KS7

[Last Edit: 3/14/2019 11:48:05 PM EDT by Dferg10]
I just picked up this KS7 from my ffl. I found a seller with 5 on GB with a Buy It Now price of $499, plus $30 shipping. It feels very well made. It’s real light and the action is smooth. I cycled some A-Zoom snap caps through a bunch of times and it seems to work fine. I hope to get to break it in this weekend, along with a Tac-13, but I may not be able to until the following weekend. So far, it feels great and I see no issues. I thought I might not like the carry handle, but I do.

If it's like the KSG it's not, but you can get an adapter for the muzzle that will let it take choke tubes and the Salvo.

Take that carry handle off and put on a picatinny rail with a micro red dot optic!

I'll be honest: I like the carry handle.

You will then need something to cover the back of the barrel to prevent putting your cheek directly on the barrel. The KSG heat shield supposedly works. Im hoping Keltec comes out with a longer pic rail.

It looks cool as is.

Curious about the recoil. The other double tube KSG kicks like a mad mule.

I'm excited to see how the KS7 performs.

I really like the carry handle / integral sighting plane design. Never warmed up to optics or irons for shotguns.

If the heavier KSG kicks like a mad mule the lighter KS7 should be worse.

Got one as well from my LGS, the one and only that they received. Can’t wait to shoot.

K so I'm prob a pussy but fwiw ...I shot one the other day with Walmart target load Winchester, had to put that mother down ... Kick is an understatement sweet gun but too much kick for me, friend of mine who bought it also couldn't get mini shells to run through it either( kept trying to double chamber ) don't know what would be different on that part from a regular ksg, mine runs mini shells fine , but again it feels and looks great (OD green and all) till you fire it ... I thought he had 3" magnum shells in it damn.. also friend says he's parting ways with it this weekend

Initial Impressions
It’s light and will probably kick hard. It’s also typical Kel-tec in that it feels cheaply made. Will see how long it holds up. Fortunately got it from Davidson’s with a warranty to supplement the Kel Tec warranty.

Chamber and bore were rough with some black parkerization in the chamber. I got it out with a flex hone.

Added a spare Vang comp stainless mag follower and Benelli mag spring retainer to prevent the mag spring from popping out whenever I remove the barrel. Also a swivel stud for a sling was added to the mag cap.

Also added the pic rail, KSG heat shield, ext butt pad and made a crude kydex receiver cover. I may add a rubber pad over the kydex later.

Will try it to shoot it in a few wks. Not sure if I like it better than my Shockwave SBS yet.

I am getting double feeds with snap caps and live ammo. Looks like the chisel shaped cartridge release is a hair too short and allows two rounds through. This is going back to Keltec. Very disappointing but not unexpected in this first generation release.

Got to handle one a few days ago at LGS (479.00)

Few thoughts handling it

Pro's

1. Points well. -
2. light
3. Carry handle sight is pretty decent - Still would want to drop a RDS on a pic rail but the carry handle was much better than I expected
4. Cycles easy - just as easy as an 870 or 500
5. trigger was light enough

Con's

1. Damn loud - probably the loudest cycling shotgun I have ever handled - I am talking annoyingly loud. I racked the action and everyone in the damn store looked at me. - (Joe Biden approved loud shotgun )
2. Buttpad seems super thin and made out of substandard material - needs a limbsaver style pad - I bet it kicks like a mule
3. no chokes - obvious but would be nice if it came with some
4. barrel length - I would have liked to see a 20"-22" barrel. The extra ~2" + choke would be nice (totally subjective and opinion).

Overall I was impressed. Still felt like a cheap gun but the features make it highly tempting.

I'm noticing a theme with Kel Tec's recent offerings;
Link Posted: 5/25/2019 3:41:06 AM EDT
Prices are coming down to about what I had hoped. I got one at the local shop a couple days ago for the asking price of $409. What the heck. Even a KelTec is worth a try at $409.

Did you have to get screws or did the ones from the handle work?

You use the original screws. The rail does not include mounting screws.

I had one of those, a choke adapter, and the 6 lug wrench to take the barrel nut off in a cart but wasn't sure if there was something else I needed. Then I decided the KS7 hasn't even been delivered yet. I'm going to wait before I start trying to change it. I still want the choke tubes though.
