Both the guns sam and coal showed i think are made by the same company. I bought one under the name of escort and they are made in Turkey. Doesn't seem like a bad gun for the money but it's certainly no 870. I haven't fired mine enough to say how reliable it is. I bought it just to have something down in the basement in case some undesirable comes in upstairs being I'm down there a lot of reloading or working on other projects.
