Headline: 

The Franchi SPAS-12 is a high performance combat shotgun designed manufactured by the Italian company Franchi S.p.A..

The SPAS-12 was developed and designed during the 1970s as a law enforcement or semi-automatic military shotgun. Production of the shotgun began in October 1979. The Franchi PAS-12 can function on two distinct settings. The first setting is "automatic" (more accurately, semi automatic, self-loading) - the foregrip of the shotgun is locked forward and a unique gas system loads the next round without any additional effort from the operator. In automatic mode, the gun is capable of firing around 4 rounds per second, one round per each trigger pull. The second setting of the shotgun is pump-action - the foregrip of the weapon must be manually pumped back and forth smoothly after every shot to eject the used shell and load a fresh round from the internal magazine. Pump Action mode is mandatory to reliably fire low-pressure ammunition such as the less lethal bean bags or the more lethal tear gas rounds. Switching between firing modes on the shotgun is performed by pressing a small button under the foregrip, and sliding the foregrip slightly backwards or forwards until it clicks into position.

The SPAS-12 also has an exclusive magazine cut-off feature that, when activated, disallows the loading of a fresh round from the internal magazine when the slide is opened. This feature permits the operator to load a specialized round into the distinct chamber without emptying the entire magazine first. Early Franchi SPAS-12 models additionally featured a lever-type safety, but this feature often tended to malfunction. The lever safety was later replaced by a reliable push-button safety.

In 1983, the gun was introduced to the United States, where it was marketed as a sporting shotgun to help bypass laws that would normally label it as illegal for civilian ownership. As a result, the SPAS acronym officially stands for "Sporting Purpose Automatic Shotgun". However, military-oriented features like a heavy heat shield for sustained fire increase the weight of the weapon to the point where it can become unwieldy for hunting or competition shooting. For this reason, there exist popular reinterpretations of the acronym, such as "Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun" or "Special Purpose Assault Shotgun".

Legal Status in the United States

US firearm laws, in recent years, have universally blocked the importation of the SPAS-12 shotgun, because the shotgun fits under the profile of a military shotgun (which is defined as an illegal destructive device). Transfers and re-sales within the country are generally unobstructed, but few SPAS-12s are being imported from foreign countries. Additionally, in 2000 Franchi stopped production of the SPAS-12 altogether, and Franchi has since shifted its entire marketing focus towards the new and improved SPAS-15. Together, these drastic events have made the SPAS-12 a true collector's item both in the United States and abroad.

SPAS12 pistol grip

I have a pistol grip I could sell you. I had another but sold that. It's now a rare item and I had to pay a lot for it about 5 years ago so I'm afraid it would be expensive, but at least I have one.
Send me your email address and I'll send you a photo if you like.

Hello,
I recently created an account on this site and saw that you are selling parts for early model SPAS 12's. I am missing the stock fastener and stock fastener washer for mine. If you still have these parts are you willing to sell just them? If so, please write back and I'm sure we can come to a reasonable price. Thank you for your time.

SPAS 12 parts for sale

I recently acquired a SPAS 12, it was missing two things 1) missing front sight on the barrel (SPAS 12 barrels;not LAWS) 2) Folding / Fixed Stock. Purchasing just the " FRONT SIGHT" is probably out of the question; I'll probably have to purchase another barrel w/ sight. But if you have any or All the parts, I would GREATLY appreciate a reply! Thanx....

His site his rules I guess. Wants to keep the market cornered. Oh well. I do not know what I will do but it does not concern me too much as this is not the way I make my living. I may start a site. I think my brother already secured a name which would be good to use for start a tactical firearms site and board may persue that if time allows.

If you still want a mag tube let me know and I can send pics. If you have e-mailed pm me with your e-mail and I will send you pics that way.

Re parts

I have found bumpers that should be suitable for the Spas 12 folding stock. These are the bumpers that would go on the top of the stock to stop it from hitting the reciever when stock is collapsed. Steel Rubber products sells them there are 2 options part # 33-0123-42 and 33-0368-30 not exactly the same dimensions but close and should work. I am looking into finding a better match. Looks like GM part #s 3688811, 3655015, and chrysler 972724 might be good matches as well.

Not selling these just throwing out the info for folks to use.

i will be making other spas 12 parts. The "new style" recoil buffer will be tested this weekend, i have it installed on my SPAS 12. Chris's SPAS 12 recoil buffer requires you to remove some material either from your handle or reviver, mine does not (I don't like to destroy or damage my guns, why should you?). I will be uploading Pics. Assuming testing goes well, I will have them priced (lower than Chris) and ready to ship by November 19th.

***Pre-order***

ak47help@hotmail.com

Just Add:

your name
Email
and how many buffers you want (only taking new style only)

Old style will be my next project!

I have one in excellent condition, and it has the newer cross bolt safety. I was pondering the idea of selling it. It seems like the asking price on these is now around 1500.00

whats the deal

full stock or folder push button safty or lever 5 shot 6 shot 7 shot 8 shot is the site in the front or dose it have the site before the barrle extison stock style if its a folder dose it latch on to the rear site or is it ear type whats the condition of recoil buffer replaced or original is new style
cylinder shaped or old style cone shape this info would sell your gun faster if we knew the answers to these questions would be nice and there is a classifeds section of this site that you could sell it on for free

its better to burn out than fade away

I have a SPAS 12 with a folding stock for sale. I am the second owner and bought it back in 94 or 95. The gun sits in my gun safe and I have only fired about 50 rounds through it. The gun is complete and I have the original strap and manual that came with it when it was new. It is in very good condition. I am located in Maryland. I dont really know what it is worth because I havent seen one for sale at a gun show for a long time. A local gun dealer told me it should be worth $1500.00 or more. If anyone is interested please let me know. I have a paypal account so you could pay with a credit card if you prefer. Thanks

Value?

From what I have been able to tell, if they are in VG condition, hook stock model anywhere from $900.00 to $1,500.00. $1,000 to $1,200.00 seems to be the adv. going price on the gun boards as of 1/5/11

Sportman's Guide has one. Brownells might be another good site.

SPAS parts

I'm surprised it isn't the aluminum receivers more frequently. Apparently, there was an issue in the design in which this plastic part prevented the aluminum from over-stressing. Aluminum has a poor tolerance for metal fatigue. Once you start getting some micro fractures, it's just a matter of time before it goes kerblooey. Anyway, either through removal or wear, this plastic piece seems to failing which causes the receiver to fail.
I personally think the SPAS 12 is over-rated and the only reason they are popular is because they were banned. you can get a tactically Remmy that performs better and is more reliable.
