Does anyone have an opinion on the Century Arms Fury 12G (Catamount Fury). I see the magazine inlet is different from the Fury 1 and Fury 2. What are your thoughts?


It's not about the weapons you have. It's about the weapons you have when you need to use it. Never leave home without one or 2 or 3 big_smile.gif

Mine is disgustingly reliable.

The Fury 1 uses rock-and-lock Saiga-like (prioprietary) magazines.  The Fury 2 uses the VEPR system iirc.

Here are two pics of mine, made yesterday.  Mods are in-progress, mostly CSS gear.

In other places you say it is not reliable with lighter loads. To fairly answer his question, you should have said so here too.


The mags are dimensionally different from the Saiga 12-030/ Vepr style mags too. Mechanically, they both have S12 IZ-109 style gas.

I just test fired my NIB old stock Catamount Fury 2 straght of the box.   wiped the outside of the gun off and loaded and fired...    Shot 20 rds of Federal 2 3/4 inch 1 1/8 oz #7 1/2 shot target loads.    Gas setting on 2....  20 shots with no problems at all.      Im thinking im going to keep this one, convert it and have fun with it.

 

I REALLY like that LRBHO feature and the magwell.

GunFun is correct-
Unmodified, it usually short-strokes (FTE) light birdshot such as #8 field loads.  It has never faltered on full-power slugs and 00 or BB.  It is, after mods anger.gif , disgustingly reliable.  I haven't tested it with #8 however- the 1100 ran all that stuff off.

had the same results with my Fury 1, plus it will cycle Remington Gun Club loads but I don't get a warm feeling with the Remington's kind of like its running but doesn't want to. As is more or less normal Winchester Super Target were a no go.

We’ve been hearing a little negative feedback from you lately.

I've since installed a TAC-47 autoplug (not seen in pic).  I'll have a report hopefully this weekend.  Initial snapshots (2 rounds of #8) were successful.  I've not polished the internals yet, either.  I'm hoping for that "Straight from China" reliability without resorting to smoothing.  However, given the work done to Saigas and VEPRs, I won't find it odd if we wind up polishing some of the rails, the BC, and bolt.
