UTAS UTS-15 an alternative to the KT KSG?

Post by jgreenberg01 » 02 Dec 2012, 07:50

I know someone mentioned this somewhere on the forum, but Hickcok 45 got a hold of one to play with. I don't know if it is commercially available or not, but if it is... imma git me one of these instead of a KSG!!!

It is commercially available. Most I've seen are around $1000

That thing belongs in a movie and that's where it should stay...

I prefer my saiga-12 personally, but as an alternative to the KSG, I would take a look at the 1216; if you haven't already.

Here is a video displaying its function:

I apologize in advance if this derails OP thread; this seemed relevant to me

It's just that after my experience with my PMR-30, I am really leery of KT now. I know that I probably just got a lemon, but after 2 unsuccessful trips to be repaired, I gotta wonder.

The UTS 15 seemed to work flawlessly in this particular video, so that's on step ahead of KT as far as I'm concerned.

I don't think I've seen any major complaints with the ksg. Though I think I've read about malfunctions that you have to tear the gun apart to fix? I like how you can open the rear on the UTS.


Has KT fixed your pMr yet?

If you mean my personal PMR... no. I'm too disillusioned to send it back for a third time.

The loading looks to more cumbersome than the KSG. Also, it ejects to the right which, from what I've read, comes out under your chin if you're a lefty. The KSG ejects straight down like the PS90; I've heard that it can hit your arm when ejecting & can bruise/cut your arm. I have an idea for that but would have to fondle a KSG to know if it is has a chance at working.

UTS' tube selection on top? That doesn't make much sense to me. Auto alternating is good if you have the same loads but trying to keep track of which round you are using in a "firefight" or just rapid fire drills? Not likely.

KSG is still ahead IMHO.

I have a Saiga 12.
Seen the UTS.
Seen the KSG.
1216 is new to me.

Saiga has beter mag changes than the 1216.
KSG is simpler than the UTS.
UTS is built better than the KSG.
There's a roto-mag thing out there for standard pumps.

Saiga wins, but I'd trade my Saiga for a KSG simply because it's not a semiauto.

May I ask why you prefer non-semi for that kind of a shotgun?

The only shotguns I've owned are semi. I'll never get a pump.

Reliability. The Saiga is tough as nails, but pumps are just more reliable.

Is your carry gun also a revolver? They are more reliable than a semi

Common knowledge that pump action shotguns feed more reliably than semi-auto shotguns. No need to piss against the wind on this fact.

Ruger 41 magnum is a carry instrument of choice :)

No, but I am in the market for a 3" stainless .357Mag for the same reason...
The nature of 12gauge shells; soft and not tapered, makes them MUCH more prone to feed problems in a semi. Nature of the beast. My S12 is solid, and if I could have both, I definitely would.
