The Saiga 12 and Vepr 12, both based on the Kalashnikov action have been very dominant in the semi-auto shotgun world. The AR12 is an interesting response to the lack of an actual AR-15 type shotgun. There is the AKDAL MK1919 but it isn’t compatible with most AR parts.
Technically though the AR-12 upper will only fit on AR-10 lowers. That brings up a design issue. The AR-12 is not chambered in traditional 12 gauge shotgun shells; it uses its own proprietary all polymer ammo. MSRP for the upper, which supposedly $1,950, while a box of 100 rounds of the special ammo is about $300.
