The name K-S-G simply stands for Kel-Tech Shotgun, and that’s fair, since this pump action is the company’s very first foray into the tactical shotgun market.

In addition to being a bullpup, the KSG features dual magazine tubes, each offering a capacity of six 3" shotshells or seven 2¾" shells. On top of its unusual design, the KSG ejects empty shells downward instead of towards a certain side.

An innovative addition to the company's product line, the KSG is ideal for those looking for a tactical home defense shotgun, and lives up the mantle of Gun of the Week.

18.5"

Rifleman Q&A: U.S. Model Of 1928 Thompson Variants

I was reading an auction catalog, and a reference was made to an American military Thompson submachine gun. It stated it was a “1928 Colt Navy overstamp, not a Savage.” The catalog made that verbiage seem important. What’s the significance of the “overstamp,” and were there other military 1928 Thompsons besides the Navy guns?
