    Does anyone have one or heard of them? I got a very nice bonus at work yesterday and was in the mood for a new shotty. The gun is gorgeous. I think it's Turkish made
    Here is a link

    350.00 out the door for a semi auto

    ETA: It has 3 chokes with it, I have never had a gun with this. I understand kinda what they do. How do I look at them and understand what they are meant to do? I plan on hitting skeet first. The gun had the middle choke already installed

    No replies? Did I stump the group?
    As I was having frosties last night, I thought about the gun. I think it's Turkish, which means they know alot about turkeys, how do you hunt turkeys?
    So I'm thinking I may have one of the best 12 ga ever made? I gotta cook and go to parties today, so I wont get a chance to shoot her. I will let you guys know later how she works out

    I took the baby out yesterday, she shoots fine once you figure out how to load her. She has a 3rd button in front of the trigger, that if not moved, it will not load a shell?
    So I have a safety button, a breach slam forward button and a load the shell button, some kind of safety?
    As I have said, I'v never had a semi so I dont know what they would come with. She shoots fine after you figure this part out except, it only holds 2 shells in the loader thing and one in the barrel. Does it have some sort of thing that only allows 2 shells? Can it be taken out?
    Thanks for the help guys

    I thought most shotguns that hold multiple rounds come with a plug in the loading chamber so the weapon will comply with most States' hunting laws. The plug is removable.

    Not sure about that model, but I was able to take a wooden dowel out of the loading tube of the last shotgun I bought, increasing capacity to 5 or 6 rounds from the original 2.

    Enjoy it!

    From responses, I think I can get more shells, anyone have a gun with 3 buttons? Why would they make them?

    I could not see the three buttons. What or where are they? You will probably have to unscrew the magazine cap in front of the handguard to remove the wood/plastic plug that limits the magazine capacity legal for hunting.

    I found my plastic rod that prevented me from loading more shells.
    If you look on the bigger picture of the gun with the barrel pointing left, to the rear of the trigger is a safety switch and on the front trigger guard is a black slide switch, that you have to slide before you can load a shell?
    Any ideas why the Turks did this?
    Thanks guys

    Possible reasons are
    1) to prevent accidental loading. :shattered:
    2) they were bored.

    I know nothing about shotgun....I just want some chili. :)

    If I recall correctly, the Silver Eagle semi-autos were supposed to be copies of the Benelli recoil operated system.

    The sliding switch on the off side of the gun is a new one for me though. Perhaps added so it is not exactly the same?

    I guess, I wont worry about the additional button, I can load 6 shells now, the gun is fun to shoot, and she is GORGEOUS.

    1clear, I made some chili last weekend, I had a few frosties and tried that bean thing that everyone speaks about, mmmmmmmm you guys may have something here :righton:
    If anything I can eat on it for a couple of days longer

    We finally got some good weather this weekend and I got to go and see if she shoots, and if I can hit anything. We all went out and shot some skeet, the gun was flawless, I learned how to load a semi, and it hit most everything I pointed at, the skeet I missed was all my fault.
    I can see this sport being very addictive.
    So if anyone is interested in low price, gorgeous and reliable 12 ga semi, I highly recomend The Silver Eagle
