The R97 Shotgun is a 12-gauge, semi-automatic shotgun manufactured by Gemini. It can be fired in the widespread shotgun mode and focused single mode that trade damage with additional range. It has an effective range of 15 meters in shotgun mode and 35 meters in single mode.
The R97 combines sleek design and stopping power for an elegant and effective close quarters weapon. This ballistic shotgun from Gemini features two distinct fire modes — a semi-auto wide spread mode ideal for dealing quick damage and a focused mode that offers increased range at the expense of some power. This combat flexibility has made the R97 a popular personal defense weapon across the Empire.
