[SHOT 2018] New Bullpup Semiauto Shotguns from Adler

    Anyone up for a round of Goldeneye?

    There’s certainly no shortage of Turkish shotguns at SHOT

    Adler Hunting Arms company, the Turkish shotgun manufacturer mostly known for their lever actions (and many rustled jimmies down under) have introduced a bullpup version of their 12ga. J210 “vertical magazine shotgun”, and an entire new line of .410 shotguns as well.  

    The new 12ga. semi-auto bullpup shotguns feature a left side charging handle, Picatinny rails at the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock positions, right-hand magazine release and a left-hand bolt release.  They have full magazine compatibility with the 2, 5, and 10 round magazines of the standard layout J210.  And yes, one can get said shotgun in that garish gold color if one really wants to do so.  I will say that the shotguns actually had a pretty nice balance to them.  I’d be interested to get some range time in the future to really assess this gun.

    The new .410’s include their flagship lever action, the A110.  Also seen were the new J-610 magazine fed .410, semi-auto tube magazine HT-101 .410, and their new double barrel break open .410(they previously only made single barrel break-opens). The J-610 will come with a 3-round flush-fit magazine, as well as 5, 10, and 15 round magazines for now.  All of their .410s swung well, and the opening and lockup were very good on the break-open model.

    If one lives in a more restrictive area of the world in regards to “magazine fed repeating arms”, Adler also has bolt action versions of their model 210 called the “B-210”.  These are mostly set up as slug guns, with 20″, 24″, and 28″ barrels available.

    Sadly, I didn’t find the 13″ version of their J210 at the booth.  I’d be very interested to see if this shotgun can qualify as a “firearm” in the same category as the Mossberg Shockwave or Remington Tac-14.

    Their “wood short-butt setup hunting model 110” looks fun.

    I do wish Adler the best of success in continuing to expand into the US shotgun market.  Some of their models are really quite nice and fill as yet unfilled niches.

    And finally…

    To wrap things up, I’ll warn you: DO NOT TAKE A SIP OF YOUR BEVERAGE OR A BITE OF FOOD BEFORE VIEWING THE BELOW CONFIGURATIONS

    Yo dawg, I heard you like rails on your rails…
