NRA Gun of the Week: EAA MC312 Shotgun

by
posted on November 23, 2019
Built in Turkey by Girsan and imported to U.S. shores by European American Armory, the Girsan MC312 is an inertia-driven 12-ga. shotgun designed to allow full use of 12-gauge options, from 2 3/4” to 3 1/2" shells. At the heart of EAA’s MC312 is an aluminum receiver housing a rotating-bolt design that locks into the 28” barrel’s receiver extension. Topping the barrel is Girsan’s ventilated sight rib with a red fiber-optic pipe up front. Adorned with black synthetic furniture and threaded for choke tubes, the MC312 is a no-frills workhorse capable of meeting the many needs of today’s shotgunners. To learn more about the EAA MC312 12-ga. shotgun, watch our NRA Gun of the Week video hosted by American Rifleman’s Christopher Olsen.
