GIRSAN, the proud producer of pistols having Yavuz 16 brand, was established in 1994 in Giresun/TURKEY. And one year later, in 1995, the first and well-known pistol models of Yavuz 16 COMPACT and Yavuz 16 REGARD, have been presented into the market. As the years passed, GIRSAN has made great investments into personnel education and technology, has implemented the latest technological tools of the day, both in the production line and quality control system. As a result, number of the qualified personnel has reached to 200, the number of the pistol models (with different calibers of 7.65 mm, 9 mm, .380 ACP, .40 S&W, .45 Auto and with optional sight, safety and trigger systems) has increased day by day and reached to a level of 50 (including our newest model of polymer handgun, MC28, known for being lightweight, durable and very reliable), annual production capacity has reached to 130.000 pistols. All of the pistols are manufactured and tested according to the NATO Standards, and have successfully passed the complicated tests with zero error. Also we are working on rifle and we have 75.000 rifle production capacity. GIRSAN, like the other well-known brands in gun production, performs Muzzle Production of all the models with COLD FORGED TECHNOLOGY. In this way, by increasing safety and barrel life at one side, undesirable failures on the muzzle such as swelling, crack and warming are prevented at the other side. Additionally, GIRSAN is the proud developer and owner of Cold Forged Polygonal Barrel used by models of MC27E. With this barrel, a pistol having longer barrel life (40.000 firings), increased muzzle velocity, better hit performance and decreased corrosion have been provided to the user. Last but not least, GIRSAN’s R&D ability, combined with design capability of the trained personnel resulted in a Semi-Auto 12 Gauge Shotgun of MC312 in 2012 with a production capacity of 18.000. Three different versions of GIRSAN’s shotguns, named MC312, MC312 Slug, MC3512 (3.5 inch), MC312 Tactical, MC 312 S1 and MC 320 (with different barrel length, magazine capacity, chokes, stock&forend) are now available in the market.
