The FN P-12 shotgun is a pump-action 12-gauge shotgun designed and manufactured by FN Herstal in Belgium.[2] The weapon, which was introduced during the summer of 2012, is intended to compliment the FN SLP.[1]

The P-12 has a MIL-STD-1913 (Picatinny) accessory rail and comes standard with a flip-up rear sight and a fiber-optic front sight which provide a 14 in (36 cm) sight radius.[2] It also features a trigger pull of 6.2 to 7.3 lbs.[2]

Design[edit]

The P-12 has a receiver constructed from aircraft-grade aluminum and the matte-black synthetic stock features a non-slip recoil pad fit with steel sling swivel studs.[2]
