The video, which has gone viral with nearly 4 million views, starts off with the host immediately firing the Fostech Origin 12. He mentions that the shotgun is in a short configuration with the Salvo 12 suppressor, a 93 ¼ inch barrel, and a 30 round drum. He then mentions that “this is one of the fastest shotguns in the world.”

After going over several more details about the shotgun, he mentions that it’s now time to shoot some watermelons. In the background of the video, there are around a dozen watermelons in a line that are no match for the powerful shotgun, as he easily shoots all of them. Toward the end, he clarifies that the Fostech Origin 12 is a semi-auto shot gun and not a machine gun. The difference is that automatic weapons fire multiple rounds with each trigger press while semi-auto weapons fire one round per trigger press.

The Origin 12 packs some serious power (YouTube)

Expect for the Origin 12 to give your shoulder quite a beating though as it creates an intense kickback when fired. This is a necessary trade-off as the shotgun packs a lot of power and is a serious weapon for responsible firearm enthusiasts.

It is perfectly legal to buy this shotgun as a civilian if you satisfy the necessary requirements in your state, which may consist of passing a background back and completing some safety courses. With this firearm’s high price tag, it’s likely that only the most serious collectors can afford the shotgun.
