Ever wish you could load an entire box of 12 gauge into a single shotgun? Well now you can, thanks to Kel-Tec‘s new KSG-25. As the name implies, it’s a KSG that holds 25 rounds of 2.75″ shotgun food. Also newly introduced at SHOT Show 2017 was the RDB Survival . . .
This sleek little number is possibly the lightest 5.56 bullpup on the market at just 5lbs even. Unique among bullpups that I’ve seen, the stock actually has a couple inches of length of pull adjustment. As with the standard RDB, it ejects empty brass out the bottom rear, behind the magazine well.
Kel-Tec is in the final prototype stages for the slick brass catcher seen on the black RDB Survival above, too. Squeezing the bottom sides pops it open like a coin purse, and the entire thing snaps on and off super quick and easy.
Metal flip-up sights are included, or the front can be removed to expose 1/2×28 muzzle threads.
Above, at bottom (if that makes sense), is a different flavor of RDB complete with pistol grip, metal handguard, heavier barrel, and optic.
Compared to the standard KSG, the KSG-25 looks like a behemoth. However, it’s still shorter than most typical shotguns and it handles surprisingly well. At least before you go loading a good 2.5 lbs of ammo into it, that is.
Long sight radius? Check.
