You could always wear a tactical cup ;)

I was also thinking about a single-point QD sling, but I might have to rethink that. I don't typically use slings anyway.

Susie Q, you and I need to see if we can get volume pricing since we seem to be moving in lock-step. Fortunately, my dad also has a KSG, so I get to borrow his special tools for getting it apart.
Lol!

I only use a sling if I'm out and about on the property and want my hands free. So a QD makes more sense for me. Would mostly leave the sling off, but nice to have the option.

Going to find out if replacing followers invalidates the warranty. I see Keltec sells them. I think I'd only use aluminum ones.

Thanks. Sometimes mine stick, so I may change them out. Plus it would be nice to have a bright color. I'll think about the sling, but I don't have any junk.

They make convertible slings that do single point and 2 point.

I am just guessing that having a heavy gun bouncing off, uh, the area where your junk would be if you had junk, is probably still less than pleasant for a woman. Obviously I am not speaking from experience so take that with a grain of salt.

There are a lot of guys here who have swapped followers. Some with great results, others with less than great results. So it's like everything else, you really have to assess your own personal situation and go with what works best for you. One thing I can tell you about springs and followers. They need to be clean and the tube needs to be clean, but they need to remain dry. So don't leave oil on them. Dry lube is fine. Maybe start by taking them out and cleaning them and the feed tubes??

My stock plastic followers are bright orange. :)

Thanks! All my other slings are 2 point, so a convertible makes sense to me. Maybe try the MS4. Going to have to see how the KSG slings. I've gotten accustomed to African carry. Don't know the safest way to sling it and don't want to chance getting in the way of the business end.

I'll definitely take your advice and clean it up first. If that doesn't work, I'll try Keltec's aluminim followers.

Well on the subject of light mounting, I like them under the barrel so I don’t get shadow cast on either side and it makes for a quick reference point for aiming.

A little on the off subject side of things, I’ve had mine for about 8-9 years. It’s been awesome and I just sent it to Kel-Tec for some replacement parts. They ended up replacing almost everything but the receiver. It’s like mine is almost brand new again. Aside from a muzzle brake and pop up sights, I haven’t really messed with much. Well I’ve decided I’m gonna start messing with it again and just go full extreme on it. For starters, HiTech has a zombie rail that holds 28 shells. It’ll be crazy when I’m done.

+1 for the magpul MS4 sling. I have a few of them because my favorites rifles don’t like to share. Hahahahaha. The ability to quickly switch between a 1 point sling to a 2 is awesome, plus the slide to quickly adjust length is great.

I am a fan of the Blue Force Gear Vickers 2 point, but I recently got a Magpul MS1 for an AR. I like it pretty well too and it was much cheaper than the Vickers. The padded Vickers is especially nice with my KSG25. Fully loaded it has a little weight to it. For the KSG, KS7 or a 16" AR the Magpul sling seems a little more appropriate.

What a coinkydink. I use a Blue Force sling on my 870, which got noticeably heavier after I put the Magpul stock and forend on it, and a Magpul sling on my AR. But I hadn't thought of how nice the BF padding would be for the KSG. Thanks!

I like that location too, but it's easier for me to reach the button when it's on the left side. Do you use your forefinger to activate the light?
I'm betting I'm not the only one who wants to see your gun after you've finished the mods. Curious what it will weigh loaded.
I think we need a "What did you do to your KSG today?" thread.

Holy Guacamole!
Fun to look at, but I think I'd rather carry extra ammo with a shotgun card/pouch set up. KSG already feels pretty heavy to me.

Susie, those shell holders are removable so that will allow maximum customizability. And minis could be used for weight reduction. I love my 22s, ARs, and everything else, but I really like the idea of a Battle Tank KSG. I’m thinking of getting the other two models too. The KSG25 and what’s the short one called? The KSG-NR??? Also might as well get the KS7 too. My daughter could have the small one. The wife can have the KS7. I’ll have the KSG and my son can carry the pig, KSG25.

Now, that's some Kel-Tec love.
How about a TAC-D launcher for that battle tank?

I have the 25 so I don’t know much about the weight of the KSG. If you find it heavy, the BFG is an excellent option.

I finally got my KSG and accessories put together, so I thought I'd share what I ended up doing.


List of mods:
  • Holosun HS510C - really like the shake awake feature
  • Inforce WML light
  • Hi-Tech Custom KSG-NR/KS7/KSG Mini-Side Angle Rail (for the light)
  • Magpul RVG
  • Mechforce aluminum hand stop - nice and deep and looks great
  • Limbsaver butt pad
Other mods tried (not shown):
  • Magpul AVG - really like the feel, but worried I'd jam my thumb on the light when racking the slide and I wish the hand stop were deeper
  • Desert Strike Tactical Angled Polymer Grip - similar to the Magpul AVG, but with a deeper hand stop. The problem is the grip is much shorter lengthwise than the Magpul.
  • Lion Gears Low Profile Tactical Picatinny/Weaver 90 Degree Angle Pro Mount - this would replace the Hi-Tech rail and move the light higher up if using the AVG, though I think it might be too high to reach comfortably.
I still need to shoot it in this configuration to see how well I like it. The light is a little hard to reach, which is why I like the Magpul AVG, but we'll see. If I could find a 90-degree side rail that would move the light up 1/2" higher than the Hi-Tech, it might be perfect.

I like the MI part. It's lightweight and sturdy. The handstop is big. Mounting the taclight on the left works for me for all my rifles/shotguns. I put it forward enough so there's minimal blockage, but there is a shadow with the KSG when it's racked back. It's easy to activate and I can't accidently do so because I have a foregrip. Even without the foregrip I don't think I'd accidently hit the push button. But I may be unique - I'm a lefty who's right eye dominant and I shoot right-handed.

(Note that the MI mount/handstop doesn't work with the Hi-Tech lower rail add-on shown in the 2nd photo. You can mount the MI part, but you won't be able to mount a rail in its M-Lok slot because the Hi-Tech rail puts the MI part so low that there's too little room between the M-Lok slot and the KSG forend to accomodate the Magpul fasteners. I chose a Magpul RVG so I took off the Hi-Tech rail because I don't think I need to reinforce the lower rail for the RVG.)


Mod 1: changed my mind on the MI part. Accentuates forend wiggle.
In this photo, the light and finger guard move every time you pump the gun? I think I'd prefer a stationary light.
