Hi chaps, as per the title I'm looking at moving my Tanaka 1897 along. It's a gas shell ejector using shells of the same pattern as the PPS shotguns ( the PPS shells are clones of the Tanaka's)

When I received this it was in a non working state, since then all damaged parts have been repaired or replaced with custom machined steel components (I run an engineering workshop).

Repaired/replaced components include. Locking latch, extractor mount (notorious and difficult to repair part) trigger sear and shell control levers.

I have fettled the gun to be as good as possible, and it now runs fairly reliably. I have skirmished it a couple of times at the department and it's fairly potent and with the shell catcher (also custom made) you don't have to worry about losing shells.

​​​​​if you have any questions or offers send me a PM for a fast response.

Cheers, Robin
