View Full Version : RAS-12 Shotgun with Propriatary 12 gauge Ammo

I'm finally glad that someone made a domestic AR style 12 gauge finally. Looks like they used an AR-10 receiver with a 12 gauge upper.....Only thing is that it takes a proprietary round. Might be interesting to see how this goes if it ever makes the civilian market:

Intrepid Tactical Solutions RAS-12
Intrepid had what they are calling the RAS-12 Weapon System which combines their AR-12 upper with an AR-10 receiver to create a 12-gauge tactical shotgun.

This is a piston-operated shotgun with a monolithic carrier group, proprietary RAS-12 bolt, 18.1" barrel, "scorpion" muzzle brake, and 8-round magazine filled with the new RAS-12 ammunition.

This ammunition is designed exclusively for the RAS-12 Weapon System and is the first polymer shot shell designed to stack vertically and run reliably.

At this time, I was told that they were looking at a major manufacturer to produce the rounds, which will be available in lethal, non-lethal, breach, and surveillance capacities.

Cool as the system is, the key of course is the proprietary ammunition, but if that were to be able to be produced at a cost similar to existing ammunition (however unlikely that seems), it could open up a new class of scatterguns.

We may never see this system produced in any large scale, but it is good to know there are those out there still thinking outside the box.

What the heck is surveillance ammo?

IMHO...the ammo is because they have to make it fit...

Great concept though.
