Lightweight but strong and steel-proofed sums up the SPZ ME range by Turkish gunmaker Yildiz.

The SPZ ME range of Yildiz shotgun has a growing following among British shooters. In Fieldsports Channel’s research, viewer Paul from the UK rates his SPZ ME five stars for looks, reliability and value for money. He uses it for pest control. Chris from the UK uses his for clays and gives it five stars for reliability and value for money, and four stars for looks.

Eastern promise: the SPZ ME

 

Richard Ryan from Raytrade, Yildiz dealers which import the Yildiz shotgun to the UK, says shooters shouldn’t be fooled by the grade 2 wood, accidentally revealing a company secret.

“We have some stunners there – and some of them end up in a staff’s gun safe rather than on the shelves,” he says.

It’s not just the Turkish walnut and price at £599 (non-ejectors £499) that are attractive about the SPZ ME. In Fieldsports Channel’s research, viewer Paul from the UK rates his SPZ ME five stars for looks, reliability and value for money. He uses it for pest control. Chris from the UK uses his for clays and gives it five stars for reliability and value for money, and four stars for looks.

“Five-year warranty on an alloy action gun is something not anyone else in fact will offer to give because most alloy actions guns just won’t take it – these will,” says Richard. “Absolutely bombproof bit of kit.”

The latest variation of the Yildiz shotgun SPZ ME is the Steel Sporter Black, which retails at under £1,000.

“This is very much the SPZ ME but with a steel action,” says Richard. “Benefits? it will take some very heavy punishment. Anyone looking to cope with a lot of shooting will want that extra weight for recoil absorption.”

The look of the shotgun is “understated,” he says, compared to some of the others in the range. It has a fine plain black finish.

 

“This particular model is new this game season. Those looking for a good all-round gun… what’s not to like?”

For another all-round, well-priced one, check out the Pro Black Sporter. Here’s what Richard has to say about it:
