NRA Gun of the Week: Fabarm Professional STF-12 Shotgun

American Rifleman's Christopher Olsen checks out the Fabarm Professional STF-12, an NFA- and import-compliant pump-action shotgun brought to our shores by Fabarm USA, a subsidiary of Fabarm based in Brescia, Italy. The Professional STF-12 utilizes the pump-action mode of operation and features an 18” barrel chambered for up to 3” 12-ga. shotshells. A fixed polymer buttstock is standard for U.S. import, but length of pull is shortened to accommodate heavy clothing and gear. Additional features include: Quick-detach Picatinny rail for use of optics; LPA adjustable sights; door-breaching muzzle brake to help mitigate recoil; and soft-touch over-molding on the shotgun’s gripping surfaces to enhance purchase. For more, check out this week’s NRA Gun of the Week video.
