First Look: American Tactical Bull-Dog Shotgun

posted on May 27, 2020

American Tactical is introducing a new shotgun model, called the Bull-Dog. American Tactical is a United States based manufacturer and worldwide importer of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment, and the Bull-Dog is its latest import from Turkey. The shotgun has quick acquisition flip-up sights, a 3-inch chamber and a 3-piece choke tube set, as well as an AR-style charging handle and Picatinny and M-Lok rails for your tactical purposes.

The shotgun offers a contemporary look and modular design while still bringing reliability and functionality to all kinds of different shooters. The Bull-Dog is a semi-automatic 12-gauge shotgun with a 3-inch chamber. It has an 18.5-inch barrel and overall length of 26 inches. The bullpup design of the Bull-Dog makes it easy to carry and maneuver inside tight spaces, while still maintaining the punch of a full-sized shotgun and staying within all applicable gun regulations. There is a Picatinny rail system on the bottom of the gun which allows the shooter to use an extra magazine as a foregrip. The shotgun also has Picatinny rails on the sides of the receiver to mount lights and other accessories, along with a Picatinny rail on top of the receiver to mount an optic. In addition to this, the Bull-Dog has removable adjustable open sights, an adjustable cheek rest and features a patent-pending AR-15-style charging handle.
