Kel-Tec KSG Shotgun Update – BEWARE HOAX SELLERS

Kel-Tec recently released several updates on the production of the highly-anticipated KSG shotgun.

At this point, Kel-Tec has made several small runs of the shotgun, and those units have shipped to various people for testing and evaluation.

Additionally, Kel-Tec is advising that all KSG shotguns being offered for sale on and other locations “…are hoaxes.” Kel-Tec stated that they have not shipped any shotguns that are available for resale, and that any of the people with T&E guns that try to sell them “…will be dealt with on their end.”

Kel-Tec stated they are “confident” they “…will be shipping in full quantities by year’s end as previously anticipated.”

    "We got the first of the KSGs out before the holidays, but for the most part we’re going to start shipping them steadily now. We didn’t have a stash of them or manage to make thousands in one day, so there’s a backorder on them and I’m sure the first ones going out are probably already claimed, but be patient and we’ll get them out just as fast as we can. Wait time will depend on your dealer, not on us; we’re shipping them every week.

    Unfortunately, we only sell only to the wholesalers, then they to the dealers, so I don’t have any dealer listings. I can only suggest online or the phonebook and calling them to find out if they carry or can order what you’re looking for.

    I just put a KSG on layaway, cost me only $785.00. I also got a used set of Magpul sights for it for $65.00 and ordered a brake and nut removal tool for it for $120.00. The KSG was only on display for 5 hours before it was sold. :)

      @Ken I forgot to add, the store had it tagged at $899.00, but the manager\saleman is a friend of mine and gave me a deal. Lets just say I buy a lot of stuff. He said that he was offered only one by his wholesaler.
      This was onlt the second KSG that he was able to get his hands on.
