We got this thing about a month ago. Sadly I can't shoot anything but buckshot or slugs at my own range due to bounce back (getting a face full of shot is not fun).
Video overview.

The more I shoot this shotgun the less I think it is crap.. It feels a little crunchy and spongy at first but has been smoothing up quickly.
Not a ton of wear on any of the parts, comparing it to the Vepr-12, the vepr-12 is still better.. Most of the JTS parts appear to be billet milled which is generally the better way to make them so no complaints there.

The shotgun is not nearly as weirdly setup as the Fury series of shotguns. On a scale of 1-10 with one being a smoking turd of a gun that never works, and 10 being a perfect out of the box vepr-12 the JTS is easily a 7, a saiga-12 that has been back end converted is an 8, the fury is more like a 4.. I have not owned a DDI-12 so I can't compare that one.

There are odd aspects about the shotgun. The receiver is longer than an AK receiver, the stock is not standard to anything else. The front grips are not standard.
The magazine well does not really take Saiga magazines all that well and even the factory magazines are kinda slow to get inserted. We made special mag and I'm going to go ahead and order in the parts to make about 300-500 just to test the waters.

Here are a couple firing demos with our test magazine.

Just wanted to update that we made a batch of magazines made just for this shotgun. They fit a lot better than saiga magazines and get a lot better lock up.

Overall either the JTS-12 or the EM-12B seem to be pretty decently made.. I prefer the EM-12B because it basically corrects all of the grumbles I had with the JTS.
