Editor’s Note:

The Tavor TS12 bent the rules and brought us a gas-operated semi-automatic bullpup shotgun with a set of 3 rotating magazine tubes. Each magazine tube can hold up to five 2 3/4-inch shells, giving the gun a maximum capacity of 15+1. Once the magazine tube is depleted, the tubes can be rotated and will automatically load a new round. An 18.5-inch barrel combined with the bullpup configuration keeps the length compact at just 28.34 inches overall. Quick-detach sling points, M-Lok rails, full-length top Picatinny rails, and interchangeable chokes allow for plenty of accessory mounting capabilities and flexibility.

By The Numbers - Tavor TS12

It’s a shotgun, and it’s pretty hard to be inaccurate out to 25 yards with any long gun. The TS12 is plenty accurate when topped with a red dot.
Reliability was hit or miss. While the right buckshot load minimized failures, it never ran 100%. With a 5% failure rate with buckshot, I’m torn between a 2.5 and a 3, but if a ZIP gun from USFA is a 1, then this is at least a 3.
Uhm, you can toss in different choke tubes and attach M-LOK rails and optics. That’s all, folks.
IWI took a long time to painstakingly plan out the TS12, and its controls. From the placement of the magazine tube release to the grippy textured tubes turned forend. The TS12 is an excellent weapon control-wise.

Benelli M4

Benelli M4


Johnny B says “Benelli’s M4 is what we would call a good Italian auto shotgun. It’s the best combat shotgun on the market and would do phenomenal in a home defense setup or tactical arena. This autoloader looks great, runs smooth, brings that cool factor we all like from our guns. Most importantly, you can trust your life to it.” This 12-gauge shotgun is a fast-shooting, smooth semi-auto model. Featuring an 18.5-inch barrel, it measures 40 inches in total length with a weight of 7.8 pounds. It offers up a 14.75-inch length-of-pull. Drilled and tapped, you can throw an optic on it and rock and roll.

final verdict

“The IWI TS12 is a massively fun gun to shoot. It’s Sci-Fi design makes it a real attention-getter and the 15-round capacity is great. The reliability problems stop it from being an absolute knockout but if fixed, the gun will be unmatched in the combat shotgun field.” – Travis Pike
