My Gas Operated semi-auto shotgun seems to have cycling issues. Why?

The most common reason for a short cycle or jam in a gas operated semi-auto shotgun is the lack of velocity produced by the ammunition you are using.  Your Gforce Arms shotgun will perform and cycle optimally with ammunition that produces a velocity of 1,300 feet per second (FPS) or faster.

Will you be coming out with parts or accessories for sale? If so, what accessories?

Yes, in 2021 we expect to offer a number of different accessories, spare and aftermarket parts. These can be ordered from our website upon availability.

Are your shotguns compatible with Remington 870, Mossberg, or other makes and models for aftermarket stock/forend, parts and accessories?

Unfortunately, no.

If I need warranty service on my shotgun, what are the proper steps to take in order to send my gun into GForce Arms for warranty repair ?

The best way to initiate warranty service on your shotgun is to go to the service tab on our GForce Arms website at www.gforcearms.com/service. Complete and submit the form and you will immediately receive an email that your service request has been received. 

You will receive either an email or a phone call from our customer service to discuss the issue and get your shotgun back into peak operating condition.

What chokes come with each Firearm?

Check out our website firearms here for a complete listing of specs and equipment that come with each firearm.

Some firearms come with three chokes (CYL, MOD, and FULL). Others only come with a MOD choke.

All of our shotguns (except the GF99DLX) are compatible with Benelli Mobil style chokes. 

Does my GForce Arms Firearm have a warranty?

Yes, we offer a limited lifetime warranty to the original owner of the firearm.

Please visit Warranty Registration for details on the warranty.  If you have NOT registered for the warranty, you will want to do that.  It will make warranty service much easier if you need covered work done.  Please complete the warranty registration form on the warranty page listed above.  Without the warranty registration, you may have to supply a copy of the receipt for the purchase of the firearm to get warranty service. 

Where are GForce Arms shotguns made?

Our shotguns are quality made in Turkey. Fun fact: Turkey is one of the largest exporters of shotguns worldwide.

The markings on my GForce Arms shotgun states that it’s chambered for 3 inch (3”) cartridges. Can I shoot both 2 ¾” and 3” shells out of my GForce Shotgun?

Yes, you can shoot both 2 ¾” and 3” shells from your shotgun.  We do not recommend  the use of mini-shells.

Do you offer firearms for left-handed shooters?

Unfortunately, no.

Will my shotgun shoot SLUG shells?

  • We strongly recommend using an improved cylinder or cylinder choke for shooting slugs out of your GForce Arms shotgun.
  • If you own a GF991220-DLX DO NOT use slugs with this model. The GF991220-DLX come equipped with a full choke, which is far too constricted to be safely used with slugs.

Can I mount accessories on my GForce Arms shotgun?

Yes! All of our pump action shotguns come with a 3/8″ inch dovetail rail system on the top for mounting optics.  There are “dovetail to picatinny” adaptors available aftermarket to convert the dovetail rail to a picatinny rail for picatinny optics mounts.  Just do an internet search on “dovetail to picatinny rail adaptor”.

Which chokes are compatible with my GForce Arms Shotgun?

  • With the exception of the GF991220-DLX model, all of the semi-auto shotgun models are threaded to accept Benelli/Beretta Mobil choke tubes. The GF991220-DLX model comes with a thread pattern than is not compatible with any other readily available choke tube.
  • GForce Arms pump-action shotguns(4) are not threaded for the use of choke tubes or muzzle devices.

Why are the chokes that came with my GForce Arms firearm not marked? How do I tell them apart?

Our chokes come with a “notch” marking system.  Look at the muzzle end of the choke and see how many notches it has.  Here are the notch numbers and accompanying choke indication:

  • 1 notch = Full
  • 2 notches = Improved modified
  • 3 notches = Modified
  • 4 notches = Improved cylinder
  • 5 notches = Cylinder

Other Questions and Answers about Chokes:

Q: Which chokes are recommended for slugs?
A: These chokes are recommended for slugs:

  • 4 notches = Improved cylinder
  • 5 notches = Cylinder

A cylinder choke is recommended for shooting rifled slugs in a smooth-bore barrel. Sabot slugs should only be shot through our fully-rifled slug barrels.

It is not safe to shoot slugs through chokes tighter than those listed here.

Q: Which chokes are recommended for steel shot?
A: These chokes are recommended for steel shot:

  • 3 notches = Modified
  • 4 notches = Improved cylinder
  • 5 notches = Cylinder

What is the difference between heavy/light load?

There are many opinions on what a “heavy” load is.  Some define it as the weight/size of the ball inside…6 and above being standard load and below 6 being HEAVY load.  Others consider it a defining line between 2 ¾ inch as STANDARD load and 3 inch as HEAVY load.

Finally, another opinion is that of the amount of powder charge. If you follow one of these, you’re probably ok. 

What cleaning solution do you recommend?

There are many quality firearm cleaning and lubricating solutions. We use CLP Break-Free gun cleaner and lubricant after each day at the range. 

Can My 5 Round Magazine Attach to my Picatinny Rail?

Yes.

Some of the models (all models EXCEPT the GF/BR991220 model) comes with a polymer grip and picatinny rail mount on the bottom so you can mount the magazine to the picatinny rail on the bottom of your handguard. The magaziness are made so that the polymer cover on the side of the magazine faces outward towards the muzzle end of the gun, and the magazine can be attached by sliding it from the rear of the picatinny rail forward.  If you go from the front of the rail and slide back, it may not slide on.  They are made to go in one direction.
