Weapon Background[edit]

The KS-23 is a Russian shotgun, although because it uses a rifled barrel it is officially designated by the Russian military as a carbine. KS stands for Karabin Spetsialniy, "Special Carbine". It is renowned for its large caliber, firing a 23 mm round, equating to 6.27 gauge using the British and American standards of shotgun gauges and approximately 4 gauge using the current European standards (based on the metric CIP tables), making it the largest-bore shotgun in use today.

  • The KS-23 is the shotgun with the largest bore size,but curiously it may not be the most powerful one. A 23mm buckshot is roughly equal to a 3.5inch 12gauge 00 buckshot. Apparently the designer chose such a big bore size due to the large variety of non-lethal rounds It can fire, not for maximum firepower.
  • Another prototype of KS-23, KS-23K uses bullpup mechanism and later used by Russian MVD. Instead using tubular magazine that could only held 3 shells, KS-23K used detachable box magazine that held up to 7 shells while uses a same ammunition and same mechanism as the earlier version does.
  • The KS-23's barrel was originally made out 23 mm automatic aircraft guns barrels that had manufacturing flaws that rendered them unable to withstand the higher pressure of 23mm cannon ammunition, but could handle the lower pressure yield of a shotgun round.
