I purchased a Kolar Skeet Max because I wanted the highest quality gun to advance my potential in skeet. I chose the American made Kolar because of their reputation for outstanding customer service and their very active support of local gun clubs.

The available choices of semi-custom stock dimensions allow a great fit without aftermarket adjustments. I like the heads up position of the Skeet Max and the adjustable rib allows great versatility in set up.

I’m very pleased with the mechanics of the gun and the quality and craftsmanship are unsurpassed. I’m confident my Kolar will be the one gun for me for a lifetime of enjoyment in shotgun shooting sports.

"The fit and finish is unmatched, and the feel of the gun in your hands and when you mount it is like nothing you’ve ever felt."

I recently purchased a new Kolar Max Skeet two-barrel set, and it is by far the finest instrument I’ve owned for breaking targets. The fit and finish is unmatched, and the feel of the gun in your hands and when you mount it is like nothing you’ve ever felt—and trust me, I’ve owned other guns, and they feel like toys compared to the Kolar. To borrow from Porsche, “Nothing even comes close.”

My scores have improved, and I attribute much of the improvement to Kolar. The weight and swing mechanics are superior. Whatever it takes, get a Max Skeet, and you’ll never look back.”

"I find the High Rib makes it easy for me to see targets, the stock is a perfect fit and the gun balances perfectly."

I purchased the Kolar Maxx Skeet 30” single barrel from Great Lakes Sporting Arms. I had been shooting a Beretta 682 Gold E with Briley Tubes. I find the High Rib makes it easy for me to see targets, the stock is a perfect fit and the gun balances perfectly.

I immediately noticed how smooth it is to swing. My first season shooting the Maxx Skeet I won the 12 gauge Michigan State Skeet Championship becoming the youngest shooter ever to do so at 14. I have been an NSSA All American selection ever since. Great Lakes Sporting Arms was a big help in me making the right choice.

I purchased the Kolar Max Skeet two barrel set from Great Lakes Sporting Arms. I had been shooting a Krieghoff K-80 and decided to make the change based the outstanding reputation, the way the gun fit which was a good as a custom stock.

I immediately noticed being able to acquire targets faster, the balance was superior than the Krieghoff for my shooting style. My averages immediately went up two classes, and I have won three Michigan Skeet State tiles in my class. I would highly recommend Great Lakes Sporting Arms as a dealer, they know the product and put me into the right choice.

"The crisp mechanical trigger is so reliable and consistent it simplifies your game by removing one more variable."

My decision to make the switch to a Kolar Max skeet was initially spurred on by watching the success of several influential shooters. That was enough to peak my interest however it was finally picking one up and shooting it that sold me. The high rib was the easy choice with it's unequaled ability to give you such improved field of view to better see targets and consequently react to them. The balance and point-ability of the gun makes for smooth swings yet allows for quick moves to changing targets. The crisp mechanical trigger is so reliable and consistent it simplifies your game by removing one more variable. Having an adjustable POI allows for precision shot placement without compromising sight picture leading to hard hitting breaks. Lastly is the robust design, feel, and build of the gun which is affirming of its quality. Also Kolar being an American made gun helped to influence my decision because of the responsiveness and customer service.

Previous to getting my Kolar Max Skeet 2 Barrel set I used to shoot a customized Remington 1100 for my 12ga and doubles gun and I Browning citori 425 with briley tubes for the sub gauges. Moving to the 2 barrel set allowed me to simplify my game by moving to one gun for all gauges.

I have seen gains in consistency to my game since moving to my Kolar gun. While there is undoubtedly a learning curve when moving to a high rib gun, once I became comfortable with it I was witness to some remarkable averages .9913 in the 12, .9920 in the 20, and .9800 in the 28. My 12ga average was even good enough to make 3rd on the triple sub high averages list. I was also able to capture the doubles title at the Canadian Open Championships in Ottawa. This was still within my first year of acquiring the Max Skeet.

Since I began shooting a Kolar not only have I recommended it to many others I shoot with, they have gone out and purchased one for themselves, including my dad. Currently one of my shooting partners is finalizing what options he would like on his Kolar for when he places his order. I have also answered many question for shooters who are interested in a Kolar. I thoroughly endorse the Kolar max skeet as one of the best clay target guns ever made.

"We decided to purchase from Kolar because the guns have beautiful quality craftsmanship, are impeccably designed specifically for skeet shooting and are very accurate, durable and reliable."

Our 12 year old twin boys, James and John, began shooting skeet competitively in March 2012 when they were 10 years old. During this time, they started off with low end Stoeger STF 3000 20 Gauge youth model guns and after a short period of time they began having gun malfunctions with the firing pins. After the boys placed 1st in the Rookie division for the Michigan SCTP State Shoot and 3rd place at the SCTP Nationals in Sparta, Illinois in both Skeet and Sporting Clays, we decided they earned the privilege to shoot reliable skeet guns. We upgraded their guns to a gently used Browning SX Skeet and a Remington 3200 and were dismayed when shortly after March 2013 when the shooting season began in Michigan, they both began experiencing various gun malfunctions. By May we finally had enough and started doing our research. We talked to a lot of fellow shooters who praised Kolar. We decided to go to Great Lakes Sporting Arms and invest in two Kolar MAX Skeet guns.

We decided to purchase from Kolar because the guns have beautiful quality craftsmanship, are impeccably designed specifically for skeet shooting and are very accurate, durable and reliable. They have the adjustable high ribbed barrel, adjustable comb, ease of cleaning and switching the trigger assembly. We knew these guns would last the boys their entire shooting career and we would not have to worry.

The benefits we have seen since the boys started shooting their Kolar MAX Skeet guns are the confidence they have they know when they pull the trigger that their guns will fire and they are very accurate. The boys are extremely proud to shoot Kolar guns and are very protective of them.

We would recommend Kolar to others because the guns are absolutely amazing, we have not had a single issue with either of the two guns malfunctioning. Kolar also has exceptional customer service which we can attest to. One of the boys had bent the extractor on one of the 20 gauge tubes. We learned the barrel and tube would need to be sent into Kolar for repair. We could not believe Kolar had the repairs completed and the gun back to us in less than a week, just in time for the next registered shoot. We could not have been happier with the level of customer service we received.

"Being manufactured in the U.S.A. is another reason for my purchase decision and the fact that the owner of Kolar and the staff there are reachable in the event I should ever have any issues."

I wish to extend my sincere gratitude for your help in my selection of a new skeet firearm. Once we had shot and viewed the selection of Kolar guns your brought to the Detroit Gun Club there was only the decision of which model to take. With your help I acquired the new Kolar Max Skeet carrier version.The adjustable high rib is an excellent choice and it really helps with those difficult high 2and low 6 birds.

Being manufactured in the U.S.A. is another reason for my purchase decision and the fact that the owner of Kolar and the staff there are reachable in the event I should ever have any issues. The trigger on the Max Skeet is excellent and the balance is superb. I had been shooting a Browning XS Special high post prior to the Kolar and there is no comparison, even though the Browning is a fine firearm the Kolar is miles ahead in every aspect.

Since my purchase,another member of our club Mr. Rich Nelson was so impressed with my new gun he ordered one just like it and has enjoyed it from the second it arrived.

What was the determining factor in selecting Kolar? Fit, weight, quality, and reputation

What were you shooting before? Beretta 682 Gold E with Briley tubes

What benefits did you realize after your switch? Three would be good.

1. Excellent target acquisition and visibility throughout the swing

2. Excellent weight and balance has led to a more consistent swing

3. Great gun fit and “head up” position with the high rib

4. Chicks dig a guy who shoots a Kolar (just kidding…but its true!)


Would you recommend a Kolar to others?

Absolutely. I feel it is the best competition gun on the market today and has helped take my game to the next level.
