    Who would have made this gun? Looks like a decent deal for under $800 bucks

    I saw one of these at the PRO gun show in Cols, Oh. last month. May be the same gun???

    Cant recall what the owner told me as to manufacture.

    If custom made as Roger says a real bargain in my view.

    Regards...Gerald

    I had a friend that bought one also and the metal was a lot softer he finally sold it forgot what he gave for it probably around 5 to 6 hundred bucks.

    And yes we are from KY

    Boy, for $750 he could have bought a real Ljutic.

    Am I the only one who can see the big gaps in the forend iron?

    I saw one of those 15 years ago in Bernie Faskell's place. He had a real Ljutic there, too.

    We put them side by side and had a good laugh.

    Overbored, I think you are right; it was Mexico, not China.

    Mexico had never made any shotguns until it started making the Mavericks pumps.

    Definitevely China.

    The only fake I've ever seen up close was back in the mid to late 80's. The owner referred to it as a 'Spanish Ljutic'.

    I don't know if it was Spanish or not but it most certainly wasn't a Ljutic.

    Worked on one a few years back for a fella. Action loose as a goose..he called it built in lead...ended up installing a new oversize pivot pin & fitted it to the barrel...but was really beyond hope. Made in Spain..Poor quality materials (soft) but he had fun with it..and shot it pretty darn good when it worked.

    There were 2 guys had it built. One guy from Ohio and the other guy was from Michigan. And it was made in Spain. They made it until Ljutic forced them to quit making it.Ljutic parts even interchanged in it.I even know their names. On their first shipment of 5 guns in to the states, I got the 3rd one. The first night I got it I broke a 50 in a jackpot shoot.I shot it for many years with no troubles at all.

    My buddy shot his good also I guess it was the thought of shooting a Ljutic and got it a lot cheaper but after a lot of the wild Annies and other big Bommer games it started to come loose so he decided to get a real gun made for the trap game's forgot what he got now either a Model-12 or a Kreigoff.
