Standard Manufacturing is definitely one of the more innovative firearms manufacturers out there. You probably know them best for the DP-12, their double-barrel bullpup, pump-action shotgun with a 16-round capacity.

We reviewed the DP-12 in the past and were duly impressed with the craftsmanship, the dependability and, of course, the capacity.  Sixteen rounds of 12 gauge in a compact, bullpup package!

While we have yet to get our paws on the semi-auto SKO, we are very excited to see what it brings to the table and if it lives up to the high bar set by its older brother the pump-action DP-12.

    Why does everyone think that just because am ugly gun is made black, it has to reference that AR-15 platform?
    That thing is just plain UGLY!
    The MAK 1919 not only looks like an AR platform weapon, but it sells for less than 1/2 the price as this “HUNK-A-JUNK” looking thing!

    is this Déjà vu or did paul do this exact same thing once before, almost dropping a gun he was reaching for behind him, while muzzle sweeping the interviewee with a handgun he was holding?!…am i losing it?

      Did notice he had the pistol muzzle almost in his mouth for a while, bad example all the way around

    Anyone else thinking 20 gauge ?

    Video says “priced under 1k”… article 1100. Inflation is a bitch.

    Not with choke tubes. If they don’t offer a plain cylinder/slug bore barrel I will NOT be buying one at any price.

    Why does the rail float like that? meh…

      Did this company ever get their double-barrel bullpup pump action shotgun running consistently? The last time I saw the reviews on that it was an ill running non wonder! I think I rather stick with my Saiga12 or Vepr12, at least they are reliable magazine fed 12 gauges.
