i was watching the American Rifleman tonight and they were doing a piece on the Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Company.
they are a specially firearm manufacturer that hand fits / builds every gun they sell.

i missed the segment where of the show where they showed this shotgun but saw it as the CEO was talking about all the new guns they are going to be building, not just shotguns.


only draw back it is a bit pricey at the MSRP of $1595/$1395, kinda high for a shotgun but if it performs the way they say it does, maybe by the middle of the year my Mossberg might be up for sale before long.

any way here is the bad boy, and i have to say i pity the fool that comes face to face with the motivated home owner.
first the specs.

So a ripoff of the KelTek KSG

The First One

It's been out for three years... you might have noticed it in John Wick.

ya know the old folk lore about staring at the business end of a double barrel, this is right here is 8 times that. enough to make anybody moderately nervous.

Fully loaded I would think heavy and clunky in action. I would like to hold one. It's hard to beat a good pump in combat.

Ouch, that price tag! This cost as much as an SRM 1216!

If you are ok with 5-6 shot in a semi, check this out.

if you watched the video or read the article the guy addressed that and says that it puts the kel tec to shame, the kel tec might as well be a toy.

Only if they know what is being pointed at them.

Are you gonna be all like, "This here is a Connecticut..."?

not convinced - i would like to see a single barrel version

the only " advantage " i could possibly see to this - would be having diffeent loads in each barrel - but as it SEEMS to fire the right barrel then left - with no way of firing " left first ` - then that "advantage " just went out the window

I don't own but have shot the KSG. It was stupid fun just because of the length and maneuverability. Don't know anything about this one but I wondered why it looked so familiar...

It's the same weapon pretty much by spec, but if it costs twice as much it must be better!!!

I'll shoot one in the spring and think about it.... still happy with the Mossburg, personally.

This is a delicious shotgun, I've shot it a couple of times.

Two picatiny rails to mount stuff on!
Two bright lights is all you could use on that.
I think you should keep the Mossberg and buy mine
so you have one for parts.

not a bad looking shotgun, but i looked it up on some of the gunbtoker sites and it sells for the same price range as a mossberg, i think at that price i'll stick with Made In The USA.
