Vantage Arms SIX12 bullpup style 12-gauge shotgun (VIDEO)

There are a lot of interesting firearms at SHOT Show every year, but every now and then there are a few that stand out as being unique and inventive. One of those was the Six12 shotgun by Vantage Arms.

Eric D’Ambrosio-Correll gave a tour of the modular, revolver shotgun chambered in 12-gauge. The Six12 is capable of firing 2 3/4 inch shells from a six round, removable and interchangeable cylinder. It’s a dual-action only revolver.

The Six12’s unique design puts the weight of the gun close to the shooter making it easy to carry and use. It’s physically compact while still providing a full length barrel, much like a bullpup. This makes it effective for both hunting and at the range.

Since there’s no gas system and it’s not recoil operated, it will cycle light, less-lethal loads, or heavy breaching rounds without a problem.

The gun is a modular system that can be configured for different applications. The full length civilian version is 26 1/2 inches in length and sports an 18 1/2 inch barrel. It’s made in the U.S. from U.S. materials.

MSRP will be in the $1,800 ballpark. Vantage is taking pre-orders in the fall of 2017 and delivering in the winter 2017/2018.
