Hello Sir!

They are available from Atlantic FIrearms for $609; the lowest price on the market for the highest quality product.

You may also become a dealer through them;

We are the manufacturer and importer which also stocks/distributes them, but we try to send as much business towards atlantic from these forums.

I like the concept a lot!

Not sure about the aesthetics. Still making up my mind.

If I wasn't in the midst of a divorce, I'd pick one up out of general principal.

They use the Akdal MKA 1919 mags ,factory 2-5-10's available a couple after market extensions available, feed lips and mag catch hole placement is really the only problems with this platform, easy fix. But for the price you shouldn't have to FIX new stuff.

Hello Tooth and Nail.

We are not allowed to advertise through AR-15.com forum, as the vendor advertising positions were closed when we requested it.

If you want to be a dealer you may either re-contact NATMIL(email server problem). But we also recommend that you contact Atlantic Firearms as they are a distributor for our BR-99's and forum contributor.

It looks like a great gun. But why oh why did you not have a replaceable pistol grip and stock like a M4/M16?

I would think because it is a polymer lower and it would break. Looks like they did it more like a Cav Arms lower instead of some of the other polymer AR lowers that people have break on them, and that is just with .223.

We have a prototype with a milled aluminum lower that takes standard AR-15 grips/stocks.

We will see if our dealers/distributors/investors will be willing to take this higher priced model before we take it into mass production.

What about selling the lower as an accessory? I would buy one if the price is reasonable (~$100). Also, have you considered developing a drum style magazine for these? The 10 round stick mag is really long...

Hello BusaBoy2009,

Our manufacturing is based on volume and smaller margins; we will float the idea with our distributors.

But the most interest is in our model which accepts 20 and 30 round drums. We will post more about this model later, as at instruction of our CFO we do not "hype" products which may be several months out.

We received ours earlier this week after a small glitch in shipping. Thank you Atlantic for your professional and fast response.
Within an hour after getting it home it had happily ate a box of low brass Winchester AA 71/2 shot sporting clays.
The barrel was still warm when we took it all the way down to the last pin and spring. Internals are very similar to the MKA.

This will be our prototype gun. By months end we will have added some of our favorite mod's.

All in all it's a nice shotgun!

Mine arrives Tuesday, followed by a 10 day wait period. I should be able to pick mine up and shoot it either the 28th or the 29th and I will be writing my review then.

Is that a single ring on the piston? Is is removable or part of the piston assembly?

What is parts availability supposed to look like on these?
The pusher assembly (silver/metal piece running back to the action for cycling) looks quite beefy on this thing!

There is a single "snap ring" on the piston that is removable

I would also like an additional handguard if possible. I want to install a rail for my camera, but I'd like a backup in case I goof up.

Hello Friends,

We do not have the handguard spare part available yet.

But we have filled our import permit and will begin stocking nearly every part for the BR-99. We are not sure if our handguard will fit on shotguns similar to the BR-99.

If we have good response from our distributors, we will produce a drop in full aluminum quad rail handguard.

Please let us also know which modifications or accessories you may want for the BR-99 so we may ask our distributors if they may stock such item if we are to produce it.

How about a bolt on bottom rail?

10-20 round drum mags.

That aluminum receiver you mentioned.

Some MOLLE nylon pouches for the mags (and drums if/when available).

That is my wish list so far.

Hello NATMIL,

We are a manufacturer of 922r compliant parts for imported firearms. We are currently awaiting our FFL in order to work on the weapons in our shop,
but we would like to partner directly with an importer/distributor to be able to offer "off the shelf" compliant weapons.

Many of the accessories that are desired for this platform will require compliance to the 922r rule. We will be contacting both Atlantic and NATMIL as soon as
our FFL paperwork arrives to become a dealer/distributor.

In the mean time, we are interested in all of the different modifications and accessories you mention in your posts.

Hello Mr. Busaboy,

Those are some very good recommendations. We are debating whether to do a full aluminum quad rail for drop in, or to make bolt/screw on side and lower rails for the existing handguard.

The drum has been prototyped and worked excellent, but looks silly sticking so far down from the mag well. We are thinking of doing a separate model with a low profile mag well to use some "existing drums" on the market. Note that this is not yet planned for production, but it is on our R&D table.

We do produce tactical pouches and gears as an OEM for many of your popular importers in the USA. The market is small, so we will ask our distributors if they have interest.

Hello Uzifish,

We are not allowed to advertise/discuss business on the forums as were unable to become industry partner.

We are interested in your proposal, but we must note to you that we do produce our own 922R parts for all our imported guns, as it is much cheaper than to outsource.

Nonetheless please contact Atlantic or us to become a dealer, or buy parts for your own builds.

THE BIGGEST REQUEST is a Lower Receiver capable of accepting standard AR stocks and grips
This doesn't even need to be aluminum if you can reinforce it correctly with techno-polymer. Also, since the lower of the gun is NOT the firearm, you can sell this as an accessory.

Do you have any pictures of the drum mags? I can't see them being any more absurd than the length of the 10 round stick mag, especially if they have a higher capacity.

As far as the pouches go, I would be interested in purchasing a few and if you could point me in the direction of a distributor who sells them or information on how I can buy a few, I would appreciate it.

ETA: also, I feel add on rails for the sides and the bottom (especially this) for the factory rail would be the best way to go as an aluminum forend would add unnecessary weight and complexity. The plastic forend the gun comes with is light weight, has a nice profile, and really no one is going to need the reinforcement of an aluminum rail for a bi-pod. Plastic with a bolt on rail would be more than sufficient for mounting a flashlight/laser/vertical grip (which is what 99.9999% of us would use it for).

We cannot import the shotgun if it has the bottom or side rails; so we would likely injection mold it in the USA and add it after import.

Apologies but we do not post pictures of products which we have prototyped, but are not confirmed for full scale production yet. We will ask our distributors for orders to push the requested accessories.

I just picked mine up yesterday from the 10-day wait. My range review will follow me shooting it Monday.

First impressions: fit and finish are nice, no apparent tooling marks on the metal components, the polymer components are very well fitted together with tight margins. The trigger feels crisp with minimal creep, and the safety function is very solid, locking the trigger movement similar to a cross bolt. The shotgun is extremely light for what it is, with the exception of the mags, as those suckers are pretty heavy. The factory sights are decent for a shotgun, but the "multiple reticle" rear sight is not necessary, with most of the rear sight options (especially the rear post) not being ideal to work with the front sight. The rear peep option or the rear v-option seem like the easiest to pick up the front post with from the factory options. So far I determined that the Magpul BAD lever will not fit this shotgun out of the box and a set of Troy Fixed Iron sights (takeoffs from another build) are an improvement over the factory plastic sights.

We have a prototype with a milled aluminum lower that takes standard AR-15 grips/stocks.

We will see if our dealers/distributors/investors will be willing to take this higher priced model before we take it into mass production.[/quote]this would be very desirable and probably a deciding factor in me buying one
