KS-12T FDE SHOTGUN
NOW IN FLAT DARK EARTH: A PRACTICAL SHOTGUN FOR HOME DEFENSE OR LAW ENFORCEMENT
Variety is the spice of life. Flat Dark Earth was never on Mikhail Kalashnikov’s color palette when he designed the AK-47 and AKM…..but it is on ours!
The Kalashnikov USA™ KS-12T Flat Dark Earth (FDE) shotgun is our 12-gauge semi-automatic shotgun based on the popular Russian Saiga shotguns. However, our version is built in the United States by American workers using US made parts and materials. In addition to the different furniture color, the KS-12T FDE model differs from our standard KS-12 by incorporating the popular M4-style adjustable buttstock (and six-position receiver extension) in place of the KS-12’s fixed buttstock. This allows users to adjust the length of pull to better fit their body type or install aftermarket stocks with different cheek welds or features. This is particularly useful for shooters wishing to install optical sights. The KS-12T FDE shotgun also incorporates an adjustable pistol grip, a threaded barrel with detachable flash suppressor, a tri-rail forend to fit illumination or laser aiming devices, and an AK style side-mounted optics rail.
The KS-12T FDE accepts both standard 2 ¾” and 3” magnum 12 gauge cartridges. The gun’s innovative and adjustable gas system allows the use of everything from low recoil target loads, to birdshot, buckshot or slugs.
The total length of the KS-12T FDE is 42.5” with the buttstock fully extended and 38.5” when collapsed. It ships with one 10 round magazine but alternative capacity box and drum magazines are available. Most currently available Saiga accessories will also work on the KS-12T FDE including magazines, drums, muzzle devices and chokes.
This firearm is not California compliant.
RUGGED, RELIABLE, AND READY TO PROTECT…AND ENJOY
Our KS-12T FDE is built on the proven long stroke gas system of the legendary AK-47 designed by Mikhail Kalashnikov. Over 100 million AKs continue to serve around the world and its iconic design has been incorporated into other modern firearms. With its “ready for anything” design, the KS-12T FDE is well suited for defensive use but can also be used for hunting or a fun day at the range. Using light 12 gauge loads, the stock and gas system can be adjusted to fit smaller or recoil sensitive shooters.
