Escort Introduces its New Slugger Series of Pump-Actions for 2020

Escort Shotguns 2020
Escort Slugger Pump-Action

Escort is introducing its new Slugger series of pump-actions for 2020. This no-frills security shotgun is available in two styles. The Slugger is a synthetic-stocked, ergonomic grip, scattergun with textured grip panels for use in multiple environments. The Slugger Tact is the tactical, pistol-gripped variant for even better control and versatility. Available in 3" magnum 12-gauge, either Slugger model comes in a durable, all-weather, black finish.

Designed with durability and simplicity in mind, the Escort Slugger is built to work hard. The fixed blade front sight is large and easy to find in low light but isn't as delicate as a fiber sight. Mounted sling studs provide solid attachment points for a variety of slings and tethers. The extended pump handle is easy to operate and doesn't require extending one's natural reach during use. Coupled with a fixed cylinder 18" barrel, the 5+1 capacity offers the right combination of portability and competence. A soft rubber buttpad absorbs recoil and improves shooting comfort.

The Tact model additionally features a soft rubber pistol grip with contoured finger grooves and an extra sling mounting point. The buttstock provides an improved cheek weld and space to hold 5 additional shells for greater carrying capacity. The forend also provides space for extras via way of a Picatinny accessory rail.

Escort's PS line of semi-automatic shotguns now available in three popular camo patterns

Escort PS semi-auto shotgun.

Escort's proven PS line of semi-automatic shotguns are now available in three popular camouflage patterns: RealTree APG, RealTree Max5, and Mossy Oak BottomLand. The PS features Hatsan's FAST Loading System and Smart Valve Piston technologies. The FAST Loading System enables faster and easier loading with one hand and without the need to change shooting position. The loading switch acts as both a carrier latch release for loading and the bolt release when the bolt is locked back. This gun's Smart Valve Piston will cycle 7/8 oz, 2 ¾" up to 3" full magnum loads, credited to its self-regulating design. This patented design is so reliable that one can mix heavy and light loads in the same magazine without a hiccup.


Each gun ships with 5 interchangeable chokes: Full, Improved Modified, Modified, Improved Cylinder, and Cylinder. The 28-inch-long barrel is equipped with a bright red fiber optic front sight, improving low-light visibility. Every Hatsan barrel is proof tested and hard chrome lined to ensure maximum durability and corrosion resistance. The advanced polymer synthetic stock is both light and durable, with checkering on the grip surfaces for improved control and feel of the shotgun. Heavy-duty steel sling studs come pre-mounted and ready to be used.

PS Camo Features

  • 12-gauge 3" magnum
  • Gas-operated semi-automatic
  • Smart Valve Piston - self regulates for flawless performance with both 2 ¾" and 3" shells
