SHOT Show 2018: IWI Tavor TS12 Shotgun

posted on January 24, 2018
One of the most innovative launches seen at SHOT Show 2018 is that of the IWI Tavor TS12, the company's first-ever shotgun. This unique firearm features a compact bullpup design as well as a semi-automatic operating system designed for reliability, capacity and ambidextrous use.

One of the stand-out features on the TS12 is the unique rotary magazine. This system provides a combination of three magazine tubes, each tube holding up to five 2.75-inch shotshells. Once a tube empties, the bolt locks back and a release lever located on the inside of the trigger guard allows the operator to rotate a loaded magazine tube into place. Once locked into position, the next round in the tube automatically loads into the chamber.

For more information on the new Tavor TS12 shotgun from IWI, see the video above.
