    My Brothers new Firearm company

    My brother has been working on this for several years, designing a 12 gauge shotgun based on a DPMS 308 receiver set. I have been offering technical advice since the beginning and am eagerly awaiting my demo set. I think it would be an awesome shotgun for LE, HD, 3 gun etc.

    Will the upper retro fit to the DPMS AR10 or is it a stand alone system?

    Me like. The weight distribution with 10 rounds (or 5) would be much better than having the rounds strung out under the length of the barrel.

    My VR80 balances pretty well even with the twenty round drum. Much quicker swing with the five round mag.

    Good idea @Bad Bob , I wish your brother well with his endeavor. I will eagerly await the production and offering. It would be really interesting to go quail hunting with one of my friends and pull this out instead of my light 20 gauge. Now I'm wondering where my 12 gauge Winchokes are stashed.

    I know I'm a pain in the butt ..... and I'm also really getting stir crazy bored.
    But I re-wrote his first paragraph for him:




    The Wilkinson Tactical line of shotguns and rifles presents an unparalleled level of performance and reliability.

    We partner with industry leading suppliers: all our bolt carrier groups are Fail Zero proprietary EXO process Nickel Boron plated. We couple them with a MIL-PRF-46010 Class2 Dry Film lubricant bonded permanently to the inside of the upper receiver. That means you get never fail performance from an upper you never oil and clean with just a tissue Ė round after round.

    Upper receivers, Lower receivers, and handguards are all MIL-A-8625 Type III anodize finish.

    I should add though ..... I really like his shottie.
    Comments above are correct, it's likely going to be an easy weapon to use.

    Absolutely it is a DPMS compatible system, you can even get it as a combo.

    Yes.

    The basic shotgun is MSRP $2038 and the Premium is MSRP $2358, The CR12Pi (pistol) is the same price as the premium. The advantage to the American consumer is American veteran owned and made.

    We are in production now. If you have a retailer that wishes to be a dealer, I can help with that also.

    It is. I have only shot the pre production model. I am waiting for him to ship me one.

    I like it, I own a DPMS LR 308. Great rifle.
    Keep us informed I may be interested in getting one.
    Glad to see some people are not wallowing in pity right now and thinking about the future.
    Your brother sounds like the kind of guy who will be successful
