire tube needs to be replaced from the receiver. So it may not be able to use standard Benelli mag tubes and will need aftermarket tube. If it uses CD type, then Dave Metalwerk has them.

SDS Imports Tac12 is a clone that got high reviews from Military Arms Channel. Posts were taken down from IG. My SDS bookmark leads to a blank page. Not sure if they are still importing.

M4 is gas. M2 is inertia.

Always wanted one but didn't want to pay for it. Ended up working out a trade for this one and have been very happy with it

I have a Dickinson model A212, not a M4 clone but a semiauto. Has an older single port piston over mag tube design. Build quality is fairly good and it runs pretty well. Bought it as a beater for cheap and has been good so far with around 400-500 out of it.

Finally got the chance to handle the Dickinson XXA4. It's made by Huglu, which is the same manufacturer who makes the CZ shotguns. They're known to be one of the better Turkish manufacturers so it should be good to go. The bolt lock up was smooth, unlike a lot of inertia guns which require it to slam forward.

Panzer is supposed to be selling the collapso stock for much cheaper than Benelli.

I certainly don't want a Benelli. For 500 bucks, I do want one of these.
