Default SAR pump ?s

I have a chance to buy a used SAR "Special purpose pump shotgun"
You know, the evil black, non-VP approved type.

We haven't talked price yet and I know what they go for, so I'm not worried about that.

If youve owned one, tell me what you think of it.
I've owned a few Mossberg 500s and like those, so I'm just trying to get a bit of a comparison between the two brands.

Also, I'd like to know if you can remove the shoulder stock and replace it with a pistol grip. I haven't found any info about that yet.

Thanks

I have one.
Pretty awesome gun for the price.
I got mine for $380, but now SAR arms is becoming more popular, so now they retail for about $480-$500ish.
It takes benelli chokes, btw.

Thanks for the info, I'll talk to the guy next Friday and see how much he wants for it.
With Turkish guns, it seems to be hit or miss on quality (by brand, not within a company) so it's good to hear that.

Well I hear people puttin down SAR arms (mostly cause they don't like import guns), but SAR arms has had a few interviews with magazines and video groups and they actually have some pretty high quality manufacturing.

The only thing I could see being a problem is the aluminum receiver, but I have put some really hot and heavy exotic rounds through it without a problem.
My biggest problem with it is reassembly.
But I think it will get easier when you get the hang of it.

I've looked at them before and always thought they looked pretty good for the money. I like EAA and believe they bring some pretty good products to us.
I'll just have to work on a price and try to find a pistol grip so i can get rid of the shoulder stock.
I want it for a house gun.

I'm told they also Job out 2 models to Mossberg. The SA-20 standard and the SA-20 Self Defense, which is mine. Only difference is the pistol grip, and if you get the bantam pistol grip you get Spacers and a heavy duty recoil pad, which you don't even need unless your a 5 year old. My 5'2" wife shoots it from the hip...
World of difference then even a gas valve semi auto 12...

Looking around/ the cheapest I find are running $340 cash price. If they're in stock.
I'll see what kind of cash the guy wants this Friday.
I can get a new ASI for right at $200. Another Turkish gun.

Well, I guess this deal isn't going to happen. I can t get a firm price. Looks like he opened his mouth before he made the decision to sell it. Oh, well. There more shotguns to be had.
