How long before we get a "firearm" version?

That'd probably be a heap of fun. Looks pretty damn beefy though.

SKO Shorty. I don't know if it's a PGO shotgun or Firearm.



Hopefully that rear plug is threaded for AR buffer tubes.

Just as an aside......

I've noticed something odd about Standard manufacturing Company.
If you read the owner's manual for the DP-12 you'll notice that in several areas the owner's manual is word for word EXACTLY the same as the owner's manual for the Kel-Tec KSG bullpup shotgun.
Also, the two designs are very similar, both being modified John Browning Ithaca Model 37 designs.

The owner's manuals and similarity of some parts lead me to suspect that there's some connection between Standard Manufacturing and Kel-Tec.

I will tell you, I just bought one of these monsters and I love it. I'm not familiar w/Kel-Tec; however nowadays, everything's possible. Companies merge an so on, but this time around, it appears someone finally got it right. As far as mag fed shotguns go. Don't get me wrong, I had a Molot VEPR 12 and had to get rid of it b/c it would jam every 3-4 rds. This one, I shot it three times already; so far it ate slugs, 00 and bird shots like a meet grinder.

It is a firearm because it does not have a stock, however it has an 18" barrel and is 26" long. So you could add a stock and it would just become a shotgun.

199.00 to convert it

What is in the conversion kit? It seems it should be as simple as screwing in a pistol tube.

also, notice they take normal ar15 pistol grips....

Taking the price for the Shorty from their website, and adding in the Rail and conversion kit, It tally's up to roughly $967. Which is slightly less than the SKO-12 from Atlantic (on the SKO site, its $1100 for the SKO-12).

The rear “is not” threaded for a buffer tube. I purchased the shorty at my local shop and had to get the adapter kit. It consists of four parts including a threaded adapter for buffer tubes. I also had to make my own installation tool as one of the parts has a slot in it that is much too wide for any known screwdriver to work. I made the install tool from a 1”chisel, Ground it to the proper dimensions and put a heavy radius on the end to match the curve of the slot. I suggest you watch the install video, that’s where I got the idea of making my own tool. Once you have what you need it took all of 20 minutes to install the stock (LMT SOPMOD) of my choice.

Haven’t had a chance to shoot it a lot (only 50 rounds so far of slugs and 00 Buck) but it has run flawlessly so far. I intend to make this my 3-Gun Match shotty

No not that simple. When you take that butt cap off you have to remove a couple internal parts and replace them with three others, one of which is threaded for buffer tubes.

also, allegedly STD gun makes short barreled versions of these? anyone seen one? pics on net so few of this....

also, i wonder about millin out the side of upper and making it ambi charging handle..... maybe thats waiting for "v2.o"

dunno who is building their mags, but they look alot like the one i had for a turkish xtr-12
Link Posted: 5/8/2018 4:57:50 PM EDT
got mine, i rally like this thing, their website kinda sucks, as does their tech support... guy on phone said he didnt wanna discuss legal stuff while telling me i coulndt shoot an arm brace off my shoulder... told me he didnt have time to talk on phone, kinda f'd up.... also, he called the mags "clipz" sooooooooo, epic fail....

anyways, lot to like about this thing, as long as i can get decent tech support and customer service when i want/need it....

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m4OvQIGDg4I

things to like
-1 PGO firearm, with a pistol buffer tube you can get away with a 12" barrel
-2 ar pistol grip accepting
-3 ar controls
-4 really looks like ar inspired fcg, just modified for size
-5 has a buffer at rear of reciever, will absorb some recoil etc
-6 with some tools could convert to lh charge if you were dedicated
-7 barrel is real close od to a saiga, so you could externally thead for chokes/breaks etc and have interchangeable parts...

That just cooled down my enthusiasm a few degrees. It's got an 18" barrel already, no need to make me spend another $200 just to put a stock on it. Don't want the goofy, fifty foot rail, just the shorty with the right parts to screw in an AR tube. They don't sell the buffer tube parts separate?

i think a better solution could be made by someone else (aftermarket). their is a bolt buffer that is retained by that big nut/adapter thing.... so the nut adapter goes away wth a shorter/lower profile bolt buffer housing, and a collar with the correct ar15 buffer tube threads goes around it... so basically its 3 main parts, (ar15)buffer tube, collar/adapter, new (shotgun)bolt buffer

i have a couple pieces of 1.25" OD alum on my work bench that could be modified to fit around current (shotgun)bolt buffer assy, i just dont have the welder and lathe to make the parts fit together....

i think it would only require 2 pieces of aluminum. the 1.25 od that the armbrace would mount to, divot/dimple for your wanted armbrace placement, and a smaller, shorter alum piece that would get welded to other piece (1.25 od).

mine not cycling good from hip, but with a jury rigged brace, when gun against my shoulder it cycles well

no-one else has one yet? any one cut barrel shorter?

You can pout a stock on it for $139 like I did. They do sell "just" the buffer tube and related parts and then you can use any AR stock you might have laying around.

Haven't found a need to cut the barrel shorter as I use mine for 3-gun matches and I need the full 18" barrel with chokes to knock down those stubborn steel poppers we quite often use in matches. The chokes are much appreciated for clays at longer distance. I have tried the 9", 12", & 14" shotguns I have for 3-gun and this 18" barrel is much appreciated.
Link Posted: 10/2/2018 9:34:10 AM EDT
saw one thats been cut down to like 13.5". had to do gas port work to make it cycle anything but buckshot, as i would expect... had a GK01 saiga brake on it, took up lotsa recoil!!

Dumb question:

How do arm braces and “other” weapons work?
Link Posted: 10/2/2018 8:53:40 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 10/2/2018 8:54:46 PM EDT by Hellion-Productions]
I asked them on their Facebook page. They said an arm brace would fit on the rear receiver extension. I don't know which, though, or the diameter.

And a brace should be good to go, as long as the overall length stays 26± inches, I think.

Best,
JBR
Link Posted: 10/3/2018 1:06:06 AM EDT
that mini is real neat! exactly ideal... except that 2 round mag in the top pic, why bother!

their tech support is garbage though. i tried calling them, asked about "the mini" type principle, and they were rude. talked about how sub 18" barrel illegal, that they werent lawyers, that they couldnt advise this and that, just really soured me on them as a company. granted i was probably talking to a knuckle dragging assembler guy, and not someone that could actually help with my questions, but they shouldnt have routed me to him if he didnt have "people skills"

I put a stock on the Shorty to make it a "shotgun" just like the SKO-12. There would be no need to put a brace on the shorty as the barrel is 18 3/8" so you might as well use a real stock. I guess the only reason to use a brace is that once you add the stock technically it is a shotgun and could not be reverted to a "firearm" but the shorty had terrible ergonomics with such a long barrel.

Looks like the mini has the same adapter I used to add the stock to my shorty. That short stub probably unscrews so you should be able screw an arm brace tube into the adapter and use an arm brace of your choice. An arm brace makes sense with the shorter 14" barrel.
