There’s no shortage of new shotguns available in the marketplace.

On the hunting side, new designs emphasize lighter offerings and oversized controls for cold-weather operation while wearing gloves. On the home defense/tactical side, the focus continues to be on detachable-magazine shotguns that resemble AR-platform rifles cosmetically and functionally.

Some manufacturers are also releasing short-barreled NFA shotguns as a catalog item rather than a special order, as well as shotguns with barrels shorter than 18 inches that aren’t NFA firearms because they lack stocks and have overall lengths of 26 inches.

Here’s a look at 30 new shotguns that have captured our attention recently.
