Get rid of the magazine selector lever. Have the gate between mag tubes alternate back and forth between mag tubes each time it is cycled. That takes away the extra movement of manually switching mag tubes, especially under stress. I would also put the safety on top like Mossberg does.

On the other hand, having two separate mag tubes could permit intentional selection of either slugs OR buck, depending on tactical situation. But of course i've not used the weapon, so i can't say, not knowing.

I like bpd3733 suggestion but it would complicate the function and introduce an unnecessary mechanism that could fail. Aimfire makes a great point implementing an ammo select option. Blow door hinges
one minute and pierce heavy material the next. This gun is next on the list for me and will be loaded in the afforementioned manner.

Also, the mag selector makes it civilian legal in California, as it's considered two 7to round magazines, rather than one 14of round magazine.

Even though I have yet to handle or shoot this weapon I cannot see a downside to it. Like the others, I would carry buck in one tube and slug or buck and ball in the other for door breaching etc. For SWAT teams it is fantastic as you not only have a shorter firearm the Shotgun man can easily go from buck to door breaching or slug to penatrate walls without changing weapons. Can't wait until I get mine.

The lower rail of the forend where a foregrip is recommended is PLASTIC unlike the upper rail which is metal. Within the first 10 shots using a sig sauer stoplight foregrip, the lower rail shattered, fragmented, and broke off. Very very disappointed. Otherwise, the gun shoots great.

Does anyone know if LAPD has the KSG shotgun, or any other police force(s) that utilizes the KSG? Thank you.
