Box fed 12-gauge shotgun is the rage right now on social media. But box fed shotguns at the world’s largest maker of 1911’s is a different thing. Youtuber Legally Armed America had a chance to be the first gun channels to receive one of the VR60’s from Rock Island Amory and it looks like they had a blast! Rock Island Armory are famously known for their 1911. But in this case they came out with an AR-style, box fed 12-gauge shotgun.
Rock Island didn’t just think of making one but listened to their customers. Most customers wanted this in a AR platform as a tactical personal defense shotgun. All the features are where it needs to be to make this AR shotgun functional but dummy down making it very easy to operate. Here are some of those features: -Charging handle is an external handle (big size, inverted) well placed on the side making it easier to use while under pressure. -Sights are similar to the standard AR fixed sights. -Grips have an ergo type grip feel. -Accessory rail offers you to custom with vertical handle, lights, lasers and grenade launchers (joke). Though the box fed only holds 5 rounds, most home defenders can tell you reloading another 5 rounds only takes a second. Lets not forget this tactical shotgun can also be used for hunting as well. What is surprising is that this awesome tactical shotgun from Rock Island goes for $489. Who wants to get some?
In our latest “Gun Bullies” installment, we took our Rock Island Armory 1911 and froze it in a block of ice for 3 days. We then took it out and blasted it out of the ice with buckshot shot from a Remington 870 (our next victim). This was all after being tossed into a pond and later blown up with 2 pounds of tannerite. By the way, our Glock 21 frame is still AWOL from the tannerite.
Legally Armed America recently took the brand new ARMSCOR .22 TCM round and Rock Island Armory .22 TCM 1911 out to the Louisiana Tactical Police Officers Association Conference where Jabo with Ronin Combat Strategies was working with a bunch of Louisiana’s finest SWAT guys to see what they thought of the new round and handgun chambered for it. The handgun is a great combination of mag capacity and nonexistent recoil. Watch as the SWAT guys take this cool new round and gun for a ride!
