POTD: Shotgun Diplomacy with the Tavor TS12

    Have you ever shot the Tavor TS12? It’s a beast and for sure a different looking shotgun. I first encountered it at the SHOT Show Range Days, as it was released to the public.

    It’s made by IWI and feeds from one of three individual magazines which can hold up to five shotgun shells each, for a maximum capacity of 15+1 rounds. It also automatically loads a round in the chamber once you rotate the next magazine into its position.

    From IWI USA’s Product Description:

    The Tavor TS12 12 gauge shotgun is a gas regulated bullpup shotgun with an innovative design that feeds from one of three (3) individual magazines which can hold four 3 inch shotgun shells or five 2 ¾ inch shotgun shells each. This means that the potential overall capacity from all three (3) individual magazines is 15 rounds plus one additional round in the chamber. The TS12 has a unique feature that automatically loads a round in the chamber once the subsequent loaded magazine is rotated into position. It can be fed and unloaded from either side.

    Additional features of the TS12 include four (4) sling attachment points, M-LOK compatible rails, a continuous Picatinny rail on top, Benelli/Beretta choke tube compatibility, and the reliability expected of all IWI products. Although the TS12 has an 18.5 inch barrel, the overall length is still only 28.34 inches.

    The TS12 offers an innovative an versatile and compact sporting or home defense shotgun that is optimized for whatever application you need.

    The MSRP is $1,399.
