    One of the most versatile shotguns to have this year is the new Citadel Semi-Automatic RS-S1 Shotgun, based on the popular AK platform. The RS-S1 is built from the ground up to be a user friendly, hard use shotgun that will perform under the harshest conditions. It is compatible for home defense, recreation, as well as competition use.

    The Citadel RS-S1 shotgun features a gas-operated cycling system that powers the action and provides smooth cycling and lessened recoil of light and heavy loads. The shotgun is available in 12 gauge with 2 ¾” to 3” chambering, 20” barrel, 2 detachable 5 round magazines. The chrome, moly lined barrel is proofed for steel shot and internally threaded Beretta/Benelli Mobil Chokes.

The RS-S1 also features an enhanced safety lever for one finger use, a large easy to use magazine release, and easy to use bolt hold open and bolt release levers.
