    DP-12 vs. Keltec KSG

    Been thinking about getting one or the other. Not sure which. The KSG is roughly half the price of the DP-12, which appeals to me. Your expert advice would be appreciated.

    DP-12 is amazing. I actually had to send my Keltec back and get a refund bc of all the failures.

    Used the $ to buy DP-12 and love that fucking thing.

      Does the Keltec have reliability issues?

        If you call shooting your hand of reliability issues than yes.

          The polymer rail had a vertical grip attached and that's what causef the rail to snap. Hand got in front of the muzzle and BOOM.

          There are other options for grips and there are extended aluminum rails that attach to the polymer ones. Both are great but require you to learn a new manual of arms to use. The two rounds per pump of the DP12 throws me off

            The Keltec received a lot of bad reviews when it first came out.

            This is a comparison video. It is long (30 minutes).

              They started to make a UTAS that only holds 9 rounds total. It's pretty slick.

              In my mind the DP-12 is pretty heavy.

                  bro i've put like an inch on each arm and two inches on my legs, all while dropping an inch from my waist.

                  the increase in calorie intake was painful in both the time it took out of my day to eat, the increase in my grocery bills, and the time spent cooking.

                  is there a "do you even lift bro" meme?

                  or as one of my buddies once told me...."dude you weigh less than 180 lbs....your six pack doesn't count!"

                  but in all seriousness the dp-12 is a man gun. part of the reason for that weight is how solid the receiver is. everything on the ksg feels plastic fantastic compared to handling a dp-12.

                  me personally? I'll stick to my wood stock 870. found it in the corner at volko, it's older than me, and super slick. i'm confident in its ability to get the job done.

                      KSGs: we've sold more than 100 of them. We have now sent one in for a repair. Never had the first gen models, all second gens. Sounds pretty good to me.

                      DP-12s; First LI gun store to have them I think, and we've sold many of them, haven't counted, but certainly more than 40. One customer has over 2000 rounds through his, documented all different rounds. Slugs, buck , birdshot. No failure to feed in any position. Intentionally trying to get it to fail for a video and he can't make it fail. Brought it here after shooting 2000 rounds to have us clean it for him, its very first cleaning! Never saw a dirtier gun, still working fine.

                      The DP-12 is heavy. The KSG is not.

                      The guy who shot his hand off with the KSG was using and aftermarket grip, not the KSG handguard. He modified the gun and paid a dear price. Not Keltec's fault.

                        I ran through 40 slugs in my ksg first range trip without a single hiccup. Of course the shit ammo looked like I was firing a muzzleloader. Got a lot of looks at calverton. LOL my ksg is bone stock, I'm not attaching anything that might break off on the slide.

                        Eta: mine was the first that Karp transfered before becoming a dealer.

                          Never had much of an interest in these. I've played with them a bit at the range, but my 870's have always been my go-to sgn's.

                          But the KSG is starting to pique my interest.....
