The UTS-15 is a 12 gauge pump-action shotgun designed by UTAS Makine of Turkey as a result of a request made by Smith & Wesson in 2006. Constructed primarily of fiber reinforced injection molded polymer, the UTS-15 weighs 6.9 lbs. Additionally, there is a top mounted Picatinny rail for the mounting of a wide variety of both iron and optical sights, coupled with Beretta style barrel threading for choke tubes.
The UTS-15 feeds from two magazine tubes above the barrel, each capable of holding seven 2.75″ shotshells. With an additional shell in chamber, the weapon can carry 15 shells fully loaded. A selector switch allows the gun to chamber rounds from either barrel, or alternate between the two.
The UTS-15 is the seventh all-class shotgun unlocked, after the SPAS-12 and before the DBV-12, requiring 48,000 Shotgun score. It is a high capacity, pump-action shotgun that is offset by a slower reload and a lower pellet count of ten. Shells are loaded in an alternating fashion, much slower overall than bottom-loading shotguns such as the 870 MCS or M1014.
- When loading the first shell in the chamber during an empty reload, the shell is inserted in the wrong way, with the brass head facing the front direction rather than rear as it is supposed to.
- If any laser, flashlight, or the Laser/Light Combo is equipped, the beams will come from an integrated laser/light module under the barrel, rather than mounting an attachment.
- When equipped with a Green Laser sight, the laser aperture will remain red while the laser itself will be green.
