The Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun features a pump-action mechanism, a type of action where the shooter manually pumps the forend back and forth to cycle the shotgun’s action. When the forend is pulled back, it extracts and ejects the spent shell from the chamber. When the forend is pushed forward, it loads a fresh shell from the magazine tube into the chamber and closes the action, readying the shotgun for the next shot.

The Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun is easy to disassemble and maintain. This makes it easy to clean and service, which helps to ensure that the shotgun remains in top condition and functions reliably over time.


The Shotgun features a manual cross-bolt safety designed to prevent accidental discharge and enhance the overall safety of the firearm. The safety is located on the rear of the trigger guard and can be easily accessed by the thumb.

To engage the safety on the Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun, you’ll need to push the safety button forward. It will block the trigger and prevent it from firing. To disengage the safety, simply slide the safety button back, allowing the trigger to move freely and enable firing. The red band on the safety button tells you the firearm is off safety.


The Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun comes equipped with fiber optic sights. I liked them and wished more 12 gauges came with this sight configuration. Having LASIK can make some sight configurations not ideal; these were great.

Fiber optic sights use a small tube or rod of fiber optic material designed to gather and amplify ambient light. This allows the shooter to easily acquire their target and maintain a clear sight picture, even in low-light environments. The fiber optic material is typically colored, with red and green being the most common options. These bright colors help the sight stand out against the background, making it easier to focus on the target.

The Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun features fiber optic sights that are both adjustable and durable. The sights can be easily adjusted for windage and elevation, allowing shooters to fine-tune their aim for maximum accuracy.

The rear sight is a green dot, and the front is red; it might be distracting, but it worked for me.

Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun Review Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the Uzkon AS-14 Pump Shotgun is a comfortable and versatile shotgun suited for a wide range of shooting applications. It easily accommodates aftermarket parts like sights, lights, grips, lasers, and other accessories to add additional customization options.

At an MSRP of $249 and the ability to pick it up on sale considerably cheaper. This a respectable option for someone looking for a affordable, quality 12 gauge for home protection or recreational shooting.
