“Born out of a requirement for Military and L.E. demands worldwide, Arsenal, Inc is proud to introduce its latest model for the U.S. civilian market: The SGL12-02, and 03 chambered for 12 gauge 3” rounds.” Did someone forget to mention that this is the Mikhail T. Kalashnikov-designed Russian shotgun, produced at the Izhmash factory, and “refined” by Legion for Arsenal Inc (Viva Las Vegas)? That the old name was a Saiga 12? Never mind. Carry on . . .

Featuring the redesigned, ergonomic, RPK style forend, a true AK style steel retainer (with left side sling loop), and an indexed four-sided picatinny rail machined out of aircraft grade aluminum (available only on the SGL12-03) this shotgun will meet the requirements of virtually any situation demanded by it.

What if I demand that it be attractive? Or really reliable. Nope. ‘Cause that would cost real money.

With the newly designed RPK style lower handguard that gives the SGL12 an ergonomic and tactical feel, this shotgun puts style and comfort in the shooters hand while keeping the cost down. This handguard is a U.S. made, military grade composite that also counts as 1 (one) U.S. Sec 922 (r) compliance part.

As in the only one.

The steel, AK style, retainer adds functionality and practicality because of the ability to add an AK style sling and Arsenal’s own indexed Quad rail machined from aircraft grade aluminum. This newly designed steel retainer allows for the proper placement of Arsenal’s lower handguard while providing the proper spacing and alignment for the Quad rail. The Quad rail is machined from aircraft grade aluminum and has been specifically designed to sit centered on the “X” and the “Y” axis in relation to the center of the chrome lined barrel. This precision alignment allows for the proper placement and use of many different types of accessories, such as lasers, lights and forward grips.

All joking aside, I’ve seen one of these tidied-up and tricked out with a billion round mag and all the optical toys. It’s a mean mo’ fo’.

These three features combined truly set this shotgun apart from anything else in its field. By adding them to one of the hottest shotguns in the market it makes for one of the most exciting shotgun releases in years. With an MSRP starting out at $499.00 Arsenal’s SGL12 are a must have for the hunting, sporting, and self defense purposes.

  1. "This handguard is a U.S. made, military grade composite that also counts as 1 (one) U.S. Sec 922 (r) compliance part.

    As in the only one."

    And anyone who is interested in 922 compliance was going to replace that part with a US made folder anyway, once they replaced enough other 922 parts to do so, of course.

    Wake me up when the AA12 becomes semi-auto and civvie legal.
