    Yeah, I actually like the looks of it. Of course I own, and see nothing wrong with the looks of, the Hi Point 995TS.

    You happen to know what the price tag is on one of those bad boys?

    If it's anything like the price of 995TS, I'd buy one in a heartbeat



    Edited to say: Nevermind, looks like about a grand....

    It's really no uglier than the KSG, and pretty much the same price, but at least the UTAS has more capacity.

    Knock off of the KSG .. Early ones had a lot of issues .. Same price or more the KSG

    "The UTS-15 shotgun has had issues from day one, and it continues to have a few design flaws. But despite those hiccups, I definitely see a market for something like this. A “high capacity” shotgun would work great for home defense, something that you could load with 14 rounds and then not worry about ever reloading in a home invasion scenario. But if you ever did need to reload, you’d pretty much be screwed. And on the range, it would definitely be an eye-catching range toy that everyone would want to try out.

    But for me, that $1,200 MSRP (still over $1,000 retail) is too high to justify. For reference, that’s more than an FNH USA SLP MK I or a Benelli M2 semi-auto. Heck, you could buy two Mossberg 930s and duct tape them together for that price. There’s no doubt that this is a nifty gun, but it’s not $1,200 worth of nift."

    A shotgun is best when light and fast swinging.
