When the KSG first came out I got on a couple of pre-order lists
One site had them for sale at a price under MSRP so I signed up and paid with my CC
Number 81 on the list.
6 months later I was down to number 74.
They just were not getting the KSG from their distributer.
I canceled my order and thought about buying one on GB, but they were selling for $1200 to $1300 still.
Just couldn't see paying that for an $800 MSRP gun.
I pretty much gave up on owning a KSG for the next one or two years.
Then I saw the UTS-15 being sold direct from the manufacturer.
with a ship date of 4 weeks
being sold at MSRP of $1200
with a free set of iron sights which drops the price of the shotgun about $150.
Now Im thinking Im actually getting the gun for $1050.
Plus it comes with a muzzle flash breaching choke. Thats extra.
Plus it loads from the top which seamed less awkward than the bottom loading KSG.
Plus It will feed the entire 15 rounds without having to manipulate a switch.
I liked that feature too.
So I ordered one.
I can easily see the UTS-15 attaining the popularity of the KSG and selling for a premium.
In fact I toyed with the idea of getting 2
But in conversations with UTAS-USA I learned a Lefty version was coming out, and a semi auto version was being worked on, and even a 44 mag version was being considered.
So I figured Id better just get the one and save my money.
