I wanted to start a discussion on Turkish made firearms, specifically the shotguns that have been so abundant as of late. I was hoping to hear some informed opinions and have some experiences shared in relation to these firearms. I've seen a lot of disdain for these no-name Turkish made shotguns around the internet and I wonder to myself if the people that bash them have actually owned one or if they are simply just subscribing to the theory of others for the purpose of riding the negative bandwagon simply for the sake of it. I personally just purchased an Akkar Churchill 612 (imported by EAA) and so far it has been great. It is the same shotgun as the CZ 612 which seems to have gotten a slight bit of attention years ago. I purchased it as a bedside gun and plan to take it down to the range once every 2-3 months and put a box or two of shells through it. So, my personal opinion thus far is that it is solid for what I paid. In other words, a decent gun for the money. Is it the same quality as a Remington 870 or Mossberg 5xx - no, surely not. But for what it is I feel like it's just fine. I look forward to hearing the opinion of others here on this forum. Thank you!
