FAQs

WHAT LOWER RECEIVERS ARE COMPATIBLE WITH THE GEN-12 UPPER?

The upper is guaranteed to work with the Genesis Arms lower receiver which is patterned after the DPMS gen1 308AR lower receiver. We cannot guarantee fitment on other manufacturer's lower receivers.

Currently, SR-25 cut lowers are not compatible. AR10 lowers have no "standard" (not MILSPEC) unlike the AR15 lower. While many lowers will mate well to the GEN-12 upper receiver, the magwell may not accept the GEN-12 magazines. For questions about specific lowers, email support@genesisarms.com.

WHAT IS A "BEEF UP KIT"?

A full breakdown can be found in the blog, but essentially this is a kit to retrofit into your lower, which enhances specific components/ parts of your lower to stand up to the abuse that the 12 gauge shell. 

CHOKED BARRELS

At this time we do not offer a choke install service. The 18" barrels come with a external choke thread which is the same as the Saiga12 thread pitch. This allows the shooter to order external chokes kits for the Saiga/Vepr and install them on the GEN-12 as a solution to choking the barrel. 

 

The SBM line is not compatible with any choke (internal or external).

WHAT BARREL LENGTHS DO YOU OFFER? DO YOU OFFER RIFLED BARRELS?

Our standard shotgun comes in an 18" configuration.

Our SBM line comes in 10.5" and 7". 

 

All barrels are smooth bore.

WHAT AMMO DO YOU RECOMMMEND? 

Fiocchi ammo is the only brand of ammo we do not recommend. As long as it is 2 3/4" or 3" and 1145FPS or higher, you should be good to go with quality low and high brass ammunition. 

While all barrels are chambered in 2 3/4" and 3", shot shells have no "standard". If the 3" shells do not fit easily in the magazine, do not force them. We recommend 2 3/4" shells only. 

HOW DOES SHIPPING WORK?

For non-serialized items, we ship UPS directly to your shipping address. Upper shipments require a signature. Any serialize item will ship to your preferred FFL. Please provide the name and phone number of the FFL in the space provided during purchase. Or fill out the "contact" form on the website.
