Default Yildiz shotguns

Just as it says. I have owned one shotgun in my life but have been thinking about getting another. Academy sports sales the Yildiz brand. I have looked at them and they are not a bad looking gun. Specifically they have an over/under 12 gauge for less than 500 dollars. Does anyone have any experience with them. Thank you.

I found this review. They sound like pretty decent guns. NOT a $2000 Beretta, but still nice.

If I shoot a shotgun once a year it will beat what I have done in the past so there for I can't justify spending 2000 bucks for the Berretta. This may be the ticket. Thank you.

Should be a pretty good shotgun. I have owned Turkish made shotguns before (DeHaan) and you get a lot of quality for the money.

I would say that it really depends on what you are going to do with it. With U/O's you get what you pay for.

If you are going use to hunt a couple times per year, I would say it's just fine. However, if you plan on shooting thousands of rounds of trap or skeet, there is a good chance it will break or wear out fairly soon. Getting parts might be an issue.

Many people will tell you that you're better off buying a pump or semi auto rather than spending $500 for a low end U/O and I tend to agree.
If you shop around and keep a keen eye open you can pick up used Brownings, Rugers and other "name" brand shotguns for only a couple hundred more. That is what I did and I have no doubt my Citori will out last me and whoever ends up with it when I'm long gone.

The Yildiz shotguns are a lot of value for the money. Chrome-Molly steel barrels, aircraft aluminum receiver, auto ejectors, and REAL Turkish walnut furniture. Plus, it comes with 5 chokes. Briley custom makes chokes for them as well.

The only reason why these guns are not more expensive is because nobody else in the U.S. can get them.

Plenty of people get them for trap, and they do last. The gun will be a little tight out of the box, but like anything else it will break in.

Thanks guy's. Went to Academy in Rogers AR today and one followed me home. Not sure what they put on them to keep them from rusting during shipping. It's not quite as bad as cozmoline but not far from it either. Again thank you for the replies.
