A dedicated customer base will let a company know what they desire in future products. At that point, you will see one of two things happen. The company will either listen fully and apply all the changes appropriately or the company will go their own way. There are two sub-categories to the latter. The company will apply changes in their own manner or not at all.
Over the last couple of days, I have been able to do a little T&E work with the Tavor. I was able to borrow a Trijicon TA31F ACOG from a good friend. I’d like to thank Matt for donating the optic and some ammunition for the testing. I also decided to finally do a little modification to the trigger pack. Finally, I ran one of the most visually appealing AR-style magazine — in my opinion — the translucent Lancer Systems L5-AWM.
The Tavor SAR is my go-to platform when it comes to rifles. It has replaced the Kalashnikov that I used to primarily run. Everybody’s platform is different and based on their needs. This also means that they are ever-changing.

This past month, I received my Concealed Handgun License, after it was released by the “Constitutional Restraint Unit”. No disrespect to the state police, but it’s asinine that anybody has to pay a ransom to obtain a Constitutionally-protected human right. That aside, just before July began, I picked up a SIG-Sauer P229 Scorpion TB for carry… which meant a whole new holster system. It was a clear departure from the Glock and Edge Works INCOG set-up that I had been running — mostly due to the fact that the Glock sponsored the SIG’s purchase.
I was fortunate to have recently come into possession of an IWI-US Tavor SAR rifle from a long-time friend of mine. The gentleman in question operates the Midnight Run news page and also works with the Individual Sovereignty page on Facebook. My love and fascination of the Tavor rifle series did not begin when Michael Kassnar announced that he was assisting Israeli Weapons Industries in opening a factory within the U.S..
