    I am a bit of a fan of High Capacity Modern Shotguns. Some say they are a gimmick or range toy or a barrage of other despicable remarks.

    I think they are a great leap forward in technology and functionality. I have owned a KSG (did not like it and gave it to my brother whom loves it), still in my possession I have the UTAS UTS15,DP12 and I just ordered the Foatech Origin 12 SBV all black. Looking forward to getting it in 5 months, ordered 2 10 round magazines.

    What High Capacity Modern Shotguns do you have?

    You can put me with your brother who loves the KSG.
    You may not have given it a fair chance. It requires you to "un-learn" some things that you do working a conventional pump shotgun to work it right.
    I added a modified choke and a green-circle reticle sight to mine and it became deadly for skeet.
    Enough so that the owners of $2600 over-under "skeet-guns" got the rules changed to include a minimum overall gun length, not just barrel length.
    (A shorter gun can sweep faster to target than a longer one. Basically, it worked better than even the super-light-weight long guns they had).
    Add that to the fact that it only needed to be reloaded every 2 target stations instead of every 2 shots, and they were not happy!

    They told me I was "cheating".
    I told 'em they had the wrong gun:D
    ...then they got pissed. lmao.gif

    Lol.. I did give it a chance. I believe that firearms should be enjoyable in their natural state, if it does not function properly thensend back for resolution with mfg. The KSG hurt to shoot, the brass hitting my wrist would make it knot and blead, would only fire with long sleeves and in AZ that is not very comfortable. My brother invested in shell diverter, check well pad, red dot / green dot reticle, etc. Thus he truly loves it... for me the UTAS UTS 15 was way more fun to shoot, then I got the DP 12 and it was AMAZING! They both in my OP run great in their standard config. UTAS had to go back once for repair but has been flawless since. May send it back in for all the latest upgrades.. The DP12 ran with 0 issues right out of the gate. We will see how the Origin 12 SBV works out...

    When the Origin 12 comes in, post some pics of it.
    Curious about it huh.gif

    Yeah, for years we were taught not to "chicken-wing" a gun when we shoot.
    When shooting the KSG just a little chicken-wing only during the shucking operation fixes the ejected shell hitting. It becomes natural after a very short time. Like leaning over to pass gas.
    :oopsie:
    The shell deflector makes reloading one of the tubes difficult and it really isn't needed.

    Will post pics when I get it. Probably will not buy a 30 round drum but might spring for a 20 rounder... not sure just yet. I will order multiple 10 round mags have two ordered already may get 4 more before I get the origin.

    I hate my UTS 15!!! Should of bought KSG, or DP12. My buddy has the Origin 12. It’s the coolest shotgun I’ve ever fired. I want it so bad!!!

    Sorry to hear that you hate ur UTS 15! I love mine. One of my favourite shotguns. I like the alternating feeding between mag tubes, and being able to select either tube on fly and then go back to alternating feed. KSG was not to my liking... DP12 is Awesome, 1 pump then 2 shots (pull trigger for each shot), then repeat. 16 rounds go really fast.

    It is the size of the uts 15 I don’t like. Also mine had to be sent back to be fixed. Once returned there has been no feeding issues.

    Mine had to be sent back as well, customer service was excellent. I like the size and weight of the UTS 15. DP12 is very heavy in comparison. Length they are about the same. Inch or two difference. I guess you could always sell it and buy KSG or DP12...

    Just don't be in a hurry.
    Word has got out and people know what a monstrosity the UTS-15 is compared to others.
    Same firepower:

    (a 'small' difference)
    Last 130 of 'em I saw on GB had zero bids.... and they were NIB.

    My latest acquisition...

    Origin 12 SBV
    Have not shot it yet, have 2 10 round mags and one 5 round mag. Saving up for a 30 round drum and maybe a 20 round drum in future...
