Why hello there, Mr. Whippit
Last year Remington debuted their new Tac-14 NFA-compliant non-shotgun “firearm” complete with a 14-inch barrel and bird’s head Shockwave pistol grip. I was the first outdoor writer to get to see it and have one of the first couple made. Overall, I found it pretty neat.
Now, fast forward about 18 months and Remmy has a new take on the same concept. Chopping down their V3 semi-auto shotgun line (which replaced the venerable 11-48/1100/1187 autoloader series), they now have the Tac-13, which was quietly released this week.
Standard with a Shockwave grip and a 13-inch light contour cylinder bore barrel while keeping an overall length of just 26.5-inches, Remington bills the new gun as a compact personal protection piece and has a 5+1 capacity.
MSRP is $915, which will probably translate to an over-the-counter-price at your local retailer of about $699.

For comparison, Black Aces Tactical in Florida has been selling 4+1 capacity vintage 1100s chopped down to use a 12-inch barrel for $499, so there is that.
