Some of you might have seen the Sons of Guns episode where Red Jacket Firearms created or invented the first rail mounted door buster shotgun that could be mounted on an AR-15. Red Jacket does make some amazing stuff and a friend of mine has had a few builds done by them. However, in this particular case there is plenty of evidence that you shouldn’t believe everything you see on TV. Hopefully that concept does not come as a surprise to you… Otherwise you might believe in the insanity of gun control. I am fighting myself not to go off on a tangent about how absurd gun control is.
Okay, back to the topic, kinda. The rail mounted shotgun here was designed by Ira M. Kay and granted US Patent 6418655 on July 16, 2002. This is one AR-15 accessory I would really like to get my hands on. Instead of mounting five flashlights, two optics, lasers, grips and bipods I want a semi-auto shotgun! Unfortunately, I am unaware of this every being produced. Thanks to gun control this would be a SBS, short barrel shotgun, and that probably is a big reason why Ira M. Kay’s great design never made it’s way into your local FFL.
