Its an SPZ ME 12 gauge. I looked at your links (thanks BTW) and I know Academy is kinda high on thier prices. This guy wants $330 for it and I'm kinda thinking I want it. Will I go wrong if I get it for that price and decide to sell later?
A new "Spartan" 310 is around that so I think you would do fine down the line. I personally think the Turkish guns are very underrated near the top end of their lines so provided the Yildiz is above the middle of the pack price/quality wise, I would say go for it. A working gun at a fair price...what the heck!

My experience has been the quality, fit and finish and reliability of Turkish shotguns to be hit or miss. I would look at the specific shotgun for things like trigger pull, fit of the wood and metal and if possible pull off the butt stock and look over the selector and safety mechanisms. Some of my buddies have CZ's that work great and some have CZ's that have been a headache. Of the lower end O/U's I think the parts related to the single selective trigger give the most head aches. Getting parts and fitting parts may be a problem also. I have a Khan Artemis in 410 that consistently doubles. I tried several times to have it fixed, It's pretty much a single shot for practical purposes.
