But when I saw this one, I started doing the mental math to figure out how to pay for it. With it’s straight grip and 32″ barrels, it’s an unusual A grade. But even though the gun looks right, that butt stock has me scratching my head. Is it […]

It is based in […]

Even though Miroku is one of the world’s oldest and largest gunmakers, we don’t hear much about them here in the States. For years, they’ve made side-by-sides and O/Us for other companies, including Charles Daly and Browning. At the same time, Miroku was also making shotguns under their own name.

Has anyone ever seen pointers like this in the US? The ones in this video are fantastic looking dogs. Maybe I’m seeing things, but they look a bit different from most EPs I’ve seen over here – leggier, deeper in the chests, and with blockier, squarer heads. Their points are lot different, too.
