This is a Mossberg Over/Under shotgun. John Browning is rolling in his grave. I checked mossberg.com and it is not shown under there product list.

    Looks like the turkish guns I've been seeing everyone's labels on. Pretty well made guns for the money though I would rather see a better quality steel and less engraving. The wood on those things is a-one as is the finish. Watch, Turkey will be the next big gun importer. Start with shotguns and go to rifles then pistols undercutting everyone along the way. I'd buy one in a minute if I needed one.

    i don't like the engaving myself, it looks kinda cheap and half-assed. but i do like the gun overall and the price. i'd buy one. i like the color of the stocks, at first i thought it was polymer in the thumbnail and i almost puked! but all in all, i'll be looking for one as soon as i can afford it.

    I thought it was polymer too, hence the "EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW".

    Does anyone know if Mossberg makes these in 410? I want an O/U 410 that I won't have to spend an arm and a leg for. Looked at the Khan and the Baikal, but haven't decided anything yet.

    Not a bad looking piece of wood.

    I handled one a month or two ago. Better fit and finish than the russians, fit better, but didn't feel as solid. Made in turkey. Not a mossberg, but a mossberg International. They were on their website. I suspect that they are under a diffreent canopy to save them if the warranty, or liability becomes an issue.

    warrenty information for the two websites is the same. So I think they just called them international because they are imported.

    Looks pretty decent to me with a reasonable price.

    I wonder if this is made by Yildiz with a Mossberg label?

    Just picked up my Mossberg Reserve (bought from seller "daimond" in Silt, CO...nice guy and good, honest dealer).

    I had shot my buddy's Russain Baikal and definately think the Mossberg is a nicer feel, weight, balance than the Baikal.

    Dollar for dollar I don't think anything is going to stack up to it...sure the finish isn't the greatest...but you just can't compare it to the finish of a Citori or other high-dollar O/U. And besides, it's not the finish that breaks the bird!

    Now to work on the 5 and 6 towers of five-station!

    They look like good functional guns. The cheesey gold paint should be left off; less engraving too. The wood is beautiful and they funciton great.
