The Origin-12 shotgun is a semi-automatic, magazine-fed combat/tactical shotgun developed by Fostech Outdoors: like the Saiga 12 it is designed to compete with, it is primarily based on the AK action.

One variant that was previously legally interesting is the Origin-12 SBV, a short-barrel variant fitted with an arm brace: because it is not designed to be shouldered it was legally not a shotgun, being a smoothbore it is not a handgun, because it fires a shotgun shell it was not a Destructive Device, and it did not fit the criteria for an Any Other Weapon (as it is over 26 inches long), thus legally making it a non-NFA "firearm". However, this has changed in late 2019, when the ATF reclassified this weapon as a short-barreled shotgun and a Destructive Device. Consequently, it is now an NFA regulated firearm, and is no longer in production.
