Armscor Philippines M-30

Notes: The M-30 is a series of pump-action tactical shotguns. They were designed primarily for use in jungle close-quarters fighting, with a secondary role of CQB in general. The M-30 series is designed to be basically indestructible under normal circumstances, require little maintenance, yet be able to be able to be used as a club or makeshift hammer without damaging the weapon. All are weapons of simple construction with no real frills.

The stocks of the M-30 series are of weatherproofed wood or polymer (depending upon the model); polymer-stocked versions have a Speedfeed stock which can hold four extra rounds of ammunition (unless the shotgun in question is a Bolo model). Metalwork is largely Parkerized steel. The barrels are cylinder-bored and either 18.5 or 20 inches, depending upon the model. All are fed by an underbarrel tubular magazine. All are able to use 2.75" or 3" shells.

There are several different versions available. The M-30R6 uses a 5-round magazine and a wood stock, and has an 18.5-inch barrel. The M-30R8 has a 7-round magazine, a wood stock, and a 20-inch barrel. The M-30SAS is military-grade shotgun (the M-30R6 and M-30R8 are sold to civilians, while the M-30SAS is not), with a polymer Speedfeed stock, a ventilated heat shield above the barrel, a bayonet lug, a 7-round magazine, a rail above the receiver able to mount most optics or accessories available in the Pacific Rim, and a 20-inch barrel.

The M-30 Bolo is a special version of the M-30; this version is a short "whippit" style weapon with no stock, a knob-type bolo grip, and a short 14-inch barrel. Most Bolos are built with wood furniture, but some so exist with polymer stocks. The M-30BG is basically a stockless 18.5-inch barrel version, with a pistol grip and polymer furniture, designed primarily for police use. The M-30FS is basically similar, but has a top-folding stock.

The M-30DI/C is a civilian hunting and sporting version; it has native Filipino wood furniture, a butt with a thick recoil pad, and metalwork with either a blued or Parkerized finish. It is available with either a 26 or 28-inch barrel; these barrels have screw-in interchangeable chokes of Improved Cylinder, Modified, or Full Choke, with a natural choke of Cylinder. The M-30DG8 is another civilian variant, designed for both self-defense and sporting purposes; the 18.5-inch barrel is strengthened to allow the use of steel shot as well as saboted slugs. Furniture is of wood, and the gun has a ramp front sight as well as an adjustable rear leaf sight. Metalwork is blued or Parkerized.

Bentley Model 30

Notes: The Philippines doesnít have a large arms industry (and most of it is devoted to license-producing other countriesí designs), but one of its better home-grown products is the Bentley 30 shotgun. It is a utilitarian design, simple in construction and care, but producing results on par with shotguns by manufacturers such as Remington and Ithaca. There are three versions: The Model 30 Standard uses a 26, 28, or 30-inch barrel; the Model 30 Skeet uses a 24-inch barrel with what the company calls a "Skeet Choke," meant to produce the optimum shot pattern for clay pigeons and skeet ranges; and the Model 30 Riot, which is used by several police departments in the Far East and has a 20-inch barrel with extra chroming to make the barrel able to better withstand the repeated firing of slugs and riot ammunition such as beanbags or batons.
