Tactical gear manufacturer Crye Precision debuted their first firearm at SHOT Show. Instead of entering the firearm industry the easy way with a branded AR-15 they enlisted the skilled gun designer Eric Burt, who has previously worked on the AAC Honey Badger and Magpul Masada, to develop the Crye Precision Six12 Shotgun.
This bullpup shotgun can be used in either standalone or as an underbarrel rifle accessory. The shotgun has a revolving cylinder that is rotated by the double action trigger (it does not have a pre-wound spring like the Milkor MGL). A unique feature of this gun compared with other revolver shotguns is that the cylinder completely detaches from the gun to allow quick reloading with a pre-loaded replacement cylinder.
The shotgun will be available in a number of consumer and law enforcement barrel lengths. The gun is planned to go on sale for law enforcement at the end of 2014 and go on sale to consumers sometime in 2015.
