TFBTV: The Turkish SAP-6 Mag-Fed Short-Barrel Pump Shotgun

In this episode of TFBTV, Edward O takes a look at the Turkish SAP-6 pump-action shotgun. This short barrel gun feeds from 6 or 11 round detachable magazines, and is available in 12 inch, 14 inch, and 18 inch barrel lengths. In Canada, these shotguns have a dedicated following as camp guns, truck guns, and tactical shotguns.

    What a neat little gun. Seems kind of pricey for what it is, though.

    I enjoy hearing about the interesting stuff that Canada has access to.

    • KestrelBike

      Proof (as if we needed it) that both country’s restrictive laws are worthless garbage.

    • The_Champ

      Keep in mind, $700 dollars Canadian is currently about $500 American.
      But generally yes our firearms cost more here. I’m sure it has to do with import regulations, fees, and economy of scale with Canada having a much smaller market.
      There are a few nifty exceptions. SKS’s are dirt cheap and plentiful here still. And I’m told many American’s would kill to get their hands on our SVT-40s which don’t cost much more than an SKS.

    I would buy an 18″ version if it was available in the USA.

  • kbroughton77

    Can’t believe I’m saying this, but I’m jealous of some of the toys EH-land gets

    • Bill

      I believe I’m saying it.

    • Swarf

      Yeah, but their bacon is round, so it’s a wash.

  • JumpIf NotZero

    Did they fix the issues with rimmed soft shell 12ga rounds in a box magazine?

    • gunsandrockets

      Manual vs semi-auto very different. Semi-auto magazine needs stiffer spring for reliable function. A pump action should be able to get away with a much weaker spring.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        That’s fair enough. Still doesn’t extend to the reality that 12ga rounds work best from tubes, but you have a point – IF – they have a suitable spring in there.

  • Rick Grimes

    Thanks for this, Edward. I just discovered this gun a few nights ago and it is really interesting. If it broke down in length easily I’d buy it in a heartbeat.

  • Omerli

    Nicely done. Many thanks.

  • Southpaw89

    Not bad but he seems to thinks that we convert Saiga shotguns into rifles down here, instead of converting import compliant rifles into more traditional AK platforms. Not coming down on him for it, but it would be good to clear that up.

    • Paladin

      He’s talking about the Saiga being a shotgun conversion of a rifle I believe

  • Porty1119

    That’s the best set of tags on a TFB article yet.

    • USMC03Vet

      Needs more Tim Hortons.

    • Giolli Joker

      I see Patrick challenging Nathaniel…

  • Duray

    Every pump shotgun I’ve ever handled has been “mag fed.” Because words mean things.

  • Jake

    Turkish tactical shotguns are like taco bell, They look good in the pictures, but when you get down to it they are just putting beef, cheese and tortillas in different combinations.

  • Joe Gamer

    Wait?…
    You can’t even carry a revolver through the woods in Canada? That’s one of the places where you need it the most!

  • Ben Loong

    Huh. I’ve seen pretty much the same gun marketed over here as the Tomahawk XP-12.

    Jethro Int’l started carrying them about a year or so ago. Compact and nice to look at but not quite what I was looking for.
