Long time lurker and first time poster here.
Just checked out the TAC12 at their store in Cockburn.........in one word......very nice.
Is their a problem locally with WAPOL........currently CAT A but is there an issue somewhere?
Looking to purchase very soon.
Thanks Tony

I have seen that they can be offered with a traditional pistol grip style stock that should prevent WAPOL getting their knickers in a twist, I’m planning to go that route when I bite the bullet and order one. Just trying to find out if they’ll accept an ATI raven stock first.

The Dickinson T-1000 in tactical guise gets through just fine.

Isn't it about time we get some gun rights?

I was thinking the FDE but after your pic of the Camo I'm all for that now. Looks better than stock pics on the website. How are you liking the Tac-12 so far?

Saw this one from Aaron and it got me interested. H4e seems like a no-nonsense reviewer who calls it like he sees it. I give him a lot of cred for his opinion and he really likes the Tac-12.

Indeed, there was also an Australian made straight-pull (if you support that kinda stuff) from Windynamics Australia. Not too expensive either.

Thanks for the heads-up. I just checked their website but the Sulun Arms is a 7+1 and comes with a padded bag and the Berika Arms model comes with 2 5-round magazines. Both are a tad cheaper than the Aussie version. I'm guessing they're new to the market?

I'm very happy with it, shot a few hundred rounds mostly buckshot and some slugs through it with no issues. There's nothing else that's come onto the market since buying it that I would rather have instead, so it's still my first choice for a tube fed straight pull.

The only other shotgun that caught my attention recently is that meme double barrel straightpull the mh12, but I don't really see that as a practical gun, just something stupid and fun to shoot.

I do believe so, hard to find reviews for it.

Waiting on next shipment of Tac-12 due in a couple of weeks at Arms & Ammo (Newcastle). Not sure whether to get the camo or desert. Both look great.

Looking at getting a decent sling and a light. Any other add-ons people think are necessary?

Josh from Sulun Arms is going to sell accessories next Jan. He will import a number of different type. Or you can go to Brownell.com. They will ship the Mesa tactical rail integrated 8 shell carrier. It's US$145 plus shipping. Mesa Tactical official website is cheaper but they don't ship to OZ.

I am waiting for Josh and see what he has got.

Picked up this sling for my new Tac-12 when I get it:

https://tacticalgear.com.au/products/bl ... yote-brown

Did a bit of research on 1,2 & 3 point slings and this little beauty seems the pick of the bunch. Watched a video on connecting it to a Benelli (same as Tac-12) and it fits sweet. Now just waiting on the shipment of the Tac-12s to arrive in Newcastle and I'm good to go. PTA in hand already. I'm like a kid in a candy store...

Yup, the blue force gear slings are quality, I've got the same one on mine, although it's the padded version so it has a bit more material around the shoulder area.

As far as other accessories go I don't think it really needs too much done to it, personally I have a habit of typically putting on more than necessary, or changing things just for the sake of it. Even though I actually try to keep things simple, it usually never ends up that way :unknown:

Are you planning to put a red dot on it? That's really the main component apart from the sling that I'd recommend, but I run dot's or scopes on everything and never really used irons much. Everything else is more of an extra that you don't really need, but might want depending on your usage of the gun.

I'll use the ghost ring sights first for a while but a red dot may be on the cards. I have the el-cheapo Bushnell TRS-25 on my Henry lever action and it is good for what I want. I think another Bushnell would be ideal on the Tac-12.

Hey guys, has anyone struggled to get the muzzle break choke screwed in? Mine doesn't seem to fit for some reason, also anyone know m-lok handguards that are good and will fit the Tac-12?
