  1. If you have a spare factory lower, left over after replacing it with a T&N or FB aluminum, let me know. Stripped is fine.

    California Legal MKA

    Nope, nope and nope! Any shotgun with a detachable magazine is an assault weapon in the fine state of California. Evil features dont matter, detachable magazine is all the evil needed. Three options: 1) make it non-semi 2) Fix the magazine 3) register as AW. And in the future, NEVER ever get legal advice, or any advice really, from people working at a gun store.

    MKA-1919 Replacement Barrels

    XN or pre-XN? If the latter, I might be convinced to sell one.

    XN vs Match drive block

    Ok, thanks. Guess Im depending on T&N to spit out a few spare ones to get this gun up and running again..

    Collecting dust

    I have two Firebird MKAs, theyve been running like Swiss watches for years (I had one of the first batch of MKAs FB made) until now. Within 6w, both broke down. First one was an XN with a broken drive block, second one I dunno, since i havent been bothered to take it apart yet. :/

    Does anyone know if they're the same?

    New R&R Parts for Vepr 12 Shotguns

    Is his magwell going to work with the drum?

    Has anyone tried a rifled choke?

    Just back from the range and verified zero (@50y) with my Fiocchi slugs and the three shots went into a nice clover with all holes overlapping, so the group must have been well under 1" (c-c). I havent tried the full power (1600fps) Fiocchis in my MKA, but in my M2 they're as accurate as the reduced ones and only drop a little less at 100 (8" vs 4" with a 75y zero)

    New Video: SGM Tactical 25 Round Vepr 12 Drum!!

    Anyone tried if the drum will work with the competition magwell?

    Mag Couplers

    How did they work? Did you figure out a shell stop for the second magazine, since I'm guessing they'll start popping out with recoil?

    NEW US Made Magfed Shotgun...Coming Soon

    My Akdals dont really have any issues either, but I fear the day something on them will break and I have to wait for months to get a replacement part, if I can get it at all. Not going to put myself in that position again. The other reason being Turkish quality, or the lack there of and the seemingly non-existent QE. Sure, an XTR may run, but then something breaks and replacement parts dont really fit because tooling or subcontractor was changed. Just look at the Akdal mag situation.... And comparing it to guns made in the Philippines is a bit of an apples and oranges comparison. I have no issues buying guns that are made in the Czech republic, Austria, Germany or Belgium, which all make guns and send to the US. It just aint worth the risk and (potential) headaches to buy Turkish for me. YMMV

    1919 Match Short Barrel

    Should be ok with a 16" barrel. That one looks to be shorter though, 12" or so? They could import it with a 16" and cut it down here, but then they'd have to make it 922 compliant to sell to civilians, AFAIK

    Genesis Arms Gen 12

    Will be an interesting race between this one, the SKO-12 and the UTX-12. Hopefully we'll have at least one reliable US made mag fed shotgun by the end of the year.
