Don't have time to search for it right now but I posted PICS and a pretty detailed thread on several KelTec products last year sometime.

The KSG while interesting has what IMO are significant flaws.

Loading/Re-loading is VERY slow..
One must "select" the tube he wishes to load as well as the tube he wishes to shoot from. I see this as a prob.

It is VERY tough to clear the gun if one "short strokes" it, I saw with my own eyes the Boys from KelTec struggling with a jambed gun several times.. Actually having to "leave" a STAGE with a LOADED gun so it could be disassembled and cleared..

Also it is not practical to "top-off" a tube, nor is it to load a single round into the chamber.
The above makes this a less then ideal fighting gun unless your plans include running the gun empty and throwing it on the ground..

I understand these have been "released" but if it's like most everything else from KelTec that has very little meaning. These as well as the RFB, & PMR are allocated items and as such hit the market at a snails pace.. As an example we have had exactly ONE RFB, and 5 PBR's since we opened in Nov..

I would rather have a SAIGA 12, BENELLI M4, or maybe even an 870 then this BullPoop lookin thing... :rofl:

Local shop has one. This shop is known for it's HIGH prices. But they do rent NFA items for the range.

I got an M4, I got a RFB. I just really like the extreme handiness of bullpups.

handled one and talked to the rep at the shot show.

The rep mentioned they did some mods to "eliminate"
short stroking. Who knows

I did like the feel of the action, very smooth almost felt like it had a spring assist both open and closed.
I don't really like pump shotties but I would consider the KSG
