Escort's defense-style shotguns offer the same high performance function and reliability as all other Escort models with features that have been designed for tactical use. The Gladius features a tough synthetic stock with a pistol grip with cushioned inserts and an additional vertical grip mounted on the Picatinny-railed forend for improved control. The stock also has a built-in shell holder that allows shooters to carry two additional shells. The sights are perfect for quick target acquisition with a height adjustable fiber-optic front sight in an elevated housing and a ghost ring rear sight that is fully-adjustable. The receiver is CNC-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, creating the perfect mix of strength and low weight. Additional features include: a Picatinny top-rail, a full-length heat shield, a low-density recoil pad, an adjustable cheek pad, a muzzle brake, a single-round magazine cut-off, and sling swivel studs. This shotgun is a demo gun that comes with the original factory box. Its stock, metal, and bore are all in excellent condition.
