RETAY Antalya

RETAY’s entry to the premium target and upland market offers a breathtaking  new design coupled with RETAY’s most innovative features for superior sporting performance!
Easton Maryland, January 10 2020 – RETAY ARMS LTD. STI. of Konya Turkey announces the release of the ALL NEW Antalya SS “Super Sport” series of semi automatic shotguns in the United States.The Antalya SS is designed to be a platform for the sport shooting enthusiast. While the line will eventually fill out to include dedicated target configurations, the 2020 launch of the Antalya line will focus on a versatile SS configuration which is well suited for a variety of pursuits. It’s a shotgun that can take the shooter from an afternoon of sporting clays to a morning pheasant hunt without missing a beat, offering flexibility and performance in one feature packed package.Like RETAY’s other offerings, the Antalya SS is powered by a stock based inertia action based on the original design by Bruno Civolani. It will feature RETAY’s patented Inertia Plus System.

Inertia Plus ™  is the world’s most advanced and refined kinetic energy driven rotating shotgun bolt design. The Retay “Inertia Plus System™”  effectively eliminates misfires that have plagued inertia shotgun until now. The system uses an ingenious active torsion mechanism inside the bolt carrier body to apply added rotational force to the bolt head. The system essentially forces the bolt head to rotate into lock up with the breach even when conditions are less than ideal. At the same time, the “Inertia Plus System™” prevents unintended disengagement of the bolt head from the breach. If disengagement is caused by sudden jarring of the firearm or accidentally snagging the bolt on a branch while in the field, the “Inertia Plus

System™” corrects itself, automatically returning the bolt to full lock up with the battery. The firearm remains ready for action and ready to fire without any intervention on the part of the operator.  The Inertia Plus System has been called “the first affordable, obvious, and substantial improvement to the Bruno Civolani action in 50 years”

The Antalya SS  features an innovative two piece receiver design that mounts a steel chamber inside of the aircraft aluminum receiver making use of an alloy shroud to visually meld the two parts into one seamless receiver.  The remarkable receiver is milled from a billet of aircraft aluminum and features decorative accents including some premium incarnations with traditional scroll engraving and high grade walnut. The Antalya SS features RETAY’s patented quick release trigger group with a newly designed shape specifically crafted to make loading easy. Additionally, the Antalya SS features a proprietary design that allows for the magazine tube to be emptied without the need to rack the action of the shotgun to eject shells; RETAY calls this system “Easy Unload ™” The Antalya SS will come from the factory ready to cycle an array of hunting and target loads but will be specially tuned to effectively cycle the lighter variety of upland game and specialty target loads.
