Glad you liked the pics!, yes the guns in the background are Hatsan Escorts sporting range. The cartirdges do look odd in the pics, and I got more of today's reloads (buck & slug). The yellow/oranage ones are just 32G No.4 birdshot (UK size), made by RC in Italy.

I forgot to mention the magazine cut-off witch located on the reciver where the bolt release usually is. This works well with the spare round holder in the stock.

I'm not happy with the slugs I loaded, they are by low recoil data and do not burn the powder fully, not to mention the 8 inch flame that leaves the ejection port on the last round hold open of the bolt. Functions fine though, even with that low pressure.

The '00' (11/0 Italian) buckshots are nickel plated and copper plated.

VERY nice shotgun, sir!


However, if you would like to emigrate, here in the US, the Hatsun Escorts sell for £182 right now.

Thanks!.

Hey, don't, just don't! . Rip-off Britain, you wouldn’t believe the cost of shooting stuff (this was a very cheap gun, for here).

I agree, but its amazing the difference in culture, as it is extremely rare for someone to suggest that openly on a forum or just in conversation in Britain. Its just not talked about even though the UK has extremely high burglary/home invasion rates (because the crims know that they have little to fear in doing so).

Good looking shotty and awesome pics! Great to see that people aren't giving up on their hobby even though you have very strict gun laws over there.
