If you’ve ever shot a suppressed scattergun, you’ll know why this is so exciting.
Several years ago, I had the opportunity to shoot one of the very first silencers designed for a shotgun…and although it reduced the recoil and report in a very gratifying way, the can at the end of the shotgun made it awkward to aim. “Someday,” I thought to myself, “someone will start building these into the shotgun barrel, and then I’ll start filling out that NFA paperwork.” That someday is today, because Phoenix Weaponry just announced the launch of their new integrally suppressed shotgun line. These factory-suppressed scatterguns are subject to NFA rules, so if you’re interested you will need to go through the NFA procedure to get your license…and I am.
There are several levels you can choose from, starting with a base model “Cindy,” which is either a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500 and adding the integrally suppressed barrel. For a truly new experience with a shotgun, step up to the “Eliza,” a model that has been entirely enhanced along with the integral suppressor. In addition to these models, customers can also have their shotguns suppressed or enhanced. This system works on any pump-action, bolt-action, semi-auto or full-auto shotgun.
After years of testing and development along with tens of thousands of shotgun rounds Phoenix Weaponry Owner Aaron Cayce said, “We have achieved the perfect balance between sound suppression, ability to change your chokes, and ammo functionality up to 3.5-inch shells. You can use everything from buckshot to birdshot and even slugs through our integrally suppressed shotguns.”
Phoenix Weaponry starts by using the factory shotgun barrel, then removes the sight rib where the suppressor will mount to and machines ‘sporting clays style’ ports into the sides of the barrel. The rear sleeve cap is then installed along with the front suppressor threads and the 6-inch Delta Mono Core suppressor core is then installed. It’s then finished off with the suppressor sleeve and end cap. System total weight adds 17-ounces to the firearm and 5-inches in overall length.
The Eliza, which is pictured above, is built on a Remington 870 with Magpul, Hogue, or Mesa Tactical furniture, a side-saddle shell holder, and your choice of DuraCoat SL 4-color winter or spring/fall camouflage. MSRP $2,550. Click here for more information.
