Default Turkish made Kral shotguns

Hey, anyone got any info on these shotguns? I saw a tactical 12 gauge on a Canadian website that "looks" pretty decent. I have to admit this name is new to me so I'm looking for any info, good or bad, on this company Kral.

What's the price?

I'm a bit put off by my experience with Turkish firearms which was very very bad.
I had a TPK which was a copy of the PPKS. Outside finish was fine but internally it sucked.
The machining of the firing pin guide in the slide was so bad that it would at times pierce primers.
That was nothing.
The pin would jam up and the darn thing would discharge upon racking the slide and/or go full-auto.

So before you buy get a close look and do some more research.

As a counterpoint, Academy Sports & Outdoors is importing and selling the Sarsilmaz line of pistols (Turkish Cz75 clones) w/o any complaints being heard about them.

The same Turkish plant that makes these, also makes the "Armalite AR-24" pistols.

One of them is $349.00 and the other is $325.00 Canadian dollars. The currency converter lowers that about 25 bucks on each one for U.S. dollars.

I am wondering if there are any trade restrictions, as you can also find norinco m14's for a reasonable price also on some of the canadian sites but importation is impossible.

Charles Daly sells Turkish shotguns really cheap. Almost too cheap to think they have any quality. They have zero resale value and no way of getting replacement parts.

They might be decent quality but think of them as throw aways as I doubt you'll be able to get one repaired or sell it for much.

Excellent points. I think I'll reconsider after sleeping on it. Although it would have never been a first line of defense, it was just something more along the lines of a shotgun to play around with.

An ATF Form 6 would be required for importation of the shotgun.
