Welcome everyone to the 63rd edition of ‘Hot Gat or Fudd Crap?’, one of our many series here on TFB. If you’re new to the series, this is where we look at the most obscure firearms that are actually for sale and ask the question – is this Gat a sweet deal or only have Fudd appeal? Each week the TFB staff weighs in with their thoughts, but readers get the final say in the poll at the bottom of each article.
In our last edition, our poll showed that you the readers, decided that the Taurus 30 S was just fudd crap.
At this time the original auction remains up, while the Taurus 30 S awaits a new home. We hope it finds one soon
In this week’s edition of HGFC, we look at a snow and blood themed Remington TAC-13. As is tradition, this arctic shotgun is currently up for sale on GunBroker for $500 with No Reserve.
HOT GAT or FUDD CRAP?
Arctic Warrior or Wood-Chipper Horror?
Let’s see what the Staff had to say about this week’s offering:
“Forensics is gonna love this one.” – Luke C.
“For when you want to skip the legal process altogether and go directly to prison” – Pete
“From Jackson Pollack’s mouth-breathing, trailer park-dwelling, methhead cousin, Billy Ray Cletus Pollack.” – Will P.
“When your gun is so worthless at being a gun, it’s only value is in beating Wampas on Hoth” – Adam S.
Selling this blood and snow-themed gat is GunBroker seller mestrega, located in Allen TX. Let’s see what they had to say about this very custom TAC-13.
Strike fear into the heart of any bad guy with this 1-of-a-kind Blood Splatter skinned Semi-Auto Shotgun Pistol from Emperor Firearms. Built-in Turkey, this 5 shot 12 ga pistol will give you the upper hand in almost any situation. Add the psychological advantage of the appearance of blood splatter already covering the gun, and you have the perfect mix for an advantageous situation.
You might be able to find other pistol style shotguns with Birds Head Grips, but most are still pump action. With Emperors Mogul Max, just keep squeezing the trigger, and bad guys will keep falling.
The shield wraps around the barrel and magazine tube, giving you plenty of room to put furniture on the several Picatinny rails it sports. From lasers to holographic sights, to shell carries, this awesome shotgun pistol gives you all the room you need to make this gun uniquely yours, for your unique situation.
The wooden Birds Head Grip is blacked out to give a beautiful contrast with the base white that showcases the blood splatter that covers the receiver, shield, pointed magazine nut, and aggressive muzzle brake.
Strangely enough, HGFC is featuring a gun that I’ve also previously reviewed. The Remington V3 TAC-13 packs a lot of punch in a small shockwave sized package. While the semi-auto system does soak up a lot of the recoil, this particular TAC-13 looks like it really wants to hit whoever is shooting it.
The added weight of the rails up top and bottom will certainly help mitigate some of the recoil. Personally, I’d prefer the factory hand strap upfront, rather than risk my hand slipping towards those Picatinny rails adding some real blood spatter.
On the flip side, the added rails do give you space to mount things like an optic, light, or laser. Unless you’re deciding to point shoot the TAC-13, it’s probably worth figuring out some way to aim it. With all that said, I still can’t even begin to fathom just why this particular TAC-13 was modified this way, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and as always I’ll leave it up to you to decide.
What do you think? Is this blood-stained TAC-13 a Hot Gat or just some grotesque Fudd Crap? Be sure to let us know in the comments below, and cast your vote to let us know if this Remington TAC-13 is a Hot Gat or Fudd Crap:
