New for 2020: EAA Corp. Churchill 512 Cowboy

posted on August 23, 2020
New for 2020, European American Armory (EAA Corp.) has introduced a side-by-side within its Churchill line of sporting shotguns that are imported from Turkish-based Akkar. The new 512 Cowboy, chambered for 12 ga., commemorates firearm design during the Wild West era—emblazoned on the sideplates of the case-colored steel frame is a stagecoach drawn by horses. The coach gun became a staple defensive tool and today is an iconic symbol of the past.

The EAA Corp. 512 Cowboy measures 37.5” long. The shotgun’s hinge-action receiver is fitted with 18.5” steel barrels and walnut furniture. The action of the Churchill 512 is also fitted with a manual safety mechanism, as well as a manual extractor, so no need to worry about have to bend over to pick up spent hulls. The gun is designed to be compact and lightweight, making it easy to maneuver and an effective tool.

Akkar threads the muzzles of the 512 Cowboy with Beretta’s Mobil-style choke threads. A white reference bead is fixed to the barrel’s top near the muzzle for sighting reference. The compact design of the 512 Cowboy, combined with the versatility of the 12 gauge shotshell, makes for a scattergun that can be used for myriad tasks, such as competitive target shooting, hunting and home and camp defense.

The classically-styled 512 Cowboy exhibits a degree of fit and finish Akkar is known to produce. The hand-selected walnut stock features an oil-rubbed finish, and the gun’s barrel is deeply blued. EAA Corp commands a MSRP of $969 for its imported Churchill series 512 Cowboy shotgun.
