Bullpup rifles deliver high-quality accuracy in a more compact package—and at 2013's Media Day at the Range IWI showed off a bullpup that's easily one of the most high-profile firearms at SHOT Show in its Tavor. The Tavor was originally developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Force (IDF), and is in service with the IDF as well as in the force of other countries around the world. It will be making its first appearance in American markets in late February or early March 2013.

The gun is 100 percent ambidextrous, and is chambered in 5.56/.223. Conversion kits to switch it to 9 mm or 5.45x39 are expected. You can get a closer look at it in the video below with American Rifleman's Brian Sheetz.


• 30 round capacity
• Detachable barrel
• 100 percent ambidextrous
• Folding back-up sights
• 100 percent interchangeability with parts of the Tavor family

Sniping In Korea: 1950-1953

When U.S. forces rushed to stop the North Koreans from overrunning South Korea in 1950, there were almost no American snipers. As the battle lines stabilized, that would change, and the war would become ideal for the employment of well-equipped and well-trained snipers.
