With the rise of the Personal Combat Exoskeleton, which both allowed soldiers to carry larger, more powerful weapons and required them to do so in order to counter opposing PCEs, many conventional infantry weapons became obsolete, including the standard KSG shotguns in service with the USMC at the time. In order to keep up with this new battlefield Kel-Tec released an updated version of their revolutionary shotgun; the KSG-10. As it's name implies, the KSG-10 is essentially a standard KSG chambered for the massive 10 gauge, 3" magnum shotshells (Contemporary weapons that fire this round, such as the Ithaca 10 gauge, are capable of takeing a Humvee out of action by blowing off the entire wheel with just one shot). It retains the revolutionary duel-tube system of it's predecessor which either allows for a 12 round capacity, or the capability to carry two different types of shell (Buckshot and Slugs, for example) and switch between them at will. But it is also much more: the '10 model has a re-enforced titanium frame and mechanism, making it one of the toughest shotguns yet, a ventilated pump handle cover to help disperse heat generated by the huge 10 gauge round, a flash hider/breaching muzzle, with screw mounts for a silencer (Recon/Spec-Ops version) a new, more ergonomic grip and cheek-rest and an automatic tube switch so that the user no longer has to manually switch tubes after one runs dry, while still leaving the manual option.
