As new SPAS 12-Original 1989 Import ~ Was priced at $1800.00 reduced from $1650, and now reduced to $1550.00 shipped! This is it.
I have an original & pristine condition SPAS 12 shotgun in the pistol grip /rifle stock configuration. This was my father's shotgun, and he never used it. He passed away, and it was gifted to me. Everything is as nice & original as it was when my Dad first bought it... I've put maybe 50rds through it-not even. It is a safe queen, and needs a good home.
This SPAS, compared to others I've seen out there is an absolutely beautiful example of this "Special Purpose Automatic Shotgun" or SPAS. This weapon is not imported anymore. So here is your chance to own a piece of history.
This is the 1989 SPAS 12 with the push button safety. This is probably one of few in the US that is as new. This version was banned in 1989 by George Bush Senior. Later a banned compliant model came out and that was banned by the Clinton Administration in 1994. Then they were completely banned from importation to the U.S. in 1999. This is a very rare shotgun.
The price may seem high as you could get them in the late 1970s and early 1980s for around $600. But keep in mind there are many of the SPAS 12s out there with the recalled safeties, which I would highly recommend not buying. They misfire just by putting them on safe, as well as a few other ways. Also remember this is not the LAW 12 or SAS 12. From time to time you will see these on Gunbroker.com in good condition with hundreds to thousands of rounds through them from $1000-$1275. Sometimes even with the bad safeties.
A point to consider; A lot of people look for the SPAS 12 shot gun with the folding stock. And while it looks cool & is what is used in all the movies that made the SPAS famous over the last 25years; The configuration that I have it in, is less common which gives it a more collectible status. But even better, the pistol grip/rifle stock actually takes off almost 5lbs in total weight of the weapon which gives the shooter an advantage & major control over the entire weapon system.
If you really want to have the folding stock, they are available. I worked with a guy I met while working for Bushmaster as an M16 Armorer here in Maine. We were doing armorers classes with Blackwater trainees, and he had brought his SPAS-12 with him to the class on our last day. His SPAS-12 came in the same configuration as my SPAS-12 but he had a folding stock made in LA. The company custom makes them to Franchi specs for a very fair price. My friend that had one made, did it about a year and a half ago. And it is identical to the Franchi folder. No difference & Pure Quality.
I prefer the weapon this way though. Out of the rounds that I put through it ~ 15rds were run through it in semi-auto mode and in a defensive drill. The light weight Benelli M1 S90 "Type" (It is practically identical to the M1 S90 but even lighter) pistol grip/rifle stock makes this weapon a true devastator. Every round hit center mass before the first empty shell hit the ground.
