Another 12-Gauge AR15

Wilkinson Tactical, LLC introduced what it calls “the first major innovation in tactical shotgun in years.” The CR-12 brings the proven Stoner M-16 design to a 12-gauge platform, with improvements to safety, performance and reliability.

This12-gauge 2 ¾ inch semi-automatic, box magazine-fed AR-type shotgun has an 18.5 inch barrel, adjustable stock, free floating hand guard and tactical sling ring. Other features include nickel boron high precision bolt carrier, trigger group and internal components. There’s a double-set high precision trigger that defaults to standard tactical trigger, and controls are fully ambidextrous. Two 5-round Wilkinson Tactical PMags come standard with each shotgun and an EOTEC holographic site is available as an option.
