Awesome Shotgun

This was just what I was looking for as a home defense weapon… This gun is sturdy and well-built… if you’re looking for a home defense weapon I think you should grab one of these, you won’t be disappointed

So far...

Upon opening the box...very impressed
Neat packaging...super clean ...nice and lubed...

Chokes w/choke key came in a nice little rock box ( pretty badass) the extended choke with muzzle brake was separate in a ziplock ....it did come with the non steel shot no slug ammo choke installed ( be mindful)...

It also came with a trigger magwell leash lock...and a separate piston ring...( The piston ring that was installed in it was a light load ...you may want to be mindful of this factor also)

Went out last weekend for break-in ..
Me and a buddy ran 200 rounds of Winchester 1325 fps ammo through it...
As expected from all the research I had done over various ar12,s I was interested in before buying this one...
The first 50 rounds would not cycle at all...
The next 50 it started to cycle 1-2 /1-2/1-2...
After the first 100 rounds it started to cycle out 2/3/4...2/3/4......after the first 150...
It was spotty but it would cycle 3 about every time then it started to cycle through 5 ( mag dump)
What impressed me was how fast it would dump 5 rounds..

As we closed in on the first 200 it started
getting a tad laggy - most likely from getting seriously dirty in it's guts....

Being my first piston driven firearm....
It's definitely a tad different to clean up as I am used to two pin drop off bottom receiver ..
This is a tad more tedious and you actually need some tools (a screwdriver /a 6 mm Allen socket a 12" extent in and a wratchet...after the first breakdown it's actually pretty simple ....as well as reassembly .....

I just ordered 6 different types brands of ammo for it yesterday ( various rifled slugs / buck shot & steel shot ..

I set it up with the extended choke and cleaned and put the light load piston ring back in ...so once the new ammo comes in planning on going out n running various ammo types to see what she favors . ...

Overall ...
For the money I spent..."HIGHLY IMPRESSED"...
BEING a major fan of all thing ar style....this thing is sexy as f@#k....
I don't believe I could find a nicer pew (brand new even) for the money...

As for alot of ppl leaving a complaint about thing getting loose on it..fittings /screws on front handguard...
It's an ar12- 12 ga shotgun ..when you compare the recoil to a simple small to mid caliber handgun or a smaller caliber AR like a 223 or even a 7.62/308....THIS IS A WAY MORE VIOLENT RECOIL BY NATURE!....things will be jarred and shaken . ....simple fix: when you break it down to clean it ...either before ( as some suggest) or after break in...."GET YOURSELF SOME LOCK TIGHT"...I ended up putting a dab of lock tight on the barrel shroud because ( which I actually found to be pretty neat making it beyond simple to help with the breakdown and cleaning) and I'm not exactly sure why except maybe a 2nd gen thing) the handguard on mine has no hardware to remove or screws to tighten ...it literally slides on ...tabs hold it in place and the barrel shroud locks it into place...so as my barrel shroud started to loosen up during break in...the handguard became all rattle box-ish.....*JUST GRAB SOME LOCK-TIGHT/ EASY PEASY FIX...(again violent recoil would do that /at least common sense should tell you that...)

Again ...
Overall...very very happy this far ..For my taste *BEAUTIFUL GUN/ GREAT PRICE*
(can't wait to get a few 10 Rd mags and cycle out & dump 10 right quick...)

Nice job

The product was exactly as described and the service and shipping were spot on. I will order from them again

Citadel AR12

Nice weapon and everything came in the box including the additional gas piston. Broke the down and did the initial cleaning and it was easy to tear down. the action functions smoothly and the trigger break crisp. Wish there was a forward guard up front for your non shooting hand. I am looking forward to taking it to the range to break it in .


By Eddie on 02/04/21
Good but it has issues

Nothing to complain but the fact that the charging handle comes off. I have never taken the gun apart, but since the first time at the range the handle kept coming off until, my third visit to the range when I completely lost it. I call Citadel for a replacement and even though they are going to replace it for free is on back order and now it's the fifth week and no charging handle yet.

Thanks to Gunprime for making this purchase fast and easy.

The Citadel BOSS 25 shot better than expected right out of the box. I shot two boxes of 3 inch steel shot at 1500 FPS and the gun did not jam once. It was easy to break down to clean. Overall super happy with my new purchase.

Boss 25

So far so good. Haven't shot it yet. Looks awesome.


By Happy costumer on 12/09/20
Nice

This gun is smoking cool!!!
Budget!!! Fun!!! For me not cycling 2 3/4 but i will figure something out...
Shipping was extremly fast!!!
Box was demaged while in transit and one part was missing but i will buy if i need the part


By Jake r on 12/08/20
Very easy. Professional. And quick arrival

First time ever ordering a gun online, I figured there would be tons of paperwork, review time from seller, potential shipping issues to the FFL, but they did Awsome!
Ffl was great and easy to pickup. Shipping under a week and it is much better condition than pic description so 100% all around


By Bluebeard on 12/04/20
LOVE IT!

As others have said it needs a real good cleaning out of the box. Also it is very handy to have a little lock tight around. I tried it out without any and the hand guard got a little loose as well as the barrel cover at the end. Make sure to have over 1300fps rounds. I was putting 1625fps bird shot and 2000fps slugs through it to break it in. After taking it to the range with my father in law I think he was convinced to get one!

Locked and Loaded

I haven't shot it yet but I love the feel and grip of this shotgun. It's light weight and not bulky as other AR-12s.


By Robert b on 12/01/20
Shipping was fast

Shotgun is amazing would only shoot high brass at first but instead of waiting for the full break in period being an over thinker I took some crocus cloth to the sliding surface on the barrel and now she eats anything I feed her


By Simon Coull on 12/01/20
A great experience

Great product described perfectly. Vendor was great , shipping was great.


By Jordan M from NC on 11/25/20

I'll start by saying i haven't shot the gun yet, but the buying experience was phenomenal. from the point of purchase i was informed of everything in the picking and shipping process. The gun arrived in great time in great condition, no issues whatsoever Gunprime has earned my business from now on, they are an amazing company that ships fast, keeps you in the loop, and delivers what was promised. I will definitely buy from them again. A++


By XXXXDEMON on 11/25/20
Very great gun

Came very fast, just like described. Glad I ordered the gun when I did. Thanks very much gunprime.


By TaDarrell King on 11/24/20
Great

It’s awesome


By MikeU on 11/20/20
Friendly, quick service.

Haven’t had the opportunity to shoot it yet but looks and feels good.
One of the magazines is very hard to drop, will see what use does for that.


By PHA357 on 11/16/20
Fast Delivery, Product was just as described. Very quick response on any issues or questions that I had.

Great Pricing


By Cattle Ranchers on 11/07/20
Love the service!

Quick fast and excellent service. Sent to the wrong FFL and it was super easy to fix! They even answered the phone! That’s huge in my book! Nothing automated ❤️ Super happy and can’t wait to see how it works- for zombies you know.....

Excellent firearm

I like the concept of AR,I have not been able to use it but I hope to do it soon.
I would like to know that it can be adapted


By M. Hofmann on 11/04/20
Fast Transaction/Delivery, Great Shotgun

I appreciate the AR platform similarities. The safety selector, bolt release, and magazine release are all in familiar locations. 3" high velocity (1300fps+) shot shells cycle flawlessly. Magazines are solidly built and disassemble the same as AR mags. During dove season, I was able to plug the five round magazines to two rounds very easily by inserting two pieces of bamboo chopsticks into the follower. Panzer magazines fit perfectly, so I was able to add ten round and two round magazines to the kit. The foregrip/handguard is held on by "friction" between the grip and the barrel nut and is dependent on two Allen head screws. If the screws become loose, the handguard will spin and affects the alignment of the pop-up sights, so the screws need to be torqued down tight. The bottom of the handguard has KeyMod slots and the sides have M-Lok slots for attachments. The butt stock has an adjustable cheek riser for a perfect cheek weld and the butt plate is soft rubber. A quick thumbs up for the prompt and swift service of GUNPRIME. I ordered the BOSS 25 on a Wednesday morning and I was shooting it by Friday!

The Boss is a Boss!

This is a fun shooter! Some things to take into consideration...heavy recoil leads to loose parts, so check and tighten often. This gun doesn't like low velocity ammo. I had a lot of jams the first 30 rounds, and was using 1300 - 1400 FPS slugs, buck shot (found online) and dove load (all I could find in store lol) all 2 3/4 in. I need to cycle more rounds though it, but it obviously like high velocity...to bad they are hard to come by right now..and have to make due with what you can find.
I mounted a red dot on it and works great.


By Jeff on 10/31/20
Great bang!

I bought this and got more than expected for the price point. Give it a good cleaning when you get it. I would recommend having some locktight for a couple of the joints that will loosen a bit as it fires. I shot 3" 1625fps rounds through it for the break in period (50ish) shots. It chugged through each one without issue. Can't wait to put some more through it! Also shipping was extremely quick!
