At Budsgunshop.com, we are proud to offer quality products to our customers. Very few products are as exciting as the Girsan MC312 line! 

The HDT (Heavy Duty Tactical) is designed with the Tactical Professional in mind. The pistol grip configuration allows the tactical operator to use heavy magnum tactical loads with less felt recoil, resulting in faster follow-up shots on target. Due to the operational design of Inertia shotguns, proper shouldering is required for problem-free cycling with any variant of shells - from light to heavy loads, 2 3/4" to 3" in any load configuration.

Featuring the Inertia-X Drive, these Girsan MC312 shotguns are fast becoming one of the most talked-about shotguns on the market. This action is reliable, requiring no adjusting - ever.  It remains cleaner than other gas operating systems, allowing the gas, smoke, and burnt powder to remain in the barrel, which means less maintenance required. With only three main parts, it's one of the simplest, yet one of the strongest, lightest-weight, and most perfectly-balanced systems out there.

Each of these shotguns undergoes individual quality control tests from Girsan before shipment to ensure proper functionality.

I was amazed at how smooth the action is. So far no jams or other problems and I highly recommend this shotgun. I bought the tactical and the use of the handle greatly reduces recoil. Buds was quick to ship to my FFL.

For under $300 bucks this is a must buy! Took it home cleaned it up and headed to the range. Flawless with high brass birdshot, buck and slug. \r\nThis semi only functions with hot loads. Ghost ring sights, side saddle and rail you can\\\'t beat it. Nice Benelli\r\nM2 clone. Highly recommend. Thanks again Buds!

I have been pleasantly surprised by this gun. For $249, you can not beat it. Even for full retail of nearly $700 this gun is a great deal. I have run several kinds of ammo through this gun and it has functioned flawlessly. Very well made and the action is smooth as glass.

I had a chance to take my Girsan hdt out this weekend. I shot about 100 shells through it no problem accept 1 light strike which wasn%u2019t a deal breaker for me. I wouldn%u2019t recommend 3%u201D shells out of it because of the stout recoil. I had a little bit of rust on the barrel taking it out of the box but nothing that a little clp wouldn%u2019t take care of. Overall for the price i think it%u2019s a good shotgun if your in the market for a budget friendly semi auto.

I already had the Zenith Girsan version of this gun, and figured that for the price I couldn\\\\\\\'t afford to not buy a back up. The only difference I can tell is that the Zenith gun comes with a Chrome plated bolt, this one is blued. I tried to run some 3.5 dram birdshot loads through this gun with no luck (they have cycled through the Zenith gun since day one) almost every round was a fail to eject. A box of 3 dram was similar results. Several fail to fire rounds also occurred. Seems like the bolt is cycling slugishly. Three 3 inch slugs cycled fine with the cases being thrown about 10 feet away.\\r\\nI have read the comments from other shooters, I am going to clean and lube with some of that space age lube and try a box of high brass stuff. If possible, this one even seems to kick more than the Zenith gun. I\\\\\\\'m glad I paid the few extra bucks to get the Bud\\\\\\\'s lifetime guarantee. I\\\\\\\'m going to rate this at 4 stars because the Zenith gun has been flawless, I think this one will be too after it is completely broken in.

It\\\\\\\'s a great gun for the money. I will say my only negative is that the recoil has a lot of bark. I shoot an M1A all day long and that feels like a AR compared to this. I\\\\\\\'m not a small guy and the kick really made me wince. I am going to look for a supplemental butt pad.

I’ve owned Benelli M4’s and M1’s and this shotgun is definitely well worth the price. I wish there were more accessories, in fact I can’t really find any at all but nonetheless it is an amazing shotgun! Again, we’ll worth every penny if your on a budget!! Also, Buds was great, like always!!

By all accounts, this is basically a Benelli M2 clone, using the reliable Inertia action to cycle rounds. There\\\'s a youtube vid showing what looks like a 25,000 (x2= 50,000 between 2 guns) round reliability test without a failure (the last portion of it). Good value.

    C J, the Girsan Tactical is a 5 + 1 shotgun. The non Tactical is a 4 +1 and the standard 312 is a 3 +1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LZKfqg2V04

    Jonathan, if it is a 12Ga Side Saddle, it should fit. Try a 20ga shell or different brand 12ga shell just to see if it fits. European American Armory/Girsan Customer Service may be able to advise or resolve this for you at (321) 639-4842 8:30am – 3:30pm EST

    Jim, the standard Girsan Recoil Spring will work for sure. Benelli May or may not work depending on how close it may be to the Girsan specifications.

    Benelli Supernova extensions should work with some minor modification. Don't know of any extensions made specifically for this gun though.

    It would not be velocity so much as payload It should be fine with any standard 1 1/8 oz 12 ga load the 1 Oz loads may not generate high enough pressures to cycle the action velocity in shotshell is expressed as drams equivalent or DE I would start with a 1 1/8 OZ 3 DE load and see if it functioned If that works drop down to a 1 1/8 2.75 DE and check it https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/656_2081_10000533/products_id/712002395/Winchester%20SUPER%20TARGET%2012GA%20HV%20#7.5 3DR 1 1/8OZ 25/10/
