The A620 is a 20-bore semi-auto from a relatively new Turkish manufacturer. Armsan was founded in 2006, and this gun shows some very clever thinking I am surprised no-one has come up with before. The gun comes with two stocks – hence the “Combo” in its title. One is for adults, while a shorter version is for juniors.
Despite its relative youth, even among Turkish manufacturers, Armsan now rates among the top of the country’s gun producers. They make a good variety of semi-autos and pump actions, with wood and synthetic stocks and fore-ends and a variety of metal finishes. Bores go from 12 down to 28.
This gun has 3-inch chambers and steel-proofed barrels, and the gas-fed mechanism will deal with cartridges down to 21 grams. In other words, youngsters can begin with very lightly-recoiling cartridges. Barrel lengths of 26 and 28 inches are available, and the gun comes with a set of multichoke tubes.
The adult stock gives a length of pull of 14 ½ inches, while the junior stock length is 12 ½ inches.
