American Tactical logoSummerville, SC-(Ammoland.com)- American Tactical, US manufacturer and world-wide importer of firearms, ammunition and tactical equipment, has expanded its Cavalry shotgun line with the new Road Agent 12-gauge shotgun.

The Road Agent's design has an updated twist with the classic external hammers side by side. The Road Agent features our Patent-Pending De-cocker System, an industry first for an external hammer shotgun.

The Road Agent auto-cocks both hammers when you break the barrel to load it. The Patent-Pending De-cocker Lever automatically sets the gun to the “Safe” position. Just move the de-cocker lever to the de-cock position and both hammers will drop without striking the firing pins. When ready to shoot, simply break the barrel to re-cock the hammers.

The Road Agent also features double triggers to match its classic external hammer design, so you can shoot both barrels at once!

    Has anyone confirmed that the hammers can be cocked by hand and not limited to breaking the barrel to cock the hammers.

    I think most are missing the point. This shotgun was designed with Cowboy Action Shooting in mind. One of the issues with double hammered shotguns in the past was that it takes one or two more steps to fire. As the rules allow only two shells at a time and require at least one reload not having to cock the hammers makes this gun a viable candidate competition wise and it looks the part.

    I do like the hammers for looks, but would prefer hammerless with slide safety
    right in the middle behind the break down lever. Break down load, close, slide
    safety forward your ready for business.

    I thought the same thing JP. I had a double hammer 12ga. one time and wish I had it back.

    @Douglas White… I still have mine, my first shot gun . Yes carried it with hammers down cock in the motion to shoot.
    It has 32 inch barrels. The only disconcerting thing is after shooting when unloading I have found tiny fireing pin marks on the shell in the other barrel, but it never has fired simultaneously.

    So, it “auto-cocks both hammers when you break the barrel to load it”. Then you use the de-cocking lever to move the hammers to the “safe” position. Then, “when ready to shoot, simply break the barrels to re-cock the hammers”… I don’t know. I’m all for safety but that seems a bit of a pain in the a$$ to run a simple double side by side coach gun. I would think you’d want the hammers to remain down till ready to shoot (as usual) then just have to pull the hammers back, not have to break the barrels again. Just… Read more »

    I’m with you. External hammers are made to be cocked directly by hand!

    I agree 100% with JP! Makes no sense what so ever to have to break the barrels again.
