It seems just about everybody has an AR-15 nowadays. But not everyone has an AR-15 with a shotgun attachment.

The fine folks at Crye Precision are working to change that with their new Six12 Shotgun.

The SIX12 is named after its design as a six-shot, revolver style shotgun. Listed by the company as “ideal for breaching, home defense, and law enforcement uses”, the gun comes in several models, including a full length standalone version.

But what really has people talking is that the SIX12 comes with all the equipment needed to mount it to any standard rail system on an AR-15 (or other rifle of your choice).

That’s right, an AR with a six shot, 12 gauge shotgun attachment is just what the doctor ordered.

Some information from the Crye Precision website:


We are very pleased to introduce the SIX12™. Originally designed to provide a safer, faster and more efficient means of breaching doors, the SIX12™ is a 6-round, 12-gauge, cylinder-fed shotgun that can be mounted to most AR platforms.

Its unique design puts the weight of the gun much closer to the shooter making it much easier to carry and use. The SIX12™ is extremely compact—critical when mounting it under an AR.

Although the SIX12™ was originally developed to improve breaching, its modular design and the ever expanding variety of 12-gauge rounds make it ideal for many home defense and law enforcement uses. Made in the US from US materials.


  • Compact and attachable to AR rail platforms
  • Removable 6-round cylindrical magazines
  • Accepts 12-gauge shells up to 3”
  • Interchangeable barrel
  • Double-action semiautomatic
  • Allows new options for force escalation
  • Ideal for breaching, home defense, and law enforcement uses

And, in what may be the greatest “shut up and take my money” idea ever, it’s available in a standalone, integrally suppressed version:

6-Twelve standalone

Sure it’s a short barreled shotgun (SBS) with an integral suppressor so you’ll be filing plenty of National Firearms Act (NFA) paperwork.
