IWI has been working with the BATFE for a couple of years to produce a gun for the American civilian market. The Tavor fire control, bolt and chasis had to be designed/modified in such a way that the parts could never be interchangeable with the IDF version of the rifle.
They completed the mission and now the Tavor is available to us! Yeah!
The numbers aren't that big to start with but hopefully that will change.
My next rifle is a Tavor!
OAL: 26 1/8" for 16 1/2" barrel.
