Billed as the first 16-round semi-automatic shotgun, the SRM Arms Model 1216 places itself firmly within the tactical home-defense shotgun discussion.
Featuring SRM's quad-tube revolving magazine (which the operator can manually rotate with the flip of a switch), the 1216 offers 16-rounds of easily reloadable power. The magazine can be dropped and replaced with a loaded one almost instantly, eliminating the reloading issues that plague some of the tactical shotguns on the market.
The magazine is suited for 2 ¾” or 3” inch shells and can handle game loads, trap loads, slugs and other specialty rounds. The 1216's tactical design also opens up to a whole world of accessories and add-ons.
Powerful and versatile, the 1216 is well worth considering if you're looking for a shotgun to defend your home—and it meets the high standards required of a Gun of the Week.
