One Of The World’s Fastest Firing Shotguns: The Fostech Origin 12

The Origin 12 Fostech has the title (firing at semi-auto) of being called one of the world’s fastest firing shotguns out there today, but that’s for you to decide. Goodness knows, there’s alot of shotguns out there to choose from, so what makes this shotgun better than the rest ? Well, for one thing, the low recoil and lack of muzzle flip, clean and reliable running, good balance, and high capacity all add up to a competent fighting tool which is also much fun in use. The AR-like manual of arms allows paying more attention to the situation and less to trying to keep the weapon topped off with individual shells. Hard nickel finish upgrade is also worthwhile improvement to simplify maintenance.

I would prefer to use the standard box magazine that comes with it, but that’s just me. The drum mag for this piece just seems too bulky for my tastes, that is unless there’s a zombie apocalypse. These shotguns do have an impressive rate of fire, but along with that comes a hefty price tag. Coming in between $2,700.00 on up to $3,000.00, your average working man would find it difficult to afford and a married man with a family, would find it rather difficult to talk his spouse into such a purchase, that is, unless she’s a die hard “prepper” like her husband. But, ignoring the cost…this is a really great weapon, watch the video and see for yourself.
