Legacy Sports International announces the new Escort Gladius models of tactical home defense shotguns. These new models are 20-gauge versions of the company's MP/P-A and MP/S-A pump and semi-automatic 12 gauge models it has sold for the past few years. There are two semi-automatic models and one pump model.

These shotguns feature a black polymer stock with a cushioned, vertical pistol grip, an adjustable comb and a two-round shell holder. Fore-ends are lengthened and ergonomically shaped, and include a Picatinny-style accessory Tri-rail. The fore-end of either Gladius also has a forward down-grip. Receivers are CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum and come with an upper Picatinny-style rail and fully adjustable ghost ring rear sight.

Barrels are cylinder bored and chambered for 3-inch, 20-gauge magnum rounds and are mounted with an elevated fiber optic front sight with elevation adjustment. Barrels on both models have heat shrouds and muzzle brakes. The semi-auto model features Escort's SMART valve technology for sub-second cycle rates, and the FAST loading system. The pump model has a short throw cycle that allows for rapid reloads and comes in a black anodized finish. Both models have 5 round magazine tubes and low density recoil pads.

MSRP: $579.00 Gladius semi-automatic, $485.00 Gladius Pump.
