Here's the original press release:

Iron Horse Firearms Sentry 12 Pump Action Magazine Fed Shotgun

For Immediate Release – Salt Lake City, UT –  Blackwater Firearms is pleased to announce the launch of the Sentry 12 pump-action magazine fed shotgun.  The Sentry 12 is available immediately through the Blackwater dealer network.

The Sentry 12 is designed to be an ideal shotgun for law enforcement, addressing the need for re-configurations in rapidly changing situations. Typically law enforcement maintains color-coded shotguns for lethal and less than lethal rounds that represent a higher cost to the department and taxpayers. By offering a reliable magazine-fed solution, law enforcement now has the option to purchase a platform that has colored-coded magazines at a significant reduction in cost. Additionally, Iron Horse Firearms has made the shotgun available with an 18” barrel that will be available to consumers for home defense and hunting.

The Sentry 12 is a lightweight, 12 gauge, magazine-fed shotgun, that offers users the ability to rapidly reconfigure ammunition to match specific threat or hunting scenarios.  The lightweight, AR-style ergonomics provide users with an intuitive crossover from other standard rifle platforms on the market.  In addition to cross-platform similarities, the ability to store ammunition in familiar magazine pouches, and rapid reloads, give users the edge in high-stress situations.
