Originally developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Force (IDF), the IWI TAVOR was created to excel in close-quarters engagements—and now a civilian version is available. The bullpup design moves the rifle's center of gravity closer to its handler's body, allowing for instinctive aiming and improved acquisition time to target. Better yet, its full-length barrel means no loss of down range accuracy.
With the exception of a hand-specific locking bolt, the rifle is completely ambidextrous—you can easily convert the operating handle, ejection port, fire-control safety, sling swivel receptacles and fore-mounted accessory Picatinny rail to suit a left-handed shooter.
You can get a closer look at the TAVOR below, in a video hosted by American Rifleman Senior Executive Editor Brian Sheetz.
