We have the DP-12 out at Media Day at the Range. The DP-12 is a 12 gauge, double-barreled, pump-action shotgun. Watch it feed and eject shells flawlessly. The DP-12 will soon be available exclusively at Cheaper Than Dirt!
The DP-12 has two, 7-round magazine tubes that feed into the barrels (for a total of 16 rounds). Two rounds are chambered—one in each barrel—with one pump. Pull the trigger once for the right barrel and then again for the left barrel.
The shells then eject. Pump the forearm to chamber two more rounds. The DP-12’s receiver is machined from a solid piece of aluminum. The shotgun has a vertical foregrip for easier and quicker pumping.
This DP-12 bullpup shotgun has a trigger traditional to double-barreled shotguns, but the feeding mechanics of a pump. The controls are fully ambidextrous and the safety is similar to the safety on an AR-15. The barrel is threaded and there is a rail for optics and accessories.
Previous to the official announcement of the DP-12 double-barreled pump-action shotgun, the industry grumbled. “It will never work,” they said. However, the DP-12 knocked the competition out of the water and surprised everyone at the range with its 100 percent flawless functioning and unexpectedly mild recoil.
