To me I see warning signs about this gun just reading the name.
1. Leader arms: gee whiz that's really close to the company names gun designer Charles St George has used over his many decades in the industry...
2. AR-12: Not only the name of an Armalite prototype, but also one letter away from the well known AA-12 designed by firearms legend maxwell g
atchisson! The AA-12 being an AR style 12 gauge fully automatic shotgun using 20 round drum magazines...
So just in the company name and product designation alone we see two instances of attempted misdirection, if not outright duplicities, meant to
capitalize on the hard earned reputations and technical skills of others in the industry. It's a bad sign.
If you want a bennelli style operating system at saiga 12 prices go for the TriStar tech 12. It's semiautomatic with a selector that allows you to run
it in pump action should you need to. It's about $100 more if you shop carefully, and you can get an aftermarket 8 shot replacement tube.
TriStar makes decent stuff and doesn't employ deceptive naming to trick buyers into purchasing their wares.
FWIW in my experience box magazine fed shotguns are like Harley Davidson motorcycles. Great for people who like to WORK on motorcycles, terrible for
people who like to RIDE motorcycles.
