    The shotgun will be available in two models. The ghost ring model will include a weaver rail mounted rear XS Ghost Sight and XS Blade foresight. The standard model has a front bead sight and no rail.

    Both models have a 2 round magazine extension (7+1 magazine capacity), black synthetic stocks, 18.5″ barrel, forward sling swivel and Tactical Extended Remington Choke.

    As you can see above the tactical choke includes a muzzle break, which should decrease recoil, and breach teeth.

    The shotgun will be marketed to both law enforcement and to civilians as a home defense shotgun.
