The Tac 14 is not a shotgun due to the legal definition of a shotgun. By law, a shotgun must have or have had a shotgun or be redesigned as a weapon with a butt. Because pistols do not have a barrel length required by federal law and cannot be fired from the shoulder, this weapon is more of a pistol than a legally defined shotgun. The rear pistol grip is key to the legality of the Tac 14. The Shockwave Raptor handle is horizontal rather than vertical. This adds a few extra inches to the design and allows it to exceed that overall length threshold of 26 inches with a 14-inch barrel. The Shockwave Raptor handle holds the design together, and it`s a well-made handle. Some states classify shotguns differently than the federal government, and these types of firearms may not be legal in your state. Always check state and local laws before buying or building any of these 12-gauge firearms. While we may return and dive into states that cannot possess at this time, we only recommend checking with local authorities for the legality of owning a Remington Tac-14 in your state. Is this CA shotgun legal? OAL is 26.5″ and there is no stock, so does the 18″ operating requirement apply? “Boom!, boom! Shuck”, that`s my favorite sound I hear on the scale. I really like shotguns, but today we are not talking about a shotgun.
It is a firearm. A firearm is essentially the legal definition of a weapon that does not fit a traditional legal definition. I installed a simple Magpul Mlok front handle on the pump, and it helps you control the weapon and is legal to do. The handle attaches directly to the pump without the need for rails and this makes the weapon much more effective in my opinion. We`ll cover what makes the Tac-14 legal in the next section, but hopefully since Remington, now RemArms, is in new hands, production of the Tac-14 and Tac-13 will resume soon! Shotguns are designed by law to be fired from the shoulder and without a butt, this weapon cannot be fired from the shoulder and therefore no barrel length applies. The Remington Tac-14 is an action pump. Weapon. that fires 12-gauge shotgun grenades.
Joking aside, the Remington Tac-14 is a short shotgun that bypasses the legal definition of a short-barreled shotgun and puts it in your hands. Although it is a question and an answer. I always recommend getting your hands on a gun before you buy it to make sure it`s right for you! I love these kinds of weapons. The short barrel, the pistol grip and the action of the pump smell of freshness. It`s a good time, literally and figuratively, to get you out on the field. It must be said that these are not well suited to beginners. Depending on how you use this weapon, you may want a noose to carry the weapon easily. The Remington Tac 14 is technically a 12-gauge pumping action firearm. It`s not a shotgun, so technically it can`t be a short-barreled shotgun.
Since it is over 26 inches tall, it is not considered coverable and is therefore not AOW. Sometimes practicality doesn`t matter. Sometimes you just want a fun gun, and those 12-gauge guns are a literal explosion. They don`t necessarily need to serve anything, except you want one and it`s fun to shoot. This small shotgun has a certain weight. The Remington 870 series is known for using an all-steel receiver. This gives the design both strength and weight. The Tac 14 weighs 5.65 pounds, it`s not a boat anchor, but if it feels good in the hand. There is almost nothing to mitigate recoil with this weapon. It is a 12-gauge straight recoil in all its glory. The Tac 14 looks extremely well done. First, Remington reinforced it with the box they contain.
The weapon is housed in a large green cardboard box, but comes with a custom foam cushion that protects and holds the weapon. This foam-cut pad is something I keep to line the inside of a rigid side box. It`s an incredibly fun weapon to shoot, but in the pistol clip setup, I definitely don`t want to shoot all day. Firearms such as the Mossberg 590 Shockwave, Remington 870 Tac-14, Henry Axe, Black Aces Tactical Pro Series and others are often housed in common shotguns such as the 12 Gauge and .410, but their barrels are shorter than 18 inches. So they are short-barreled shotguns, aren`t they? False. They require nothing more than a traditional 4473 and a background check as they are not Title 2 weapons. A crucial element in keeping this firearm only as a firearm and not as a shotgun of any kind is to never attach a butt to it. There are two reasons why you shouldn`t attach a butt to your gun. First, if you attach a stock while the weapon has a 14-inch barrel, it becomes an unregistered short-barreled shotgun.
Doing this without proper NFA documentation is a federal crime and carries hefty fines and a lengthy prison sentence. The trigger of the Remington Tac-14 is surprisingly good. I`ve never found the amazing shotgun prints, but for what it is, it`s great! You can find them at a number of retailers on the Internet. I keep saying firearms as if it were a separate classification of weapons. In a way, it is, but it is basically a collective term for weapons that is outside normal classifications. The new Mossberg 590 Shockwave and Remington Tac 14 both fall into this category of firearms. These are technically 12-gauge shotguns with 14-inch barrels. Why isn`t the Remington Tac-14 considered a short-barreled shotgun with a 14-inch barrel, you ask? It is a well-constructed weapon; There is no denying that. It`s fun to photograph and a bit challenging. From a technical point of view, there are no glaring gaps. If you`re looking for a tactical shotgun, I`d look at something else. If you want a fun weapon, then the Tac 14 is a brilliant choice.
There are a number of options for light stands, even Stream makes a forend that has a built-in Streamlight flashlight. What`s really impressive about the head handles of these birds is the way they move the recoil. There is no pain in the wrist when shooting at one of these firearms. These are more convenient than your traditional pistol-grip shotgun. • Capacity: 5+2 or 7+2• Action: S/A D/A• Caliber: 12 gauge The Remington Tac-14 is considered “any other weapon” commonly referred to as AOW.
