The Kalashnikov USA™ KS-12T shotgun is our 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun based on the popular Russian Saiga shotguns. However, our version is built in the United States by American workers using US made parts and materials. The KS- 12T model differs from our standard KS-12 by incorporating the popular M4-style adjustable buttstock (and six-position receiver extension) in place of the KS-12’s fixed buttstock. This allows users to adjust the length of pull to better fit their body type or install aftermarket stocks with different cheek welds or features. This is particularly useful for shooters wishing to install optical sights. The KS-12T shotgun also incorporates an adjustable pistol grip, a threaded barrel with detachable flash suppressor, a tri-rail forend to fit illumination or laser aiming devices, and an AK style side-mounted optics rail.
The KS-12T accepts both standard 2¾” and 3” magnum 12 gauge cartridges. The gun’s innovative and adjustable gas system allows the use of everything from low recoil target loads, to birdshot, buckshot or slugs.
The total length of the KS-12T is 42.5” with the buttstock fully extended and 38.5” when collapsed. It ships with one 10 round magazine but alternative capacity box and drum magazines are available. Most currently available Saiga accessories will also work on the KS-12T including magazines, drums, muzzle devices and chokes.
