100% designed and manufactured in the USA
Similar to our Tavor Curved Buttpad, the Tavor TS12 Shotgun Curved Buttpad features an aluminum skeleton structure with an overmolded rubber pad. The rubber pad is curved to conform to the shoulder and gives both better ergonomics and a better grip so the rifle does not slide around, and has an additional 1″ of “drop” at the toe over the OEM buttpad to give a much larger surface area and the ability to ride the shotgun higher on the shoulder for a more inline stance. A small tool or a bullet is used to depress the disassembly button for removal of the TS12 Curved Buttpad.
The Tavor TS12 Shotgun Curved Buttpad is made by Manticore Arms in the USA.

Without a doubt if you using a TS12 without wearing a body armor get this upgrade, it makes shooting more comfortable with it being curved and having larger surface area. Install was very simple, it’s literally sliding off the original stock and slide the new one on.
Once the other accessories for the TS12 come in stock I will be ordering those as well. I am looking for carrying handle with HIVIZ sights that can attach to the pic rail, it would great if Manticore Arms could design and make that too.

Manticore should amend the product description to include the fact that their buttpad lacks the disassembly button that the factory IWI buttpad has, and that it cannot be removed from the TS12 without the use of a tool. The “stem” of the charging handle is too large in cross-section to be used for this purpose. Disassembly must be accomplished with the use of a punch.
The other thing that the prospective buyer should be made aware of is that while the factory IWI buttpad’s rubber has a little “give” in it, the rubber that Manticore uses is hard, unyielding, and provides no shock absorption whatsoever. Manticore could have molded some holes in the rubber to provide some shock absorption, but they failed to do so. As is, Manticore might just as well have done away with the rubber and made it’s buttpad out of solid aluminum. It’s a buttpad in name only. It’s really a buttplate.

We will update the product description to indicate a small tool or bullet is used to remove the buttpad.
As for the rubber on our buttpad, it is actually a softer durometer than the IWI OEM buttpad, and the extra surface area of it and curve of it makes the felt recoil lower. That being said, at the end of the day it is a 12 gauge shotgun, and it is still going to have kick. Sven at Manticore Arms
Worth every penny. Easy swap out from the original pad, only downside is you need a tool to take it off but it comes off easy and makes shouldering the shotgun much more comfortable.

I just bought a TS-12 a couple weeks ago, and first time out my shoulder told me that I needed to do something about the recoil. Found out about the Manticore products for this gun and got all three – muzzle brake, butt pad, and charging handle. Could not believe how much better my shoulder feels after running full load Brenneke slugs and Winchester 00buck. Made the recoil on this gun feel like my .38/.357 Henry. Good job Sven, and thanks a bunch. If you ever get down around N.E. MS look me up. I have a pretty decent backyard shootin’ spot. 🙂

Great but pad. More surface area than OEm plus the curved shape really helps with controlling the TS12
CHRISTOPHER FABRICIUS (verified owner) –
This TS12 product a masterpiece of quality in both materials and design, form and function.
Just as importantly, it is a reflection of the care, skill, and honor of its designer Sven Jonsson and all the good people at MANTICORE ARMS.
You will not find better products or people.

Extremely well made…perfect fit! Really helps seat the gun to the shoulder. Plus…more surface area equals less force per square inch in recoil. A very nice feature when wasting lots of ammo.

This buttpad assembly is what the gun should have come with! It is beautifully made and disperses the recoil by having proper curve and more surface area. The one I bought (unlike for a previous poster) has a softer material for the pad, than my original pad does. I’m very happy with it!
I purchased the TS 12 after Oregon launched their asinine measure 114 bill.
I figured if they were going to make me go down in magazine size, I’d just adjust to a larger caliber. I couldn’t be more pleased with my decision. I additionally purchased the three accessories you offer and I must say, they make all the difference!
If you carry a cleaning kit with your tac bag then you don’t need any other tool to break down the buttstock. For tactical field operations this weapon is a must. Definitely going to be in my bug out bag. Thank you for giving us weapons that are both field functional, and tactically proficient.

The pad has been extremely comfortable to use and the materials and finish of the part as a whole has been top notch! Having the pad has allowed me to go longer during shooting sessions and enjoying the TS12. I don’t have a lot of meat on my frame, so every bit helps, and this pad has made a HUGE difference.Thanks Sven!
