The NS2000 is a shotgun manufactured and developed for the South African company NeoStead by Tony Neophytou.

It is consistently mentioned as one of the most technologically advanced Shotguns created along with the Pancor Jackhammer. For a few years, the NS2000 has been used in trial use by special forces including the British SAS. NeoStead seeks that larger weapons manufacturers will license the production rights of the NS2000. The first NS2000 guns have been available from October 2001 therefore, production of the NEOSTEAD Shotgun has been well underway.

The NS2000 is a pump action, 12 gauge shotgun weighing a little over 3 kg designed primarily for civil disturbance and security situations.

A possible production variant of the NS2000 has an 18 inch barrel in a weapon with an overall length of 22 inches. The shorter length reduced the magazine capacity to 5+5 rounds and makes the weapon easier to import or license in many countries.

Its pump mechanism operates in a forward-back motion, due to its rear-load configuration. This is different from conventional pump methods as the pump action is achieved by shifting the hand forward-back, as opposed to the standard back-forward motion of the non-trigger hand.

The NS2000 has been available for civilian purchase since 2003, with the majority of sales being in Europe (mostly in Italy), where it is cheaper than locally manufactured brand name shotguns. The NS200 is an "unrestricted" class shotgun in Canada (6/2005) but the BATF in the USA does not yet allow import (6/2006).
