    Sulun TAC-12

    As someone who always loved the Remington 1187 police with 14'' barrel i owned one for many years up until i had to hand it in when the E-cat laws were done away with. Another gun i always wanted to own was a M4 Benelli 14" with pistol grip stock and collapsible butstock but that was well out of my reach and not available in NZ. Since the raft of new gun laws i saw that Delta Mike www.deltamike.co.nz was selling a clone of the Benelli. after checking the youtube videos i saw that it exceeded the Benelli because it could handle light loads and all the parts were interchangeable. For $1199.00 i figured it was a cheap purchase to make as if it didn't work i could return it.
    After a day of using 250 7/8 clay loads, 125 00sg 36gr loads along with 20 Aguilla 7/8 1.75" slugs loads the gun never failed to shoot or eject. mind you i hadn't broke it down or cleaned it. when i did break it down and cleaned it all loads had been fired through the mod choke (gun comes with 5 chokes). Since then i've put another 1000 rounds of 28gr 9.5 Club28 loads through it and it always cycles....so now its pride of place in my cabinet. its not the same tool as my Miroku but if i need something to never fail with any ammo or for self defence or killing a hog in the bush i will grab the TAC-12.
    Now i'm saving up for another one with a 28 inch barrel and convention stock for duck hunting.

    its the gun in the middle. (all guns available from deltamike.co.nz ) it also comes with a mag limiter behind the mag tube nut (easy to remove or replace). and breakdown doesn't require tools.

    Very cool shotty. I have modified my old mossy 500a along the same lines. Barrel was rusty so took it down to 14 inch and over lockdown remove the black on the receiver and polished the shit out of it. Also fitted collapsible stock and tactical forend which I swap between that and my 590a1 as the mood takes me. Would like to track down a wooden stock and forearm for the 590 and a heat shield and turn it into ww2 trench gun lookalike.

    Why did you hand in your 1187? They were not affected by the new laws.

    Magazine extension. Plus they were paying a good profit for them, that's why I handed in my 1187 and x2 1100s

    Because when i got it pistol grips were outlawed so i put i on my E-cat licence. Since no E-cat now exist; no E-cat guns
