If there is one product that can be considered a police firearm of excellence, it is the 12 GA calibre shotgun. For many years, police officers around the word have confirmed this fact using the 12 calibre in their duties. Its firing power and intimidation very often manage to dissuade the aggressor by simply actioning its repeating system. This simplicity in handling and flexibility in use were taken to the extreme with the launch of the ST 12 shotgun, a firearm that combines all the best attributes to make it a classic within police-use shotguns. The ST 12 uses a Pump Action system, with a capacity of up to seven 12 GA calibre shells, 18 or 20 inches barrels with a 3 inches chamber. The ST 12 shotgun can be used with a wide range of ammunition, such as conventional shells loaded with buck shot, special ammunition for breaking down doors, less lethal ammunition and many others. Flexibility, high performance and facilitated handling are some of the attributes of this new product that has contributed to the optimization of the Taurus police product line.
