Fostech Origin 12 Modular Shotgun

SKU: FT-12

* Required Fields




The Fostech ORIGIN 12 is a gas-operated, box magazine fed, semi-automatic tactical shotgun with a patented gas system design.  The Origin 12 features a quick change, 18.5 inch - 12 gauge barrel with a 2 3/4 inch chamber, forward charging handle, ambidextrous safety and magazine release, in-line detachable magazine, infinitely adjustable gas block, multi-caliber receiver (other calibers will soon be available), folding buttstock, accessory rails, ejection port dust cover, and Diamond-Head flip up front and rear sights. 

The ORIGIN 12 gas system bleeds from the chamber rather than farther down the barrel.  This makes the gun very reliable with a wide array of different 12 gauge ammunition.  The gas system is simple to adjust and is designed in such a way that a 12 gauge shotgun shell can be used as a wrench to turn the adjustment for various types of ammunition.  

The ORIGIN 12 is designed with single handed operation in mind.  The safety, magazine release, bolt release, and trigger can all be operated with one hand.  The firearm also has a direct, in-line magazine feed which allows for quick magazine changes.  The buttstock uses a mil-spec AR-15 buffer tube with a MFT buttstock that can be folded to the side when not needed.  The barrel is externally threaded (thread protector included) and will accept a choke tube adapter (sold seperately) that allows the operator to mount Remchoke tubes at the end of the barrel.  The ORIGIN 12 is designed to break down into two components, the barrel assembly and the lower receiver assembly.  This modular design makes the firearm easy to clean, store and transport.  The firearm parts are machined from tool steel and heat treated.  The barrel, receiver and internals are hard nickel coated.  The dust cover, handguard, and accessory rails are manufactured from impact resistant polymer.  The ORIGIN 12 weighs 9lbs 4oz and is 36.25 inches long with the buttstock collapsed.
