    New 12-Gauge AR-style Shotgun

    A while back there were .410 semi-auto AR shotguns floating around. I thought they were neat, but at the time I wished they came in 12 gauge instead. It looks like my wish came true! However, only 5-round magazines are available because they are imported from Turkey. A little pricey at $700, but neat. MKA 1919 Semi-Auto 12-gauge shotgun:

    Neat, the 12ga is too big to use a standard AR lower.. but I wonder if the 410's did and just put a new upper on? Any info on that?

    Compared to a Saiga... $699 doesn't seem too outrageous, but for that kind of money, I think I'd rather have a Saiga 12 since there are already 10-20 round mags out there for it.

    BTW, the lower looks like a poly/nylon type CAV-ARMS uni-lower... do you know if its plastic or aluminum? Any info on reliability?

    How long before it is classified as a DD?

    The 410 had a ton of really cheap plastic if i remember correctly. Everything i read said they were basically really cheaply made and not much better than a functioning toy novelty, but i think they were just an upper for a standard lower.
