It's been awhile since I heard anything about the Tavor. Thought Barrett was thinking about manufacturing one here. Anyone have any more information on it?

I havn't heard anything since the SHOT show. Barrett says it should be out sometime this summer. The sec it comes out I want one! Anyone up for a group purchase?

Here is the Israeli army Tavor: [img]http://www.isayeret.com/weapons/assault/tavor/tarbig.gif[/img] Here is the turd-like bastardization that Barrett is releasing under the misnomer "civilian Tavor": [img]http://www.isayeret.com/weapons/assault/tavor/tavor-civi.gif[/img] They look so alike, I can hardly tell the difference. Barrett is scheduled to release this fine piece of craftmanship and ergonomic marvel later this year. [(:|)]

They do appear to be completely different rifles. Someone please tell me when Barrett really releases the Tavor or drops the price 500$ for whatever that other thing is.

PoliticalScience, yeah it ain't quite the same. But still beats the hell out of a Bushmaster M17.

What's wrong with the M17? Everyone I talked to likes theirs with the exception of the trigger-pull, which is inescapable in a bullpup, and will likley be present in the Tavor as well. [(:|)]

UGLY. Fails often. Charging handle REALLY SUCKS/ Irons suck. [img]http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/m17s/30-900-sa.jpg[/img] Probably the WORST bullpup I ever shot.

What the HELL?!?!?! How can Barrett even have the gall to call that hideous thing a Tavor? Who are they kidding?

Well, to be fair, it does fairly closely resemble the supressed version build for their spec ops: [img]http://www.isayeret.com/weapons/assault/tavor/new-mtar.jpg[/img] But, if they were going to build something that obviously was not going to be supressed, why not make it look like the standard version? Maybe someone will make a barrel shroud for a closer match... Rocko

I keep a few informal lists regarding firearms - gonna get, would like to get, like it but can't afford to get and don't want. The Tavor(?) has made it to my don't want to get list.

I like it, not as well as the original, and probably not enough to spend $1600 on it, but I would say that it is the coolest looking and (probably) best functioning bullpup that will be available to us peons for a while.

Call me crazy, but I like the look of the bastardized civie version better. Doesn't look as 'toy-like' to me. But that's just my 2 Israeli pesos (or whatever they use[:)]). In the end, the price tag will be high ($2000+ I think I heard), so I won't be too interested. Not to interested in Bullpups, but at that price, I'd find a nice used USR or drop the big bucks for an AUG with a lefty kit of course...
