The R97 Shotgun, produced by Gemini, is a semi-automatic 12-gauge shotgun that boasts a combination of sophisticated design and formidable stopping power, rendering it an effective close quarters weapon. The shotgun mode of the R97 has an effective range of 15 meters, while the single mode extends to 35 meters. The R97 is equipped with two fore modes, namely the semi-auto wide spread mode, which is ideal for inflicting swift damage, and the focused mode, which offers increased range at the cost of some power. This combat versatility has made the R97 a favored personal defense weapon throughout the Empire.[1]
