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 wasn’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. This one just needs to be in your collection. Good Luck!
