Short historical presentation of the Franchi SPAS-12

The Franchi SPAS-12 is a battle 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 operation in semi-automatic mode or in shotgun mode. The SPAS-12 was used by many armies and police forces around the world, but the rifle was also offered on the civilian market. The Franchi SPAS-12 has also made numerous appearances in films, series and video games.

The SPAS-12 was designed from the start as a rugged military rifle and was named a Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun. In 1990, Franchi renamed the SPAS-12 "Sporting Purpose Automatic Shotgun", in order to continue selling the rifle in gun stores. Following the ban on the sale of assault weapons to individuals by the US government, imports of SPAS-12s were stopped. The ban expired in September 2004, but Franchi had ended production of the SPAS-12 in 2000 to focus on manufacturing the SPAS-15 model.
