New Guns for 2013
The National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) holds a trade show each year in November. A variety of gun manufacturers provide a sneak peek into what guns might make their way onto the market in 2013. While having a gun on display at this show is not always a sure bet it will become available, it's always interesting to see what gunmakers have in mind.
IWI Tavor SAR Bullpup Rifle
Bullpup rifles offer accuracy in a compact, handy package. The new Tavor from IWI features a high-strength polymer body, a 100-percent ambidextrous control configuration and 16.5 or 18-inch cold-hammer forged, chrome-lined barrels with a 1:7-inch twist. Chambered in 5.56/.223, this rifle accepts standard AR-15/M16 magazines. Conversion kits to switch the Tavor to 9 mm or 5.45×39 mm are planned.
