In 2011, we introduced the KSG and completely changed the world of tactical, pump-action shotguns. Pick your favorite variant or collect them all… we won’t blame you. All of our shotguns are chambered for 3″ shells and fire a wide variety of projectiles. The dual tubes feature a selector switch that we affectionately call, the world’s fastest reload. We should also mention that they’re all downward-ejecting and completely ambidextrous.
This Ain’t Your Grandpa’s Shotgun
FeaturesLIKE NO OTHER
You get extra capacity and standard velocity in a shotgun that measures from slightly shorter to drastically shorter in length than most tactical shotguns on the market. This is the advantage of the bullpup design that we love so much. We changed it up a bit though, our bullpup shotguns load and eject from the bottom and that’s how you spell ambidextrous.
For well over a hundred years, pump-action shotguns have stood the test of time because of their proven reliability. Eliminating variables such as gas systems is particularly important when dealing with the vast variety of shotgun loads on the market. Pump-action puts the reliability in the hands of the user.
Short in appearance and feel, the KSG hides its stout capacity and versatility very well. Boasting not one, but two magazine tubes that hold an incredible amount of shells, this pump-action 12ga gives you lots of options. The manual selector lever allows for either the world’s fastest reload, or ammunition change on the fly.
The one that started it all. The KSG was our first entry into the 12ga shotgun market, so naturally we had to completely redefine it by setting a new standard in both magazine capacity and overall length. Here’s the short and not-so-long of it: Legal in all 50 states, the KSG holds 6+6+1 (or 7+7+1 depending on shell length) in a 26.1” package. That’s not a typo- it holds a lot of ammo at just over two feet long. It comes standard with an 18.5″ barrel and Picatinny-style rails for mounting your favorite accessories on both the top and bottom.MSRP: $770
7+7 (2 3/4” shells)
Originally designed for our European friends, the KSG25 is the 12ga shotgun equivalent of Godzilla, only slightly smaller. And yes, we ship them domestically. Like all of our shotguns, the KSG25 is chambered for 3” shells, however this variant boasts an impressive 10+10+1 or 12+12+1 capacity, depending on shell size. Yet even with all of that capacity and a 30.5” barrel, the KSG25 is still shorter than most tactical shotguns that hold a fraction of the firepower. It comes out of the box as you see it, ready to head to the range. By the way, those are M-LOK slots along the heat shield for mounting lights, lasers… or any other accessory that is M-LOK-able (that’s a word, right?).MSRP: $1080
12+12 (2 3/4” shells)
For class 3 dealers and those willing to buy a tax stamp, the KSG Tactical is the coolest 12ga short-barrel shotgun on the market. Technically it’s an SBS, however it features a 13.7″ barrel and dual magazine tubes packed into a 21.5″ overall length.It holds 4+4+1 or 5+5+1 depending on shell size. The foregrip is molded into the forend and houses a 420 lumen KelTec light with momentary switch. Like the other KSG variants, the muzzle is threaded for a choke adapter or breacher comp and comes standard with a Picatinny style top rail for mounting an optic.MSRP: $1100
5+5 (2 3/4” shells)
Sure, fill out the short-barrel shotgun paperwork… and then take this lil’ guy home while you wait for that tax stamp to come in. Or, just leave the 18.5″ barrel alone and enjoy all the benefits of an SBS without the fuss. It still holds 4+4+1 or 5+5+1 of 12ga depending on your choice of shell size. It’s compact, features a built-in foregrip that houses a 450 lumen KeltTec light with momentary switch and Picatinny style rail up top for mounting your favorite optic.MSRP: $830 – $930
4+4 (3” shells)
