Lever-Action Shotgun

With classic lever-action shotguns such as the Winchester Model 1887 being reproduced, you’re probably wondering why Adler Arms would show what looks like a lever-action Benelli. Well, you can’t own semi-autos everywhere, so this is probably nothing more than a work-around for shotgunners wanting additional capacity and faster follow-up shots. I didn’t actually get to handle this gun at SHOT, but am including it in the SHOT Show coverage simply for the entertainment and ingenuity value. I’m sure this will appeal to some because it’s different, but for my money, I opt for a pump-action instead.
