The DP-12: Another entry into the bullpup scattergun market

One of the most popular and innovative shotguns on the market right now, the Kel Tec KSG, helped usher in a modern resurgence in the interest in bullpup 12-gauge designs. Soon after the KSG came out, various importers started bringing in a Turkish competitor, the UTS-15. Now it seems, there is a third suitor on the bullpup block: the DP-12.

What is it?

Like the KSG and the UTS-15, the DP-12 is a compact stocked shotgun that has the action centered deep in the stock itself, thus shortening the overall length of the gun while keeping a full length (for a tactical shotgun) barrel and not having to resort to a pistol grip only configuration or a tax stamp. Unlike the KSG and the UTS-15, it has two barrels.
