    I keep seeing these things at Gun.Deals & I honestly don't know anything about them. They seem to be reasonably priced. I am just curious does anyone have any experience with them or know anything about them. All I know is they seem to be manufactured in Turkey. Any information would be appreciated. Here is a link to one I saw posted. https://www.sportsmansguide.com/pro...Link&cjevent=72584c25cd2a11ea83d6003c0a24060e

    A decent pump doesn’t cost a lot of money. A friend has had an H&R Pardner pump for five years that’s been flawless.

    In addition Dickinson SxS’s have a decent reputation among good quality lower priced stack barrels so that would give me some confidence too.

    I will never end up ordering one online, I just have enough shotguns. BUT..... if I were to walk in a store and see one for those prices I've been seeing on gun.deals I will definitely walk out with one just to try it out.

    Seems to be a lot of shotguns coming out of Turkey lately. A few weeks ago I was out looking for a pump 12ga. I could only find two in town. One used Mossberg 500 at the pawn shop and one new shotgun from turkey at the gun shop. " I forget the brand". Both for around $300. The Mossberg was in really good shape but I thought over priced. I never heard of or ever had any experience with any guns from Turkey. Anyway I decided on the Mossberg.

    Turkey used to produce some really good shotguns and some seriously bad ones. Today it seems to me that Turkish pumps and semi’s are good quality on the whole. With break barrel shotguns I don’t know because I’ve never owned or shot one.

    If you can't get ahold of a used Mossberg or 870 for a good price, maybe it's worth a try?

    I'd like to think it would be hard to mess up a pump shotgun, but even domestic manufacturers have had issues. The Dickinson is a complete unknown.

    When I was deployed to Turkey for Iraqi freedom, many in my unit were buying Turkish shotguns and sending them home. I saw some pretty nice work on some of them. I have a Limberta. It works very well. Stock is a little cheap for my liking, but otherwise its ok.
