    A couple of weeks ago, I went to one of my favorite Gun Shops to pick up a couple of scopes and while I was there, I seen something that I thought looked cool.

    They had a MKA 1919. It&#8217;s a 12 Gauge Shotgun that looks like an AR rifle. It&#8217;s a Turkish made semi auto shotgun. I looked around YouTube for some videos about it and on one of the video&#8217;s a guy says the action is based on the Remington 1100 action.

    I am not sure if I will buy one or not. Part of me thinks my Mossberg 500A is good enough. Check it out, I think it looks interesting.

    It is turning out to be the next hot thing in shotguns, probably the Saiga killer. However, the 5 round magazine is all you can legally use in the stock variation. Firebird Precision is the leader in the high capacity versions. He has made 12 parts that, when converted, allow you to use high cap magazines and be 922r compliant. I'm not sure I would say it is based on the 1100, but it is a gas system. I've shot them and handled the Firebird versions. They are much better made than the Saigas and as such, even the converted ones are less than half what a modified Saiga would cost. If tossing a pound of lead in 3 seconds is your thing, check out Firebird Precision.

    Really? I think they look kind of cool. I just can't see me spending $800.00 for one. At that price, I would buy another AR instead.:supergrin:

    What is the advantage over a Remington, Beretta, Benelli auto other than looking military like..? Don't get me wrong I like all guns and would like to have one, but what gap does it fill..?

    The controls of the MKA 1919 are very similar to the AR rifle. This would allow for a smoother transition from rifle to a shotgun. <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>

    Most of my rifles are AR’s outside of a couple of 22’s. I sold my Beretta CX Storm 9mm carbine and replaced it with a RRA 9mm AR. I also bought a Spikes Tactical dedicated .22lr upper and put it on an RRA lower. <o:p></o:p>

    My .308 rifle is an AR10 type rifle. See where I am going with this. All the fundamentals are the same.<o:p></o:p>

    I just cannot justify the price for me.:whistling:<o:p></o:p>

    DI is still gas, but I don't know if it is an op rod or a gas piston system. If you need me to find out for you. I'll call Jim, get the skinny and post it up.

    Just wondering. As fast as the 556 gets fouled up I bet the 12 with a di setup would really jam up quick
