Like New Tavor 556 rifle with box, tools, etc as pictured.
The TAVOR is an Israeli bullpup assault rifle chambered for 5.5645mm NATO ammunition.
This one for sale is a like new Kalifornia Kompliant model with long muzzle brake to satisfy the 30 inch requirement in this state.
It's mag lock is the Radlock manufacture.
Built around a long-stroke piston system (as found in the M1 Garand and AK-47), the Tavor was designed to maximize reliability, durability, and ease of maintenance, particularly under adverse or battlefield conditions.
The objective of the project was to create an assault rifle that was more reliable, durable and easier to maintain than the M4A1 Carbine, while also being better suited to close-quarters combat and mechanized infantry roles. As a result, they hoped that the weapon would be officially adopted by the Israel Defense Forces.
Due to the military's close-quarters and mechanized infantry requirements, the project team selected a bullpup design, that would allow the weapon to be compact while keeping a long barrel able to achieve ballistically favorable high muzzle velocities.
Between 2001 and 2002, the Tavor was given extensive military trials for functionality and reliability against the M4A1 Carbine. It was trialled in tests including Mean Rounds Between Failures (MRBF); reliability; ergonomics during long marches; and ease-of-maintenance. In these military tests, it prevailed over the M4A1 Carbine.
As a result of these trials, the IDF adopted the Tavor as the future standard arm for all branches of the infantry, to gradually enter service, with the first weapons delivered to the infantry from 2006 onwards, and a full changeover expected by 2018.
The rifle uses a non-lubricated long-stroke piston system, as found in the M1 Garand, IMI Galil and the AK 47.
The long-stroke piston mechanism contributes to the forcefulness of the Tavor's extraction and chambering.
A long-stroke piston system may increase a weapon's reliability in extreme conditions (in comparison to the less reliable short-stroke piston systems), as has been found to be the case in both the M1 Garand and the AK 47.
The Tavor features a self-contained, drop-in trigger group, so that the trigger group can be changed or replaced without the use of additional tools.
There are three after market trigger pack makers as of last Shotshow ... necessary in my opinion but quit spendy though ...
The Tavor barrels are made from CrMoV steel and cold hammer-forged (CHF) on the premises of the IWI factory in Ramat HaSharon. The barrel is chrome-lined for durability and corrosion resistance. The barrel features 6 grooves in a 178 mm (1 in 7 inch) twist.
The IDF uses both 55-grain M193 and 62-grain M855 5.5645mm rounds. M193 rounds will be used by regular infantrymen for better terminal effects at shorter distances, while the heavier M855 will be used by sharpshooters.
The Tavor uses a bullpup configuration, in which the receiver, bolt carrier group and magazine are placed behind the pistol grip. This shortens the firearm's overall length without sacrificing barrel length. As a result, the TAR-21 provides carbine overall length, yet can achieve rifle muzzle velocities if equipped with a rifle-length barrel.
The rifle is waterproof and its internal mechanism is fully sealed from outside elements.
Terrific rifle, the next step in evolution in the Bullpup design and increased reliability from the M4 system.
