Following a new collection of semi-automatic shotguns, including bullpup models, the Turkish arms company Hatsan, or rather its American division, has introduced a new series of relatively budget Escort Slugger Series pump-action shotguns, which are partly based on the 12-gauge Escort AimGuard and Escort Slug Pump models. . At the moment, two models are already presented in the new line — this is the basic version of the Escort Slugger and the version with the «tactical» body kit Escort Slugger Tact. Both models are exclusively available in 12 gauge (12/76mm).
Escort Slugger Series smoothbore pump shotguns, regardless of version choice, feature an 18″ chrome NiCrMo fixed choke barrel, anodized aluminum alloy receiver, 5+1 capacity tubular magazine, push-button safety, forearm and buttstock made of impact-resistant polymer and a wide rubber butt plate. In addition, there are mechanical sights with a fiber optic front sight and universal mounts for various belts.
The Escort Slugger Tact version features a larger handguard, a separate ergonomic pistol grip, an ergonomic rail-mounted handguard, a low-profile stock with five ammo slots, and an enlarged recoil pad.

The suggested retail price for the Hatsan Escort Slugger Series will start at $210.
