    Question Panzer Arms BP-12 Bullpup Shotgun

    I am thinking about getting one of the Panzer BP12 shotguns. Does anyone have any experience with it? I've watched a bunch of videos about it and they seen to run fine once broken it. It only has a 1 year warranty, which kind of bothers me...Let me know what you think..

    Well, it's certainly a cool-looking firearm, but I'm really not sure where it has any advantage over an ordinary shotgun. I mean, it's shorter in OAL, but then again, so is the Mossberg 590 Shockwave and Remington TAC-14, which are substantially lower in price, not to mention smaller in overall dimensions, and lighter in weight. Also, it holds an equal amount of rounds in the magazine compared to the Shockwave.
    That being said, I wouldn't worry too much about having only a 1-Year Limited Warranty. I'm unaware of any shotgun in current production which offers a longer warranty than that, so if you're confident enough in the brand to buy one in the first place, then you're confident enough to do so regardless of the warranty period. (A warranty is only as good as the company who backs it, after all.)

    If I were you, I'd browse some videos on YouTube or Full30, see what folks who have owned/fired them think.

    The one thing that bothers m about bull pups is the cartridge going off right next to your face. If there is a catastrophic failure your face is right there. At least with a rifle the chamber is out a little from your face.

    Not a deal breaker for me, just something to think about.

    If I was in the market, I would consider the Key-Tec KSG. I know several people who own them and like them a lot. Higher capacity, chamber well away from the face, etc. IIRC, one version enables you to load nearly 20 Aguila 1.75 inch shells. Looks like a real "crowd pleaser."

    it's a pump, but the new KS7 from KelTec runs mini-shells for 12 rounds, something the semi's probably can't do

    Bobbojama, you should get a commission.
    I wasn't even in the market for a gun, but that Bullpup-12 is just TOO COOL!!!
    I spent a day reading reviews, and price checking, and that offer by Classic Firearms was too good to pass up.
    I ordered one an hour ago.
    It sounds like it doesn't like rounds that are too light, nor too heavy.
    Built mainly for the standard wt. 12 guage buckshot.
    That's fine by me.

    Someone would have to pay me a great many thousands of dollars to own one of them.

    I received my BP12 three weeks ago and love it... If I would have waited I could have saved $50, as it went on sale at Classic. I contacted Classic about the drop in price and respectfully complained.... They issued me a $25 in-store credit... Great place to do business!

    That was nice of them.
    Not a $50 refund, but better than a stick in the eye.
    Possibly get an additional magazine with that.
