Editors’ Picks 2018: IWI US Tavor TS12 Shotgun

posted on April 20, 2018

IWI US has expanded its Tavor family of bullpups with the addition of a shotgun. The TS12 is a 28.34"-long, gas-operated semi-automatic that feeds from one of three magazine tubes—each of which holds four 3" or five 2¾" shells, for a total on-board capacity of 12 to 15. The tubes’ triangular arrangement allows each of the two not aligned with the barrel to be loaded or unloaded from its respective side of the gun. After the center magazine is emptied, the next tube is manually rotated into position and the gun automatically feeds the first shell into the chamber. The ejection port, too, can be easily changed to either side to accommodate right- or left-hand users. Other features include: four sling cups, M-LOK-compatible rails, an expansive topside Picatinny rail to accommodate optics and Benelli/Beretta-compatible choke tube threading on the 18.5" barrel. iwius.com
