Question??? I will start that I have yet to see one in person, but what makes this gun so much in demand?
Is it because it is new?
Cool looking bull pup?
Do you think company will stay in business?
I think yes, to all the above.
No experience with it, but the reports I've read have been positive.
The STG supposedly (you would know) had real issues with slinging brass in your face when shooting off the left shoulder- and the Tavor's effective buffer eliminates that problem.
IMO, if one wants a semi-auto 5.56 for self-defense, this is as close as you're gonna get to a SBR-length CQB weapon without the SOT. I see it more as a niche market for that application, as opposed to a range or "sporting rifle" platform.
