See that? That’s not a short-barrel shotgun — despite the SBS reference in Black Aces Tactical’s press release (after the jump).. It is what the ATF calls “a firearm.” As such, you can buy Black Aces’ SB-Tactical brace-equipped. 10-round, 12-guage modified Mossberg shotgun without an NFA stamp and take it home. Period. Black Aces’ owner, operator and self-professed stress monster Eric Lamoine will sell it to you, complete with ATF authorization letter, for $1179 to $2000 (fully-equipped). If you want the “ultimate” example . . .
You can fit any of the Black Aces Tactical DT firearms with a SilencerCo Salvo silencer (as above). In that case, yes, you have to get an NFA stamp for the suppressor, with all the paperwork and delay that entails. If you want to launch the gun with the Salvo, you’ll have to remove that cone thing at the tip, but don’t worry: it’s merely an aesthetics affectation.
TTAG’s getting a Black Aces Tactical Firearm for T&E sometime in the next month, along with a bunch of extra mags (bespoke $45 a pop). Watch this space.
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Black Aces Tactical (BAT), an American manufacturer of exclusive custom shotguns, is proud to announce the release of the brand’s new breacher tip for the patented DT, DTS, and DTRS short barrel shotguns. The breacher tip option will be officially unveiled to the public for the first time at BAT’s booth #619 at the NRA-sponsored Great American Outdoor Show, which runs from Feb. 6-14 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Riding on the recent success of the company’s groundbreaking short barrel 12-guage featuring an 8.5″ barrel, SIG SB15 brace, 27″ OAL, forward grip, 10-round stick magazine, and optional folding brace, the breacher tips are an important addition to BAT’s non-NFA/non-AOW product line.
“Our customers have mainly asked for three options in our short barrels,” said Eric Lemoine, owner and CEO of BAT. “They want the breacher tip, the ability to install a choke, and the ability to use a suppressor. We’ve accomplished all of these in one sleek, compact package.”
The breacher ends are made of the highest quality steel, and are threaded in a standard Win Choke pattern. This not only means that the breacher can be removed and installed with ease, but that the short barrel DT lineup is suppressor-ready using the Silencerco Salvo 12 adapter (sold separately.)
The DT lineup is the highest quality short barrel available on the market, as it is not cut and welded. Each integral component associated with shortening the barrel is done with billet materials, with tolerances down to 1/1000th of an inch. The barrel clamp features a locking taper design that retains the OEM appearance and OEM takedown screw. The action block is machined on five sides to allow the Black Aces Tactical hand grip to be able to be located left, right or center of the two 45 degree locations.
The addition of the SB15 SIG brace takes the DT Model above and beyond standard AOW 12-gauges. The proper use of the SB15 brace transforms a 12-gauge from wayward and difficult to control to stabilized and precise.
The standard DT Model with fixed SIG brace starts at $1,179 and costs $2,000 fully equipped with every option. The DT models come in a top quality MIL-A-8625 Type 3 hardcoat, and can be upgraded to a variety of Cerakote color options. The Win Choke option adds $175, and can be added to the DT, DTR and DTRS.
The DT product line does not require any stamps, nor are the weapons considered short barreled shotguns under the NFA or AOW. They are classified strictly as a “firearm,” which means a customer can purchase them from the dealer without months of wait time. In fact, the weapons include all associated ATF letters, as well as a copy of 27 cfr 479.11, page 89 outlining the method of obtaining overall length.
