Product Information & Specs

Seller Description

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.

Shopping at gives you the backing of a company that is committed to your satisfaction.  And unlike our competitors, it extends beyond the buying process.  We get the FFL from your store – others make you find it, copy it, and fax it.  We have a generous return policy, and handle everything – you don’t have to go back to the store.  And our Rangemasters are here to answer all your questions about our products or process.  We're bringing a level of service to the online gun buying experience that is unheard of.


Many online gun sales actually take away from your local community.  Instead of buying a gun that’s on your local store’s shelf, most retailers drop ship it from a warehouse in another state.  At, if an FFL is part of our network, we sell THEIR guns first whenever possible.  That way, we’re helping small businesses in your community AND if they have it in stock, you can pick your gun up IMMEDIATELY – it’s how business should be done.


Most everything can be easily bought online these days.  But for some reason, buying a gun online can be complicated.  Most websites are poorly organized, don’t tell you a lot about what you’re buying, and leave you on your own to figure out what you want. is built to be simple – easily organized products, useful descriptions from experts, and support to guide you to the right choice.  Spend your time enjoying the gun you want, not getting frustrated with a complex website that makes gun buying hard.
