Going loud with the Tac-14

As an offering to the expanding novel market for mini-pump action shotguns that aren’t, Remington’s Tac-14 is a solid and shootable offering that has some niche uses and a broad appeal.

Going back to the old Remington 870 “Witsec” specials designed for U.S. Marshals, shorty shotties have filled a niche role for years but fell under National Firearms Act regulations as Short Barreled Shotguns or Any Other Weapons — the latter as in the case of the Serbu Super Shorty.

Then, a couple of years ago, Black Aces Tactical introduced a series of 12 gauges “firearms” that were not legally shotguns and, though their barrels fell well below the 16-inch benchmark for shotties, since they remained over 26-inches long, allowed buyers to pick one up without the nearly year-long wait and stamps required for SBSs and AOWs. Big name shotgun maker Mossberg caught on to this concept last year with their Shockwave firearm, and Remington jumped aboard with both feet this Spring with the Tac-14.

I’ve had one on T&E for the past several months, and it is a blast to shoot– even one handed.

About laststandonzombieisland

Let me introduce myself. I am a bit of a conflict junkie. I am fascinated by war and warfare, assassination, personal protection and weaponry ranging from spud guns and flame throwers to thermonuclear bombs and Soviet-trained Ebola monkeys. In short, if it’s violent or a tool to create violence it is kind of my thing. I have written a few thousand articles on the dry encyclopedia side for such websites as Guns.com, University of Guns, Outdoor Hub, Tac-44, History Times, Big Game Hunter, Glock Forum, Firearms Talk.com, and Combat Forums; as well as for print publications like England Expects, and Strike First Strike Fast. Several magazines such as Sea Classics, Military Historian and Collector, Mississippi Sportsman and Warship International have carried my pieces. Additionally I am on staff as a naval consultant and writer for Eye Spy Intelligence Magazine. Currently I am working on several book projects including an alternative history novel about the US-German War of 1916, and a biography of Southern gadfly and soldier of fortune Bennett Doty. My first novel, about the coming zombie apocalypse was released in 2012 by Necro Publications and can be found at Amazon.com as was the prequel, Chimera-44. I am currently working on book two of that series: "Pirates of the Zombie Coast." In my day job I am a contractor for the U.S. federal government in what could best be described as the ‘Force Protection’ field. In this I am an NRA-certified firearms, and less-than-lethal combat instructor.
