The Optima D12 is a bold new take on a classic shotgun design.
Bentonville, AR (June 24, 2019) – Escort’s Optima D12 is a modern work of art, blending classic design features of the over-under shotgun with industry-leading innovation. Adorned with the elegant look of Turkish walnut and a steel white chrome-finished receiver, the Optima D12 is a wingshooter’s dream come true.
The Optima D12 offers a 12-gauge, 3-inch magnum chambering capable of handling a wide variety of shotgun loads, including steel and tungsten. The 28-inch, proof-tested barrel is designed to take on the most rugged conditions afield, making it a reliable workhorse for decades to come. Escort barrels are engineered to prevent oxidation with its hard chrome finishing. Featuring a 7x7mm ventilated and checkered rib with metal bead front sight, the Optima D12 is well balanced and graceful to swing on target.
Fully capable at the clay target range or in the field, the Optima D12 comes with five choke tubes, including Improved, Improved Cylinder, Cylinder, Modified, and Full. A single selective trigger allows the shooter to designate which barrel fires first, while an ultra-reliable extractor system makes for easy and efficient reloading. An optional model will also be available with a spring-loaded shell ejector mechanism.
At 45 inches overall length, the Optima D12 offers a highly customizable fit for shooters of all sizes. The Optima D12 comes from the factory with a 14.25-inch length of pull. A rubber recoil pad offers all-day comfort for shooters. The Optima D12 measures 1.57 inches drop at comb and 2.5 inches drop at heel. Likewise, the premium selected Turkish walnut stock and forend feature a matte finish and are kiln dried and moisture stabilized for consistent performance in any climate or weather.
