cheaperthandirt.com reports that Kel-Tec has responded to criticisms leveled at their new KSG bullpup 12-gauge shotgun. Make the jump for the ch-ch-ch-changes to the Shot Show star. Notable by its absence: any alterations to the position and operation of the switch the shooter uses to switch from one tube to the other. No word on the $800 question: how well-built will this bad boy be? Kel-Tec still has some ground to cover in its journey to make itself the prime purveyor of go-to guns for personal self-defense. The fact that it’s listening to its critics speaks volumes about its chances . . .
1. Trigger reset. This will be adjusted in the production model so that you can hold the trigger down, pump back and forward, release, and then re-pull the trigger to fire the next round. No worrying about the trigger going dead, and no Pump-firing if you hold the trigger down.
2. Pump lock switch. A new latch button is in the works that will allow the trigger finger to activate the pump lock without reaching in front of the trigger guard, and potentially getting pinched by the pump. Only the KSG in the law enforcement booth had a similar latch button, made out of welded steel, but the production model will be a polymer button pinned to the steel.
3. a removable rail mounted hand-stop will be available (and probably included) to help alleviate fears of sliding your hand too far forward in front of the barrel.
4. indicator holes in the top of the magazine tubes so you can visually see when you have 0, 1, or 2 rounds left in a tube.
