Back on topic:

I emailed Copes to see if they have any updates on ship dates/quantities and they sort of backed off the end of March time frame saying:
Jeff, I’m sorry but no updated info and no way to know when anyone will ship for sure. We do not know how many firearms or of which kind IWI will ship us with each shipment so it is a wait and see game for everyone, sorry.

EDIT: I have only 250 5.56/.223 rounds left, and I refuse to shoot any of them. They are all going to be fed to the Tavor!

Was worried that I wouldn't have anything to feed her when she arrived. Finally found some 5.56 ammo.

Now if IWI USA would just ship the rifles...

I preordered mine back in mid-December and I don't think that mine will be shipped on the first go-around. I think if you haven't preordered one, you're going to be waiting until much later in the year...

I just watched part III.

I'm surprised the weight is a little heavier than I thought it would be. I thought it would be lighter than a light-weight AR.

I really want to put a regular PWS comp on there and gauge the muzzle movement vs a tuned AR. The reciprocating parts; the difference in weight vs the AR BCG; I wonder what difference it will make.

Shouldn't be long now!

IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI), has commenced shipments of the long-awaited TAVOR® SAR bullpup rifles to their distributors. Shipments have been carefully choreographed for product arrival to various distributors across the country at relatively the same time. IWI US continues to ramp up production and shipping in the coming weeks. An assortment of black and FDE TAVOR® SAR rifles in 16.5″ barrels and several black, left-hand rifles along with a small quantity of the TAVOR® SAR IDF model are among the initial product shipments.

I got screwed on these. Originally our major supplier wasn't going to carry these. My sales rep didn't bother telling me about them when they did pick them up so all my orders are at the end of the list. ARRGGGG

My local gun shop just got a Steyr AUG A3, how does it compare to the Tavor?

I haven't been able to get to the range with the Tavor until because I've been very sick with ulcerative colitis and the poor rifle has been sitting here begging me to take it out for a play-date. I finally got out and put a few rounds downrange today.

Unfriggenbelievable. This rifle has the potential to be about as ergonomic a gun as I have had the pleasure of shooting. It's not exactly a PS90 when it comes to recoil... but it's not too far behind. Fast, easy follow up shots. I didn't shoot enough to really play with mag changes, but with just a little practice, I would bet the average Joe could swap out a mag in about 1 second and be back in the fight. It's fast.

I sent mostly XM193 downrange, but I also shot a little Black Hills 55gr BTHP. I don't think this rifle is exactly going to be a tack-driver, but it's not too bad. Because it's a 1:7 twist, it will likely prefer heavier rounds. I found some 69gr Federal match ammo which I will try next week and compare all the results.

The only complaint I have is the trigger, but it's not the typical bullpup issue. It's not mushy at all & is actually fairly crisp, plus it doesn't have a lot of play at all. It's really heavy though - my trigger pull gauge's scale stops at 8lb - it went way beyond that point and I would have to estimate it was more like 11-12 lbs!

My plan is to put together the video review next week, health situation allowing. Gonna do the accuracy testing, show some of the ergonomics plus this rifle is allegedly Over The Beach capable: aka able to fire after being submerged in water and not completely dried... yes I will be testing that.

So if you never hear from me again, you can guess what went wrong. :laugh:

Yea, but when you do get them in... one is hopefully going to come my way :)
