The NFA skirting Tac-14 is a hit! So much so that Remington’s having another go. The newest member of the F-off ATF club: the Tac-14 DM, as in detachable magazine.
With a six round magazine, a Raptor pistol grip and Magpul fore-end the Remington Tac-14 DM is well equipped right out of the box. The 14″ barrel has a fixed choke, topped with a fix bead sight. (A rail for mounting a red dot would have been a welcome feature, aiming a shotgun is a lot harder without a stock.)
Why buy a Tac-14 DM or Mossberg’s inevitable competitor? Because you can. And because they’re cool.
In a real world home defense situation I’d want a stock on a shotgun. I can see the Tac-14 DM being a fun range toy. Yes but — at an MSRP of $559 it’s an expensive range toy.
The Remington booth at SHOT Show was massive. They had a really cool timed simulator to let visitors test how fast they can change a magazine and unload a fresh one at a target. I unfortunately did not have enough time to give it a try. I guess I will have to get a TAC-14 DM and try with live ammo. Stay tuned.
