The SKO 12ga automatic Shorty is everything it is advertised to be. You must break this weapon in and be patient. It is made with such tight tolerances that it is very stiff out of the box. I put at least 30 3” hot re-loads through it before it loosened up. Even the magazines need breaking in. I also sprayed a shot of Remington lube on the action. My Remington 870 is back in the safe and my Shorty is by my side.
I bought this because of the pistol grip, easy front mag feed, ar style features, easy to maneuver around narrow breaches.
I've purchased a SKO Shorty.....
This shotgun was bought to replace my long time companion... Remington 870 I've taken it out and am amazed at how accurate it is, and very controllable... The mags fit perfectly, and after 200 rds, ( so far ) I've had no malfunctions...using Hornady Critical Defense 00 buck 70mm 690 BAR...This is now my bedside partner... Very easy to maneuver, and all and all just an awesome gun.....
Thanks for filling the need...
I would recomend this product to anyone looking for home defense weapons. It's the perfect size for any type of personal defense needs. Has ability to take high amounts of ammo as well. So effectively, as a semi-auto, it can solve any kind of close range personal defense scenario.
Must follow directions and ONLY use HIGH velocity ammo.
I have been looking for that ”PERFECT” Self Defense shotgun for over 10 years as a replacement for my old pump. It was The Standard Manufacturing, SKO SHORTY at our local gun shop that caught my eye instantly! A BadAss looking 12 Gauge with a box magazine than held up to 3” shells! I was very impressed with the design, and built quality, which is a deciding factor for me. The SKO SHORTY never leaves my side.. The perfect Firearm to have by your side at home, where safety is an absolute must. This Firearm is easy to clean and very RELIABLE! It’s also Well Built in the USA! Accessories Galore are Available! You get that “Piece of Mind“ priceless, feeling...
Shoot Standard Manufacturing Firearms and Your going Love Them!!
Appears to be the best magazine feed shotgun on the market.
Short and sweet, just like the shotgun, fun to shoot and no problems, cycles perfect with slugs and buck shot. Looks cool also...
It is the best preforming shotgun I have ever owned. Not once has it jambed or any other malfunctions since have owned it. Just keep it clean and let it eat. Adding a S333 to my collection would be sweet.
