Kel-Tec got it right- Shockwave killer

KS7.

Got rid of the second tube on the KSG and lightened it up a whopping 2lbs and 20 less parts. Carry handle design with Hi-Viz sights in the channel (the entire carry handle is removable to replace with a picatinney rail). Lots of M-Lok slots for mounting flashlights and whatever else. At first I thought the carry handle was stupid looking but the more I think about it the more I like it.

Same length as a Shockwave but with pistol grip, buttstock and 8rd capacity. MSRP $495.

That "shotgun" looks a little to Star Wars for me to accept right away. Will take a lot of rethinking on my part. I'll stick to my stainless Shockwave for now.

Since my KSG will hold 11 (slugs) or 12 (shot) of the Aguila mini shells in each tube (23 to 25 shell capacity) I would think if you used them in the KS7, you could get 12 or 13 round total capacity. They cycle in my KSG like it was made for them as long as you rack it like you mean it. If not for being retired with more limited funds, I'd look into these KS7!

The only trouble I've ever had with cycling on my KSG was when I was sighting in the CMR-201 CT laser and I wasn't really paying attention to how I was pumping it! Never had an issue any other time with regular or mini shells.
