TEN-X TACTICAL -- TX-12™
TX-12™ Special Task Weapon
The TX-12™ Special Task Weapon™ (STW) is the latest product release for law enforcement and military
applications from Ten-X Tactical™. The TX-12™ STW is the industry’s first and only underslung, double
action, ambidextrous, 12ga firearm that maintains Primary Weapon Readiness (PWR). Weighing less than
1 kilo (2.2 lbs), it is the lightest 12ga firearm ever created for mounting under a primary rifle.
With military demands for significant weight reductions and increased operator safety, and tactical law
enforcement’s need for flexibility in dynamic environments, the TX-12™ STW was envisioned and
created. The TX-12™ STW accepts up to 3 inch 12ga lethal rounds, and can also fire all forms of less
lethal 12ga rounds, such as beanbags, flash bangs, chemical, flares, and line launching devices.
Operators get more than just 12ga door breaching, lethal force, and less lethal capabilities; they’ll also
have increased safety by ensuring that PWR is maintained while using the TX-12™ STW. Operators will
never have to transition away from their primary weapon.
Reduced operator fatigue results from the weight reduction, allowing the operator to use their weak hand
to operate the TX-12™ STW and increasing operator safety by maintaining PWR. Reduced training costs
result from similarities to using existing weapons, common use of primary weapon sights, and the
simplicity of the quick release mounts. The low profile design also preserves the popular CQB tactical hold
ahead of the magazine well, if desired.
The single shot loading system gives the operator the flexibility to quickly react in a dynamic
environment. Whether the situation calls for a door breeching round, a flash bang, or a less lethal round,
the operator has the control to make the decision and load the appropriate round for that threat. No need
to empty a tube or change magazines. Simply open the breech and load the suitable round.
Some of the unique TX-12™ STW features include: the Fire Control Module (FCM) that holds the trigger
group assembly and enables easy field servicing by removing a single captive takedown pin;
ambidextrous loading, double action (DA) trigger, and a simple T-lock to open the breech; no dismounting
required to field service the primary weapon; and, replaceable mil-spec barrel standoff device (BSD) for
effective door breeching.
The TX-12™ STW mounts to MIL-STD-1913 rails, or in place of the lower hand guard with the optional
barrel nut mount (M203 style). Both mounting configurations have custom built hardware for solid
mounting and easy dismounting. The 10.5 inch barrel is standard configuration for the M4/M4A1 type
platform with a 14.5 inch barrel. An extended length BSD is available for 16 inch M4 barrels.
When configured with its 7.5 inch barrel, the TX-12™ STW becomes the perfect complement to a 10 inch
short-barreled or bull pup style platform for CQB situations. The TX-12™ STW can also be customized to
meet specific requirements by contacting Ten-X Tactical.
|The TX-12™ STW is primarily intended for Law Enforcement and
Military use. It is classified under the National Firearms Act (NFA).
