MKA 1919 Match Gen 2 Review

Competition shotguns are funny beasts. Tube mag shotguns feed and reload very differently than most semi automatic, box magazine fed rifles. Within the realm of 3 gun shotguns in the US, box magazine fed Saiga shotguns are popular for their fast reloads and high capacity. This Akdal MKA 1919 Match is Akdal’s second generation and comes with […]

20 vs 12

12 Gauge vs 20 Gauge

  12 gauge is such a popular shotgun shell that most of the time, when people are talking about their “pump action” or “semi auto” shotgun, the gauge is completely left out. Back when fixed chokes were the norm, a 12 gauge was a bit much for small game in close, so the 16, 20, […]

Pardus SS Review

So, this shotgun is almost the same as the Pardus SL. So much so, that I’m ONLY showing differences in this review. Primarily, this shotgun uses dual action bars, a front recoil spring on the magazine tube, and a bolt lockup that is closer to the breach than the SL. The action uses an aluminum […]

Mossberg Maverick HS12 Review

Love your break action shotguns and wish that someone made one for home defense and tactical applications? Wish no more, Mossberg has answered your dreams with the Mossberg HS12. Made in Turkey, this 12 gauge, single trigger, over/under shotgun follows along with Mossberg’s other traditionally-styled firearms turned tactical like their hilarious 464 SPX. Note that the […]

Benelli M4 Review

When it comes to semi automatic shotguns, Benelli is a massively popular make. Unlike the Benelli’s inertia-driven actions, the M4 uses 2 short stroke gas pistons to cycle the action. They call it their “ARGO” system (Auto-Regulating Gas-Operated.) At around $2500 in Canada, the M4 is not a cheap shotgun. The Benelli M4 is a combat/tactical […]
