The Franchi Variopress 612 Defense is a well designed and technically sophisticated 12-gauge auto-loading shotgun, featuring an 18 ½” barrel with a true cylinder bore. A no-nonsense firearm for protecting the home, farm or boat.

A strong and lightweight receiver houses a multi-lugged rotary bolt which locks directly to the chrome lined and steel shot proofed barrel. The patented Variopress gas piston is the key to the all-around performance of the 612 Defense. This innovative system is made from steel forgings, no flimsy stamped parts to break from normal usage. The 612 Defense incorporates a heavy spring around the piston which compresses under high gas pressure, allowing excess gas to escape. It acts as a shock absorber in the linkage for a more gentle rearward push against the chrome-plated piston and action bars, thus reducing wear and tear on both gun and shooter. It can handle all kinds of defense ammo, from 3” slugs to light bird shot loads.

Safety is also of paramount concern, the Variopress 612 Defense uses a patented dual safety system which block the sear and removes tension from the hammer spring if the bolt is out of battery. A magazine cut off feature allows the chambered shell to be removed while leaving the rounds in the magazine untouched. That shell can simply be replace, or you can depress the cartridge drop lever on the carrier, releasing a round from the magazine, and then pull back and release the operating handle to chamber the shell.
