Our top 5 gun clones for the budget-minded shooter

Want the good stuff but just can’t justify the cost? We’ve got you covered! In this list we go over our top 5 gun clones for the budget-minded shooter

5. Dominion Arms 1887 (Winchester Model 1887)


Also known as the T2, for the famous scene in Terminator 2 where Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator rode down the streets and dry river bed of Los Angeles on a motor bike while spin-cocking an 1887 with one hand, this shotgun was produced in China and is sold under the Dominion Arms moniker  – basically a Canada Ammo house brand for Norinco firearms.

By most accounts it’s not exactly the best firearm in terms of build quality or function, but it’s still a fun novelty. Chambered for 2-3/4″ shells and with a cut-down 17.5″ barrel and non-restricted status, and a $400 this one is sure to please Terminator fans… just leave the spin-cocking to Skynet machines.
