New for 2019: Black Aces Tactical Pro Series S Max Shotgun

posted on June 16, 2019

New from Black Aces Tactical in 2019 is the company's new Pro Series S Max line of 12-gauge semi-automatic shotguns. The S Max features many of the same highly sought-after options available on more expensive semi-automatic 12-gauge models, such as a complete set of chokes, extended magazine tube and dual sling points, but consumers can get all of these features at a highly attractive price.

Rather than being made of black synthetic materials, the Pro Series S has real walnut furniture for the stock and fore-end, which is available in several different finish options to fit end-user needs.

The Pro Series S Max has a 6061-T6 aluminum receiver with a nickel-plated bolt, charging handle and bolt-release button. The shotgun has an extended magazine tube with a 6+1 shell capacity, with an 18.5-inch barrel and a 39.75-inch overall length. The shotgun ships with either a normal-length stock for firing from the shoulder and has an additional shorter, birds-head grip to employ for close-quarters use or for compact storage and transport.
