For Cheaper Than Dirt!’s 12 Days of Christmas sale, we saved the best for last—the DP-12 Shotgun!
Bullpup pump shotguns are all the rage these days, with their ability to carry upward of a dozen
rounds in a dependable, hand-operated action. However, the DP-12 Shotgun is in a class of its own. Sure there are others that look like a DP-12, but none operate like a DP-12—and that is important in a self-defense situation. The DP-12 is unique in that it offers two independent firing systems. In other words, it has two 7-round magazine tubes and two barrels. In essence, the DP-12 is a double-barrel pump gun.
Connecticut Shotgun Manufacturing Co.—doing business as Standard Manufacturing LLC for purposes of making the DP-12—is a double-barrel shotgun maker, but more along the lines of premium break-open models, such as Winchester Custom Shop Model 21s and A.H. Fox shotguns.
What Standard Manufacturing has done is marry the pump shotgun with the single-trigger double-barrel shotgun, markedly different than lesser models such as the KSG and the UTS-15, which employ a single barrel fed by two separate 7-round tubes.
As shown in the accompanying video, the receiver for the DP-12 is machined from a solid block of aluminum, making it super stout. Because of the weight of its mechanical systems and the number of rounds it carries, the DP-12 fires from the shoulder much like any other pumpgun.
As shown, the shooter chambers two rounds with each pump; then pulls the trigger two times, the first to fire the right barrel, the second to fire the left barrel. Pump, bang!, bang! Pump, bang!, bang! Repeat as necessary.
A number of rails up front allow for placing lights or other accessories. The barrels are threaded for adding chokes or breaching muzzle brakes, and the safety location is standard AR placement.
