From home defense to the field, these guns cover it all.

4 New Shotguns for 2024

Shotguns are among the most versatile firearm platforms in existence. The traditional shotgun can do it all, but specialized models are dialed to the specific needs of duck, turkey and deer hunters, as well sporting clays, predator control and home defense. 

Regardless of the need or interest, the following four shotguns have the bases covered.

Weatherby Sorix Semi-Auto Shotgun

Weatherby recently added the optics-ready Sorix Semi-Auto Shotgun to its esteemed firearms lineup, designed for reliability, performance and adaptability — built on the field proven inertia recoil system. The durable, ergonomic Sorix uniquely accommodates left-handed hunters with Weatherby’s Shift System — a cut on the left side of the receiver allows lefties to easily swap the charging handle, and the safety can be reversed. Other key features include a competition cut receiver and oversize controls, stepped rib and LPA fiber-optic sight, adjustable stock shims, hand-painted brush patterns — Midnight Marsh, Storm and Slough — and the Crio Plus choke system: MSRP: $1,499


Blaser F16 Pro Series Shotgun

Designed by World Champion Shooter Cory Kruse, the 12-gauge F16 Pro Series from Blaser is a tricked-out version of the standard F16 Sporting shotgun that’s ready for competition right out of the box. It was designed to reduce recoil and muzzle jump for easier transition to the second shot. New features include an adjusted pitch angle, which allows for a more comfortable flush fit mount on the shoulder while further dispersing felt recoil. Added weight in the stock and barrel deliver perfect balance while aiding in recoil reduction in conjunction with the new Kick-EEZ butt pad. The F16 Pro series shotgun’s 32-inch barrel comes with Rhino’s 13-port “pigeon porting” system and G1 series chokes. MSRP: $6,675/Right-hand model; $7,165/Left-hand model


Citadel Tidalwave 12-gauge Pump-Action Tactical Shotgun 

The Citadel Tidalwave 12-gauge Pump-Action Tactical Shotgun from Legacy Sports International is compact, economical and effective. Whether it’s a day at the range shooting for fun or for use as a close-range home defense weapon, this formidable, value-priced shotgun will not disappoint. Chambered for 3-inch shotshells, the Citadel Tidalwave is equipped with a 14.75-inch barrel, 4 + 1 magazine capacity, fixed-cylinder choke, tough black synthetic stock, dovetail receiver, textured foregrip, bead sight, swivel studs and paracord sling. MSRP $359


Mossberg International 12-gauge Silver Reserve HS12 O/U Shotgun

Joining the extensive family of Mossberg International over-and-under shotguns is the new Silver Reserve Eventide HS12 (Home Security 12-gauge) Shotgun. This break-action O/U shotgun is chambered for 3-inch shotshells and features a synthetic stock and forend, shell extractors, chrome-lined barrels and bores and dual-locking lugs for durability and a multitude of applications. It comes equipped with a black synthetic stock with cut-checkering on the grip and forend, 14-inch length of pull, matte blue metal finish and 18.5-inch cylinder bore barrels topped with an elevated front fiber-optic sight. Completing this security offering are Picatinny-style rails on the receiver and under-barrel for ease of adding accessories, the Mossberg logo laser-engraved on the receiver and tang-mounted safety and barrel selector. MSRP: $756
