    Talking First semi auto shotgun

    Well today was the day i bought my first semi auto shotgun.

    when on basspros website i ran into this semi auto shotgun that had a low price point.

    A gun made in Turkey for a very reasonable price for a semi.

    i was looking around for a small game/ Bird gun, that wouldnt break the bank.

    The Girsan MC312

    i looked up reviews for 3 days and have not run into anyone who had anything bad to say about the firearm at all. picked it up today went home and WOW!

    am i ever pleased with this.

    granted theres like a whole bottle of oil in the thing right now but the action is super smooth feels great shouldered now just to shoot it LOL.

    came in mossy oak camo, and with 5 chokes!! paid 620$ tax in with 2 boxes of turkey loads.

    Nice!
    Turkey produces great shotguns.
    I had a Armsan, it was a great gun, never had any problems.

    Congratulations, love the autos


    Youíll get different opinions on this but mine would be to strip it down, get all the oil off of its parts then reassemble dry and donít use any lubricants on the guns action or inner workings. Just become familiar with how to strip it down, keep it very clean and dry.

    Autoloaders and lubricants donít mix IMO

    Ya generally but I'd defer to the manual enclosed. It should give you good instructions on maintenance. I believe a dirty/ poorly maintained autoloader is the source of most problems.

    Totally depends on the autoloader.

    A gas gun needs lubrication, and an inertia gun needs less but generally still some on the rails. The Girsan is an inertia shotgun.

    Interesting comments!
    My dad has a 1187 remington. Strips it down and cleans it maybe once a season hes had the gun since he was about 16 or 17 (52 now) hasnt had any issues.

    Gunna go up this morning and see what happens worst comes to worst I strip it down in the field and clean her up a bit no big deal.
