Rock Island Armory is now offering an entire catalog of shotguns, ranging in operation from single-shots and pump-actions to autoloaders and over-unders, and running the gamut from defensive, tactical-style platforms to sporting and competition configurations. The shotguns are being manufactured in Turkey to Rock Island’s specifications, and are designed to match the company’s ethos of affordable accuracy. And lest one think price is the only consideration, Rock Island is also guaranteeing the guns’ quality with the same lifetime warranty provided with its M1911s and other Rock Island-manufactured firearms. One model that caught my eye was the Traditional Single Shot 12 gauge, which sports a 20" barrel, 3" chamber, a muzzle brake and a suggested price of less than $150. rockislandarmory.com
