28 Guage Armsan Semi Auto [ Chris Clayshooter ]

Recommended Posts

I have a 28 guage Armsan  Semi Auto brought second hand and it hasnt done much work so I put a couple hundred 28 gramme  shells through it to loosen it up 

but I find it will not cycle 24 Gramme  fibre loads if I go back to 28 Gramme loads it recycles fine  I keep it clean and very lightly oiled ,Any Ideas ?

I know the grief...I think! After all if it needs 28 gram loads to work all you've now got is a lighter profile 20 Bore but firing expensive cartridges. Like all these things I'd email the importers. If gas operated or recoil operated I'd guess there will be a means to lighten the force needed to make the gun cycle so as to drive the breech block fully back. Ask the importers or try You Tube.

My armsan a620 (20 bore ) will cycle 24 grm loads fine but struggles with 21 grm loads . 

Your 28 b  should cycle 21 grms 

It really shouldn't need 28 grm to work .

Something wrong me thinks .

Is the oring split  .if so it will leak air forwards instead  of driving the piston /bolt .backwards fully .

No.but they are of a far better quality and properly engineered.not after an argument mate.

as it happens ive got an a300 bought new ten years ago,it cost me £850,the blacking is 3rd rate,the wood resembles a pallet,but its reliable....i also have an a620 armsan,cost £395,it shoots just same as the beretta for half the price,even cheap turkish guns have better finished barrels an wood than the outlander.

I have the same thing with my sons 28g armsan they are cheap Turkish rubbish but with a 28g load they work well and kill well my boy loves it I have offered to buy him a 20g bretta or browning semi to replace it and he wants to keep it so I looks like 28grams is the way forward I guess
