The SPAS-15 is a dual-mode 12 gauge shotgun manufactured by the Italian company Franchi S.p.A..

The weapon is based on the SPAS-12, and has similar pump-action/semi-automatic firing modes. Its design is very similar to the M16 rifle. In semi-automatic mode a gas piston drives a bolt carrier and rotating bolt. In pump-action mode the same components are driven by sliding the fore-end backwards. Pump-action mode is required to reliably fire low-pressure ammunition such as tear gas rounds or less-lethal bean bags. Switching between firing modes is done by pressing a button above the foregrip, and sliding the foregrip slightly forwards or backwards.

Unlike its predecessor, the SPAS-15 is fed by a detachable box magazine. The gun features a folding stock and a pistol grip safety.
