The Rickard Model 150 is a pump-action shotgun that is manufactured by Rickard Firearms & Defense. It is RF&D's first shotgun, and would become one of Rickard's most popular products, with more than 4 million shotguns sold. A semi-automatic sibling to the Model 150, the Model 175, was released in 1970, and in 1998, a special version of the Model 150, known as the Model 150 Tactical, began to enter production. It competes against the Relby Shotgun, Silverback M39, and the UAT TCS-12.
