Featuring a 13-inch NFA-compliant barrel, Big Green’s shotgun that isn’t has a five-round magazine and V3 semi-auto heritage.
Announced quietly on Tuesday, the Tac-13 builds on Remington’s success in the past two years with their Tac-14 series of pump guns but instead of a lineage derived from the vaunted model 870, the newest scattergun is based on the company’s V3 semi-auto line. 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.
“From the comfort of your home, to the remote wilderness the V3 Tac-13 offers the assurance that no matter what you encounter in the world you have adequate means to defend yourself or those you love from any threat,” says the company.
Using the V3’s VersaPort gas system, the Tac-13 is billed as coupling both reliable feeding and low recoil using everything from light field loads to full-power buck and slugs.
Notably, unlike the Tac-14 but similar to the Mossberg Shockwave series, the new Remington offering is complete with a hand strap on the front grip to help mitigate muzzle flip. Photos show a short accessory rail on the forearm and the top of the receiver drilled and tapped for additional rails.
With a black oxide finish, synthetic stock and a front bead sight, the 5.94-pound Tac-13 has an MSRP of $915.
Shooting Illustrated managed to lay their hands on one for some range time, which they showed off this week in the below clip on social media.
