Other military features include a folding metal stock, heavy heat shield in the handguard for sustained fire, and a device allowing specialised rounds to be loaded into the chamber without emptying the magazine first. All of these features make the SPAS-12 a versatile weapon, but also make it heavy, mechanically complex and expensive. Still, it remains a popular weapon with police and Special Forces.
The SPAS-12 weighs 4.4kg, holds 8+1 2 ¾ inch shells in the internal tube magazine, and has an effective range of 40 metres.
