What is the IWI Tavor?
The IWI Tavor series of weapons is the latest family of firearms from Israel Weapons Industries (IWI). Forged from the crucible of constant combat in the state of Israel, IWI creates some of the finest defensive firearms in the world. The Israelis face a continual state of urban warfare that calls for highly maneuverable weapons, compact, and optimal terminal ballistics. Similarly, home defenders require the same from their home defense weapons. IWI’s answer to both problems was the IWI Tavor series of firearms. All the weapons feature a bullpup design which allows for high maneuverability due to their compact sizes while maintaining optimal terminal ballistics. Most compact weapons require a shorter barrel that robs the projectiles of needed velocity. The IWI Tavor series of weapons bullpup design gives the end-user the maneuverability of a short barrel rifle with a full-sized barrel, resulting in better terminal ballistics on target. Whether you are in the market for a home defense firearm wieldy enough for you and your spouse to handle or a truck gun usable in the most confined spaces, one of the weapons from the IWI Tavor series will not disappoint you.
