Deal Of The Century

Century International Arms has built its business upon providing American shooters with quality innovative firearms at reasonable prices. Sometimes this means inexpensive sporting guns from places like China, Russia, Turkey and the Philippines. It also means building up semi-automatic versions of popular military weapons from demilled parts kits on newly made US receivers here at home. At the end of the day, however, nobody else really does what Century does. My personal collection is peppered with cool guns from Century and I have never had any trouble out of them.

Century’s range of shotguns appeals to the collector, the competitor, the Old West re-enactor and the security-minded individual. Their basic side-by-side coach guns are made in China and come in 12, 20 and .410. They sport exposed hammers, dual triggers, sling swivels and short barrels. Each gun incorporates rebounding hammers for safety. This means the hammers will not contact the firing pins unless the triggers are depressed. Fore-ends are beefy and the guns all maneuver well. Doc Holliday used a similar shooter in 10-gauge to help educate the Clanton gang during the gunfight at the O.K. Corral.
