Kel-Tec will release the pump-action KSG (Kel-Tec Shotgun) that features dual magazine tubes that can accomodate 14 rounds, the company announced.
The weapon is similar to the currently available Kel-Tec RFB rifle. As one difference, the KSG ejects casings downward rather than forward. The KSG weighs 6.9 pounds and is as compact as legally possible with a 26.1-inch overall length and an 18.5-inch cylinder bore barrel.
The internal dual tube magazines hold 14 rounds of 12 gauge 2-3/4-inch shotshells (7 per tube). The pump action feeds from either the left or right tube.
The feed side is manually selected by a lever located behind the trigger guard. The lever can be positioned in the center detent in order to easily clear the chamber without feeding another round from either magazine. A cross bolt-style safety blocks the sear, and the pump-release lever is located in front of the trigger guard.
The pump includes an under-Picatinny rail for the mounting of a forward grip, light or laser. The included top Picatinny sight rail will accept many types of optics or iron sights. Forward and rear sling loops are built in, and a basic sling is included. The soft rubber butt pad helps to tame recoil.
The weapon is expected to retail for about $800.
