Design DetailsEdit

The Tavor TS12 is a 12 gauge bullpup shotgun with the capability of being configured for left- or right-handed ejection and operation. It is gas-operated with a two-position gas regulator and a short stroke gas piston. It also features a cross bolt safety.

It feeds from one of three rotating magazine tubes that can hold either four 3 inch shells or five 2¾ inch shells. The TS12 also boasts the proprietary "Bullhead" bolt locking system, which automatically loads a round into the chamber once the next loaded magazine tube is rotated into position.

The weapon has four sling attachment points, a continuous Picatinny rail on top along with M-LOK compatible rails, and compatibility with Beretta and Benelli choke tubes.
