IWI Accepts the TTAG Reader’s Choice Award for Best Rifle of 2013


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.

    Well done TTAG

  2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    I still think it’s pretty neat you guys present these awards.

    By the way. Holy crap Nick, just how tall are you?
    Go find the Al Mar booth and get a pic with Gary.

  3. avatar Don says:

    Hows about making those discrete TTAG shirts that Nick is wearing available in the pro shop???

    1. avatar Diesel Dan says:

      I second the motion.

  4. avatar g says:

    Nice hardware, and congrats IWI! Did they have v any new stuff at their booth? Galil ACE?

  5. avatar Jeff in Tacoma says:

    Damn right! Best, most innovative rifle in many years. I love mine, eats the worst ammo and asks for seconds.

  6. avatar John Sager says:

    Nick, does this mean they hate you less now?

  7. avatar Mack says:

    Well this isn’t surprising. A heavily jewish tainted blog that radiates biased towards anything and anyone jewish awards the best rifle to the newest jewish firearm. Überraschung.

    1. avatar Hudson says:

      Agreed, this place stinks of judaism, faggotry, and everything that is “diversification”.

      1. avatar Kris says:

        Yes, this has absolutely nothing to do with the Tavor being extremely innovative and popular and everything to do with the fact that all of the readers of one of the most popular gun blogs on the net are all just a bunch of zionist apologists.

        Troll much?

        Mack, Hudson, you’re trailer parks called. They miss their idiots. Quit living in your pinto and move back.

        1. avatar Michael B. says:

          Hudson’s post sounds like sarcasm. Mack’s unfortunately sounds legit.

      3. avatar Mack Bolan says:

        Aww you guys are cute. Now put the keyboards away. You don’t want to be late for date night with your cousin.

    2. avatar Jeff the Griz says:

      You can say whatever crap you want but these were chosen by readers not the staff, everyone had a chance to vote. It was posted a few times.

      1. avatar Oddux says:

        Jeff the Griz is 100% correct. Mack and Hudson, you had a chance to vote for something from somewhere else if your anti-semitism demands that you hate an exceptionally well designed defensive tool based on its country of origin.

        Meanwhile the majority of us recognized the Tavor for what it was and voted it the best new rifle of 2013 for a reason. It was the readers who made that decision, not some vast Jewish conspiracy.

        1. avatar Joel says:

          Love me some anti-semites. They make great targets. Well, gotta go, bar mitzvah this weekend. Shalom y’all.

        2. avatar Jeremy S says:

          All the hate and anti-semitism is part of the reason such a good firearm was designed in Israel. I’d like to extend a big “thank you!” to Mack and Hudson, for without people like them we wouldn’t be able to enjoy an amazing rifle like the Tavor.

    3. avatar Andrew says:

      Terrible, Terrible Troll-Fu! You must work on your chi, young grasshopper.

      You also failed to mention the following:

      New World Order
      Jewish Government oversight of the monetary system
      Secret Sumerian Texts
      And finally the ancient Italian document entitled “GoFuckaYousselvs”

    4. avatar LongBeach says:

      If’n yew got hate in yer heart, let it out.

  8. avatar ensitue says:

    Somehow My Little Pony Was deleted from the Run Offs

    Your Lose America!

  9. Totally agree with this one!

    And the fact that the Geissele drop-in trigger replacement is coming in Mark will make it even more awesome.

      Damn autocorrect.
