I've heard about Turkish shotguns before, but never really did any research on them (until now). I have a buddy that is currently deployed to Turkey right now, so I'm trying to decide on a shotgun that he can have shipped back home for me. I have a pump 12ga Rem870, so I'm thinking an O/U in 20 guage, for a lightweight trap/small game hunting gun. I've done a little research on Yildiz and a few others, but any experience/knowledge/reccomendations would be great!

Thanks

I have two yildiz shotguns, they are extremely well made guns for the price. Both of them are 12 ga. one is O/U and one is SxS. For the money it would be hard to find a better shotgun. Mine were $600 a piece new at a small shop in Shreveport Louisiana.

On one of my many trips to Turkey I bought a Huglu 12-GA O/U back in the 1980s that was very nice - hand engraved; was a beautiful gun. Should have never sold it.
