Turkish Invasion!

Forget the Russians, it's the Turks that are invading!  This week has been a flood of Turkish built guns coming in for customers who have been kind enough to let me do a little tabletop reviewing to give my thoughts on the overall quality and design.  I've posted numerous times about Turkish made guns and their surprisingly good quality for the price, so hopefully this bunch holds true to that pattern.

Here's the list of what I've gotten in and will be doing overviews of this week and next:

  • TISAS Zigana Sport (9mm)
  • EAA/SAR B6P (9mm)
  • SAR S-120 (9mm)
  • Girsan MC312 Tactical (12ga)
  • Linberta/Buyuk Huglu LSTAC G2 (12ga)
  • Sarac/Pasa Makina PASIMAX (12ga)
  • NATMIL BR-99 (12ga)

It's interesting to see the variety of arms factories coming out of the woodwork in Turkey, where up until recently Sarsilmaz was the only somewhat well known maker to buyers here in the US.  Generally importers of inexpensive guns will downplay or outright mask the original manufacturer, either to promote their own brand or because let's face it... "Buyuk Huglu" isn't a name that's going to catch on with American buyers.

Stay tuned for a whole bunch of posts with a whole lot of pictures!
