“Pistol grip firearms” are all the craze in 2017. The look and feel of a shotgun without any NFA hassle — it’s a beautiful thing. It gets even better when you look at the all-new Nighthawk Tomahawk Pistol Grip Firearm.

The Tomahawk is built from the Remington 870. With an overall length of only 26 inches, it is capable of holding 5+1 rounds of 12-gauge shotgun shells.

“One of my favorite points is the inclusion of the Vang Comp back bore and barrel porting system,” Athlon Outdoors contributor Fred Mastison says. “This helps minimize recoil and makes this firearm as easy to shoot as it is to maneuver. I have had Vang Comp work on one of my personal shotguns. It is a fantastic addition to a gun.”

The firearm got a serious workout at the first-ever Athlon Outdoors Rendezvous in Gateway, Colo. Watch the video above to see the Nighthawk Tomahawk in action.
