Fabarm STF 12 Pistolgrip FE Shotgun

    Fabarm STF12

    Here in the United States, Fabarm USA seems to be focused on sports shooting shotguns, and the Fabarm SpA STF 12 Professional shotguns are not imported (or at least not marketed if they are.) That’s really unfortunate as the guns look very interesting in a self defense or law enforcement role.

    Take, for example, the STF 12 Pistolgrip FE shotgun.

    This tri-tone pump gun can be had in a range of lengths with a barrel length choice of 11″, 14″, 18″, 20″ and 22″. Since these guns use a tubular magazine, capacity is largely dependent on tube length. With the 11″ barrel, five rounds can be held in the mag. The quantity increases to six with the 18″ barrel and to seven with the 20″ and 22″ barrels.

    Ghost ring sights are standard, but the gun also has a Picatinny rail for adding another sighting tool like a red dot optic. There are also short Picatinny rails on three sides of the pump.

    The stock is fixed on this model, but can be folding on some of the company’s other STF 12 scatterguns. A pistol grip is also standard from Fabarm. Cue Rage Against the Machine…

    While not an overview of this specific shotgun, the below video can still offer some insight into the STF 12 line as a whole. It appears they have Instructor Zero doing the modeling. The video shows the gun in action, but also shows the gun with accessories and the ability to remove the top Picatinny rail.
