The KS-K shotgun is manufactured in Russia by Izhmash factory as a dedicated police weapon. It is based on the Saiga-12 shotgun, which, in turn, is an adaptation of the famous Kalashnikov AK assault rifle. The KS-K is a shotgun is gas operated, semi-automatic weapon. It uses modified Saiga-12 (Kalashnikov-type) action with rotary bolt. Unlike the original Saiga-12, gas system of the KS-K has no manual adjustments. Feed is from detachable plastic box magazines with 4 or 8 round capacity, and weapon is provided with plastic magwell to facilitate faster reloads. Safety lever is of standard AK-style lever type.

Another “tactical” feature of the 18,5 KS-K shotgun is bolt hold-open device, which locks the bolt open once its magazine runs dry. To disengage the bolt hold-open device, shooter must pull the bolt handle all the way back and then release it, as there is no dedicated bolt release lever or button.

Other standard features include hinged, top-opening receiver cover with integral Picatinny rail, AK-74M-style side-folding buttstock, made of plastic and equipped with rubber recoil pad, and another short length of the Picatinny rail under the gas block. Standard sights are of rifle type (apparently, unmodified AK-74 rear sight is used on KS-K), with adjustable rear sight with U-notch, and protected front post.
