Inter Ordnance just announced the release of its newest bullpup shotgun platform: The IO XB. The Inter Ordnance XB obviously features a bullpup design and is chambered in 12 gauge. An initial look has us excited for testing.

Inter Ordnance XB Bullpup Shotgun Features

The semi-automatic shotgun comes in black, flat dark earth and olive drab green. The XB features a 3-inch chamber. The barrel length measures 18.5 inches overall. Moreover, the entire package measures just 30.5 inches, a testament to the bullpup design. The XB Bullpup Shotgun weighs 8.5 pounds overall.

The XB comes with three tactical chokes and BU Flip sights. An included carrying handle utilizes integrated iron sights. However, the top of the shotgun comes with a Picatinny rail for optics attachment. Picatinny strips placed at the sides and bottom of the forend provide additional accessory mounting locations.

To help tame the thump of 12-gauge recoil, the shotgun includes a thick rubber buttpad. To help dial the fit to each shooter, and adjustable cheek rest custom fits to each shooter.

Featuring AK-style controls, the XB Bullpup features a manual bolt-hold open and an oversized bolt handle. Two five-round magazines and a full cleaning kit come with the package. Finally, 5+1 choke tubes round out the package.
