Our Photo Of The Day is strong today. Like 12 gauge strong, and with a great image. Never has a firearm looked so similar to the Heckler & Koch G11 as this suppressed Tavor TS12 shotgun, or did I get that wrong? The market for shotgun suppressors isn’t huge, in fact, it’s quite limited. The one pictured is the SilencerCo Salvo 12, which can be customized to keep a balance between sound, weight, and length by adding or removing sections. The build material is aluminum and stainless steel.

The Tavor TS12 is a 12 gauge gas-regulated bullpup shotgun, that feeds ammunition from one of three individual magazines that each can hold four 3″ or five 2 ¾” shotgun shells. It can be fed and unloaded from either side.
There’s actually a similar suppressor available on a completely different market (Europe), check it out here: Hunting with Benelli M4 and A-Tec A12 Suppressor.

    Am I the only one that htinks the Tavor 12Ga looks like that experimental smart grenade launcher the US military fielded for a while?

      @David Knuth Adding to this, I think a fella could have a lot of fun with one of those and a case of Bird Bomb shells. :D
