Recommended Posts

I have the Ata arms 12g over under and love it for a cheap gun it performs very well.

 

Has anyone else got one and fancy telling me what them think.

Beretta copies aren’t they ?  Use designs that are out of patent protection

Look alright to be honest but pictures are very often not representative of the actual product... to be fair though Turkish shotguns have been given favourable reviews in some shotgun magazines I have seen.

When have you ever seen an unfavourable review in a magazine?

You could almost just change the name in most and the article would read the same!

Have a look at Lloyds Pattinsons review on youtube and his thread in the guns section on here, it'll give you a decent insight into an honest review of one.  From what I call recall he gave it a very good review.

I paid £600 for my sp black really nice gun started loosening up a bit now. Although only bad point I can pick up which really isn't that bad is the action release lever is a slight stiff.

Has anyone with an ata learnt how to adjust the trigger. Apparently they are adjustable

Many guns have an adjustable trigger generally just for length of pull usually just an Allen key through the trigger base.

There is a small button just on top of the trigger. Push that and you can move it back and forth.. In increments. I think it's five.. Haven't fiddled with mine. I tried it, it worked. I set it back to out of box and forgot about it. No nedtone overwhelm my brain :D

My friend brought one.  It feel apart and jammed shut with 1 live cart in after 1 day at DTL.

Gun shop gave him his money back straight away. Parts looked stamped out not properly  

machined or finished.

I bought one as a first gun (only started last August). It’s 30” with Matt action and barrels. Nice dark wood. 

All was well until the bottom barrel sometimes wouldn’t fire. Then it would never fire. Sometimes had to squeeze the trigger three times to get a shot off. Not conducive to building confidence!

It went back to Sportsman Guns and they replaced the trigger unit, apparently it’s a known issue with a certain batch. 

When it came back they’d scratched the stock! Fair play to them though they then replaced all the wood. 

All good now and certainly shooting better than I can!
