Our Assessment: The Terminator, Robocop, Jurassic Park. These are just a few of the movies this incredible shotgun has been featured in.  Even if it weren’t a movie star, the SPAS-12 would shine on its own. Originally designed as a rugged military shotgun, the Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun(SPAS) makes for a great close combat weapon for home defense. The signature hook has a few uses but none quite as cool as shooting this shotgun one-handed. Pump or semi-auto and very hearty. In its original factory configuration and condition from 1982 this shotgun is all the more rare.  This one just needs to be in your collection. Please see details below, our photos, and good luck on your bid!
