Kel-Tec’s Sub-2000 carbine is a hit. The inexpensive folding rifle takes standard handgun magazines, shooting bullets with increased velocity and accuracy and minimal recoil. It’s the single best argument against a home defense shotgun for shooters scared shitless by a hand-held cannon (cough women cough). And now Kel-Tec re-re-invents the shotgun. cheaperthandirt.com charts the strange ch-ch-ch-changes . . .
“The shotgun bears a stunning resemblance to the South African designed Neostead pump action scattergun. The operator is able to move a switch located near the top of the grip to select the right or left tube, or move the switch to the center to eject a shell without chambering another round. The bull-pup design results in an overall length of only 26″ with an 18.5″ barrel while the bottom eject design makes the firearm truly ambidextrous.”
The best part?
The incredibly short overall length makes it more nimble than a sawed off shotgun, and with a 14+1 capacity you don’t sacrifice ammunition capacity to get a shotty in a small package.
Ammunition capacity is 14+1 with 2 3/4″ shells. The KSG is shown with a factory installed Picatinny rail with flip up sights and a pistol grip. MSRP is not known at the moment, nor is there an expected date of availability.
