Because IWI just announced a TAVOR bullpup shotgun.
The TAVOR TS12 is a 12-gauge, gas-regulated, smoothbore semiautomatic shotgun that has three magazine tubes which hold a total of 15+1 rounds.
According to IWI’s press release, the ambidextrous TAVOR TS12 can be fully configured for left- or right-handed shooters. It can be fed and unloaded, as well as configured for ejection from either side.
IWI CEO, Casey Flack, says, “The TAVOR TS12 is our first entry into the home defense shotgun market and we held off until we had something unique and desirable that held the same characteristic quality and performance of the entire TAVOR line. The TS12 is it; compact, easy to use and maintain, and with a large magazine capacity, it is ideal for home defense, as well as a sporting shotgun.”
Using an exclusive patented “Bullhead” locking system, the new TAVOR bullpup shotgun has an 18.5-inch barrel, with a 28.34-inch overall length. It has an M-LOK rail, pistol grip stock and fits Benelli/Beretta chokes.
