Researching shotguns last night and came across the Derya Carina. Anyone ever heard of them?

Haven't seen this one yet, but there are some decent shotguns coming out of Turkey these days.

It's cheap enough to try.

I've tried a few turkish shotguns now - and dlask is NOBODY"S fool when it comes to decent quality and i'd tend to trust what they sell and they should be able to support it, they're excellent gunsmiths. Honestly, I wouldn't have a lot of fear buying it from them. Of course, there's no way to know the specific details of performance like the ergo's and the cycle rate - and i take it from the fact you need to buy an extra piston for the 3 inch shells it's an old friction system perhaps like the old auto-5, so if you want to go from 2 3/4 to 3 you have to change out the piston, but you know ... my auto 5 is still kicking out shells and it was made in the 50's and saw hard use in the duck sloughs of manitoba for years. ANd how often do people switch from one size shell to the other? Most of my shooting is 2 3/4 and if i were going after turkey or something you'd swap out at home and be done with it. Easy enough change over, only takes a minute or two. I wish these guys would put up more info about these slightly more obscure shotguns.
