After quite a bit of speculation, the rumors are indeed comfirmed. The Tavor will be coming to the US very soon, possibly as early as 1st Quarter of 2013.
For those of you who somehow may not know, the IWI Tavor bullpup rifle is the state of the art weapons system of the Israeli Defense Force.
It features ambidextrous controls and ejection that can be changed out to fit the particular user, it utilizes AR15 style STANAG magazines, and gives the end user a lightweight,reliable, weapon system.
The main bugaboo that I have is the price tag. Possible MSRP of $1900 is WAY out of my ballpark. But if it lives up to it's reputation, then for the folks out there with deep pockets it may be worth every penny.
Sturmgewehre from Military Arms Channel apparently bribed someone or something and managed to get a sneak peek at this awesome little package.
