UTS-15 Neptune

UTAS-USA and Davidson’s are now selling a new version of the UTS-15 shotgun with the Kryptek Neptune finish.

If you are not familiar with the UTS-15, it is a pump action shotgun that has a 14+1 capacity. It is available with various barrel lengths, though short barrel shotguns have reduced magazine capacities. Its high capacity comes from the multiple, selectable magazine tubes.

Kryptek Neptune is a camouflage pattern that uses blues and blacks. The suggested retail price of this shotgun is $1,299. More information on the shotgun can be found by clicking here. You can also read Katie’s experience with the gun here.

    Damn, why isn’t there Uranus camo?

      Isn’t there a Coyote Brown version? That ought to blend in with Uranus!

  • Tim U

    Does it work any better than the original one? I’m guessing it’s still crap, just decorated crap.

    • Michael Acuna

      I second that motion. Was the feeding issue ever fixed? I hate it when what would have been a great gun is ruined by poor execution and it’s even worse when the manufacturer is like F fixing it we need new camo patterns on it.

        Surprisingly, the most recent generation of the UTS-15 is dead reliable, at least the example I fired recently was. Aside from intentionally causing failures, the function is as reliable as an 870 or 500. I was amazed they got it quite so thoroughly worked out, and I wish they hadn’t released it to the public until this most recent iteration.

          Good to know.
          In the virtual family of bullpup dual-fed shotguns (Neostead – KSG – UTS-15), I see the Turkish as the one (potentially) more advanced and with the most interesting features. I’m glad to know it’s starting to really offer what it promised.

            Indeed. The next step for them, logically, would be to recall all prior generations for update/upgrade and slowly build the reputation to where it ought to be for the latest generation. They truly do have a fine item with this third generation.

    This. This is what I have been waiting for to pull the trigger.

    Perfect camo for a boating accident….

    • Beju

      Well, it works for the Navy 😉

    The main problem with this is that it’s most likely hydrodipped graphics. While you can get super pretty results from it, it’s not durable at all. It tends to weaken and flake off fairly quickly, and once it starts it snowballs.

    Do a similar pattern in Cerakote (or even Duracoat) and you’d get me to open the wallet.

  • Despite being called the Neptune, the sea will actually hurl this back if it falls overboard.

    As much as I loathe the man I remember, with some amusement, when FPS Russia had a review of the UTS-15 and, of the three models sent to him…only one suffered no malfunctions.
