PANZER ARMS BP-12
Panzer Arms BP-12 GEN 2 Bullpup Shotgun 12ga, is the newest shotgun offered by Panzer Arms of Turkey. The BP-12 comes with two 5 round magazines, removable angled forward grip, flip-up sights, three chokes, and a cleaning kit. There are Picatinny rails along the top of the receiver and on the sides and bottom of the handguard, to allow for easy mounting of optics or accessories. It also has a side charging handle for right-handed shooters. It is no longer ambidextrous, as the top charging handle has been removed to accommodate a slimmer profile, as well as weight reduction.
There have been a couple of variations of these on the market in the past with varying degrees of success but with this latest generation of AR-12, we think that Panzer Arms of Turkey has finally hit on the ultimate combination of design and features. This shotgun has beautifully styled polymer furniture that has a great feel similar to Houge. The buttstock has a built-in recoil pad with an ergonomic pistol grip. Flat top receiver with a full weaver rail. The forearm has a great futuristic and ergonomic design with a quad rail molded into the top as well as a light attachment molded into the front of the fore-end. Chambered for both 2 3/4″ and 3″ shells.

The VRBP-100-A is a semi-automatic shotgun with a charging handle in a similar place as a CZ Scorpion. By moving the action of the gun behind the trigger group, it allowed Rock Island Armory to reduce the total length of the long gun to 32 inches including a 42CrMo4 stainless steel 20-inch barrel.
Putting the VRBP-100-A into the battery with the charging handle is simple. The handle is large enough to be able to grab even under extreme stress. In a home defense situation, the large handle will save you time and might save your life.
Furthermore, while it isn’t as short as the KelTec KSG bullpup pump-action shotgun, which measures 26.1 inches, it is still shorter than most semi-automatic shotguns on the market. If Rock Island Armory made the gun any shorter, it would have sacrificed the accuracy of the shotgun.
