Remington 870 TAC-14 Hardwood

The Remington 870 TAC-14 is one of many firearms released since 2017 that resemble, but legally are not, sawed off shotguns.  Since the receiver is never registered as a shotgun, rifle, or pistol, as long as it is 26” long and does not have a pistol grip or rifle stock, it is a firearm and thus legal in most states.  It also is not considered an NFA item, so it does not require all the hassle required for NFA items (machine guns, short barreled rifles, short barreled shotguns).  These guns are very popular with both Mossberg and Remington offering several 14” barrel variations based upon the Mossberg 590 and Remington 870.  Remington has even just released a semi-auto 14” 12 Gauge firearm.

This firearm is based upon the classic Remington 870 pump action, a well proven and very reliable design.  With a 5 + 1 capacity and being a few inches longer than two feet, it packs a lot of power in a small package.  It has a 14” cylinder bore barrel with the full length 5 round magazine below.  There is a bird’s head grip at the rear and a large sling attachment at the front, prevent ones hand from sliding in front of the barrel when firing it.  Except for the barrel being 0.5” shorter, this gun is almost exactly like the U.S. Marshal’s Witness Protection Shotguns from the 1980s and 1990s.
