American Tactical may have cemented their name through more modern, obviously tactical firearm offerings as their name implies, but that does not mean they are short on utilitarian choices in guns like sporting double-barrel shotguns. Their ATI Crusader Sport SGD was one new option for trap and clay pigeon shooters that was on display at SHOT Show 2020, and we got an up-and-close look at it.
For people hunting down an over/under shotgun with modern features, but an affordable price-point, the Crusader Sport SGD may be right up your shooting alley. It boasts fiber optic sights, multiple gauge offerings, and an attractive oil-finished walnut stock.
