"This was my first purchase with CheaperThanDirt.com and it all went perfectly. I called their customer service a couple times to get familiar with the process and it all went as planned. I ordered the MKA 1919 on Sunday night and picked my gun up from the FFL Dealer on Friday of the same week! The gun was a bit dirty internally from the test fire they did but it was all good. I took the MKA 1919 out shooting the same day I got it and it shot perfectly. I had a few feeding malfunctions, but it was during the 4 box break in period, so it's all good. The gun is awesome! My first Semi-Auto Shotgun and I wanted something new, different, and reliable, and the Akdal MKA 1919 is that gun! Everyone I've shown it to loves it and every time I take it out on the range, it get more and more reliable and consistent as it breaks in. LOVE THIS GUN!!"

"For the buyer that is looking for a reasonably priced magazine fed semi-auto 12 gauge shotgun, the choices are slim. I was looking at the Saiga 12 against the MKA1919. The Saiga 12 bought in the \"Sporting\" configuration will need much time, money and work to get it to run reliably. I did a lot of research and I opted for the MKA1919. So far, I have only run a few mags through it, but it has run flawlessly. Many aftermarket parts are becoming available for the MKA1919 and the 10 round mags are in the works (Firebird Precision). The MKA1919 comes with three interchangeable choke tubes (Saiga does not), piccatinny rail, recoil pad, 2 five round mags and removable carry handle. The fit and finish is great and I look forward to more testing. Ordering from CTD was fast and easy. Shipping was extremely reasonable and I would not hesitate to order from them again."

"This is one fine shotgun. I convert these over to A4 style guns 922(r) compliant and have had no trouble with them. You need to run 3-4 boxes of 3\" shells through them to break them in, or convert to a low pressure spring to run 2-3/4\" light loads. By the time you convert a Saiga 12 to run and look like this gun, you will have $1200+ in it."

"It's like telling a glock head to buy a sig. People who like saigas from my experience seem to stick by them. Alright, just got mine today 1 feeding problem. To be expected. Out of a 100 rounds isn't bad to start. I was a true saiga fan however my mind may change...quickly. Out of the box this is ready to go. My complaints? Front sights are not fixed...they are mounted with a couple allen wrenches. I'm not excited about that because they have the ability to move around to easily...however, yet hasn't happened. Quick recovery time, accurate, so far reliable, very fun to shoot...one opinion I've heard was this gun is all about the looks however from my experience...it's also about functionality. Great gun"

"Just ordered some 10 rd mags for the MKA1919 through CTD. Can't wait to try them out. They will be a big plus for this gun. Our converted M4 style guns are selling well. 6 rds in less than one second. The Saigas don't even come close."

"The front site and the carry handle are made of cheap plastic. I would not trust them, so I replaced them with a scope. This gun is not as nice as I was hoping that it would be."

"A friend (E.S.) and I shot over one hundred 3\" mags out of this gun with one jam in the mag, not the gun, the first time it was shot. I cleaned it and three other guys and myself shot two boxes of target loads with no problems at all. These are so much fun to shoot at trap or sporting clays. We are shooting the gun just like you see it, with the handle and front site in place. I ordered this gun on 11/2 Friday and it was in my hands on 11/6 Tuesday. CTD's service is fast and they are very nice to deal with on the phone. Highly recommended for everything they sell. The one who said about plastic parts must not have any ARs or ever had any BLACK weapons. OooRaaa"

"I had been interested in a box fed shotgun for quite a while but just couldn't pull the trigger on a purchase because of all the reports of the Saigas needing work out of the box to make them reliable. Also, I have a couple of friends with Saigas and they both spent a lot of money after the initial purchase because of reliability issues. The MKA-1919 caught my attention in a YouTube video a few months ago and a few reports of being decently reliable out of the box. When I saw it listed on Cheaper Than Dirt for such a cheap price, I decided to make the purchase.The MKA-1919 arrived at my local FFL dealer in about 5 days. The dealer called me to let me know it was in and I picked it up the next day.Upon inspection of the MKA-1919, it looks and feels sort of cheap. However, polymer components can give that impression, so I wasn't discouraged. Everything seemed to be relatively well fit, though there was some molding flash on the polymer lower where it mates with the upper that I trimmed off with a razor blade. Disassembly is easy, though it's not tool free, which was a little disappointing. The internals are familiar for anyone with a Remington 1100 experience, which is nice. All the metal components seem well engineered and well made.About two weeks after receiving the MKA-1919, Cheaper Than Dirt started carrying the Akdal 10 round magazines, two of which I ordered.Today, about four weeks after receiving my MKA-1919, I finally got a chance to shoot it. A few friends and I put 120 rounds of 2-3/4\" shells through it. Mostly 00 buck and slugs, but about 20 shells of #6 shot. Tried a couple of #9 shot, but as expected, it didn't have enough punch to operate the MKA-1919 and they both failed to eject. The #6 ran just fine, surprisingly, and at that point, the gun only had about 30 other shells through it.All of the 00 buck, slugs, and #6 ran without a hitch. What a bunch of fun. The gun passed through several of my friends' hands and everybody had a smi...."

"Overall, a good shotgun. I removed the front sight and carry handle and mounted a Sightmark Ultra Shot Reflex Sight. I also purchased some 10 rd mags. Loading the mags is a chore. I put over 100 rds through it and only had a couple of problems with feeds. For some reason, the factory 5 rd 2.75\" mag wouldn't feed the final slug shell, but worked fine on other shells. Also, the gun wouldn't cycle low recoil shells. The sight would sometimes \"turn off\" from the recoil, but I think I managed to get that corrected. Also, the hand guard retention screw (which is hand-tightened) had a tendency to loosen up. I will be replacing the charging handle with an over-sized unit for sure. It's too small and is hard on the fingers. That's my biggest complaint of the gun. Rate of fire was excellent (as fast as I could pull the trigger). In fact, faster than I could get back on target from the recoil. All in all, a good home defense weapon."

"I just got the 1919 and liked the feel and handling, but started to fire the break-in rounds and none would eject. Had to pull all by hand 2-3/4\" shells. On about the 22nd shot, the bolt is solidly locked closed.Not happy about a brand new gun with such a problem!Think about this seriously before buying one!!Have not had a reply from RAAC yet. UPDATE: Here is what I have found on my stuck bolt. It is actually the low brass shells sticking. Tapped the stuck shell out very gently, then tried more shots - still no auto eject. BUT, with high (long) brass shells, this gun operates flawlessly. As fast as you can pull the trigger, she spits them out!!!Maybe it will take low brass later. The info did not specify high power or long brass shells!Live and learn. If you are looking for a fast handling semi, this appears to be it."

"This gun does not even come close to ejecting a lo-brass shell. After each shot, the empty case remains in the chamber, and the action must be cycled by hand. It does a bit better with a hi-brass shell, but doesn't eject it completely, and the empties get jammed between the bolt and the receiver.I didn't have any magnum shells around to try, but it appears that this gun needs quite stiff loads to drive the bolt back far enough and hard enough to eject an empty shell and pick up a new one.The shoulder pad is quite soft and \"grabby\" rubber. It will catch on any clothing it touches as you bring it up into your shoulder. It's nice that it's non-slip once it's in place, but not very reliable for getting the gun into position quickly.The manual gives no info on the included choke tubes or their use, so I had to use a micrometer to measure which ones had more choke and which ones had less choke. The handguards are quite narrow and quite tall. I'd have preferred it (and a better feel) if at least the bottom handguard had a bit more width at the bottom.I will call the manufacturer/distributor to see if I can get a fix for the Failure to Eject."

"Just got back from the range. Out of the box, all controls worked perfectly. 45 rounds of Winchester #4 lead 1.25 oz 3.25 dram and only one misfeed. My bad; I was trying to cause a mis-cycle by light griping. The gun likes hot loads. It will not cycle the painless stuff yet. I am quit pleased so far. Great buy!"

"Taken directly from the online owners manual: Remember that the shotgun functions by the use of kinetic energy generated by the recoil. Therefore, one must always use ammunition that is strong enough to fully cycle the action. The MKA 1919 shotgun may require a breaking in period before it will function using light loads. If you experience any initial functioning problems, we recommend firing 3-4 boxes of standard hunting cartridges.Also: EACH CHOKE CAN BE IDENTIFIED BY THE NUMBER OF NOTCHES ON IT (FULL-1 NOTCH, MODIFIED-3 NOTCHES, AND CYLINDER BORE-5 NOTCHES).I hope this helps those that are having some issues. Mine should be here in a few days. I will give you my hands on review then."

"Do a search for \"MKA-1919 Gas Booster Bushing.\" This cheap part helps with the gun not cycling low power loads. As for the chokes, it does say in the manual - full choke = 1 notch, modified = 3 notches, cylinder bore = 5 notches."

"I was going back and forth between a standard 12 gauge pump or a semi-auto and, obviously, the semi-auto won. I received the MKA-1919 and I'm very happy with my purchase. It has low recoil and has operated without any problems. I did purchase this for home protection and the ability to throw five rounds down range within a few seconds should be a good deterrent for anyone that happens to make the mistake of breaking into the wrong home."

"Enjoying the MKA-1919. Lighter loads (7-1/2 shot 3-1/4 drams) are hit and miss. Initial rounds jammed every single time. After running about 50 3-3/4 drams and 100 3-1/4 drams through it, it loosened up. I'm at about one stovepipe in 10 3-1/4 drams rounds.I knew about the light loads going in, but the range had requirements on lead shot and I had no other ammo.Not happy with the Picatinny rail. Bought a Picatinny laser sight with a \"quick release\" lever. Could not mount it from the rear of the rail and the hand guards prevented a front mount (without removing the guards). Not happy with the front site. There isn't a notch for dead center once you remove the site. There is no left or right adjustment on the front site. I'd rather have a front site that was easier to remove and accurate to reinstall.All that said though? FUN to shoot. Put in the right ammo and that thing will fire as quickly as you can pull the trigger. I found it to be adequately accurate as a tactical shotgun."

"Received my MKA-1919 a couple weeks ago, but haven't had time to hit the range until today. Overall impression was that the finish was unimpressive, with mold parting lines on the stock and handguards a little rough, etc. Not a problem, because I plan to replace those in the near future. Took it to the range this morning and put a couple of boxes of relative light target loads through it. Had about 3 failures to eject and failures to load in the first 2 magazines. After that, they cycled flawlessly. Ran 25 rounds of 2-3/4\", low brass, 1-1/8 oz, #7-1/2's through it with no further problems. Loaded up with #4 3\"magnum rounds and cut loose with 5 rounds. That was a load and made me wish the recoil pad was a bit thicker. Switched back to the #7-1/2's and polised off another box of 25 rounds with no problems.My overall impression after shooting this gun, is that with different handguards (Tooth and Nail Armory foreend on order) and adjustable stock and some better optics, this will be one stout gun that will be fun to shoot for a long time to come.Of course, some changes will be necessary to insure 922(r) compliance, but that is not insurmountable and those parts are on order. Overall, I rate this shotgun a very good value for the money spent."

"Nice gun..Little loose out the box but once snugged up it is a solid gun. Sights have a bit to be desired but over all shoots a great pattern at 25 35 yards with #8 high or low brass 2 3/4\" shots. Had 2 stove pipes with low brass after about one box of high brass shells so I popped the high brass back in and shot 2 more boxes through her and put the low brass back in and she performed perfectly. Shot three more boxes of just low brass without one hang up and is very accurate. Just don't take the front sight off with out marking its center first on the barrel but like I said the sights have a little to desire. Great gun! I love it!"

"This was a very easy purchase . 4 days. My FFL dealer was even surprised how fast it came in. I've run about 60 rounds threw it from 3\" double mag to 2\"3/4 target loads for skeet. It has ran perfect on the heavy hi brass it's starting to work well on the target loads also. It takes 100 rounds to break in but I really believe that it will be broke in in about another 25 rounds. I really like how well it does with slugs man I can cover a Skoal can with 5 rounds at 50 meters with it. And the chokes are great it will hit skeet with the best of them. Dam* good weapon or hunting gun. For the money I don't think there is anything out there to compare it to. And it looks cool."

"Ordered this shotgun and had it in hand at my FFL within 4 days! This was even during their 2 week delayed shipping period. Reason for 4 stars is the amount of rounds that must be sent down range before reliable functioning occurs. This has been fixed to my knowledge with the new XN models. Other reason for 4 stars is the feel of the gun as it comes out of the box. Since purchase I have installed basically every aftermarket part Tooth and Nail Armory offers and have found the gun to be much more enjoyable to shoot. It improves the fit and feel of the shotgun 100%. Props to Cheaper Than Dirt for offering a great gun at a great price."

"I have had this gun for about 5 months now and I have put about 800 rounds through it. It is pretty accurate even with the factory sites. It feeds every single brand of ammo I put through it without any problems. I do love this gun however here are a few negatives about it.Disassembly is slightly difficult even with practice. The main bolt that keeps the butt stock in place is liable to strip over time if not gently hammered apart from the receiver. Rubber mallet is recommended but no matter what you do it's still hard on it. The feeding ramp is polymer...after about my 800 rounds I have put through it, the ramp looks like it has taken a real beating. That really worries me because it's basically molded as onto the main part of the lower. I don't know how much longer it will last. Without any sites on it whatsoever it is incredibly inaccurate. Really other than that, I am very happy with this gun. I'm excited to put a red dot on it."

"No surprises yet with this gun. Put about 100+ rounds of various types of shells through it, including 2-3/4\", 3\" and 3\" Magnums. It will get your attention. No complaints - I read the material, other reviews and got what I expected. Yes - there are plastic/polymer parts - just like it says. If you want to spend about $600 for a semi-auto package, this is a solid buy. CTD delivered as well. I'm satisfied with this weapon and the purchase."

"I am very happy with this shotgun. After the \"break-in\" period it functions flawless and doesn't have as much recoil as I was expecting. All I can say is you have to be patient don't get discouraged if you are getting jambs for the first 50-60 rounds it does get better. The last 100 rounds were perfect no more jambs. For having a short barrel it is very accurate. I honestly couldn't be happier and would recommend this shotgun to anyone looking for this type of shotgun."

"I don't want to be \"that\" guy that bashes the gun simply because I myself thought it was a really cool gun at first and ended up buying it when it was very new on the market. Everything on CTD's part went great. However I was told this gun was going to be reliable after the break in period and it wasn't at all. It cycled light load shells horribly! And I found the more aftermarket parts I bought for it made it function even worse! I sold the gun recently for half of what I put into it just so I could get rid of it and get myself a MUCH more reliable shotgun. I wouldn't recommend the gun nor would I buy it again. Who wants a gun that doesn't fire properly when you want it to."

"I definitely like this shotgun. After the initial break-in period, which I used 5 boxes of Hornady's SST slugs rated at 2,000 FPS, it shoots just fine. I have found something by experimenting with different loads from different ammunition companies. Loads, regardless of hunting or target variety, need to be over 1,200 FPS. Loads at 1,150 FPS were hit or miss, anything below 1,150 FPS it would jam. The new magazines they shipped from the factory are PERFECT. Now, you don't have to find the 3\" magazine to shoot 3\" or vice versa; both mags are the same. I would serious recommend this shotgun to anyone looking for something like this."

I have made some nifty mods to it and it shoots well BUT it does not like standard 2 3/4 inch shell much unless they are high brass or magnums. You can change the recoil spring but that is a pain and there is another spacer option which will allow it to function better. OVERALL I love this thing and with a 10 rd mag it is AWESOME."
