Kel-Tec made a huge splash a few years ago with the SHOT Show introduction of the KSG, a bullpup shotgun with dual magazine tubes and an outstanding 13-round capacity. Its popularity lead to countless other bullpup-style shotguns.
Often imitated but never duplicated, I think we all wondered how Kel-Tec could possibly top that one. Well, now we have an answer. Enter the updated pump-action KSG-25.
The 25 in KSG-25 is due to the fact that it holds 25 rounds of 12 gauge. Full-size shells. An entire box. And if you load up with Augula Mini Shells, you get a capacity of 40+1. This is pretty insane to contemplate, no matter the size of the gun.
It would be easy to dismiss this gun as novelty. I’m not even much of a shotgun guy, so I wanted to hate it. But when you pick it up and really consider the way it handles, it is a pretty badass piece of gear. Pretty much ends my argument against shotguns as being to slow to reload in a home defense gun.
If you can’t solve it with 41 rounds of buckshot, you probably need something belt fed and friends. This thing is like a hand held Claymore. The Kel-Tec fans are going to love it, the haters are going to tell us it’s impractical, and Kel-Tec’s competition in the shotgun industry is going to try and copy it as fast as they can. Another big innovation from Kel Tec, this one is sure to be a hit.
