Where Can I Get … ? Railed Fore-ends For IWI Tavor Rifles

posted on December 11, 2015

Lightweight and requiring only seconds to install, Manticore Arms’ Fully Loaded ARClight XTL is a replacement fore-end for the IWI Tavor line of rifles that provides considerable utility not offered by the factory handguard. Extending further forward than the stock furniture, the Fully Loaded ARClight XTL can accommodate additional Picatinny rail sections and an internally mounted light with a remote switch.

Available in black, flat dark earth and olive drab green, the ARClight XTL is constructed from one piece of anodized aluminum and weighs just 10 ozs. The unit is compatible with both 16.5"- and 18"-barreled Tavors and features two integrally machined QD sling swivel pockets on each side. Installation requires only the removal of the stock handguard by loosening two Phillips head screws, sliding the ARClight XTL into place over the barrel and retightening the screws.

The Fully Loaded version of the fore-end comes with Manticore Arms’ Light Ring—for mounting a 1"-diameter weapon light just below the barrel—one five-slot segment of ARC LOK rail and one 11-slot ARC LOK rail section. A Naked version of the ARClight XTL, without the extra rails or Light Ring, is also available. Price: $235 (Fully Loaded), $175 (Naked).
