Out of stock
The Akdal MKA 1919 is a gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun
created by Turkish company Akdal Arms. It is intended for use by
civilian and security markets.
The MKA 1919 highly resembles the M16 Rifle and mimics the layout and placement of some of the controls. The Akdal MKA 1919 is unlike many other 12 gauge shotguns as it is very light and ergonomic, this is due to the use of modern and high strength composites.

Honestly this is a fantastic shotgun. For disassembly...requires a bit of tools but it is rather easy once you get through it one time. I found that after I had cleaned it, there are a couple main parts that need to be cranked down upon. That includes the handguard secure cap and the Gas regulator nut/spring. If you don't secure the Gas regulator nut/spring firmly, it becomes loose shortly after shooting and it can cause a hang fire. What happens is, the barrel becomes a hair loose and has just far enough distance to strike the primer but doesn't fire. That's it, that's my only issue...very accurate very reliable otherwise...eats anything I put through it. I put about 150 rounds through it without pause and it handled it like a champ. It does not have a way to stop the magazine from seating to far into the rifle so you can't slam the magazine into the rifle, otherwise the bolt won't close. No miss feeds, no slam fires...

Bought this after looking at a lot of reviews, I was going for the Saiga shotgun first but a friend of mine has one and he says it jammed a lot, he had to get a gunsmith to change out some internal pieces and now it works ,but like I read on some reviews some mags won't work in the saigas this happened to him and he could not get a refund.
Before I shot it I put on a tomax muzzle brake and put a booster ring for light/bird shot. I love it can't wait for 10round mags, no jams and it cycled every time
(I have been told that I don't need the booster ring , that i just have to to break it in with boxes and boxes of bird shot first then it will always cycle, they said the same thing about my Benneli super 90 and after 1000 rounds or so a few times a round won't cycle)
Mine does not have the jewel blinged safety marks, so maybe mine is a little newer. I'll never go back to tube shotguns again, unless it's an emergency lol.

I just purchased this shotgun last week and fully dissasembled and detail cleaned it before taking to the field. You must remove the cosmoline as it is on every piece of the internal firing mechanism and gas tube assembly (this would cause malfunctions). You can find a helpful disassembly video by RAAC on youtube which I highly recommend. I called tech support as the charging handle was an extremely tight fit (this firearm has extremely tight machining and is really good quality) and I couldn't get it apart for detail cleaning, but was able to use kroil penetrating oil to help get it free. My first time at the range I took regular steel shot 2-3/4" target/ game loads, 25 rounds, 5 rounds 2-3/4" slugs and 5 rounds 3" buckshot. I'm proud to say there were NO malfunctions and the preformance was flawlwss. One of the Winchester 3" buckshot rounds had a bad primer, but fired when I reinserted it a second time (big crater in primer from first hammer fall). The 2-3/4" shells eject about 12 to 15 feet to the side and the 3" shells about 20 feet (I couldn't find them at first as I didn't realize they ejected that far). Handling is quik and accurate. My only complaint would be the cheap sights used, but I will be using a red dot sight on the picatinny rail anyway. With aftermarket parts on the way by Firebird Precision, Tromix and Centerfire Systems, I think this is going to be a very versatile platform that has the 3 gun crowd excited.
