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.
