Legacy Sports Introduces New Low-Cost Break-Action Shotgun

Pointer-Break-Action-Shotguns

Legacy Sports (which includes brands like Citadel, Kryptek, and Howa) has introduced the Pointer break-action shotgun. The Pointer break-action is a no-nonsense kind of firearm, using the simplest operation for a cartridge-base firearm possible: hammer-fired, single-action, break-action.

These are aimed decidedly at the cost-conscious market with MSRPs at $188. While low-cost it seems that Pointer is going for safety with no less than three (3) safeties including push-button, hammer-safety, and a transfer bar safety.

    I prefer my firearms deep fried as opposed to hammer fried.

    4.8 lbs is a very lightweight 12 gauge.

    • sam

      Indeed, if they’re really that light that’s interesting. One one hand it might not have the, erm, graceful handling characteristics shotgun enthusiasts speak of. On the other, it stands to reason a single can be made to work with less weight than a pump or double, so might as well do it.

    • Tassiebush

      It’d certainly be handy to carry around hilly terrain compared to most options.

  • iksnilol

    Cut the barrel to minimum length and shorten the stock a bit and you have a really handy gun. Though it will kick a bit.

    • Jonathan Wright

      sounds like the single shot rossi in my closet.

      • iksnilol

        For hunting IMO weight is the most important since you walk so much and you don’t fire many shots.

        I know a buddy of mine uses a singleshot shotgun for grouse and similar animals. He always gets more than his other friends. He first started with it after he had to borrow his brothers singleshot, it worked better than his pump so he started using it.

  • pc299

    This looks like a H&R Pardner with synthetic furniture and a push button safety.

    Three safeties, for one shot?

    I will always maintain that the single shot break action type firearms are an excellent choice for beginning hunters. The fact that you only have one shot teaches the importance of marksmanship over spray and pray, keeps the gun simple so it is easy to use and maintain, and is at least a little safer due to the fact that if you have an accidental discharge, there is only one round to fire instead of several, this would mainly be an issue with autoloaders. And if for some reason you find that you don’t enjoy hunting then you haven’t spent too much money on a gun that you may never use again. And of course if you choose to continue hunting you can always upgrade. I think these shotguns would fill that role perfectly.

  • Grindstone50k

    It’s under $200? Must be a pile of crap that only shoots your grand mother when you look at it funny.

    • Tassiebush

      Haha poor grandma!
      I think they’re made in Turkey. Turkish guns are forming a good reputation here. Even Webley and Scott have a factory there. The Turks seem to have all the CNC machines etc in the shotgun industry over there.

      • Grindstone50k

        I think you’re right about Turkish guns. My dad has a SAR K2P 9mm pistol and he is very satisfied with it. I didn’t have a single issue shooting a couple hundred rounds through it a few months ago when visiting.

        I’ve heard stories from the old hands about how when my unit used to deploy to Turkey, they would smuggle Turkish hunting shotguns when returning home.

        • Tassiebush

          That’s interesting about the smuggling! It really looks like Turkish guns were in the “best kept secret” category for quite a while. I get the impression that they match the workmanship but at a much lower labour cost.

  • Tassiebush

    Wow! Every now and then I get very envious of the available firearms and prices you get over there. That link is a good example of this. How could anyone not start with that if they were setting up.

    • Cattoo

      What are your prices wherever it is you are?

      • Tassiebush

        A single barrel like that’d be $270 or more new but more importantly we just don’t have pumps or semis so cheap doubles are more the thing. A low end one would be around $700. A cheap pump like the Stevens Swarf linked to would just be great. Our $ has dropped a fair bit from the US$ recently and prices are really rising as a result. I’m in Tasmania Australia btw.

        • Swarf

          Additionally, Stevens is made by Savage, so I would trust it to not be junk, even though I’ve never handled one.

          Sorry to hear of your regulatory firearms woes, Tassiebush. At least you have interesting scenery and devilish (har har) wildlife.

          • Tassiebush

            Yeah it’s certainly a reputable maker.
            Yeah we’re pretty lucky with our local environment and we are very fortunate to have wallabies for hunting.

  • MountainKelly

    Just like a handi. Neat

  • Joshua

    yeah… I can get a single barrel break for $50 at a gun show, hell sometimes they give them away. this thing is going to have to get a lot lower cost if it wants to sell I’d expect.

    • Grindstone50k

      I wish I had your gun shows. The only thing that’s $50 at mine is a “Scentsy” thing.

  • Car54

    H&R/NEF isn’t making single shot guns anymore so this may fill the market since there are new generations of shooters who might be unfamiliar with singles. On the other hand there are still million of the old long barrel single shots out there and I regularly find them for less than $100, sometimes a lot less. The H&Rs are good because you can swap barrels on them pretty easily.

  • 1leggeddog

    My dad has two of these and i love them with their like 14 inch barrels. They make for GREAT bush guns for hunting small game in thick forests and are really lightweight.
