Have you always wanted a shorty shotgun but don’t want to deal with the whole NFA hassle? Then take a look at the new 12 gauge Model 870 TAC-14 from Remington, an exciting new non-NFA shotgun with a 14-inch barrel.
Technically classed as a “firearm,” the TAC-14 achieves its non-NFA status by employing a “virgin” receiver never attached to a shoulder stock and also having an overall length greater than 26 inches.
Key to the overall length of the TAC-14 is the use of a Shockwave Raptor pistol grip that is gently curved rather than featuring a vertical cant. This design also likely helps mitigate recoil (which could be substantial depending on how you choose to feed this 3-inch chambered 12 gauge). Rounding out the package is a cylinder bore 14-inch barrel with bead sight and a Magpul M-LOK forend. The result is a very compact yet very powerful firearm.
Following the trend blazed by the Mossberg Shockwave (see our full review of the Mossberg here), the new TAC-14 from Remington gives Model 870 fans their own chance to own an ultra-short shotgun that will definitely get some attention on the range.
