UTAS-USA has launched a new limited edition of the XTR-12 competition shotgun being produced by their custom shop. Sadly, UTAS-USA’s press release offered near no information about the limited edition shotgun other than an MSRP of $1349, the fact that there are limited quantities and a short list of features.
It looks like it will feature a barrel set up to use any of the five Benelli Crio chokes included with the shotgun. UTAS-USA is also going to include a choke case and wrench according to the press release.
You also get a vertical foregrip with a bipod that shoots out of the bottom like the Samson Grip Pod that has seen wide use with US military units in Iraq and Afganistan. It appears that an unknown brand is being fitted to the limited edition XTR-12 that operates in a similar manner to the more well-known brand of bipod.
The press release also states that you get a collapsible adjustable comb stock and a skeletonized handguard with no mention of what type of attachment points are on the shotgun. Unfortunately, the photo that was sent out with the press release was not of a high enough quality to see if they included keymod on the rail or if it just has holes in the side that serve no function.
