"This was a great day for our company," said Michael Kassnar, vice president of sales and marketing for IWI US. "Over the past several years we've worked very hard to bring the Tavor to the U.S. market and we have been humbled by the overwhelming response we've received. With the Tavor taking its rightful place in history at the phenomenal NRA National Firearms Museum, it only confirms the fact that we are doing something right by the American consumer."
