This from a friend in the Philippines:

“Another lemon here is the USAS-12, a select-fire 12 gauge shotgun from Korea. Damn heavy. Takes either a ten-round box or twenty-round drum. Shows heavy M16 influence, but at twelve pounds (unloaded) it is highlyunattractive. Lots of bank guards have used for intimidation but later switched to Mossbergs or other pumps for actual usability.

Common denominator of all these lemons:

Many folks paid big money for these guns only to find them useless and unsellable. No wonder not too many are in a rush to buy the latest gizmo on the market today. Tried and tested beats high-tech and impractical any day!”
