If y'all need more convincing, let me give it a go;
The 1300/SXT is the strongest action made. Rotary bolt lock up to the barrel extension (something you AR shooters will understand).
Trigger group is the easiest and (IMHO) the best on the market. Shell stops are a part of the trigger group and come out as one unit.
Safety blocks the hammer like you AR. (the 870 and 500/590 block the trigger).
Spring loaded bolt/carrier makes for fast reloads.
AFAIK, all 1200/1300 parts and accessories interchange.
Yeah, Turkey is not the USA. Mexico is not the USA either. Many (if not most) 870 and 500 parts are made in Mexico. They are assembled in the USA. If you have a big problem with this, take your new SXT apart and (re)assemble it in the USA.
Turkey is one of our strongest allies in the middle east. They have been very cooperative in our war on terror
