Ok, this is largely in response to Jim in Conroe’s comments. I am aware this is a two year old article, so bear with me. This is for anyone who searches for DP12 articles here I have a DP12. I’m an actual owner, I was not gifted nor given it… I bought it after saving up for it. I’m not rich, so having said that I’m in a little better position to comment on it than he is. Here are a few points I would like to make. 1.Value I paid less than $1200 for mine brand new to have… Read more »

Silas,

Where did you get rifled barrels for the DP-12?

Those who complain about weight on the DP-12 really don’t get it,weight and mass means less recoil, a 90 lb person can shoot this gun with 1oz loads all day, try that with a Utas. If you really need a sight with a shotgun to hit anything at 20 yards I suggest you take 2 weeks off than Quit. I suggest you view the factory video, the DP-12 is a one man army in the proper hands.For the price, its the most inexpensive Home Defense/Close quarter weapon out there,present an opponent with the mere sound of racking TWO into the… Read more »

Right. Make this award to a novelty gun, which has few practical uses, and has received universally poor reviews from those groups that have an unbiased interest in firearms.

Not really sure where you’ve been looking, but at least 95% of the reviews I have read and watched (by unbiased reviewers) have been overwhelmingly positive, and those that did have concerns had only minor ones (usually weight and price). As for it having “few practical uses”, it’s a shotgun that holds 16 rounds…how is that not “practical”? It seems that your negativity is based strictly on your own, personal dislike of anything new or innovative which, I assume, is why you label this fine firearm “a novelty gun” when every indication is that it is, in fact, a high… Read more »

95% of the reviews you saw were probably paid puff pieces by reviewers who were provided free examples to test out and report on. I call it a novelty gun, because other than holding off a home invasion, I can’t see a practical use for it. As Gun Test Magazine (a source I do trust) noted, “This high-capacity shotgun would fit right in with the weapons featured in video games or movies depicting combat scenarios of the future. . . . Tipping the scales at 10.25 pounds unloaded and 12 pounds with 16 rounds in the magazines and chambers, this… Read more »
