The TAVOR® is a perfect fusion of an ordnance grade steel receiver coupled to a Mil-Spec cold hammer forged barrel and encased into a high-impact strength polymer uni-body with exceptional situational ergonomics. The ultra-compact form factor allows for easy transitions in close quarter situations…or even in your favorite deer blind. The bullpup design moves the center of gravity of the rifle closer to the users’ body allowing for more instinctive aiming and improved acquisition time to target. This innovative design also allows for a full length barrel, which means no loss of down range ballistic accuracy. Near and far range accuracy is enhanced by the minimized recoil provided by a non-lubricated long stroke gas piston system. With the exception of a hand-specific locking bolt, the rifle is completely ambidextrous allowing for easy left-hand conversion of the operating handle, ejection port, fire-control safety, sling swivel receptacles and fore-mounted accessory Picatinny rail. The TAVOR® is supplied with IDF-tested and approved magazines – but you can also use your own AR-15/M16 style magazines.
Rifle package comes with 1-30 round magazine, lock and cleaning kit.
At the end of the 1982 Israel-Lebanon War arose an understanding that the modern battlefield had changed. One of the conclusions from the war, particularly relevant to the small arms industry, was that the battle had moved from open field conflicts to close-quarters engagements – and there was a need for a seamless transition from daylight to nighttime capability on a single mission. Out of this understanding, and after more than a decade of collaboration and testing with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) - the TAVOR® rifle was born. Just as race car technology trickles down to consumer automobiles, so do these time and battle-tested firearms now become a modern sporting rifle platform for civilian gun enthusiasts.

I have wanted a Tavor SAR TSFD18 for quite some time, and if you do too, you will not be disappointed. The size is optimal for CQC. The "bullpup" design accommodates an 18 in. barrel which will fire a 5.56 almost 100 meters further than a standard "AR". The bayonet lug accommodates M7, M9, and current Marine bayonets. Easy disassembly & maintenance. Takes "AR" type magazines. Well balanced. Great "crisp" trigger. If you are looking for the ultimate "CQC" rifle that can really push the envelope of distance with an assault rifle in 5.56 NATO this is the rifle for you, and Hinterland beat the total price of anyone out there for a new purchase. I'm very pleased with the Tavor.

This is a tremendous addition to my collection! It cost a bit more than some of my other AR's, but the short overall length lends itself well to close, really close situations, such as clearing rooms. Plus, the extra 2" of barrel length enables it to reach out a bit further than it's 16"-barrel AR brothers for those targets that are normally just a bit long for a 5.56 round. Granted, it's not light, especially if an optic is put on it, but the weight distribution makes it very manageable. Hinterland was great to deal with and will definitely buy from them again.

Solid performer and great battle rifle. Trigger is ok which is expected out of most bullpup's but break is crisp. Youtube Tavor and watch Nutnfancy review for a great 45 minute review of the rifle.
