EAA just launched versions of its popular Churchill line of semi-auto and pump-action shotguns. But this time it’s all about home defense. The EAA Churchill Optics Tactical line brings upgraded components and features in two new 20-gauge home defense guns. The new shotguns come in two versions: the 220 Optics Tactical semi-auto and 620 Optics Tactical pump-action.
EAA Churchill Optics Tactical Shotguns
First on the list is the 220 Optics Tactical shotgun, which features a checkered pistol grip stock. It comes with a semi-enhanced loading port for fast loading. Meanwhile, accessible controls inspire confidence in stressful situations. EAA/Akkar machined the optics rail into the top of the receiver; it enables mounting optics low, close to the bore.
The shotgun features a shortened, 18.5-inch barrel. It proves a highly maneuverable length for operating in close quarters. A breaching choke tube comes with a glass breaker, which adds some nice versatility.
Next is the Churchill 620 Optics Tactical shotgun, which comprises a home defense version of EAA’s popular Churchill 20-gauge pump gun. It brings enhancements for work as a low-recoil home defense gun. It comes with a pistol grip stock for better control. The shotgun includes a breaching choke tube, enhanced loading port and accessible controls. An optics rail rounds out a versatile platform in a pump-gun design.
Both guns feature a 5+1 capacity. The 620 has an MSRP of just $427, while the 220 comes in at $561. Both options look solid for home defense. And with their reasonable MSRPs, they might be worth checking out. For even more info, please visit eaacorp.com.
