BW-KAS2 “Executioner”

The Section 6 Kinetic Assault Shotgun II, or the “Executioner” as it has been lovingly named, is the more traditional sister of the BW-KAS "Hailstorm" and is chambered in Galactic Horizon’s selection of 12 gauge shells. It is a pump-action bullpup shotgun that boasts two magazine tubes to hold more ammo in a shorter package than your average pump-action, it began production in early YE 41.

About the BW-KAS2 “Executioner”

The KAS2 was designed to be a simpler, smaller shotgun for the faction to use when you needed something in-front of you filled with high-velocity shot without making the weapon needlessly long or too heavy for non-PA troopers to use – thus it was born and chambered in a reliable shotgun round their closest company already mass-produced.

The S6-KAS2 is what you would expect of a double-tube pump-action shotgun for the most part, two tubes sit side by side above the barrel with additional bracing wrapped around them for both support and protection - the iron-sights are highlighted with Tridium for better target acquisition in dark environments and the stock almost looks like it was taken from a bullpup-rifle before being integrated into this project, it follows the usual Section 6 colour scheme of blacks and grays with occasional highlights in red and green.
