    Don't think it's hit the market yet.

    Run a search. I think there's at least one guy here on the forums who's got one and has done a couple of short writeups on it.

    Centerfire Systems has them according to their last flier. Thanks for the link, a search for MKA-1919 came up empty which is why I posted.

    It has been out for some time actually.

    I plan to get one. Some of people whose opinions I really respect, like the guys at Tromix, have had good things to say.

    I'd avoid the first run of them because their top rail is not a standard rail. They changed that on the second batch of them. The aftermarket is coming along nicely. Right now I'm not sure what the availability of extra mags is. Without mags a mag fed shotgun loses the things that makes it appealing.

    Various 922r compliance parts are out or under development. Once higher capacity mags are available I plan to get one for an SBS project. I had planed an SBS Saiga 12 but the MKA seems like a better option to me.

    I'm not wild about the factory look, but a tromix stock adapter does wonders IMHO.

    I have not found higher capacity mags yet but have not been chasing them either. Centerfire systems usually has the MKA 1919 along with Atlantic Firearms.

    I do not believe higher caps have been offered by anyone. I'm fairly certain I would have head if that were the case. I have heard rumors of some options that are coming though.

    I see the extra mags every where that carries a good supply of the MKA.
    here is just one example. http://centerfiresystems.com/search.aspx?find=mka

    but I am sure Atlantic will have them if not now very shortly, Atlantics customer service is very good from my experience.

    Higher capacity magazines (first 10 rounds, later 14) are in the works, as are a lot of other after-market modifications.

    This gun has gotten the attention of a lot of people in the 3 gun community.

    Ouch $40 for five rounders. I'd hold off for the higher capacity mags which I can't imagine being more.
