Lightbulb Yildez Shotgun Opinions?

Would appreciate only those who own one or have shot them please?

I believe they are made in Turkey, correct me if I'm wrong.

Just wondering the build and if your experience has been good or bad and why? If you don't have "hand's on" then please refrain from bashing just based on price and manufacturer.

Yep, had the Brownings and other brands over the years but not in the budget these days so looking for something for my deployed son who is building his collection when he finally gets home.

I have 2 that are practically like new, a 12 and a 20 gauge. I bought them second hand and have only fired the 20 a few times. I believe that they are a very good value for the money, but that’s mostly based on the opinions of others with much more experience than me.

I bought these mostly out of curiosity and I will likely sell them both, since I have a few other high end shotguns.

I have 3 of them, two 12's and a 20. I bought the 20 in 2005 and have dove hunted mostly with it. My son shot 4h clays with his. The only problem I've had is periodically a shell will swell a bit in one of the chambers on my 12. But, if they still sold the 28ga with 28" barrels I'd have one of those too.

I have the 28 gauge version of the over/under. Great little guns for the money. Very lightweight which could be a problem in the 12 gauge with recoil. No issues with the 28 gauge though.

I've had a 20 gauge youth model for several years and shoot it quite a bit (several hundred rounds a year). So far, no complaints. I'd buy another one.

My boys competed in 4-H shotgun with Yildez 20g over/under for 2 years. I have no idea how many thousand rounds are through each gun but they both still run perfect. My oldest son usually grabs is $400 Yildez to dove and quail hunt instead of his $1400 Beretta.

I have a 20 gauge that I used for years dove hunting, never had any problems and killed hundreds of dove with it. I then bought my two sons 20 gauge for Christmas, they have used them for years also. They are worth it in my opinion. I got a beretta and now use it and use the gilded for back up. Go for it

Several of us took the leap and bought the 28ga o/u. We all really like it. I kill just as many birds with my 28 as I did with a 12 and enjoy the soft kick. Not a hiccup yet in any of ours.

I have one in 28 gauge, and it has become the only gun I use for wing shooting. I use it on everything except geese. For the price you pay for one, if you're like I am, it should pay for itself pretty quickly. Fit and finish may not be the absolute greatest, but they function exceptionally well and shoot where I point. I know several other people that own yildiz shotguns, and the only complaint I've heard is that the 20 gauge has a little more recoil than most folks enjoy.

I've been shopping around for my son a shotgun as well. He's younger (11). He really liked the Yildez shotguns you mentioned. He liked the way they looked more than some of the other shotguns. I had never really heard of them before (although I'm not a big time gun guy so that's not saying a lot). It's good to see a thread on here to get honest real world experiences. Online reviews seemed to mention recoil being "heavy". That was my only concern for him being younger.

Guess I'll buy him one today or tomorrow and give it a whirl. I'll let you know how it does.

Love my 12 ga. I bought it from a fellow TBHer last year. I havenít noticed a difference in the recoil from my other shotguns, but thatís probably because he had put a Limbsaver butt pad on it which Iím sure is the reason. Great gun!

For the money they are good guns. We have some in our 4H club and we usually get about 2 years out of them...roughly 10,000 rounds before ejectors give up, firing pins break, or they just get too loose. Most folks don't shoot 10,000 rounds in their life though. When they crap out we just go buy another one. You can buy a safe load of them for what a higher end gun will run you. I will confirm that they do kick. Our 20's have more felt recoil than a 692 12 gauge.

I've got a 20 that I really like. I can miss birds with it just as well as I do with a much more expensive shotgun. Lightweight and do kick a little more, but overall a very serviceable gun. You won't be disappointed.

I have a 12 and 20 gauge that my son and I shoot, no issues with either of them, very good value in my opinion. The recoil was strong but I bought Limbsaver recoil pads for them and that seemed to tame the recoil substantially. If you buy one from Academy ask to see more than one since the wood grain can vary quite a bit between guns.

The limbsaver pad makes them much more enjoyable to shoot. There was a pic floating around here a couple of years ago of one that blew up, but that is really the only negative thing I have seen on them. Go buy one.

We have three. One 12 and two 20's. The twelve did pack a wallop. I just added some coins to the inside of the stock and tamed it down. Biggest problem is with the ejectors not working. I believe they may be coated with a lacquer that gets sticky once it gets hot. Cleaned it really good with break cleaner and a brush and haven't had any more problems.

I bought an O/U 12 ga. Yildiz a few years ago as a back-up/loaner shotgun. They are made in Turkey, sold exclusively by Academy, and warranty work is done by Briley in Houston, TX. The Turks make an excellent shotgun. Mine has beautiful wood, and is well fitted. However, I don't think the Turks know or care about recoil pads. I added a Limbsaver recoil pad and a magnetic fiber optic bead sight and this is now my go to shotgun. I had problems in the first year of its life with the selector switch not functioning correctly, and Academy sent it straight off to Briley for warranty repair. No problems once Briley fixed the selectors. BTW, I called Briley and spoke with their warranty repair department to ask if they get a lot of Yildiz shotguns back for warranty work, and he said the number one repair they do is replacement of broken firing pins. He suggested using snap caps if you wanted to dry fire the piece. I'd love to get a Yildiz semi-auto shotgun, but I really only shoot doves and occasional clays anymore, so I really can't justify the cost of a new shotgun.

Good luck,

Dave

I had a SPZ-ME 12 gauge a few years ago and had a bad experience. Every kind of shell you put through it would get stuck in the chamber about every other shot. I tried Cheapo Winchesters, Cheapo Remington, Remington Sure-Shot, Rio, some High-Dollar Federal, Remington Nitro-Gold, and Winchester AA's. I cleaned it really good multiple times and that did not help. So I sent it off to Briley's and included several of the hulls that had gotten stuck. I sent a couple AA's, a couple Nitro-Golds, a Sure-Shot, and a Cheapo Winchester. When I got the gun back a couple months later, they explained in a note that there was no problem, and that the gun was not designed to shoot budget ammunition. I understand that the $4.99/box Winchesters and Rios aren't the best quality shells, but the $8-10 AA's and Nitro Golds sure as heck aren't "budget"! They went on to say that they also cleaned the gun thoroughly. I took the gun outside and shot 5 Nitro-Golds and 5 AA's.... Only one ejected. I ended up taking the gun to academy and explaining the situation. They ended up refunding my money and getting that piece of junk out of my hands.

My shotgun was probably just a lemon, as I have heard many good things about them, but my experience was enough to steer me clear of the Yildiz Brand.

I have been seeing a lot about Turkey and their firearm manufacturing in gun magazines the last few years. They have a few new factories working with state of the art tooling under license from many manufacturers.. They are making MP5 copies under the Zenith brand that are almost as good as the HK models. Also many copies of 1911's and the CZ75's.
Don't think you can go wrong with these guns. They are economy priced, but not cheap.

Cheap blows up in your face. Cheap in my experience has been Chinese firearms. The gun has to pass the proofing in order to get out of the factory....we hope. The labor cost to build these guns is the difference. If Turks were making the same gun in Italy you would gladly pay a grand for it. If Italians were making them in Turkey, you would only pay $429
I have shot these guns at the trap course and they performed fine. You can pay more, but 55 mph is 55mph no matter what vehicle your rolling in.

looking at the academy site, there is an SPZ ME for $429, ME steel for 499, and ME special for 679. Reading the description, only the steel has a steel receiver? Is that correct? Other differences?

Great guns for the price. If you are going to shoot 500-600 rounds a year they will last a long time. If you plan on shooting a couple hundred rounds ever week shooting clays it won’t last like other higher end guns will. Well worth the money

I have had a good experience with mine as well- a 12 o/u. It does kick a bit but nothing unbearable. I don’t use it much because I have other more sentimental guns that get the use and I went to an auto loader for duck hunting. I would sell it if anyone is interested, it’s just sat in the safe for 2 years now I guess.

Going off just visiting Academy web site they listed NO 20 gauge semi-auto in the Yildiz? At least in the North Texas area they seem to feature the Tristar brand now? It's also a Turkish manufacturer....wondering if they made a change??

Have a friend who shoots one, and no problems. He can't hit the side of a barn, but it's not the gun's fault..
