Fusil à Pompe SPAS 12 Airsoft
Short history of the Franchi SPAS-12
The Franchi SPAS-12 is a combat rifle designed by the Italian firearms manufacturer Franchi from 1979 to 2000. The SPAS-12 is a dual mode rifle, which can be used for both semi-automatic and pump action operation. The SPAS-12 has been used by many armies and police forces around the world, but the rifle has also been offered to the civilian market. The Franchi SPAS-12 has also made numerous appearances in movies, TV shows and video games.
The SPAS-12 was originally designed as a rugged military rifle and was named a special purpose automatic shotgun. In 1990, Franchi renamed the SPAS-12 to "Sporting Purpose Automatic Shotgun" in order to continue selling the gun in gun stores. Following the U.S. government's ban on the sale of assault weapons to individuals, SPAS-12 imports were halted. The ban expired in September 2004, but Franchi had discontinued production of the SPAS-12 in 2000 to concentrate on manufacturing the SPAS-15 model.
