mag fed shotgun

Greetings everyone. Been a long time lurker and have gotten some really good information by just reading and listening. Well I am at a point I want to move forward with a mag feed shotgun for mostly 3 gun. I looked and held all offerings a\I could find and the local gun shows and local gun stores.  So I am not looking to spend a lot, this is just a toy and I am not looking to compete at anything but local events at this moment. I have no issues tweaking and even making my own parts ( I work for a machine shop and have access to about any machine I would need) 

So two models that stand out for just pricing alone are the Lynx and the panzer AR-12

 

- the lynx:  seems to get good reviews but I am just not an AK guy. Never owned one. I have nothing against them just never owned one. I have shot several though, so I am not totally unfamiliar. It seems there is a good amount of aftermarket that would be usable from Saigas and similar models

 

- the panzer ( GEN 3 model) I see some reviews and so far they have been positive ( not looking at the pro model only standard ar12) . After breaking in period I see and read they function fine with walmart specials.   Now the standard model is a polymer lower / stock., and I am actually totally fine with that, and truth be told for my needs I do not see a need for the all aluminum . If I was competing in a championship and shooting sever times a week I could justify the pro ( or a typhoon) GEN 3

 

 

My question really is about the panzer, even though I have looked and held them ( an I like the feel) I do not see anything on here about them . I am wondering are they just too new, unknown, or just to inexpensive for most people to even look at ?  Is there an big problem I am just not seeing ?

 

 

any and all helpful comments appreciated

 

Regards

Charles

I don't have any experience with the Panzer but I do have with the Lynx. It's a solid gun for the money. I also have, and tested the Cheetah, a similar and earlier version. Both run about 95% out of the box. One of my sponsors is Carolina Shooters Supply and they carry a lot of aftermarket parts for them. If you have any questions, let me know. Also, If you are interested, PM me and I can hook you up with a discount code.

Donno thanks for the information on the Lynx.  I like them but I am not sure I want an AK shotgun. still on the radar and that may be what I end up with. also thank you very much for the offer I will keep that in mind if I go that route.

again not looking to spend the money ( 600+ish) this is just a toy for me . Two thing rle out the VR80 the cost, and I really did not like the feel of it. I cant see spensding that money on something I am not comfortable with

 

really the decision and thread are about the panzer or lynx .

 

thanks

I have a Lynx and it ran great right out of the box. It has been extensively upgraded with parts from Carolina Shooters Supply.

hump thanks for the feedback .  still on the fence about the lynx being an AK . Not sure maybe I can find one to shoot

A buddy of mine has a small gun store and has been testing one of these in 3-gun & shotgun matches. So far it has been fairly reliable. Needs hotter plus 1250fps rounds. Got dirty quickly and had some issues with parts coming loose. I think if you don't mind sorting out a few bugs it might be OK for light duty, but not if you are serious.

 

Couple of other guys we shoot with have them and same type of reliability issue.

I love mine, but as mentioned, when you first get it home, take the time to locktite everything.

They do really only like 1300+fps velocities initially, but if you'll run a couple hundred rounds of the faster stuff, you can get away with 1250+ and a little slower with no stovepipes from then on.

 

Unless you reload yourself, there's not a lot of high-velocity store-bought shotshell available with low enough recoil to be a great choice for a competition gun...but it's very reliable and fun as hell.
