Turkey, the origin of the Yildiz, is famed for excellent quality walnut and, even on value for money guns, you often find nice pieces. This SPZ ME walnut grade was within the price range, good, strong straight-grained walnut with a nice deep dark colour and some figuring and a nice traditional oil finish. yildiz firearms
The proportions are in keeping with the 20-gauge cartridge size, but handling is not affected; in fact, quite the reverse, lightness speeds up the flow and lessens fatigue. The length of pull is a good 14.25-inches (13-inch junior available at no extra cost) and has a slim, black rubber recoil pad at the rear, with a slightly rounded top and it does not snag on clothing at all when mounted. There is a small amount of cast and the low comb height naturally allows the cheek to ‘weld’ nicely to the stock, so important for correct swing and sighting.
