    excellent except for mags.
    I purchased yesterday but I find I am having a difficult time getting extra mags. There are some to be modified but weakness in those. The only ones that seem great are over 50.00 a piece. They are special order.

    Couldn't be happier
    A week ago I had never heard of this item. Was impressed how it felt. Decided to do some research. I saw all the videos and feed back ( both good and bad). Went in today as soon as the store opened. They had no problem l...etting my disassemble one out of the box. I was happy with the inspection. Bought the gun, took it out to the property. Disassembled it again cleaned all the packing gunk off, sprayed it down with Rim Oil. I went ahead a set the gas setting to #3. Had a few failure to ejections on the first mag, then fired great the rest of the time. I tried buckshot, target loads, slugs, no problem. They all cycled. more

    Love this gun
    I got this gun a few months ago. My first outing at the range I was shooting #8 low brass and it did have a few cycling issues. I how use 00, 1 or 2 and high brass and keep the gas chamber set on 1 for maximum life. usin...g this I have had no issues at all. I did put a holographic scope on it as well as a sling from a Mosin Nagant. Also I got a 10 round magazine from CS Specialty mags so it really is a good home protection gun. more

    Great shotgun, rough looking.. but works great
    I bought this on May 2018. I read all the reviews and videos on youtube about previous owners experiences. I sprayed the gun down dripping wet with RemOil, and set the gas tube to "3". I dont know what other pe...ople have done or not done to make this gun not work but mine works flawlessly. Ran 100 rounds through gun first day. Made sure it was nicely lubed with rem oil throughout firing. The safety is a bit rough, probably a good idea to file it down a bit to make the punched metal smoother or bend the safety lever outwards a little. I set the gas tub number to "3" to get as much gas as possible. BTW the gas tube setting is indicated by the top notch area of the barrel with notch towards the barrel) I used the white box winchester, 1200fps 8 shot target loads, they work just fine and cycles great. I know most people recommend 1250 to 1300 fps shells but regualr winchester clay target white boxes work just fine. Another tip from another user was to use ultra fine sandpaper 800-1000 grit to smooth out contact points on the bolt, and use a fine file to smooth out a small portion of the insertion claw to a 45 degree angle to allow for a better chambering of incoming shells. I'm not gonna try this because mine is cycling and seating the shells into the chamber just fine. But I will try to use a ultra fine sand paper or metal polish buff cream to smooth out the bolt and any other internal contact parts. hope this helps. more

    Awesome !!!!!!
    I purchased this in February and I'm glad I did. Brought it home with a grin on my face. Cleaned the tooling and storage oil off, gave a good once over and stepped out back and fired several rounds, I had no issues ...with mine cycling low brass / low velocity after running 25-30 #4 high brass through it. It cycles the Winchester target loads #7.5 shot with ease on gas setting 2, and all high brass on gas setting on 1. It's built like a tank !!! And ugly as one !!! But has proved itself very reliable . My addvice is to not give up on right off the bat, shoot it, work the action by hand when done cleaning it . It does need a little " breaking in" but after that, it's good to go !!!!! The recoil impulse on the gun is amazing, it's a soft push to the shoulder, not a sharp jarring punch as most pumps and single shots are. more

    Bought this about four months ago, shot more than 200 rounds. I like it very much BUT this gun is just for fun at the range NOT for home defense. This is not reliable gun.

    Gun works great, Owner needs help
    Bought on sale two months ago for $399. You must use the high velocity, 1250 FPS or higher shells. I use nothing but slugs, set the gas to 3 and danm this baby hums. Over 300 rounds through it and never a fail. C-Spec ha...s nice 10 round magazines that fit and work perfectly. more

    Seems to be just as well built as a Vepr
    Seems to be built pretty solid. I just bought it about a week ago so I haven’t got a chance to shoot it yet. But all in all from what I can tell it seems to be well made.

    Money well spent!
    I've had this shotgun for a week and have put about 200rds through it with only 1 FTE. It's a great gun for the money and I'm sure it will last a long time.

    Great Saiga clone that needs a little breaking-in.
    I bought this gun last weekend at Academy on a Hot Deal for $399 and came home to shoot it right away. Pulling the gun out of the box, it had a fantastic heavy weight and appeared to be a very well-built firearm. The gun... came with two 5-round magazines that require some adjusting to get the magazine to lock into the mag well, similar to an SKS or Mini-14. On first shooting, I was very disappointed. First shot, and the shell failed to eject. The same thing happened for each of the five shells. I was using Winchester AA rounds, and scratched my head. After some reading, this gun has multiple gas port selector, and it needs to be switched to 3" for optimum firing. The AA shells were also a lower velocity, and this gun requires approximately 1250 FPS velocity shells in order to cycle correctly. After changing the shells the a higher velocity, the gun functioned flawlessly, firing 5 shells in a little under 3 seconds. I have ordered an SGM 12 round Saiga magazine after reading reviews that claim it works well with the JTS. To get a Saiga 12 Gauge for $450, this gun is a no-brainer, provided you do your research first and use high velocity shells! I'm looking forward to zombie killing with this one! more

    Alot of fun to shoot!!! Use 1300 high velocity shells and it will cycle every time! Tried a SMG 12rd magazine for a Saiga 12, and worked fine!!! Very good value, and a dependable shotgun!!!

    Warranty
    Purchased on 26 Feb 2018. The most dirty gun that I ever bought, BUT I love it after hours of cleaning. I asked the Assistant about the limited warranty and was advised that because this product was made for Academy; the...refore, it's a life time warranty. Any problems just bring it back to shop. Is that true? more

    $399 was cheap for this much fun!
    Just bought the JTS AR12 shot gun today, used gun spray lube on the moving parts before using. Shot 60 rounds of high brass ammo through it without any problems. Looks like its straight out of a Terminator movie!

    Great for the price!
    Bought the gun yesterday and greased it up with some CLP before taking it to the range today. Shot 100 shells of 00 buck and 10 one ounce slugs on gas setting 1. Didn't have a single failure to feed or failure to ej...ect! Can't wait to throw on a red dot and go hog hunting with it. more

    Most fun I’ve had in long time
    I purchased this shotgun about three months ago. Had always wanted a tactical style shotgun. Saigia was cost prohibited. I was very impressed with this one. Did my research first. When this came on sale for just under $4...00.00 at Academy I took a chance on it. Took it home dismantled it and lubed it up good. Read instructions provided. It fires low power loads at 3 setting as advertised. Buck and slugs at either 2 or 1 setting . In addition it is a awe inspiring site just sitting in my gun room. Lots of questions about it from my friends. Would and have recommended it to friends. more

    Well-designed shotgun!
    Traded for the shotgun. Smooth lug on bolt per You Tube advice to make sure shells seat properly for extractor to grab them and then shot Winchester and Federal 6 shot through it. Couple of FTEs with Winchester, changed ...gas port to "3" and reloaded 5-rd mags and shot again. Flawless. Adjust red-dot site (Tru Glo clone) and it shoots great! more

    fun gun!
    Recently bought one of these after doing some research on it, and like many say it is picky on ammo but I've found as long as it's 1250 fps or higher it cycles fine the academy monarch ammo works great and is o...nly $4.99. However the machine work on the bolt and BCG is HORRIBLE, I could see where the bit was moving too slow or was dull as it left deep circular marks in the metal and there are areas where it's pitted. All this can me fixed by using some sand papaer on it and being careful not to go overboard with it then polishing it smooth. more
