Fostech Origin 12 semi automatic shotgun with Rex Silentium shotgun suppressor.

Does it recoil? yes, but not the way you think. Rather than the traditional shotgun kick we all expect to deal with, this was more like a shove which was confusing as hell the first couple of times. Then it is just getting used to the motion and you do get back on target much faster. Now, do take my report with several grains of salt since my experience with shotguns is barely above my experience with phasers and trebuchets.

Oh, I almost forgot: That thing shoots very fast as the photo shows.

Damn fine piece of craftsmanship.

  1. I’d be interested in experiencing how the ‘felt recoil’ would be when the 40-60% pull-push purchase technique is employed on this rifle. I see there is a nine-month wait for it, unless I can find one at one of the local shops. It’s amazing how light the recoil and muzzle rise are reduced when you push the gun toward the target using your support arm positioned as close to the body as it can be on the handguard. Like to know if it can out-perform my heavily modified Mossberg SPX 930 ghost-loaded with ten rounds.

  2. 930 is an awesome piece.. I am very partial to my Franchi Law12.. it too is very fast. But very rare..
    Hobby Lobby sells a model kit of a trebuchet. I put it together and it works great. It will fling quarters across the room.. I bought it to scale up to one that we can fling car motors with….

  3. Whew if I ever get FU money one of these in a short barreled option is for sure on the list. Looking good there with three shells in the air

  4. So I’m here, sitting at the breakfast nook, sipping my coffee and browsing through GFZ recent posts.
    Mrs B wanders by in search of caffeine, just as I’m looking at the picture at the top of this post. Looks over my shoulder, says “No” in exactly the same voice she uses to tell our dog not to jump up on guests. Keeps heading for coffee.
    The worst part was maybe the look the dog gave me like, “What did you do this time, B?”
