USA – -( RETAY ARMS LTD. STI. of Konya Turkey announces that it plans to display the latest incarnation of its wildly successful Masai Mara Shotgun at the 2019 SHOT SHOW In Las Vegas NV.

The Masai Mara SP ( Special Purpose ) will chamber 2 ¾ – 3.5” 12ga shotgun ammunition using the patented “Inertia Plus” rotation bolt system that has become the cornerstone of the company’s rise to popularity.

The Masai Mara 3.5 SP will offer the same unprecedented lightweight performance and balance that has made the 3” version so sought after among waterfowl hunters and will add the flexibility to chamber ALL commercially available 12ga ammunition.

Masai Mara is a popular line of lightweight high performance semi-automatic recoil driven shotguns based on the original design by Bruno Civolani. They feature the Retay Inertia Plus ™ bolt system. Inertia Plus ™ is the world’s most advanced and refined kinetic energy driven rotating shotgun bolt design.

The Retay Inertia Plus System is capable of effectively cycling lightweight and low recoil shotgun shell loads as well as heavy hunting loads and eliminates misfires by ensuring the system’s rotating bolt locks into the battery with the chamber under all conditions, while at the same time preventing unintended disengagement.

The Inertia Plus System has been called “the first affordable, obvious, and substantial improvement to the Bruno Civolani action in 50 years”

A Retay 12 gauge capable of cycling 3.5″, 3″ and 2.3/4″ shells in premium finishes and a removable trigger-group is awesome! Coupled with the inertia-plus and able to be equipped with a 26 inch barrel is even better. The removable and replaceable extractor design is also a superb innovation. And by coming with a 26 inch barrel, the weight can be reduced to just under 7 pounds. The lightness and superb handling from a lighter than 7 pound 12 gauge is what I am really attracted to. Oh, and the forcing cone and back-bored barrel with premium chokes is better… Read more »
