revo shotgun

Recommended Posts

I too had a stoeger which I bought here after using them in new Zealand. From the info I got there in NZ they were made by a turkish company called vursan who used benelli's inertia system with a rotating locking bolt. A benelli led lawsuit ensued due to patent infringement and supposedly, benelli were impressed with the engineering of the copy they subsequently acquired the company. They now produce the Stoeger M3000 sold in large numbers in the USA on the same inertia system now legally under licence since owned, operated by benelli whom are owned along with franchi by beretta I believe.

 

So with such extensive and modern CNC manufacturing facilities in Turkey is it hard to accept many parts originate there including very well made barrels. No doubt finishing and quality control take place in Italy and dare I say ,'made in italy' stamping takes place. There is certainly the odd case of a happy beretta owner here in the UK finding the 'Made in Turkey' stamp on their Beretta auto barrels. If the Turks use the specified grade of steel, machined and treated to Beretta's specs using Beretta's tooling at a lower cost, whats the problem?

The potential Beretta, Benelli, Franchi customer still gets the gun he/she wants for a reasonable price and

P. Beretta have a juicier profit margin. Thats modern global business at its best.

Then again, the Stoeger customer gets the same gun at half the price, albeit with a little less polishing and a few more rough edges.

I own Hatsans, a couple of Czech CZ's , a Browning and a Krieghoff.

 

Apologies for waffling on but the Turkish stuff has been great for me, and if they fit your budget and more importantly fit you, go for it. They all have decent warranty/guarantee packages like top brands and better/longer terms in some cases. What have you got to lose?

I read on another site that they're made by a company called KHAN blink.gif

 

They're Turkish so you can make your own mind up on that one.

 

I'd be inclined to do what Gordon says and look for a decent 2nd hand gun from a more reputable manufacturer.

 

 

Kebab barrels and turkish delight chokes .

That needs to go off to be investigated and I'd like to know Revos response Proof helps to stop these things.

go for a baikal mate

Baikals are ok apart from the fact that they are flat in the comb,tend to be made for people with short arms,and as long as you use light cartriges they dont kick like a mule,there are far better guns on the market then baikals.
