Our Assessment: It takes a lot for the folks at our office to go “oooh,” but the IWI Tavor TS12 did it. This shotgun has the usual smoothbore barrel and handy pistol grip, but the detachable TUBE magazine made us do a double-take. With its compact size, integrated picatinny rails, and relatively lightweight (for a shotgun that offers 16 ready rounds), this shotgun could be great for home defense or it’d make one heck of a range gun. Tactical advantage against those things that go bump in the night, or maybe a leg up on your competitors at the 3-gun matches, this rollery delayed shotgun is one to have in your arsenal!
