Today, we'll discuss the Typhoon F12 Rifle, the emotions a potential buyer would feel, as well as some of the features of the carbine. The gun arrives in a plastic case, rather than a cardboard package as is frequently the case with other manufacturers, which is a welcome surprise. All of the contents of the case are placed in its specific niches, where they have virtually little risk of being harmed in any manner, even during the most careless transit.


The lucky purchaser will discover either the Sport or Basic model of the Typhoon F12 shotgun inside the package. You can select from the "sporty" version's black, green, or sand pattern colors. The "empty" gun weighs 3.98 kg; this may seem like a lot, but keep in mind that it also has mechanical sights, an extended forearm (made of aluminum alloy, not plastic), and a large muzzle brake. One DTK weighs 173 g, thus comfort comes at a cost. The gun's length, measured from the end of the rubber recoil pad to the leading edge of the DTK, when the butt is completely extended, is 105 cm. The stunning machined Typhoon F12 receiver features contemporary designs and superb craftsmanship. It is composed of light alloy. The "apper" and "lover" can be readily detached by squeezing out the two pins that typically hold its upper and lower portions together. The shutter, which is locked by the lugs of the swinging larva ascending upward, has a workspace in the upper half of the box and a trigger mechanism in the lower section. A vented Picatinny rail for mounting sights is milled into the top of the receiver.

Owners of AR15 carbines will find the magazine release button, slide release lever, and ambidextrous safety in the identical locations. A wide variety of handles for the AR-15 can be used in place of the traditional "arched" grip handle, if preferred.


The controls of the Typhoon F12 are identical to those on the AR-15 and operate in a similar manner; sports carabiners typically have a straight trigger.

You probably won't want to switch because the "original" handle has a rubberized surface and is so gripping. To make sure that the store enters the shaft when changing it, the entrance to the store has been expanded. On your first shoots with the Typhoon F12, you'll probably be shocked by the effortless fall; yet, once you get used to it, it becomes difficult to envision things any other way. Like several sporting triggers for the AR-15, the trigger itself is straight. Short Picatinny rails that are integrated to the thin, elongated forend at the end allow you to install any additional "gadgets" there, such as a front sight for a mechanical sight, an underbarrel flashlight, swivels, etc.


Similar to carbines, the Typhoon F12 butt tube is in its typical location and contains the stock. However, unlike carbines, it is empty and does not contain a recoil buffer or return spring. Under the forearm, along with the gas engine, is where the gun's return spring is situated. The plastic telescoping stock is always available to be replaced with one you prefer more. By the way, the standard stock has a backlash typical of butts of this type, as well as a height-adjustable cheek pad and rubber butt pad. A swivel, which resembles a plate with a slot and may be fitted on either the right side or the left side, is located under the nut that secures the pipe.


The gun's delivery range features two cocking handles that can be used on either side, but not simultaneously, as was already mentioned. The rifle comes with folding mechanical sights already attached, allowing the owner to practice targeted fire as soon as they buy it. A DTK is mounted on the gun's barrel. Its position is secured by two extra screws in addition to the mounting thread.

Three magazines—two with a ten-round capacity and one with a two-round capacity—along with the barrel extension already stated and a plastic box containing three replaceable choke tubes labeled "pressure cylinder," "pay," and "full choke"—are included in the case. As you can see, such an interchangeable set of DS is capable of doing whatever task its owner can assign to the Typhoon F12. The rifle also comes with a safety flag and a tiny jug of lubrication oil. Customer care implies just that!


We would especially want to thank the manufacturer for sending a full set of tools necessary for disassembling and maintaining the firearm, including a set of hex keys and specialized instruments such wrenches for the handguard nut, barrel, and stock nuts. Unexpectedly, a gadget was also discovered in the case, the design of which was obviously lifted from Magpul. The Typhoon F12 bolt can be removed from the bolt delay with the use of an expanded bolt release lever that has been moved to the right side and is installed on top of the regular lever. This design is excellent for sport rifles in the AR-15 pattern; possibly the Typhoon F12 will also benefit from this additional lever's convenience and use.


I would like to point out that the gun's design has demonstrated itself to be excellent. It is unpretentious to pollution (which was confirmed by a test for 1000 shots without cleaning, rest, or lubrication), and it is also very ergonomic, the latter quality being made possible by a configuration reminiscent of the legendary AR-15 rifle of the unforgettable Eugene Stoner. As most of the controls on the Typhoon are positioned in the same location as those on the AR-15 family of carbines, this gun layout was especially beloved by shooters who enjoy using two different types of firearms—a smoothbore gun and a rifled carbine. The mechanical component of the cannon is easy to use, and the overall design aims to minimize the toss and withdrawal of the firearm when it fires. Additionally, the quantity of imitation attempts made by rivals of this handgun testifies for itself. However, some shooters experienced malfunctions while the Typhoon was in service. It should be noted that these shooters' issues only become apparent with a sufficiently huge shot, which is just out of reach for many of them given how little and how seldom they shoot. As a result, some Typhoon F12 shotgun owners will probably never run into such issues. The statistics on Typhoon sales' breakdowns and failures, however, were meticulously gathered from the start, including with the aid of a deliberately created (partly particularly for this) group on Facebook.

Fortunately for us, the manufacturer is willing to hear about shooters' issues and is continuously searching for practical solutions to get rid of operational issues, improve the dependability of their guns, and make using them more comfortable.


The F12's large controls, which include a magnet squeeze button and a bolt handle, make it ideal for competition or home defense. Surprisingly, the manufacturer did a fantastic job with their packaging; the F12 comes with a lot of extras that actually increase the shotgun's worth.
