SHOT Media Range Day 2012 – Custom MKA 1919 12 GA Shotgun


The MKA 1919 is a Turkish made 12 ga shotgun imported by RAAC. It’s modeled on the AR-15 platform in both appearance and the location and function of the safety and magazine release. The model I tried at Media Day was a variant modified for competition purposes. It features a flat upper receiver with an EOTec sight, collapsible stock, modified barrel and choke, replacement pistol grip, enlarged charging handle, and enlarged mag release. Additionally, it also had a 10-round extended magazine. It’s dubbed the ‘Zombie gun’, due to its paint job.


Despite being chambered for 12 ga shells, it was practically recoilless. Definitely a good choice to consider of you’re looking for an accurate and comfortable semi-auto shotgun.

The basic model is imported by RAAC.

    Lucky boy. How did it do on accuracy? Did you feel it was more of a ‘fun’ type of weapon or is it practical? And finally, any word on price?

    It was very accurate, especially with its low recoil and the EOTech on board. Tested it on moving targets, clay pigeons. Hit 3/4 of them.

    I think it’s a very useful and practical firearm, and since it’s based on the AR-15 platform, there’s a degree of familiarity for many existing shooters. Granted, I fired a modified model, so I’m not familiar with the out-of-the-box version, but the general feel shouldn’t be too different. It’s also worth mentioning that it was developed with security forces in mind.

    It’ll run you roughly $700-800.
