Safe Harbor’s made similar shotguns in the past, but these new Kompact Entry Guns are reaching for the golden ring. They’re short-barreled pump-action pistol-grip shotguns, manufactured from either Remington 870s or Mossberg 500s. Useful? Maybe. Fun? 100%.
The new pumps have a couple of functional legs up on the previous model KEGs. The first is a breacher muzzle device. Seeing how breaching and pump shotguns go together like steak and more steak, this makes a lot of sense. Also, it extends the overall length of the gun just enough to squeeze an extra 2¾ shell into the magazine.
So with a 7¼-inch-barreled shotgun you get 4+1, and with a 10-incher, 5+1. That’s a nice step step up from the similar Serbu Super Shorty, (2+1, 6.5-inch barrel) albeit with a commensurately larger and longer package. They’re also 30 bucks cheaper, which is kind.
And just for kicks, they’re working on a .410, too. Which seems like a whole lot of fun but search us for a practical use.
Still, as far as shotguns that are just plain good times for shooting and can ride pretty inconspicuously in a car or truck, these guys are at the top of the list. The current KEGs sell for $705, but we should think that these higher-capacity tacticooler models are gonna run a little more. Expect to see more of Safe Harbor’s new guns this SHOT.
