The NeoStead 2000 also known as NS2000 is a South African, 12 gauge, combat shotgun designed by Truvelo Armory featuring a peculiar pump action with two magazine tubes. It is used by the Alliance of Nations. The NS2000 is a 12-gauge pump-action shotgun weighing just over 3 kg, designed primarily for security and civil disturbance situations. The firearm includes a 570-milimetre barrel despite the overall weapon length of just 690 millimetres (27 in). The short length makes the weapon easier to handle in close-quarters situations; however, unlike most firearms of this type, it can still remain accurate at relatively long ranges. The long barrel length is achieved by using a bullpup configuration, with a rear-fed tubular magazine.
