Introduced by the Pennsylvania-based subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries, the Tavor TS12 is the business’s very first entry to the shotgun scene and Casey Flack, CEO of IWI US, states they wanted to introduce something unique to the market: a 15-shot self-loading scattergun that is just under 29-inches long overall.

“The TS12 is it; compact, easy to use and keep, and with a large magazine capability, it is perfect for home defense, in addition to a sporting shotgun,” Flack said.

The Tavor TS12 utilizes a trio of 5-shot (utilizing 2.75-inch shells) tubular publications that automatically loads the next round in the 3-inch chamber when the mag is rotated into place. When utilizing 3-inch shells, the capability comes by one shell in each mag. The 18.5-inch barrel is threaded for Benelli or Beretta chokes and one is consisted of. Weight empty is promoted as being 8 pounds. The shotgun consists of a one-piece Picatinny top rail and M-Lok slots on the forward handguard. The ambi design allows the user to switch out for left or best controls and ejection.

Did we mention that it is semi-auto? While there are a growing variety of bullpup 12’s out there, the choices slim down when it comes to production semi-auto offerings (just the rarely-encountered Uzkon UNG-12 and the currently off-limits Norinco LA K12 Puma come to mind) which might make the TS12 a really appealing if rather niche gun.

Significantly, due to the integrated handgun grip, the bullpup shotgun is rather high, at just over 10-inches from the bottom of said grip to the top of the rail, and adding optics would increase that metric.

Would you want to understand more? MSRP is $1,399 and the gun will be provided initially in black with olive and flat dark earth designs to follow.

Last November, in the announcement that IWI United States was moving to a bigger location to permit increased space for production and warehousing, Flack < a href ="http://www.guns.com/2017/11/29/iwi-moving-to-bigger-digs-announces-new-guns-for-u-s-market/" > stated it was for the brand-new 7.62 x51mm Tavor 7 AR and Masada handgun As an”exciting entry”at the time still under wraps. Looks like the covers are off.
