I like that, Phos!  I'd never been much impressed with the bullpup design. I suppose it may have been all the do-it-yourself bullpup "creations" I'd seen in the past years that turned me off towards them. But I like this one! I like IWI weapons anyway. UZI's always had my attention. This Tavor looks like it's well made and finish looks tight all around.

Does the butt stock adjust for length at all? It doesn't look like it would, but I've never held one, so I don't know.  dntknw1

Does it use a Tavor-only magazine or are they interchangeable with any other 7.62x51 magazine? How's magazine cost and availability?

Thanks for posting this up, Phos!  I've been eyeing another Model A UZI, so It'll be a while before getting "the next one" after the UZI. We'll see...



Laugh, the grand poobah of enablers and primary founder says I need a Mosin Nagant!!?!?  rofl2
I need a Mosin like I need a hole in the head!

A Henry Big Boy in .357 Magnum though... think1 lalala doh1

I want one in 45 Colt.

I want a Henry in .357 magnum, too. I bought my wife a S&W Model 656 .357 mag when we first got together. I need to get "her" a matching rifle, caliber-wise, right?  ;)  :)  thumb1  I just know that down deep, somewhere, she really wants a Henry!  chuckles1  :)   I know I do!   chuckles1

Thanks FC!

The stock length isnít adjustable. Iím 5í11Ē and I find it comfortable. As a bullpup, it definitely has a different feel to it.

The magazines are cheap, reliable and readily available Magpuls designed to fit the AR-10 family of rifles.

Thanks!

Good score, thatís a variety of 7.62 NATO that I donít have. I did find a couple of different lot numbers of M118 at an LGS last week, so I grabbed 8 boxes of each.

Not trying to change the subject here, (BUT), isn't the Ruger Ranch in 5.56x55 IDENTICAL (in bullet size/caliber/power/etc? BUT, the Ruger is legal while the AR15 is considered an "Assault Rile". I guess the law makers still think "AR15" means "(A)ssault (R)ifle? Aren't they familiar with "ArmaLite" brand? Or, are they still hooked on "it's a mean, scary looking gun. And should banned".

There is but one language in the USA, English.

The Ruger Ranch is a bolt action rifle available in 5.56x45mm but Iím guessing you meant the Ruger Mini 14 which is also chambered in 5.56 and is semiautomatic. The ďassault weaponsĒ bans now in effect in 10 of the 50 states all vary. Iím most familiar with Washington Stateís AWB, which is similar to Californiaís, but worse in many ways. There is a list of 62 specifically named firearms and then a long list of features. Some models of the Ruger Mini 14 and Mini 30 (7.62x39) would still be available for legal purchase under the current AWB language. No, it clearly is not logical  rofl

My purchase of the Tavor 7 occurred a couple of years before our AWB but I purchased many other SA rifles before April 25, 2023.

A federal AWB doesnít stand a chance right now with the divided control of our bicameral legislature. Iím encouraged by the latest ruling by Judge Benitez in District Court against the CA AWB as being unconstitutional. Iím expecting the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn that, and hopefully SCOTUS will take it up and side with Benitez in ruling it unconstitutional. That would be a landmark case and would overturn the WA AWB since it is even more restrictive.
