These defense-style shotguns offer the same high performance function and reliability as all other Escort models, with features that have been designed for speed and function. The stock has been designed with a vertical pistol grip for better control, and an extended slide forend with upper and lower Picatinny rails to provide a solid grip and reliable function from a variety of shooting positions. The stock also has a built-in shell holder that carries two extra rounds. Pistol Grip has cushioned inserts. Sights have been designed for quick target acquisition, using an adjustable fiber optic front sight in an elevated housing, and a ghost ring rear sight that is fully adjustable.

I am the proud owner of an Escort HAT00072MP Tactical. I had always heard and read that Turkey was a producer of high quality shotguns. I can now join my own voice to the chorus of those singing the praises ofTurkish-made Shotguns. It takes just a little detective work to uncover the fact that this weapon is made a division of HOWA, They are solid, tight, light, stylish, practical, good looking, and the action is like butter. My last shotgun was a ported 18" Benellie M1 Star S/A, and I don't miss it a bit since I got this gun.By the way, yoo had better get them before the nexg price hike. They have gone up another 100.00 in the last month.

Currently being offered by Bud's for over a $100 less than I've seen it anywhere else. Pretty sweet semi-auto shotgun and accessories are available for it thru King Armory (back-order on mag extensions). Adjustable stock and ghost ring sights.5+1 the way it comes, mine has been set up 7+1. Fun to shoot and I've had zero malfuntions with it. The "O" ring positioning is not too clear as stated by another reviewer but there are enough You Tube videos on assembly to keep you straight. Plenty of info on the internet about this little gem. Highly recommended, great value.

This is a must-have tactical shotgun for those looking for a "budget" model. It's a Turkish made shotgun and all the reviews are favorable (research both the print and video reviews to confirm--particularly popular in Europe).Breakdown and assembly are 123-like easy. Gun is quite durable for the price and the mag tube can be increased if so desired. Definitely buy-rec and Buds once again had the competition beat!

Since this review is not about the lack of support from the service center, I will say that once I got this shotgun running, it is a charm. Just be sure when assembling the gun to put the O ring on after the piston and before the barrel. This was not clear in the instructions or maybe it was me. After doing this, the gun ran great! No failures to feed or eject. It never hesitated with a mixture of field and target loads or "OO" buckshot. Fantastic buy for the money. Fit and finish is wonderful. Love this shotgun now. If you're on a budget and are looking for a tactical shotgun, this is the gun to buy. 5 stars
