Rewriting the Rules. Established in 1991, Kel-Tec is a privately owned U.S. firearms manufacturer located in Cocoa, Florida. The owner and chief engineer, George Kellgren, is a Swedish born designer who created numerous firearms over the past several decades for companies like Husqvarna, Swedish Interdynamics, Intratec and Grendel before founding Kel-Tec. According to the BATF, Kel-Tec is the third largest producer of handguns in the United States.

The KSG is a revolutionary high capacity pump action shotgun with an amazingly short overall length of only 26.1 inches. By comparison, under 26.0 inches would be classified Class 3 and competing home defense shotguns like the Benelli Nova Tactical measure in at around 45- inches.

While stockless shotguns like pistol grip only models bring the overall length back on par with a KSG, the Kel-Tec has a buttstock that is actually capable of being shoulder mounted and fired. This brings a distinct accuracy and control advantage to any deadly confrontation because it's possible to miss an intruder while firing from the hip.

At the heart of the KSG's design is a glass reinforced polymer bullpup stock whose compact dimensions make it a real game changer for home defense work. With traditional tactical shotguns, close quarter battle situations can get tricky, especially if the bad guy happened to be hiding around a corner and grabs the forend of your shotgun as you pass through a doorway.

The advantage of the KSG's compact design is it allows you to effectively "pie" around a corner (cutting off slices of the visual angle by gradually rotating around a wall) without having to expose or lower your muzzle, keeping the shotgun secure, shouldered and ready to fire.

Tow independent 6- round magazine tubes are arranged in a side-by-side configuration that sit directly underneath the barrel. In fact, at a quick glance from the front and it almost appears the KSG is a triple barrel shotgun.

Just to be clear, everything about the shotgun is manually controlled -- from feeding to switching over to the opposite magazine tube. Once the first tube runs dry, the shooter must engage the magazine selector switch (located at the rear of the receiver) to fire the next 6- rounds.

In addition to being a fifteen round capacity shotgun (6+6+1 in the chamber), it's also extremely versatile weapon as well. A shooter can load one magazine tube with buckshot and the other with slugs, then switch back and forth simply by rotating the magazine selector switch. It's almost like having two shotguns in one.

Both loading and ejection take place at the bottom rear portion of the receiver, which make the KSG a truly ambidextrous shotgun. The safety catch is located behind the trigger at the top of the pistol grip and can be easily depressed by either shooting hand.

Similarly, the forend release ("action bar lock") is located directly in front of the trigger guard and again can be quickly operated by either hand. The molded pistol grip feels comfortable and the square pattern texturing provides positive traction.

The forend moves effortlessly and only travels 4.1" when pumped. The outside of the forend is also molded with raised squares and provides a comfortable gripping surface.

Due to its natural shape, the forend cycles naturally without the use of a forward pistol grip. However, a Picatinny accessory rail is included on the forend for attaching additional equipment such as lights or even a Magpul angled foregrip.

At this time, it is not advisable to attach a vertical style foregrip. In addition, a top mounted, full length optics rail sits on top of the barrel for mounting optics or sights. While no iron sights or front bead are included, most detachable style AR-15 flip- up style sights will work well on the Kel- Tec KSG.

The gun weighs in at 6.9 lbs. and is outfitted with an 18.5" fixed cylinder bore barrel. Each tube can be loaded with either seven 2-3/4" shells, or six 3" shells. The magazine selector switch has three positions.

While set to the center position, it blocks both tubes from being used and the gun is effectively a single shot. While set to the right, it only allows just the right tube to be fired or loaded, and vice versa when set to the left side. The Kel-Tec KSG's receiver is made from hardened steel, which includes the magazines tubes that are welded into place.

For disassembly, the two stock pins easily push out which separate the grip assembly from the receiver The barrel and pump assembly can be removed by loosening the two front magazine tube nuts with a coin and sliding the assembly forward.

A molded rubber pad with square texturing sits on the buttstock and provides a secure mounting platform for the shoulder pocket. Overall, the Kel-Tec KSG is the ultimate compact, high capacity, self- defense shotgun ideally suited for close quarters applications.
