European American Armory Corporation (EAA Corp.) announced it'll be importing hinge-action shotguns for 2020, a vast departure from the company’s often-futuristic lineup of AR-inspired shotguns. The new line of Turkish-built shotguns will include over-under and side-by-side models, from field- to sporting-grade variants all wrapped under the Churchill banner.  

Starting with the all-new Churchill 812 Sporting Orcap, this over-under 12-ga. shotgun features 3” chambers with barrels that are hammer-forged and back-bored for shot-to-shot pattern consistency. Available barrel lengths are 28” or 30” and include a 10 mm-wide ventilated rib with fiber-optic front sight and mid-length bead. Barrels are threaded for extended choke tubes, and five are included with the gun.

Receivers in the 812 series are built from steel and feature automatic ejectors, manual safeties and a user-selectable trigger. Each 812 shotgun features a hand-picked Turkish walnut stock and fore-end with a hand-rubbed oil finish, along with deep checkering. Receiver-finish options include nickel and blued, and each nickel- and blued-receiver model commands an MSRP of $2,622 and $2,760, respectively.



For shotgunners with plans to explore hunting fields, EAA will offer a field-grade variant of its Churchill line—the Churchill 812 Field. Available in .410 Bore, 28-ga., 20-ga., and 12-ga., these models will include 3” chambers and 26” barrels, with one exception: EAA reserved 28”-length barrels for its 12-ga. model. The 812 Field over-under shotguns are built on steel receivers with automatic ejectorss and provide a ventilated rib for sighting along with fiber-optics. Standard walnut and checkering is included. The 812 Field MSRP is $1,286.



In addition to the Churchill 812 series, EAA will offer a side-by-side variant—the Churchill 512. Available in 12-ga., 3” with a 28” barrels, 20- and 28-ga., 3” with a 26” barrels and a .410 bore with a 26” barrels, the 512 side-by-side shotgun provides a nickel-finished receiver, gold-colored mechanical trigger, manual safety extractor and comes threaded for choke tubes; three are provided. The barrels feature a concave rib with sighting bead and come at a MRSP of $1,355.
