If I am not mistaken, that Marine has a pump action shot gun



I did not know the US military was still using them in a combat roll. We had a few in Kosovo in 2000, but those were only used for riot control.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Like I said, they are very useful for fighting in close quarters, may it be a jungle, a dense forest or a city.

I don't think you'll find shotguns in use much with the Australian army, not much good in such a big, wide open country . I've only seen the CDO 4 RAR use them before

The USMC use to have the Mossberg 590 with ghost ring sights, heat shield and bayonet lug as the standard issue. But I think they are phasing them out for the Bennelli M4.

You are right, the Bennelli is the new Joint Service SG.
