Remington’s TAC-14 firearm is a popular way to tie up a lot of firepower into a compact little package. While it may look like a short-barreled shotgun, it is, in fact, considered to be a “firearm” under current NFA regulations.

For SHOT Show 2018, Remington has taken the TAC-14 firearm and updated with a look that hearkens back to the classic “Witness Protection” sawed-off shotguns used by Federal Marshal Service agents to provide them with the punch of 12-gauge shotgun in an easy-to-carry size.

The short-barreled Witness Protection shotguns were a staple of firearms media in the '80s and '90s, and they also appeared in the hands of actors playing Federal Marshals in movies like “Eraser” and TV shows such as “Justified,” giving it a place in firearms lore that goes beyond most shotguns and makes it an iconic firearm that symbolizes a certain time and place in gun history.

The Remington TAC-14 Hardwood combines the ease of purchase of the TAC-14 firearm with the classic good looks of the Witness Protection shotguns to produce a gun that looks great and is easy to wield in tight confined spaces. The TAC-14 Hardwood is a 12-gauge firearm that has a 14-inch, cylinder-bore barrel and has a 5+1 magazine capacity. The gun has a sling swivel in the front and rear and comes with a nylon sling for easy carry. In all other aspects, it’s essentially identical to the original TAC-14 firearm that it’s based upon.

The TAC-14 firearm is slightly longer than it’s short-barreled shotgun predecessor, but other than that, it looks and feels like the classic shotgun of the Marshal’s service, and with an MSRP of $499, you can get the trusted firepower of a government agent without having to take out a government loan to get one.

BallistiClean 00 Buck Review

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
