New US made Tavor: First Shots

The new US made IWI Tavor is here. This is one of the first production guns out on the market. Previously we've seen video of Israeli made guns, but this is the new US made gun which will be available in a couple of weeks.

It's an impressive rifle. If you don't like bullpups, this one might sway you towards liking them. If you do like bullpups, this may become your favorite.

Excellent job.

Left handed shouldering drills looked good, interesting that the ejection pattern has been optimized for ambi operation without flipping the bolt.

Well done,

Glad you guys can have these finally. We've had the Israeli ones in Canada for a while now and they're a fan favorite.

I like! But a 9lb trigger?

Very nice. Could be a possibility for the future, if we have one. Once I move, I would like to have another bullpup. This one fits the bill nicely.

I am the weapon; my gun is a tool. It's regrettable that with some people those descriptors are reversed.

How's the trigger pull feel? That's my only hesitation with bullpups.
