IWI’s Tavor SAR rifle won our Reader’s Choice award for Best Rifle of 2013, and they’ll be receiving the award later today. But for now, enjoy this cutaway model that shows all of the operating parts.

    Do they make one long enough to buy in MD?

      In Canada we have the Tavor with an 18.5″ barrel. I’m not sure if you can get it there though.

    2. avatar Robert M says:

      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.


  3. Thanks for posting this, Nick. Really interesting.

    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.

      Lefty Tavor? Wat? I thought the point was that it was ambi

      1. avatar Greg Spencer says:

        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.

    That’s cool and all… but did they say when the MTAR is coming to the U.S.?

  8. avatar Mack Bolan says:

    Sure FateofDestinee has a whole video of the 9mm conversion and all TTAG get’s is a picture of the cutaway….

    Weak Sauce.
