Looking for home defense 12 gauge. Saw this Panzer Arms semi in a few videos and reading owner comments led me to this item for quality, dependability and cost. Grab-A-Gun has the best price(my 3rd purchase) and fast shipping to my FFL. Also...... they actually have the gun in stock.

Winston L on Mar 12, 2019
I have read that the 10 rd mags have had problems?
Philip on Jul 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have had a few that didnt cycle correct. I video taped firing my AK12 and watched in slow motion and saw the shell not in preload position before the bolt came forward so I took them apart and examined them and figured out it was the spring strenth ( linear push) was weaker than other magazines that worked well. I just stretched the spring out to acommodate for the extra linear strenght i needed and they shoot with no flaws. The cycle rate on these AK style actions are very fast so the shell has got to be there fully seated and waiting when the when the bolt comes forward!
How is the recoil compared to other shotguns?
Harrison on Aug 4, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Recoil is about the same as any other semi-auto gun. My first time I took it out to pattern it, I had 4 or 5 shells not eject properly- using cheap low brass #8 bird shot. Put 50 rounds through it that day. Went home, did a real fast, not thorough cleaning and lubed the gun. Took it back out and put 200 shells through it- no feeding problems at all- same cheap bird shot. Gun worked like a champ all day.
what size clip can be used on this shotgun can a drum be used ?
Kendall on Oct 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The biggest mag I've seen is a 10 rounder! I got them on grabagun. It may be a way to mod a drum mag to fit but with the price of drum mags I'm not willing to try it. Hopefully they start making drums for the AR12 soon
Will the threaded barrel receive an actual muzzle brake/device?
Jeffrey on Dec 22, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can add several types of muzzle brakes on this weapon as well as an silencer. Ensure you stay legal within your state.
Santos on Sep 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I said in my review that I have had no issues running anything once broken in. It will cycle 2 3/4" target club loads just fine now. I ran slugs and 00 buck for break in. Since then the club loads have been great without a jam. Any jams I've had were caused during fine tuning the 10rd mag, not the ammo.
Can this be used for 3 Gun?
Lionel on Jan 7, 2019
BEST ANSWER: From what I understand about 3 gun is based solely on the one I participated in. The rules for that was it had to be a traditional style shotgun. So to answer your question based on my knowledge is that it could not be used. Now you would need to check the places that you shoot and see what their rules are concerning shotguns. I’ve even read recently that some 3 fun competitions are allowing dual guns. Basically shotgun and rifle in the same frame. A hybrid such as my ATI AR15.

This shotgun is well made, well balanced and fun to shoot. I will be using this shotgun for deer season. It is priced well below the Remington 1100 semi. auto. This AR-12 does everything that the 1100 would do for well over half the cost.

A total blast to shoot. High brass shells seemed to be to much and wouldn’t cycle. Put low brass shells in and shot about 50 shells without a hiccup.

Panzer Arms AR-12
The Panzer AR-12 is everything that it's advertised to be. Great quality for the money. As other people have suggested you should break this gun in with heavy loads. I used 20 rounds of 3 inch buckshot. Awesome gun and Grabagun was great to deal with.

So far so good
Current score is a 5 based on the fact it's pretty badass. Light weight, feels natural. Haven't got to shoot it yet. Soon.
Am slightly annoyed with the multiple steps to break it down... But... Will give updated review when I shoot it
