HK/Fabarm 12 ga questions

Anyone have any experience with them? I was out looking at shotguns for home defense and I ran across a FP6A1 that is silver/black with a pistol grip and a telescoping stock. The price wasn't bad compared to the other guns I looked at and I was thinking about going back tomorrow and picking it up.

It looks similar to this one

That's a sick looking shotgun.

I was thinking the same thing, but it would probably be a little while though.

I finally found a picture of one that looks like it except for the colors.

I've never heard of those guns, but that first picture is awesome....that is one sharp looking shotty.

Remember, some people are alive simply because it is illegal to kill them.

So far I've found out that when H&K's deal with Benelli was up in 1998 they switched to Fabarm for a few years. Fabarm is a company out of Italy, that is still around, and they make some very nice shotguns. I guess the demand wasn't high enough in the US at the time so the deal only lasted for a few years. From what I've read they are good weapons but hard to find due to limited production. I never knew they had shotguns and when I saw it my ears perked up...the price isn't too bad either. It's a little bit less than a Mossberg 500 Tactical persuader.

I'm gonna keep my eyes open for one....if I happen across one that may have to be an impulse purchase.
