New G Force Arms 12 GA semi-auto bullpup shotgun. I haden't discovered this model until today when I went to the LGS to see if they had or could get me a Radikal NK-1, Black Aces Tactical Pro Series, or a ATI Bulldog SGA. All three models were roughly the same in form and function, with AR styling and all having picatinny rails top and bottom and adjustable sights. The only bullpup S.A. shotgun they had was the G Force GFY-1. The price was marked at $700.00 which was a bit more than I wanted to pay for this gun, as the others were selling for $499 and $549 in Palmetto State, depending on which model I was looking at. I asked them if they could do anything on the price, because I was really wanting to buy something for about 500-550 $. I was told I could have it for $623.00 plus tax and $5.00 background check. BTW, the G Force and the Radikal Arms NK-1 are made by Radikal Arms and are very similar. The G Force is $100.00 more than the NK-1.
I had to go home to check it out on the internet. I found it on the Palmetto website and compared it to the other brands listed. It had a slightly lower rating in "stars" that the other three I looked at there. After due consideration I called them up and told them I wanted to come back and look at it again and asked if there was an instruction booklet with it in the box, which they said yes.
Once I got back I looked at it, saw the booklet and told them "lets do it." The gun came with 2 five round mags, and 3 chokes for different loads. I added a 10 round mag and a foregrip, and walked out a happy bullpup owner, and shy $741.00 in the wallet. Considering the price would have been $599.99 plus shipping, FFL transfer through PSA, I ended up with a reasonably fair deal by using the local guys.
Here's a picture of the item from Palmetto State:

I probably won't get to shoot this for a while, until my right shoulder heals up and can stand the recoil from this on my shoulder. I will make a range report once I can get to the range and try it out.

    It's pretty impressive when in the same room with it. The barrel is 18.5 inches, with the total length being 28. This is great for close quarters inside of a house if ever required, and It would make a great street sweeper at an ANTIFA riot.

    Hopefully the recoil spring will obsorb its fair share of the recoil.
  • Make_My_DayMake_My_Day Senior Member Posts: 7,800 Senior Member
    Supposedly, the recoil on this is fairly mild, because of it's configuration.

    I really need you to go to a trap range with that gun and video the other shooters reactions when you come up to the line 😁

    What is FFL?

    While handling my new SG yesterday, I found that the Fire/Safety switch is incredibly stiff to move from one position to the other. In doing so, I gouged a small amount of skin from a finger. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening, and what can I do to make it easier to move the switch?

    The safety and trigger group seem to be a variation of the AR.  I'll bet you because of the adaptation of the trigger to the bullpen design there is some sort of a transfer bar system in place that is probably impeding the safety's free movement.  I'd take the thing apart and start there.

    Before you take it all the way apart, make sure it is not binding from a too tight fit.  Sometimes all it needs is some grease and to work it several times.

    It is very similar to the AR in looks and design, from what I can tell. I'll try lubing it from the outside first and see if that helps.
