Khan Arms A-TAC Force DUO-SYS

_LGY1717

The new A-TAC Force DUO-SYS shotgun from Turkish manufacturer Khan Arms debuted at IDEF 2015 in Istanbul. The Khan DUO-SYS 12 gauge action allows the user to alternate between pump/action mode and semi-automatic mode, this is of most use to law enforcement who might be switching between various rounds, such as breaching rounds, that might not have the energy to cycle the action.

The shotgun has a full length fixed stock with a ergonomic pistol grip. A magazine extension is installed (although I don’t know the capacity). A door breaching-style muzzle brake is installed on the 20″ barrel along with a heat shield.  It has an iron rear sight built into the picatinny rail on top of the receiver. Optics are a popular shotgun accessory in Turkey due to gun laws prohibiting rifle ownership.

These shotguns tend to be sold in the Middle East and Eastern Europe. I am not sure what they sell for.

Thanks to Lionel for the photos and information.

    Hmmm, I kind of want one, I wonder what the quality is like. Being of Turkish manufacture, I am sure the price would be reasonable. Wish they sold them here, I would definitely check one out.

    • It looks basically identical to the Tristar TEC-12, which was about $550 street. It’s basically a Benelli M3 clone inside, but I don’t think it takes the same furniture. Not a bad shotgun if you’ve wanted an M3 (but didn’t want to pay for one).

        you can upgrade the tech 12 to an 8 shot tube using a fairly affordable and easy to install aftermarket tube. If anyone needs the exact info I will dig it up.

      Most of these Turkish guns sell in the $300 – $500 range
      CZ’s shotguns and Winchesters SXP are both Turkish made.

    Alternate between pump and semi-auto? Hmmm, isn’t that interesting. Of course, the simplicity nut in my screams ‘not reliable!, too complex!’, but the gun nut in me says… hmmm cool, I want one.

    • Gabe

      It’s handy if you run any non-standard rounds or less lethal as they are often not strong enough to cycle a semi-auto.

  • Bj

    So a licensed Benelli M3?

  • Carl

    It’s literally the same shotgun over and over and over again.

    Every Turkish Semi/Pump Tactical Shotgun is the same shotgun over and over and over again.

    • El Duderino

      So wait…their CZ clones aren’t all just CZ clones too? 😉

  • kregano

    So, this the shotgun that’s imported as the Tristar TEC-12, just with a heat shield?

  • Captain Obvious

    Kind of a Spas 12 kind of action i.e, dual semi/pump

  • Lance

    Beneili M-1 clone COUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Samael527

    What’s the advantage of being able to switch between pump-action and semi-auto? Is it so you can use loads that might not be able to cycle the action?

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      Lighter load who may not have enough oompf to cycle the action. Less-lethal and such.

  • roguetechie

    there’s another Turkish semi/pump shotgun on the market which is a pretty exact clone of the benelli… Last I looked you can usually get one for $500-$600…
    But my problem is to get the feature set I want in a shotgun I have to buy 5 shotguns… Which doesn’t really work because I kinda… You know want the features in a single gun…

    1. Make a folding stock.

    2. Attach an oversized pump handle.

    3. Cash in on Jurassic World.

    4. Life, uh, finds a way.

    I’m a shotgun ‘fanatic’ if you will and even though I do not need yet another one, I’ve always been interested in the ‘dual-action’ tactical models. I think a lot of it is growing up as a kid during the ‘heyday’ of the Franchi SPAS-12 which to this day remains a very popular gun with a huge fan-following. Lately, I think this market has been almost exclusive to the Benelli M3 and or TriStar Tec-12 (which outside the HUGE price disparity look alike to me).

    As the author here suggests, unless one is in the Middle-East (real bad idea) I don’t think one is available for market in the U.S…?
