The UTS-9 is a unique pump action shotgun of only 28.5" overall length, for quick pointing functionality in the woods or for protection at home. It has dual, manually selected magazines, snap open loading ports and retractable magazine followers. The UTS-9 is permanently plugged to hold four rounds in each tube, plus one in the chamber. It is able to fire 2.5", 2.75", or 3" magnum shotshells. The UTS-9 also features a positive bolt lock that locks the action closed when engaged. The bolt release button is under the rear of the stock, well away from the trigger. The 4140 steel barrel is threaded to accept Beretta-style chokes. It has a top-mounted Picatinny rail. The fiber-reinforced butt plate has a 1", 8 durometer (A scale) energy absorbing recoil pad. It is state compliant for CA, NJ, NY, and CO.
