 Well I hit my LGS yesterday and while I was there I found a new EAA MKE 1923 bullpup semi-auto shotgun. I was actually impressed at the quality of the weapon and the design. The price was right, so it followed me home.

 It comes with two, five round magazines, and after a few minutes of surfing the internet I ordered a 10 round factory steel magazine, and a 10 round polymer Pro-Mag. I will be do some testing of the new purchase as soon as the other magazines arrive. Photos and range report to follow.

I just saw these listed and price seemed awfully tempting, chokes for barrel too. Let us know how it shoots/feeds assorted ammo.

Does it use the same magazines as the 1919?

A reviewer on Buds says they're not interchangeable. https://www.budsgunshop.com/catalog/product_info.php/products_id/415004363
Getting mixed info.
Lets us know if the ones you ordered are compatible or not.

In comparing photos of both the 1919 and 1923 magazine the locking tab/notch are different

the 1919 magazine has side locking notch while the 1923 magazine has a front locking tab.

Compare that to

1919



Well poo
I was hoping they would be the same mag.

FYI, while the locking tabs are different, the mag bodies are otherwise the same, so extensions made for the 1919 mags should work just fine.  Ex:

I have this beast.  I call it the space gun.

The mka1919 mags will work if you make the catch an the front, similar to the 1923 mags.  

I measured where the tab is located and used a dremel disc to cut a slot.  Then i slowly pried the slot outward to make the catch tab.

I just got a 1923 fired 6 rounds an charging handle spring broke, had hard time getting it apart untill I found apost that told about the bolt in the bottom.So far my biggest complaint is poor customer service. They seem unintrested in my problem. So let's hope nothing major fails

I think he was referring to a 1919 mag since at the time he was told they were the same mag as for the 1923

Walked out of the gunshop with one.
Got home and have two quick observations

1) There's a bit of play in the rail since it's not attached to the barrel and just kind of loosely fits over it. Not sure if on a close range shotgun that's going to matter much but does make me wonder if it's going to be needing to be rezeroed after disassembly. I have a 12ga laser bore sighter I'm going to use on it today.  Again it's a shotgun so it may be acceptable. With a rifled slug this would be an definite problem but with buckshot or birdshot maybe not. Testing will tell.

2) They could of have made getting to the gas ring easier or better yet installed an auto gas regulator. I'm assuming it uses the same rings as on the 1919 since looking at 1919 manual online it seems to be basically the same setup.

More to come. Don't know when I'll be making it to the range.   Cry

I just saw this thing in an ad on Arfcom today.

http://eaacorp.com/guns/long-guns/mka-1923-430

I can't believe there hasn't been more talk about this. It's the "not-a-Tavor" Tavor shotgun. It looks better than IWI's own upcoming offering, the TS12.

Looks like the Tavor and F2000 had a love child. Interesting...

Looks like Mossberg figured out double stack shotgun mags. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5iSyVXc-jQ

Pro Mag coming out with 10 rounders?
https://www.tombstonetactical.com/catalog/pro-mag/mka-02-mka-1923-magazine-12ga-10-round-black/
Nothing on Pro Mag's website yet but if you look closely at the photo it appears to have correct catch.

Edit: Found it listed on a couple of other websites, all show out of stock at the moment.  Sad
