  • Any Tavor owners?

    I just ordered a 16.5 inch Tavor-21 in FDE through the IWI individual officer program. It should be in within the next week or so.

    Just curious if there are any tavor owners here and what they think/have done to it so far!

        I have had the opportunity to shoot it, however I do not own it. Its a very durable rifle, as in controls you could operate with gloves. Had only 1 FTE out of ~500 rds, which I think was just due to poor quality ammo.

        The gun's manipulation is spot on: (seemingly) super light weight, easy to manipulate & change between targets. I would highly recommend working reloads, as I found them fairly slow because I wasn't familiar with the weapons system. Also, depending on the optic (if red dot), I would mount it as far forward as you can manage; this gun capitalizes on short, quick, and large FOV - so keep it where it is strong.

        tl;dr - Tavor good. AR-15 good. Both have strengths and weaknesses.

          This will be my first owned bullpup so it will definitely take getting used to. I definitely plan on going with some sort or red dot, just need to figure out which one I like best.

          I also am thinking of a forward angle grip to try out and see if I like it, as well as an upgraded trigger.

            well, I can't help you with either choosing between a red dot (although, AimPoint is king, EOTech - Queen) or is a forward grip is comfortable on this particular gun, but I can say that I am quite fond of both my magpul and my FAB defence grips, both on AR-styled weapons. Great for CQB, but sucks when you have to push long range; a standard grip often has a quick-release bipod inside, this does not.

              It's not going to be a distance rifle at all. Maybe 100 yards tops. Ill have to see which forward grip I like better at my local gun store. They usually let you bring the gun in and slide the grips on and off to see what you like.

              Besides the EOTech 512, which is on our patrol rifles, I am quite ignorant when it comes to red dots so I will definitely be doing some research.

                They are nice, but the OEM triggers leave a lot to be desired.

                These are excellent: http://shop.shootingsight.com/Tavor-...ng-Tav-Alu.htm

                It's another $340, but drastically improves the gun.

                The rearward weight bias makes for a very maneuverable rifle and the ergos are solid. They do blow a lot of gas out around your face when run suppressed (I'm looking forward to seeing how well the new OSS suppressors tame this). But, with an upgraded trigger and a nice optic, they are a great option.

                  I have yet to shoot the Tavor, but I was my agency's lead instructor on the AUG bullpup.
                  Bullpups have lots of advantages in LE. I used them in small SUV's (I measure 6',190#), in choppers, and searching small homes (think single wide trailers). Our boat crews liked them as well. Just make sure you work on the manual of arms so it becomes automatic, although needing to reload is a rare event.
                  Enjoy!

                    From what I hear, that is one of the best triggers for the gun. I am definitely going to look into it.
