    On SWAT training days, you see some strange weaponry brought out to the range. This is an UTAS UTS-15 military and police combat shotgun. It has a 15 round capacity of 2 3/4″ 12 gauge shotgun shells, feeding from two 7 round tubular magazines above the 20.5″ barrel. Overall length of the gun is 28.3″ and its weight is a light 6.9 pounds.

    UTAS (pronounced YOO-tash) is a Turkish firearms company that prides itself on innovative design. That is apparent in the UTS-15′s build. UTS-15 is a pump-action, bullpup shotgun. The receiver is 100% fiber reinforced injection molded polymer. In fact, 80% of the gun is polymer. Between photos one and two below, you can see only moderate muzzle climb during a shot, despite the shotgun’s light weight.

    The gun functioned well and the guys liked the set-up. It will invariably be compared to Kel-Tec's KSG.

    IIRC, it was developed before the Kel-Tec, so there might be some argument as to who took the Neostad design and went further first

    I'd like the chance to try it out, looks interesting. The flip covers on the mag tubes might make speedy loading a problem, but for inside the home, (where you usually have only what's in the gun anyway), this could be an outstanding, highly maneuverable choice. This could also be a good a cruiser long gun, grab and go.

    With 15 rounds on tap, are you really about speed loading? If so, a carbine is your answer.....just sayin' ;)
