American Tactical Imports introduces two new tactical 12-gauge shotgun models, the TAC-SX2 and the TAC-PX2. Both are budget-level guns that should appeal especially to those looking for a first shotgun or for a back-up gun for the barn or truck.

Both feature 18.5” chrome lined barrels and blued metal with black polymer stocks with heavy recoil pads.

The TAC-PX2 is a standard pump action gun and its MSRP of $299.95 is likely to make it a popular choice if its street price goes much lower. Shotguns are popular for home defense, and those wanting another one just in case will be tempted to pull the trigger at this price.

Even more interesting is the TAC-SX2, a semi-automatic gun with an exciting MSRP of only $379.95. Though pump-action shotguns remain the standard and their reliability makes them a solid choice for nearly any role, semi-auto shotguns are getting to be more and more common as this entry-level offering shows.

Additionally, a two-barrel kit for the TAC-SX2 that includes a 28” barrel allows the tactical gun to be converted to a sporting gun with little effort. The kit has an MSRP of $499.95.

“We are very proud to offer such high-quality tactical shotguns at such an affordable price,” says Joe Calabro, Director of Marketing at American Tactical. “The quality and price-point surpasses any other tactical shotgun lines on the market today, making this the perfect product for budget conscious LE departments as well as a great choice for home defense.”
