I plan on writing about this bullet here soon. I learned about this round a few years back when a buddy of mine was planning on moving up to Colorado and we started talking about guns he showed this bullet and the gun he wanted so I think it is about time I wrote a little post about it.
I thought this was pretty awesome! It is a 12 gauge flash BANG shell
This shell was developed as a stun/diversion round used for riots or in clearing a building for law enforcement. When fired this rounds makes a loud bang and a bright flash to stun someone, when fired, the concussion and explosive blast is directional and produces between 175-182 db. Testing showed no penetration in 10% ballistic gelatin at 8 feet.
The round is similar to a diversionary grenade (a flash-bang) and designed to be aimed at the floor or ceiling at a 45 degree angle and never intentionally at a person or object. This round should to be used with screw in chokes.
Action: Semi-auto Gauge: 12 gauge Bore: 2.75″ – 3″- 3.5″ Stock: Synthetic Material/Finish:Steel/TriNyte coating with nickel plated bore Barrel Length:26″ and 28″ Weight: 7.5 pounds or 7.7 pounds Overall Length: 46.9375″ and 49.9375″ Sights: Hi-Viz interchangeable sights Scope: Drilled and tapped for scope mounts Chokes: Extra full Full Improved cylinder Modified Capacity: 2 (3.5) 3 (2.75 or 3) Features: Cold hammer forged barrel; over-molded grips; nickel plated barrel; and shoots magnum shells
(This gun weighs about the same as the Beretta A391 Xtrema 2, 12GA, 3.5 which has similar specs.)
I have used a number of auto loading (semi-auto) shotguns everything from Beretta to Browning to Remington and Benelli. I have in the past favored the Beretta because it has had the smoothest action of the guns I have shot. I have been reading the reviews on this gun and how it is performing in the real world both competition and hunting and have seem mostly good things coming from this gun.
If you have used this shotgun I would like to hear your views on this gun both good and bad if you have them.
Don’t forget to come back tomorrow as we end this week in a BANG!
