RETAY ARMS all new 20ga chambered Masai Mara shotgun is now available in the USA!

The long awaited 20ga version of RETAY’s popular Masai Mara semi automatic inertia shotgun is now available to US consumers!

Easton Maryland, January 8, 2020 - RETAY ARMS LTD. STI. of Konya Turkey announces that the latest incarnation of its wildly successful Masai Mara Shotgun is now available at select retailers in the USA though RETAY USA !

The 20ga Masai Mara will be a fully featured scaled down clone of its 12ga siblings.

The Masai Mara is a technological achievement in that it offers a fully two part receiver with an alloy lower and steel upper receiver that integrates a precision drilled and honed barrel as a single piece. This configuration coupled with Retay’s patented push-button removable trigger group offers the user an unsurpassed ease of breakdown for cleaning and service.

The 20ga Masai Mara will be available in both walnut and synthetic models including models specialized for waterfowl hunting, upland game hunting.

A limited release in a Turkey hunting configuration featuring a 22” barrel, picatinny rail mount and stiff high performance recoil buffer springs will also be available this Spring.

The small frame Masai Mara 20ga will offer lightweight at just 6lbs 5oz ( ¾ of a pound less than its 12ga 3.5 sibling ) coupled with the excellent performance and balance that has made the 12ga version one of the most sought after shotguns in the US market today.

RETAY’s popular Masai Mara shotgun line up are designed to be lightweight high performance semi-automatics with a stock based inertia powered action, based on the original design by Bruno Civolani. All Masai Mara’s including the new 20ga will feature RETAY’s patented “Inertia Plus ™'' floating bolt 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 shotguns 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 accidently 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”


Until now, the Masai Mara line had been available only chambered for 12ga in both a 2 ¾” - 3” and 12ga 3.5” versions. Now hunters and shooters across the United States will have the option of purchasing a fully featured 20ga with a scaled down 2 - ¾ to 3” chambered version as well.

The familiar flowing lines of the 20ga chambered Masai Mara make it a visually smaller scaled clone of its larger 12ga siblings. Like its larger 12ga siblings, it is packed with all the same features Masai Mara shooters have come to know and love like the quick removable trigger group, easy unload and removable ejector. All these features will be packed into a package that has been scaled down. From the receiver to the stock and forend every aspect of the Masai Mara 20ga has been reduced in size to make it more nimble in the hands and lighter weight to carry.

The new Masai Mara 20ga is available in all the same finishes offered in the 12ga 3” version including Walnut models with polished barrels and an array of receiver coatings, including Cerakote and color anodizing. Synthetic stocked models will be offered in matte black and popular camouflage patterns including Max-5 and Timber patterns from RealTree and the New Bottomland and Shadow Grass Habitat and Obsession patterns from MossyOak.

The 20ga is available with 26” and 28” barrels, however limited special editions including a 20ga version of the popular “Turkey XT” will be available this Spring. The Masai Mara 20ga models will be priced the same as their 12ga 3” counterparts with MSRPs ranging from $1099 - $1299 based on options. Learn more at www.retayusa.com
