The MKA 1919 A Very Cool ‘AR-Style’ 12 Gauge Shotgun
Our old friend Kyle Myers (aka FPS Russia) is here showing us a very cool shotgun in this video. Even though this video was posted to YouTube 5 years ago, I did some digging and found-out more regarding the MKA 1919, which I’ll put further down in this article.
Here are some interesting things that you may, or may not know, about FPSRussia:
When YouTube was just beginning to create big stars, Kyle Myers was able to fill a very niche, but popular demand. With the persona of Dmitri Potapoff, he created the FPSRussia channel, where he demonstrated a variety of firearms and explosives. In 2013, a member of the FPSRussia crew was found dead. There was an investigation, and later a raid by the ATF. Now, FPSRussia is again one of the most popular firearms channels on YouTube.
Here is some info regarding the gun being showcased in the video courtesy of MKAarms:
The “MKA 1919 Match” is a gas operated, semi-automatic shotgun. It is designed for use by civilian and security markets.The “MKA 1919 Match” is unlike many other 12 gauge shotguns as it is very light and ergonomic, this is due to the use of modern and high strength composites. The mix of AR and semi-auto shotgun features balance out well to create a very workable, flexible shotgun.The “MKA 1919 Match” semi-automatic shotgun uses a conventional gas operated action which is located around the support tube that runs below the barrel. The return spring is also located around the same support tube which is concealed by an enlarged polymer handguard. The barrel can be very easily removed from the upper receiver.The upper receiver is manufactured from high grade aluminum alloy while the lower receiver, pistol grip, and stock are manufactured as one piece from impact resistant polymer. On the upper receiver, an integral picatinny rail exists which will accept detachable carrying handle or optional red-dot or other optical sight attachments.
