John: Hey, welcome to Shot show 2013. This is John with Rockwell Arms, here with Mark from UTAS to talk about the revolutionary tactical shotgun, the UTS 15. Mark, tell us a little bit about this shotgun.
Mark: All right, John. What we have here is a 15-round, dual magazine tactical shotgun. The total weight is seven pounds, three ounces, unloaded.
The gun has two seven-round magazine tubes, and with the selector set in the standard or middle position, it will feed continuously, right magazine tube to left magazine tube, for all 15 rounds. If you would like to lock out a magazine, if you’re pattern loading with slugs on one shot, buck on the other, flip the switch, locks out this magazine tube, feeds from that magazine tube only. If during that same cycle you would like to go back to alternating, move the selector back to the middle, close the action, and you’re feeding alternately from there forward.
The main mechanism of the gun is right here. It’s standard rotating bolts. This is the feed mechanism, which is basically an upside-down or reverse carrier that you’ll be familiar with from a standard gun. The standard gun will raise the carrier, will raise the shell up into the chamber, where we are actually bringing the shell down to the chamber. Because our magazine tubes are on top and the barrel is in line underneath that, most of the weight is above the barrel, which will allow for a straight back—recoil will be basically the same as any 12-gauge shotgun, but the muzzle jump or rise is greatly reduced.
Another interesting factor is that since the shell is being brought down and this spoon is spring-loaded, the shell is always under spring tension, so if for any reason you wanted to operate the gun in this position with the ejection port open, the shell will not fall out. It will stay there. You can shoot this gun in any position you would like.
To load the gun, loading through the loading port doors on this side, and then also obviously on the other magazine tube, there is a thin slot cut in the magazine tube, so you can see the shells in there, and they correspond with the shell counter on the side rail. It will index down from seven, to six, to five to four. You can always tell how many rounds you have on each side. Some shells, blue shells, green shells, are not quite as easy to see, so we’ve taken and put a white mark on the follower that will again index down as you fire, and you’ll know exactly how many rounds you have in the gun.
The gun comes with or without sights, with or without the tactical door-breaching muzzle-break choketube. This, by the way, is the standard choke tube that’s supplied with the gun. It can go either direction.
The most interesting option or feature of the gun is the built-in point-and-shoot laser flashlight, activated by this simple switch here. The laser flashlight fits in this housing. Sorry to point the gun at you, but in this housing right here. We’ve got a wiring harness, waterproof wiring harness that runs back to the switch. After-market installation is a minute and a half or two minutes by anybody. To operate it, turn it on--your flashlight. You can see that? Goes to laser, and then off.
That is the UTS 15 tactical shotgun. Thank you.
Transcript of Laser Light Video:
This is David from Rockwell Arms, here to show you the UTAS UTS 15, and we have the different accessories here, the tactical choketube, the extended barrel, and what we really came here to show you is the laser flashlight combo.
So here we have for the installation of the laser flashlight combo for the UTS-15. We’re going to release the fore-end, so that we can get access to the magazine cap. Remove that, and it will have a plug in the end of it that we’ll talk about later. Open up the butt stock and the barrel and magazine tube will slide forward, and then we’ll take off the fore-end with the bolt body. And then we’ll gain access to the plug, where the laser flashlight combo will be mounted. That plug is meant to come out. We had asked UTAS about it, and they said it was meant to be removed.
So go ahead and take that out. It may be easy. It may be a rubber plug, or they also have a hard plastic plug, but they are meant to be removed, so go ahead and take that out, and then you’ll be able to install the laser-flashlight combo. So go ahead and slide the button and the chord through the end there on that tube, and it has some grooves that will lock the laser light into position, so that it doesn’t move around and that it’s stationary. And take that ring off the button and then go ahead and slide it into the hole, and then that ring will be re-attached to hold it into place.
And then now we will re-assemble, and as you’re sliding it all back together, remember to leave a little bit of room to make it easier to put everything back together as you’re putting the fore-end back on there. You can see how I adjusted it a little bit to make room for the barrel and the magazine assembly to drop back into place, and then it will all slide and lock in, and then go ahead and remember to take that plug out. And it may slide out. And you may have to twist it out. We had a little bit of complication on this one, but go ahead and remove that plug and put the magazine cap back on and then we’ll do a test here on the light to let you know how it functions--just with a quick easy press of the button there just above the trigger guard on the right-hand side.
And then go ahead and slide the fore-end forward, and you have your fully-functional UTS 15.
