SHOT Show 2019: Girsan MC312 Shotgun

EAA Corp. has been importing European guns for a lot of years, most famously the Tanfoglio pistols from Italy, as well as some German guns. The imports gaining new attention these days are from Turkish gunmaker Girsan, with the semi-automatic MC312 shotgun among the most talked about.

This 12-gauge MC312 is extremely adaptable, with the ability to run 2 3/4", 3" and 3.5" loads—even mixed in the same mag tube. EAA has put this shotgun through a series of endurance tests, including a 700-round continuous firing with no time to cool. They also ran the first 5000 rounds with zero cleaning, then ran a 10,000 round endurance test without replacing any parts. For a final test, they disassembled five shotguns, placed the parts in a box, mixed the parts up and reassembled the guns with a random selection. The MC312 fired with no adjustments needed. And if that weren't enough incentive, the Girsan MC312 sells for less than $500. 

American Rifleman's Mark Keefe stopped by the EAA station at the 2019 SHOT Show Industry Day at the Range to check out this new powerhouse semi-automatic shotgun for himself, and you can watch the video here. For more, visit
