Expanding their extensive lineup of firearms, Khan Arms today introduced their new Matrix Inertial Semi-Auto Shotgun and a new line of PXS pump action shotguns chambered in .410 Bore. Known for about a quarter-century of crafting quality rifles and shotguns, the Turkish firearms manufacturer is bringing new options to shotgun enthusiasts.
Khan Arms Matrix Semi-Auto Shotgun
The Matrix will be available in 12 gauge and 20 gauge. The new models are designed to meet varying demands with five different barrel lengths available.
Irmak, a representative from Khan Arms, explained the features of the Matrix. The shotgun showcases an all-new, redesigned inertia system for improved performance. An important aspect of the design is the lightweight CNC machined Aluminum 7075 receiver, which contributes to the shotgun’s lighter weight.
Matrix shotguns are equipped with fiber optic bead sights to aid shooters in acquiring their target quickly. Additional features have been considered for user comfort, such as the inclusion of spacers for length of pull (LOP) adjustments on selected models. Every Matrix shotgun comes standard with a 4+1 capacity and accepts chokes, granting users the versatility for various shooting scenarios.
- 10 different styles (colors/furniture schemes)
- Available in 12 GA or 20 GA
- Barrel Lengths: 24” Slug, 24”, 26”, 28”, and 30”
- Weight: 6.8 lbs for the 12 GA model and 6.2 lbs for the 20 GA model
While the pricing for these models, including the new Matrix series, isn’t clearly stated, Khan Arms continues to offer a range of options for both civilian markets and official use. Additional models from last year’s lineup also continue to be relevant choices for shotgun users, complementing the latest Matrix Semi-Auto Shotgun with previously established design ingenuity and reliability.
PXS Pump Action Shotguns
Khan Arms representative Irmak explained the design philosophy behind the PXS models. The shotguns are constructed with reduced dimensions to cater to shooters looking for a lighter and more maneuverable firearm. Most of the new models feature youth-sized stocks, though they offer options with regular stock lengths as well.
The PXS in 410 Bore has a magazine capacity of 7+1 rounds. It’s available with various barrel lengths, including the compact model with an 18.5-inch barrel and regular models with barrels stretching 24, 26, and 28 inches. This range of sizes ensures that there is a PXS model to suit various preferences.
Additionally, Khan Arms offers the PXS shotgun in four different styles, with diverse color schemes and furniture to match personal tastes or needs. This choice in aesthetic does not detract from the shotguns’ practical functionality. The resurrection of the .410 bore shotgun has been noticeable in the firearms community, and Khan Arms’ PXS line is a noteworthy participant in this trend. The combination of elegance and practicality in a lightweight package makes these shotguns a fascinating option for enthusiasts and newcomers alike.
