More on the Tavor TS12 bullpup semi-auto shotgun (VIDEO) HOLD

Among a host of new offerings on hand at SHOT Show 2018 from IWI US was their recently announced debut shotgun, which made a splash on Industry Day.

The new semi-auto Tavor TS12, in a nutshell, is a 15-shot self-loading shotgun that is just under 29-inches long overall.

The onboard shells are arranged in a three-pack of 5-shot (using 2.75-inch shells) tubular magazines that automatically loads the next round in the 3-inch chamber when the mag is rotated into place, which sometimes took a learning curve to master on the range Monday.

When using 3-inch shells, the capacity drops by one shell in each mag.


The 18.5-inch barrel is threaded for Benelli or Beretta chokes and one is included. Weight empty is advertised as being 8 pounds.


The TS12 includes a one-piece Picatinny top rail and M-Lok slots on the forward handguard, and the gun has a pronounced height when compared to 12 gauges with a more traditional layout. While a very 21st-Century design, the Tavor shotgun does visually harken back to the old Disco-era days of the High Standard HS10.

The ambi design allows the user to quickly swap out for left or right controls and ejection, much like its Tavor rifle cousins.

It has an MSRP of $1,399.
