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.

This was my first shotgun purchase, and I did not go wrong. This thing was a beauty out of the box/hardcase and it weighs less than most AR\'s . It was already lubed up so to the range I went. I broke it in and my shoulder with some Winchester 3\'\' 00 buckshot, then some 2 3/4 #4 buckshot and they ran flawless, i will say it doesn\'t kick as much as a pump action but it does punch. It has a rubber pad on the end but I will be investing in some kind of recoil pad like a Limb Saver or Hogue. Dealing with Bud\'s was a breeze as usual.

I happened to jump on the website to look at my order I had placed the day before and this was on the homepage on sale. I really liked the look, feel and options it came with for the price. Went ahead and ordered it as well. Operates great, no issues so far. Plenty of aftermarket upgrades out there for it. This was my 3 purchase from Buds and as usual all was great. Easy to buy, fast shipping and all was in great condition. Just purchased my 4th firearm from Buds today can’t wait till that comes in to add it to the collection.

For the price I guess you can\'t go wrong. This is my first shotgun. I cleaned and lubed it before I shot it. The first time I went and shot target and bird loads (Winchester 2 3/4, 1325 & 1350 velocity , 1 oz, 7 and 7 1/2 shot). It would not cycle properly. Just about every round would not feed or eject properly. I went through about 40 rounds. Cleaned and lubed again. Second time I went out I shot Winchester High Brass 2 3/4, 1330 velocity, 1 1/4 oz, 7 1/2 shot,) and it worked like a champ. Went through 40 rounds and only 1 FTE. I don\'t know if it needed to be broken in or if the slight difference in ammo might have helped. I have buckshot on order and I\'m sure it will do better with the heavier loads. Buds is great. Best prices. Be patient with them during this COVID19 crisis. Good luck!

The Girsan MC312 HDT Tactical shotgun from Buds is a great deal for $249.00. This is not a gun for the first time shotgun purchaser since there are some caveats, which Buds does explain in a video on You Tube; pointing out the difference between the HDT and LDT MC312 models. I have read some of the reviews prior to purchasing this gun and noticed that there were issues posted regarding failure to extract or eject with the HDT gun. That model is designed to shoot high velocity ammo in both 2.75" and 3" shells. It is recommended using ammo over 1300 fps (get a Limbsaver #10823 recoil pad); you're gonna need it. Lower velocity ammo will not extract and eject the shells consistently due to the heavy recoil buffer spring. The fix would be to replace the existing spring with a reduced power spring from Taran Tactical Innovations. Since this gun is basically a copy of the Benelli M2 design, many Benelli M2 components will work in the MC312 with exception of magazine extensions...the factory mag tube need to me trimmed down and it requires a Benelli Nova extension nut. The bottom line is if you have the skill and patience to do some work on the MC312, it becomes an awesome piece. Winchester AA low velocity loads at 1145 fps....no problem. Us old guys need not wear out our shoulders, any more then they already are, shooting that heavy stuff.

Girsan MC312 Tactical is a beautiful shotgun. Fit and finish are best-in-class from stock to foreend. Sights are easy to pickup even in low light. Action is smooth and trigger is crisp with no creep or stacking. Recoil is light compare to my Rem 870. Buy it while you can.

Great gun for the price. Bought this one mostly for home defense. I shot it a few times at the range and it shot well and cycled the shells really good. Would definitely recommend this one. Great service through Buds and will definitely shop again.

This is the second MC312 HDT I purchased from Buds. This one did not come with the shell holder as pictured, was kinda PO\'d about that. However, with heavy loads, this one seems to run more reliably than the first. After a box of high brass, it seems to be broken in and running flawlessly. May swap the shell holder over and keep the 1st as a backup. Shell holder or not these are a fantastic value for $249.00. I haven\'t extended the mag tube yet, but a Nordic Components super benelli nut fits and this should not be real involved modification.

    Eric, yes Sir. This shotgun is a clone of the Benelli M2 and will accept Benelli Style/Compatible Stocks, extension tubes and chokes. Cheers!

    Lance, No. Cost cutting by not having that feature.

    Jolly, yes Sir to both. It is setup very similar to a Benelli and is labelled as the poor man's Benelli.

    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.
