The Tavor is a perfect fusion of an ordnance-grade steel receiver coupled to a Mil-Spec cold hammer-forged barrel and encased into a high-impact strength polymer uni-body with exceptional situational ergonomics. The ultra-compact form factor allows for easy transitions in close quarter situations or even in your favorite deer blind. The bullpup design moves the center of gravity of the rifle closer to the users' body, allowing for more instinctive aiming and improved acquisition time to target. This innovative design also allows for a full-length barrel, which means no loss of down range ballistic accuracy. Near and far range accuracy is enhanced by the minimized recoil provided by a non-lubricated long stroke gas piston system. With the exception of a hand-specific locking bolt, the rifle is completely ambidextrous, allowing for easy left-hand conversion of the operating handle, ejection port, fire-control safety, sling swivel receptacles, and fore-mounted accessory Picatinny rail. The TAVOR is supplied with IDF-tested and approved magazines, but you can also use your own AR-15 style magazines.
