DefenseReview’s (DR) been doing this long enough that it’s pretty hard to get us truly excited about a firearm, but the Genesis Arms Gen-12 mag-fed (magazine-fed) semi-auto 12-gauge combat/tactical shotgun’s managed to do it, since, well, it’s an AR-10-type mag-fed semi-auto 12-gauge shotgun that appears to be reliable–and that’s a pretty big deal.
Not only that, but there’s some pretty cool 12-gauge suppressors (JK 195 SGX 12GA and JK 195 VERSAX 12ga being made by JK Armament Suppressors that’ll attach to it, Taran Tactical Innovations (TTI) is making a customized version of it called the TTI JW4 Dracarys Gen-12 Shotgun, and that gun will be featured in “John Wick: Chapter 4”.
There’s A LOT going on there, and it’s all good.
The Gen-12 Shotgun sports a DPMS gen-1-patterned AR-10 lower receiver mated to Genesis Arms’ proprietary 12-gauge upper receiver with right-side charging handle. Interestingly, there’s no gas system, as the Gen-12 operates via a short-recoil system with free-float reciprocating barrel.
The standard capacity magazine holds 10 rounds, but a plus-2 magazine extension is available for it, giving you a 12+1 round total capacity for battle. A prototype 15-round drum magazine is currently under development. It should be noted that there’s also a 5-round mag available, and the plus-2 mag extension is compatible with it, giving you 7 rounds.
There are several Gen-12 variants, including the Gen-12 18″ Shotgun, Gen-12 SBM 7″ SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun) SBR-type shotgun, Gen-12 SBM 10.5″ Firearm, and the aforementioned TTI JW4 Dracarys Gen-12 Shotgun.
