As I said in my review, the Tavor SAR is the perfect rifle for the job it was designed to do. If you want a home defense gun or a rifle for CQB scenarios, there is no finer option. Apparently our readers agreed, and bestowed the first Best Rifle of the Year award on the TAVOR SAR. Accepting for IWI were Michael Kassnar, IWI VP of sales and marketing (above left) and IWI’s head man Shlomi Sabag (above center). I had the pleasure of handing the hardware to them this afternoon and Michael immediately hung it on the wall of the booth. And I dare say it looks smashing.
