Hello guys, I shoot trap and sporting clays at a junior college in southern Oklahoma. I had something very interesting happen while I was practicing Monday. I just bought a Yildiz 12 gauge O/U that was second hand about a month ago and had previous to this incident shot approximately 500 rounds through it. Anyways, when I made it to the second round of trap my gun kinda kicked funny. I didn’t think much of it and broke the action by habit. Next thing I know the barrel is barley hanging onto the receiver and the barrel sleeve had been pushed forward. It was a crazy incident and I hope it doesn’t happen to anyone else. I bought this gun second hand and I’m not sure what policies Yildiz has.

Apparently Yildiz carries a 2 year warranty


I'm not sure I wouldn't contact them in any case... gun manufacturers often cover problems that technically are excluded from warranty, I've heard of cases where a gun manufacturer repaired or replaced a gun damaged by handloads, even though the warranty states using handloads voids the warranty. It used to be fairly common anyways, and the worst they can say is "no".
