I am looking for a used Franchi SPAS 12. I looked on gunsamerica.com but all I found were extremely expensive pieces. I would like to find one for around $700 , if possible.
Maybe you can clue me in on some other internet sites.:cool:

For reasons having nothing to do with their effectiveness, the SPAS job is quite expensive. $700 is at the low end of the prices I've seen.

And truthfully, you're getting little that a more common shotgun won't supply. A Police turnin 870 with a few mods and addons will run you about $3-400. Spend the difference on ammo and training, and you'll be better off, IMO.

If your heart's set on the SPAS, of course, go ahead and get it. Just don't expect it to do much that 870(or other good US made shotguns) won't.

You will be very hard pressed to find one in that price range. However, there is a want-ad portion of http://spas12.com which can be found at


It looks real cool, but is impractical. Good luck in your search.
