The Masai Mara is an Inertia Action shotgun that features dynamic styling and is the platform for a host of innovative proprietary features that RETAY ARMS believes set the Masai Mara apart and above competitive products in the sporting shotgun space.
At just over 6.5LBS the Masai Mara is one of the lightest shotguns on the market today. The new semi-automatic shotgun is available in 15 versions that offer various finishing combinations including luxury options with oiled Walnut, as well as camouflage and black synthetic options.
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 accidentally
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
The Masai Mara features a two-piece receiver design. The
remarkably beautiful receiver is milled from a billet of aircraft
Aluminum and features decorative angular accent surfaces cut and shaved
away to give the Masai Mara exterior surface lines that are reminiscent of a
fine sports car.
These flowing lines sweep forward seamlessly mating with the barrel
and forearm. The Masai Mara features RETAY’s proprietary MaraBarrel ™
design for superb patterning and reduced muzzle climb. The barrel is
fitted with a traditional low hunting rib that is 8mm wide and tipped
with a TurGlo fiber optic sight for easy target acquisition.
Hunters and sport shooters alike will be delighted by the Masai Mara’s
super thin forend and a pistol grip stock that makes this shotgun dance
in the shooters hands. The 4+1 magazine capacity adds just enough length
to the forend that hand placement is natural and comfortable. The
Masai Mara features an easily removable trigger group housed in a specially
designed fully integrated trigger housing and guard that is milled from
The trigger group features a specially designed shape that gives
smooth access to the loading port that RETAY calls “Easy-Load ™”.
Additionally, Gordion features a proprietary design that allows for the
magazine tube to be emptied without the need to rack the action of the
shotgun to eject shells; RETAY calls this system “Easy Unload ™”
