It appears that their client was shooting a Kel-Tec KSG equipped with a ProMag “Archangel” polymer forward grip when tragedy occurred.
Keep in mind the KSG is a bullpup 12 gauge, with a total length of only 26 inches.
The attorney was seeking advice and technical experts for the lawsuit. A friend saw the post and sent it to me.
A contact wound with a 12 gauge is devastating. There’s no coming back from something like that.
The attorney cites the compact nature of the KSG, and the fact there is nothing on the rail to “prevent the grip from sliding off.”
They also noted alleged problems with the forward grip: “Nothing but a polymer nipple secures this grip to the rail — this nipple partially sheared off during first use.”
My thoughts on the KSG are mixed.
I think it’s an intriguing design, but it suffers from Kel-Tec’s poor quality control.
Some KSGs run like sewing machines, but some shooters have complained about serious, potentially fight-stopping FTEs and FTFs with their KSGs. The model I shot functioned flawlessly, however it was not nearly as smooth as other pump guns.
The polymer rail on the pump concerns me too.
And then there’s the price, an MSRP of $990, which equates to about two 870s.
If you shoot one, please be careful.
