DP-12 – Double-Barrel Bullpup Shotgun by LAV

After listening to Larry chat about the shotgun all week at the class (review coming) where Larry showed he was quite the fan, the video on the DP-12 has finally gone live on the double-barreled 12-gauge. With the quick two-shot capability, the DP-12 easily demolishes a variety of entertaining targets including water tanks and steel.

I was able to go hands-on with the shotgun last week too. While I was not able to put rounds through it, I found the design thoughtful and pragmatic, much more so than the KSG. With the DP-12, the shooter can fire all rounds without having to take any hands off of main control services.

Hit the video below for a full run-down from LAV.

    The ejection system reminds me of the Ithaca shotgun.
    Quite glad to see something like that being reused because the ithaca is one of the rare shotguns with bottom ejection.
    This shotgun is also pretty cool, pretty sure we will see it in many video games and movies now :p

    Here is an idea why not make it a four barrel shotgun then you can have it shoot two slugs on one side and two on the other creating twice the damage and still have the shell come out the bottom or on re pump shells come out from each side as shown in video?
