Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy: Gold DP-12 Pump Gun

gold dp-12

If you find yourself itching for something a bit more flashy the next time you are at the range, check out the “EXTREMELY LIMITED EDITION” DP-12 shotgun with a gold colored finish. It can make you the real Man with the Golden Gun (diminutive sidekick sold separately.)

Functionally, the gun is the same as the base package gun. But, it is far more powerful on the eyes. Whether that is good or gaudy is up to you.

According to Standard Mfg. Co., the suggested retail price on this golden gun is $1,800. The plain DP-12 carries an MSRP of $1,395.


  • 12 gauge pump shotgun with two 18.875″ barrels
  • 14+2 round capacity
  • can run 2 3/4″ and 3″ shells
  • a single trigger operates the lead launcher
  • unloaded, the gun weighs almost 10 pounds (about 0.7 stone)
  • receiver is machined 7075-T6 while the stock is synthetic
  • it has a spring loaded system to absorb recoil; also has a rubber recoil pad with dual recoil absorbing springs

The original DP-12 is black. If you like green, the company seems to have marked the price of that gun down to the same as the black gun. Sure, it’s not as eye catching, but maybe you’re one of those understated guys who prefers to let your actions speak louder than the gun’s finish.

Of course, the DP line of shotguns is made by the same company that developed the six barrel handgun and named its rifle line STD.

    The Haitian boss realized that those black guns did not suit his status.
    I hope at least the metal parts are TiN coated…

    The only golden guns that are cool, are the ones you pry from the dead hand of the dictator you just brained. Fact.

      Like the AK-74 and SVD pried out of the vault of Saddam’s palace in 2003. Actual gold plate too.

        My thought exactly, if it wasn’t for the whole, having to fight a war part, I’d have loved to be the first door kickers into a Saddam Palace!!

        China gave Casper Weinberger a gold plated AKM 30 yrs ago. Didn’t get to shoot it but got to handle it.

    I can only imagine the horrible emotional problems/microscopic penis one must harbor to purchase such a thing.

      i guess we know the IUD stands for
      Inter-uterine device

      • TheNotoriousIUD

        I thought everyone pretty much knew that…

      Standard Mfg should throw in a custom DP-12/Hummer H2 gunrack with each of these.

    Oi, Tassiebush! I think we finally found the best version for you to “experiment” with.

    I’m pretty sure that is the same height and weight as Scaramanga’s butler.

    That moment when the range strange witness your prestige level when you take out the golden DP-12. Better bring your floaties, bois, or drown in vag.

      If they’re 12 and DP’d that is illegal in 50 states.

    I don’t see the point of these without double triggers. Why go 95% crazy and not finish the job? Like almost getting to the top of Mt Everest and turning back.

    Mine is a Tan DP 12. Wonderful shotgun. Gold colored DP 12s have been out since they hit the market last year.

    I guess the $64-K question would be WHY. This would rate with the Same Question as to Why Oleg Volk took Two Perfectly Good Shotguns and Converted them into Floor Lamps.
