Crye Precision, a company known for tactical gear popular with law enforcement and active duty military personnel, has made a gun unlike anything we have seen at the SHOT Show this year. Actually, it’s not like anything we’ve ever seen before. The Six12 is a bullpup revolving shotgun. The gun holds six rounds of 12 gauge (get it) in a revolving cylinder. The Six12s are designed to mount to AR platform rails, and make an AR look even much more aggressive. And it looks like it is going to be popular. We had to fight through an excited crowd to get you these pictures.
According to one of the Crye representatives, the original idea was for this add-on to be used for fast breaching. After initial testing, they decided that it would have a lot more uses in threat escalation and home defense situations. This led to the creation of a standalone model that will have a stock and 22” barrel. The Six12 will be able to swap out barrels that will come in 12.5, 18 and 22 inch lengths. The short barrel will require NFA paperwork, but it will be worth the wait. Crye is anticipating a 4th quarter release to law enforcement, with commercial sales to follow. We’ll have one in hand for testing ASAP.
