Republic Arms Musler
The Musler is a series of copies of the Beretta Model RS-202P shotguns, produced in South Africa by Musgrave. The name is a portmanteau of the names of the two enterprises Musgrave and Hausler (the latter was engaged in development). Various sources may refer to this as Musgrave, Musler, and Hausler, although these are technically the same weapon. The Musler shotgun was created (in 1987 - 1989) to complement the Beretta RS-202P, which South African police have used since 1985. The police wanted the replacement weapon to keep the RS202P's overall original design. At the same time, the customer requested changes to the design of the new weapon, the most urgent of which was the possibility of throwing rifle gas and smoke grenades without the use of additional devices on the shotgun. In the design, this is expressed by the fact that the front sight on the barrel and the fastening of the magazine tube are moved back, allowing you to "put on" a grenade on the barrel.
While the original shotguns had wooden furniture, the later ones have the modern black synthetic one. They can also be fitted with folding stocks, like the Beretta RS-202 M1/M2. There are also versions for commercial sales, without the aforementioned changes, structurally similar to the original Beretta.
