GUN CITY SHOTGUNS

Print Post  
Any out there used any of the gun city branded shotties?
Any thoughts if you have,  they are cheap but are they nasty?
Looking to buy a cheap shotgun probably a mossberg maverick as i like mossbergs no frills but reliable approach to firearms.
But i saw these gun city things and was wondering if anyone has owned or used one.
Cheers.

This won't answer your question but the word Gun City should set of an alarm bell or the bull shit detector. Be aware!

Ive used the pumps, there o.k probly a little more robust than the maverick but heavy and clunky. It doesnt really "shuck shuck" it click clacks Grin
But if it dont work you could throw it at your prey and kill it that way. I had a maverick for years and it never missed a beat.
  

Of all the guns Ive loved before,

I have a harrington and richardson 20 ga pump (they are made by hawk in China),I like it actually,very smooth and reliable so far,much smoother in operation than the 20 ga maverick pump.

Actually , It  wouldn't matter if it was good or bad , as the price is so close to a REAL Rem870 , do your self a huge favour and buy the Rem870 .

Most of the american reviews say that the norinco 870 copy is improvement on the remmingron 870.  Something about a metal trigger guard and twin guide rods??  The budget end of the american gun market is fairly shitty these days so I could believe it.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

The Rem870 has dual action bars , one either side , so does the Mossberg500/590s.

A lot of the very old pump guns had only one bar off the forend , like the Itcha37

I know this is a very old post and I'm commenting on it....sorry..

Have one of these in 18.5in Ghost Ring. Awesome shotty, paid $350 about 9 months ago and have probably put close to 1500 rounds through her.

Never jammed, misfed or missed a beat.
