Designed by former American Rifleman editor Ted Hatfield, the UTAS UTS-15’s single, 18.5-inch barrel surpasses the minimum requirement for legality, yet the entire shotgun measures a mere 28 inches overall. The 7-pound Turkish shotgun features an all-polymer receiver that’s reinforced at stress points with magnesium. Its grip, trigger and fire-control buttons are borrowed from an AR-15 and therefore familiar.

A Picatinny rail allows for easy optic mounting, although you won’t need an aftermarket flashlight or laser because both are integral. The gun’s genius lies in its system of horizontally mounted magazine tubes that rest atop the barrel. Each hold 7 rounds of 2½-, 2¾- or 3-inch shells and is numbered for fast visual metering. Loading is accomplished via two separate ports, like this. When the magazine selector lever is set in the middle, the gun feeds alternately from each magazine. However, one magazine can be blocked in order to feed from the other magazine before defaulting to the other.

You can learn more about the UTS-15 in the video below, hosted by American Hunter's Jeff Johnston.
