Remington's innovative R12P Tactical shotgun, which will be available later this year, is the law enforcement version of its Versa Max shotgun. The self-regulating, dual-pistol VersaPort gas system allows the semi-auto shotgun to handle any length of shell you can pull from your go bag. Remington has begun offering initial builds of the R12P to law enforcement customers, and will release the gun in the fourth quarter. The gun was introduced at SHOT Show in January. It will retail for about $1,100. View a video of the shotgun here.

One of the newest manufacturers of 1911s, Remington is actually an old hand at making these pistols. Recently, I had the chance to field test a preproduction Remington R1 1911.
