Reply WRH says: January 16, 2014 at 14:00 In Canada we have the Tavor with an 18.5″ barrel. I’m not sure if you can get it there though. Reply Robert M says: January 17, 2014 at 11:43 Not from the factory. It would require some kind of gun smith work to make it MD legal. The reason why is the longest version is still 1/2 inch to short. Thanks Robert Reply Paul T. McCain says: January 16, 2014 at 12:21 Thanks for posting this, Nick. Really interesting.

I want to go to SHOT sooooooo bad… Reply Greg Spencer says: January 16, 2014 at 13:48 Steve in MD, They currently do not make one that is MD legal. Which is why I bought two last year, one for me and a lefty for the wife. Prior to 1 Oct 13, I was able to buy them without the MD State Police check, since they were so new they weren’t on the regulated weapons list. So walk in, NCIS check, walk out, pew pew.

I thought the point was that it was ambi Reply Greg Spencer says: January 16, 2014 at 15:50 Lefty conversion puts in a different bolt that ejects brass to the left instead of the right, and moved the selector switch and charging handle to the other side. The Tavor can be fired with either hand, but it can be set up to be more comfortable for a lefty shooter. Apparently, that’s a big deal for lefties. Reply DMZ says: January 16, 2014 at 14:46 That’s cool and all… but did they say when the MTAR is coming to the U.S.? Reply Mack Bolan says: January 16, 2014 at 15:32 Sure FateofDestinee has a whole video of the 9mm conversion and all TTAG get’s is a picture of the cutaway…. Weak Sauce.
