Diamond Panther Defense Pump

Anybody know anything about the "Diamond Panther Defense" 12 ga. pumps being offered by CDNN at $149.99? At that price it sounds like another version of the infamous Norinco pumps that have been around before. CDNN describes them as having "Old World Craftsmanship." The only question is: Which old world are they referring to?

I had never heard of them before the SOG flyer came out, but here's a link with some info about them:

http://www.adcosales.com/diamond.html

They are apparently made in Turkey.

Thanks for the link! I'm more interested now that I know they aren't ChiCom produced.

They are made in Turkey, and I have a new link for you.

Some of their guns are clearly clones of other manufacturers.
They have a Police model which is clearly a Beretta clone.
Who knows, they may be worth a look.

Thanks guys for the help! MLK18 was right - their "Police" model is a dead wringer for the Beretta 1201FP!

I'm not sure if the pump shotgun CDNN Investments is marketing is a Beretta clone or not. Apparently, CDNN is only marketing this one Diamond model. You can take a look at the entire Diamond line by clicking on one of the links in the previous posts. ADCO is importing a large variety of pump and semi autos from Turkey, and they look OK. I'd like to examine one or at least talk with somebody who owns one before investing.
