    Default Semi auto pump shotgun.

    Here is something new! A shotgun with both semi-auto and pump actions:




    TriStar's NEW TEC 12 Pump/Auto Home Defense 12ga Shotgun is nothing short of amazing. This shotgun is designed to utilize two actions on the same frame. The TEC 12 is capable of operating in PUMP mode and in Semi-Auto mode by just the turn of a dial. The 3" Chambered TEC 12 uses an inertia Rotary Bolt for smooth action response (in semi-auto). The TEC 12 is finished in Matte Black and features a picatinny rail mounted on the receiver, ghost ring sight and raised front bridge sight with a fiber optic bead, black synthetic stock with rubber fixed pistol grip, plus 1 set of military sling swivels and one set of swivel studs installed. The TEC 12 also has an External Ported Cylinder Choke and is backed by TriStar's 5 Year Warranty.


    Item No. Gauge Bbl. Length Stock Dimensions Avg. Weight
    25120 12 ga. 20" Fixed Pistol Grip 7.4 lbs. $689.00

    I knew that someone had once done it, I just couldn't remember who. Thanks for the information.
    It is kind of unusual. I can't think of any reason to have a "dual action" shotgun, but, what do I know? Anyhow, I thought that I would let the others see it and make comments.

    Switching ammo types often causes an auto to choke. As this is obviously marketed as "tacticool", a twist of a dial and you can go from shooting buck or slugs to say a beanbag round, a tear gas shell, or one of those TASER rounds that might be a bit shy of the recoil needed to operate the auto mechanism.

    The SPAS12 was an attempt at doing this. I had one at one time, for the "cool factor" I would give it 100%, for practical about 10%. It was heavy, bulky and just not really practical at all.

    I remember that it looked like a club. This one looks pretty regular. Just looking, you would think it is a standard pump action.

    Yeah was going to chime in with my SPAS12 being able to do that. It works UNTIL the ports get fouled to the point it must be cleaned. Took us about 80-ish rounds of Wolf 00 buckshot to reach that point. Wolf is known to run dirty - should be able to run up to somewhere between 75-100 of "less dirty" ammo before it becomes a pump-only shotty

    I don't like these. If you need to reliable shoot various loads just get a pump.
