American Rifleman Named Its Shotgun Version of the Year


KelTec is an American company based in Coco, Florida. It was founded in 1995 by an engineer of Swedish origin George Kellgren.


The KS7 pump-action bullpup created by this company is recognized by American Rifleman magazine as the best shotgun of the year.

The publication is considered one of the most influential weapons magazines in the United States. Each year, its editors select and award the most interesting, in their opinion, small arms weapons.

The magazine decided that the shotgun was compact and very easy to handle. Its mass is 2,7 kilograms. It is suitable for protecting the house and the adjacent area from unwanted guests, since any type of 12-round ammunition can be used in it, including so-called non-lethal ammunition. The high-strength housing made of polymer material is available in black, olive and sand. The shotgun pistol grip is equipped with a push-button fuse. The weapon is equipped with an under-barrel tubular magazine containing six rounds of 12x76 caliber.


Due to its compact size, the shotgun is convenient for firing from a vehicle, according to American authors.

In the US, such a shotgun is sold at retail for $ 495.

Apparently, the convenience for protecting a house and shooting from a car are the most relevant things for weapons from an American point of view. It is also worth noting that the American magazine "forgot" to take into account the shortcomings of the KS7. One of the inconveniences that the shooters with experience in using this shotgun speak of is the following: a shotgun is extremely unsuitable for use by a person who is above average height. "Controls" are placed so that a person has to bend his arms as much as possible to get ready for shooting.

          That IT can just find application in the role of a police weapon, based on what powers and police there are and what methods it has there.

          But this shotgun is perfect for us in terms of shooting weekend at wild cans and bottles after a liter of strong.

            Well yes... "Police special forces went to the bayonet at the protesters"

            Okay, in 1989 the paratroopers in Georgia were accused of having chopped up the “peaceful protesters” MSL ...
            But those, at least the shovel was on staff, and they used them for self-defense for lack of other weapons, so as not to be torn to pieces by the crowd ...

            And in your vision, obviously the police need to introduce bayonets as a standard weapon ...

              Конечно.
              If I had the appropriate lobbying tools in terms of the supply of weapons to their police and the National Guard, I would also include an attached bayonet in the insurance conditions. And then suddenly crack under nigra, which is already half a bullet planted, the barrel grab than deliver traumatized cop. And here - grabbed his bayonet with a stoned hand.

              And even if I had opened an insurance company for this, I would have paid off in a year.

                  The problem contingent in my host state is stopped by the fact of being brought to the police for participating in illegal opposition rallies, in extreme cases, by conscription. This is usually enough.

                  In yours - well, he usually blows up each other or shoots drunk.

                  To mine armored vehicles armed with auxiliary police - well, you are closer than us, but still far away.

          Not for the sake of advertising: I got Saigu 278, it turned out to be a suitable device. It works reliably, it beats well even from open ones, it weighs 28 g, even if it’s not any cartridge. “Vepri”, according to acquaintances, is also quite adequate: peeling is required mainly for fine-tuning for small weights, but this is not relevant for everyone.

            Thanks for the reply.
            I didn’t own it, I don’t presume to discuss the existing anti-advertising about unstable quality.
            There are only 2 comments from Saig and Co. from me:
            1) A box store. He’ll go for a shoot, but hunting is not convenient. Equipping is not convenient. Carrying through the bushes is not convenient. It’s not convenient that you can’t change ammunition on the fly (or carry another 1 store, which means a lot of extra weight).
            2) Weight. Compared to the same Benelli m2 - plus 0,6 kilos. And it becomes significant if you walk with this trunk for a long time on rough terrain.

              Let's just say: in terms of quality assurance, our manufacturers still have something to work on, but, in general, now this is not bad (in the context of the price, of course).

              The comments are reasonable, but, in my opinion, the “Saiga” / “Boar” in its current form is not a weapon for hunting. Sport - yes, home protection - quite; here a lot of weight does not play a role, and the box allows you to charge / recharge faster. For hunting, of course, it is wiser to take a normal hunting weapon like the same MP-155 / "Bekas" from KK / VPO.

                When storing an equipped magazine does the spring not sag?
                The prospect of “starting the horn" in the event of a threat is clearly not a plus.
                While in the "pipe" you can quickly cram cartridges, if necessary.

                  Over time, I think, it will sink, but this problem can be solved organizationally. Let's say:

                  1. Do not fill the store to the end: if serious hostilities are not expected, 4-5 rounds will be enough to scoop some stray adventurers. There are several such incomplete boxes.

                  2. From time to time to transfer cartridges from one store to another.

                  The best option already depends on what threats you expect to face in principle.

                  Well, it depends. Let's say fast charging something like the Mossberg 500 requires skill; in a stressful situation, you can get confused in your fingers (tried at the shooting range). In general, there are pros and cons everywhere.

            Its main disadvantage is that the "Lynx" is no longer released. I once wanted to buy it as the first trunk (I also liked it) - but I did not find it in the normal state.
            Still on powerful hinges, they say, is not intended.

    A shotgun is extremely unsuitable for use by a person with a height above average. "Controls" are placed so that a person has to bend his arms as much as possible to get ready for shooting.

    Is it difficult to extend the butt with any inserts?

                  We played with these lodges, came to the conclusion of garbage ... the trunk on the Mosyans is a bit thin the groups go up very much upside down depending on the temperature of the trunk. Heats up quickly. Replaced the barrel with an American thicker and shorter. From the mosquito only the shutter group remained. The trigger and then from Timney set. And there’s an order of magnitude more from him than from the new lodge.

          Only glue to carbon fiber, or screw, but on the reverse side, inside the butt, a hefty washer, curved along the butt profile, the carbon fiber itself has a nail thickness, or even less, well, if they just do not have a Soviet composite, 2-3 layer of fiberglass, glued with epoxy :-)

    An interesting shotgun solution. As a weapon of self-defense, it will certainly be good, but hardly for hunting.
    It is possible to recharge through the window from the bottom like a conventional shotgun.

      Kel-Tec KSG (Kel-Tec ShotGun) is a shotgun developed by Kel-Tec CNC Industries, known for its innovative and original designs for the civilian market. The Kel-Tec KSG shotgun was first introduced at the 2011 Shot Show in Las Vegas.
      Kel-Tec KSG - a smoothbore gun with a longitudinally sliding forearm (pump-action reloading), built according to the bullpup scheme, the main feature of which is the presence of two parallel-mounted tubular magazines located horizontally under the barrel, each of which holds up to 7 rounds of 12 caliber . Meals are provided only from one of the stores. The supply store is changed by means of a switch located at the bottom of the receiver behind the pistol grip. The extreme positions of the switch are determined by the supplying or equipped magazine, and the central one allows you to discharge the chamber with full magazines, which allows you to quickly change the type of cartridge in the barrel.

      Characteristics
      Length, mm 663
      Barrel length, mm 470
      Width, mm 76
      Height, mm 178
      Cartridge 12/70 or 12/76
      Caliber mm 18,5
      Principles of operation of pump action weapons
      Type of ammunition 14 (7 + 7) rounds of 12/70 caliber
      12 (6 + 6) rounds of 12/76 caliber
      Dioptric removable sight, there is a Picatinny rail for the installation of various sights

      Now they have all the decisions, as far as I follow, they are dancing from "feel like a cool hero of this or that film, in the back of your house, playing there with your new shotgun."

      It is this one that suggests itself as something from the Alien universe with a couple of solutions for a particular state and in a specific amount. State - where it is forbidden to rifle except for a short-barrel and then a revolver and even a certain caliber, and the sum is five hundred bucks, of which 400 for appearance.

        Something you are not tracking, apparently. Remington, Mossberg and all others have quite a classic in catalogs. Of course, without tactical units designed for fans to play with soldiers, it also does not do. We, however, have a similar story: most civilian Kalashoids target a similar audience.

          First of all, a translator of the fire mode, in addition, AK103 provides seats for attaching a 40 mm grenade launcher or bayonet-knife and a side bar for installing optical and night sights.

              The whole point is that you, from some point of view, think that everyone should hold Saigu in his hands. And who, besides you, needs it? There are plenty of trunks on hand, and this is not necessarily Saiga, there are better samples if they have money, of course.

                Judging by your epithets, you haven’t invested even a period of possession of weapons of 20 years of knowledge in this area. Your comment is higher, what is the difference between AK and saigas in the same caliber 7.62x39? This is a rifling step. On saiges-305-320mm , AKM-240. There was a small batch to zero in increments of 240 mm, but there is a pin barrel. About the difference in the shape of the rifling fields between civilian and army weapons, you probably also did not hear?

                God, how smart. The shape of the rifling is different for Saiga 5.45 but the chan is the same. The difference in the pitch of the rifling at 7.62, even for the benefit of 320 mm, is optimal, re-stabilization is underway at 240. 240 is needed for firing long bullets such as a tracer

        Damn, after all, the cost of a car does not at all reflect its automotive qualities on public roads, and off-road, right?

        Saigu cannot be killed precisely because it is initially stillborn, but it is revived from anything. From "remove the barb by the grandfather’s file" to "hang with everything that is possible and impossible."

        But in terms of use in the quality in which it is positioned - namely, as a hunting weapon - even after peeling it, even with straight hands and competently, like that ...

      Vasyan 495 dollars is a very low price for a shotgun. The local rednecks have a pumpkin fashion. Just a fashion. Nothing more. In addition, I have a wild suspicion that this company is planting the owners of its products on its service and spare parts. Who cares about making quality guns to shoot for decades? In America, you can’t do this in any way, you need to constantly push something in. Here and in the spare parts and service.

    KEL TEC do very interesting things. Structural solutions are sometimes simply ingenious, reliability is really mediocre. The abundance of impact-resistant plastic and where good steel is needed .. However, the pump-action shotgun in itself, like a reloading system, is outdated. The designers tried to breathe new life into it, making it more futuristic. Marketing is nothing more. I would like to see how to take a hare from under the hound from this "gan", or fly a duck, or to the "gangway" or "skete". There is such a fashion in America to buy Schaub Bulo weapons. For example, throw such a barrel into an old Ford clunker with a Cummins engine from the Carboniferous period, or a tractor, or UTV and drive around the old-fashioned ranch without pulling it out of the car for years ... This is also “hunting and no animals to be killed.” then, to frighten the coyote, nobody canceled it either. Here are the purposes of this device.

    Brutal contraption. Stopudovo is used when shooting the seventh terminator. But it is painfully narrow-minded - melee and nothing more. For hunting and practical shooting is not applicable. Apparently, it’s impossible to install in the appendage to the regular sighting (for example, a collimator), unless you take down all the brutality of the grinder and do not carry out deep peeling events.

    The 89th cartridge most likely will not fit. And if it fits, then shoot them ... well, a little presumptuous. :)
