Bruce puts this gun in the Large CCW class. Birdman isn't so sure, but since FN calls this gun a "Distinct Advantage" who is he to argue?

Birdman and Bruce introduce a new format where we put guns head to head in direct comparison.

Keep in mind that these are direct compariosons made of these two guns and that these scores only relate to this actual test. If you would like to see a certain matchup, please let us know and we will compare those guns to each other.

All of these guns are part of either Birdman's or Bruce's personal collection and many are also availible to rent for use on the Range at the The Hub

A Versatile Partner for Police Officers

 

The Self-Loading Police Shotgun guarantees soft recoil and reliability of a gas-operated autoloading action. This shotgun has also the exclusive speed loading feature made popular by John M. Browning's famous Auto-5.

Target Acquisition

 

The ghost-type sights with tritium inserts allow a better and quicker acquisition of the target.        

 

They are mounted on a Picatinny rail, allowing the installation of other types of sights should the mission require it.    

Accurate Shooting Patterns

 

The shotgun features an Invector® choke for accurate shooting patterns.

Reduced Weapon Signature

 

A reduced weapon signature is guaranteed by a black composite buttstock and forearm.

Greater Shooting Comfort

 

The shotgun also features a ventilated rubber recoil pad for greater shooting comfort.
