All that Glitters: The Golden DP-12

It’s Gold (colored, that is)!

Standard Manufacturing Company never fails to impress.  This past year at SHOT Show, they released the Volleyfire, a six barrel, twin-shot carry gun.  Something to check out, if you haven’t already.

They also showcased a golden version of their DP-12.  Paul got a chance to look it up close when he visited their booth.

Anyways, I thought it was pretty neat and deserving of some more love.  It’s not every day that one comes across a double-barrel pump gun that’s received the Midas treatment.

The DP-12 has a capacity of 16 rounds.

The overall length is 29.5 inches.


  • 12 Gauge
  • Fires 2 3/4 or 3″ shells
  • Two 18 7/8″ barrels
  • 29.5″ overall length
  • Unloaded weight is 9 pounds 12 ounces
  • 16 Round capacity, 14 rounds in the magazines and two rounds in the chamber
  • Two shots with each pump
  • Single trigger
  • Machined from aircraft grade 7075 aluminum

What are your thoughts?

We reviewed the DP-12 when it was first released.  Initially thought to be just another novelty gun, this bad boy proved to be much more, legitimizing itself as a real-deal home defense firearm. Reliable, dependable and with an impressive capacity of 16 rounds in a bullpup-style design, the DP-12 is truly a next-level scatter gun.

The only downside to the DP-12, if there is one, is the brief time it takes to overcome the muscle memory associated with using a traditional pump gun.  When operating the DP-12, you shoot twice, then pump to cycle the action, shoot twice, then pump as opposed to shoot once, pump, shoot once, pump as you would with a regular shotgun.

The retail price for this golden, limited edition DP-12 is $1,800.  Check out the Standard Manufacturing website to learn more.

You can also pick up a regular black DP-12 on GunsAmerica for around $1,200-$1,300.
