O/U Yildiz SPZ ME 20

Not my first Turkish shotgun, but my first "Yidiz" is an Over and Under 20 ga SPZ ME 20 with aluminum receiver.

I'd read a review of it on another internet forum from a coach whose students use this model in competition with good reliable results.

It weighs in right at 6 lbs. and is a joy to use on upland game and late season dove shoots.

Yildiz like most all the Turkish gun companies is ISO9001 rated.

Which means you're getting state of the art CNC machine work and hand fitting at bargain basement prices.

The Turkish walnut on these guns is awesome to for the price point.

Need to look at Academy; pretty sure they are the only ones who carry it.
The "E" in the model stands for elegant; they have a nicer grade of wood.
Standard model is $399, elegant $499.

Had one as my only shotgun for about 3 years during my "upland only" phase.
Decided I wanted more shots availabe and went to an auto. But I enjoyed mine.

Elegant the wood is, but I believe the "E" stands for "Ejectors" as a model with automatic ejection upon opening.

My standard model ejected also.
Maybe E stands for "Extra $100.00"

Edit: You may be right. May be the extra $100 gets you a "special".

It is a good little gun for the money. Got a few kids in 4H that hammer them hard. They hold up under them with 50 to 100 rounds a week.

I nearly bought the upgraded version with the fancier scrolling and wood in the 12 gauge. Beautiful looking gun and the price could not be beat. I had the time to continue research and some trusted shooting friends advised looking at the Stoeger Condor. Looked and handled the Stoeger and decided on the Condor Competition with interchangeable 12-20 gauge barrels. No doubt the Yildiz is the better looking weapon, but when it comes right down to it. The fancy scrolling and wood do not buy accuracy or flexibility. In the end it came down to preferring to pay for extra features such as interchangeable ported barrels and adjustable stock combs over fancy scroll work.
The Yildiz is a very nice gun for the price, I think you made a good choice.
Lo.
