SDS Imports has announced it will be bringing two more Tokarev shotguns into the US, thanks to the success of the previous import. The two new shotguns are the lighter-recoil 20-gauge pump-action shotguns, the TX3 20HDA1 and the TX3 20HDMA1.
The two shotguns are both 20-gauge, as stated above, and both utilize the beautiful Turkish walnut forend and buttstock with a thick rubber recoil pad. Constructed on CNC machines and featuring aluminum receivers, the 20HDA1 is anodized with a matte blue finish on the chrome-lined barrel and the 20HDMA1 has a 41040 chromoly-steel finish. These shotguns boast a lighter-felt recoil and are said to be equally suited for home and self-defense as much as out in the field for hunting.
The TX3 20HDA1 shotgun has a non-luster, matte black finish on all exposed metal components and has an 18.5” barrel with an integrated fiber-optic front sight. The shotgun has an adjustable ghost-ring mounted on a Picatinny rail, that also comes in handy for mounting any additional optics. The TX3 20HDMA1 has an 18.5” 4140 chromoly steel barrel, and with the receiver, has been bead-blasted before the electroless nickel plating was applied, helping protect the parts from corrosion and rust.
Both shotguns have threaded barrels with a unique and ventilated head shield and will accept Benelli choke pattern tubes. The shotguns come from the factory with three choke tubes: Cylinder, Modified, and Full. With the right choke tubes, the shotguns can fire slugs and steel shots in addition to the lead shot.
The shotguns feature a contoured trigger guard assembly design that allows for fast access and throw of the Remington Model 780-style crossbar safety. Also in the assembly is the action release if a loaded shell ever needs to be removed from the barrel. The tubular magazine allows for four 3″ or five 2.75” shells to be loaded, with a magazine extension available to owners.
The TX3 20HDA1 and the TX3 20HDMA1 have an overall length of 38.25” and weigh just under 17 pounds. The TX3 20HDA1 20-gauge shotgun has an MSRP of $329.99 and TX3 20HDMA1 20-gauge shotgun has an MSRP of $339.99.
