Escort Raider Shotgun

The Escort Raider is one of the shotguns introduced this year by Turkish manufacturer Hatsan Arms Company. Much like the Diamond SWAT 12 shotgun I previously discussed, the new Raider is a box magazine fed, semi-automatic scattergun. Unlike the Diamond-manufactured gun, Escort firearms are already imported into the United States by Legacy Sports, so I […]

Diamond SWAT 12 Shotgun

Turkish manufacturer Matsan A.S. showed off the new Diamond SWAT 12 shotgun at the IWA Outdoor Classics exposition in Germany. Quite a few Turkish shotguns come into the US market through various distributors, and in some cases, branded with a US manufacturer’s name. So, I suspect that we will see these in this country – […]

Beretta 1301 Tactical Shotgun

The Beretta 1301 Tactical shotgun looks like a reality.  The 1301 Tactical is a 12 gauge semi-automatic shotgun based on the 1301 Competition gun.  It uses a gas operating system that Beretta claims has 36% faster cycling than other brands.

Versa Max Zombie Slayer Shotgun

Had enough of the zombies?  Not yet, I guess, considering The Walking Dead seems to be one of the most popular shows on TV.  Fortunately, Remington introduced the Versa Max Zombie shotgun to help quench the thirst for zombie-related gun gear. The Versa Max is Remington’s newest autoloading shotgun, and in the past couple of […]

Remington 870 Shotgun with Magpul Tactical Accessories

In 2012, Magpul announced a line of shotgun accessories, and one year later Remington announced an 870 Express Tactical shotgun with those fixtures as standard features.  The new Remington 870 uses a Magnum SGA buttstock and a MOR fore-end. The Remington 870 shotgun is extremely popular for self-defense and police work.  I’d venture to say […]

Updated Mossberg SA-20 Autoloader Shotgun

The newly updated Mossberg SA-20 Field/Tactical autoloader is a 20 gauge shotgun with a 20″ barrel, synthetic stock and a variety of features that might make it a good home defense gun for you.  With the updated version shown at the 2013 SHOT Show, I immediately saw the gun’s home defense potential for a variety of reasons, […]

[…]

New Saiga-12 Shotgun

Izhmash announced the development of a new Saiga-12 shotgun variant for practical shooting competition.  Saiga-12 fans will likely notice a few differences just from the photo: My Russian is not very good, but from what I was able to determine, the new Saiga-12 sports several new features, including: long Picatinny rail on top of the […]

Blackhawk Knoxx Stock: Gen II SpecOps

[Ed. note: The information on the current generation of Knoxx Stock, the Blackhawk! Gen II SpecOps, was previously submitted during the 2012 SHOT Show.  For whatever reason, I failed to get it posted properly. Better late than never, right?] The Blackhawk booth at SHOT Show this year was a little more subdued than in previous […]

Diamondback RTS Shotgun

We found the Diamondback RTS shotgun at the 2012 SHOT Show.  It is a working prototype right now, but Diamondback hopes to have them shipping sooner rather than later.  We’ll keep you updated.  (Update 11/13/2012 – The latest on the production of the Diamondback shotgun is at the bottom of the article.)
