Yildiz-Pro O/U - Poorman's Perazzi?

Postby Vikram » Sun Jun 18, 2017 1:27 am

I recently came upon this gun. Said to be a Perazzi copy without Perazzi price tag. It is not advertised on Yildiz's website yet.

If one is a renowned shot and does not have Perazzi money yet, perhaps this can be considered?


Photos are from Frankonia :

Price is 2600 Euro in Germany (Roughly $3,000)

Very cool, an inexpensive(or less expensive)option to get into the sport. Nice wood on this specimen, Wonder if this grade of wood is standard on all guns

Thanks for sharing Vikram.

Turkey supplies most of the walnut and Yildiz sits on the largest stock there.



Kuzu stands alone in a hanger-like space filled with pallets piled high with gun blanks. There are around 100,000 in here in all, worth approximately £2.5 million. He says he’s personally chosen each of these and no Yildiz gun is made with the lowest grade one timber, they use only grades two to five.

In one corner there’s a pile of blanks under a black cloth. He pulls this back to show me his trove of timber. “This one is 300 years old,” he says, showing a gun blank covered in swirling figure. “If you wanted this stock for your shotgun,” he says, mentioning a leading Italian gunmaker, “the price you would pay would be $5,000 just for the stock.” These blanks go into Yildiz’s custom guns, which typically sell for £4,000.

In adjacent rooms, the stocks are carved from the blanks either by machine or hand, depending on the grade of the gun. Most are pistol grips, but there are some in the ‘English’ style. Along the floors, boxes filled with stocks and fore-ends in rows await the next step in production.

In the finishing room, hundreds of stocks are arranged on racks for oiling. Each receives five coats of oil with three days’ drying between coats. Kuzu plucks one stock out: “You won’t see a better stock in Turkey,” he says.

The rest of the article is also very interesting. If you have a minute, do go through it.

Very interesting article, always thought of Yildiz as just another one from Turkey but looks like they are making some nice shotgun.

Have seen some lower end guns in the stores here but never a higher end model.

Thanks for the link Vikram.

Looks really pretty Vikram, thanks for sharing! :) A consideration for many shooters here would be the after sales service. Beretta has been regularly holding service camps in India, with a no questions asked warranty. Perazzi too has followed suit recently. For regular shooters who end up putting a lot of ammo through their guns in a matter of a few years, that kind of support is reassuring. I believe that now A. Zoli too is offering a similar support system via their reps in India.
