    I am kind of intrigued by the design, short overall length, and non-traditional looks. Anyone here have one? Pros and cons to share? Thanks.

    Very compact for a 16" barrel. Good weight, just quirky if not used to a bullpup.

    Compared to a AR, the manual of arms is pretty different. But once I saw how the IDF is trained to use them, it all made sense. With a little practice, mag changes can be as fast as on an AR.

    I have one.

    The trigger is heavy but not really all that bad shooting off hand at the range. After I zeroed the Eotech I easily hit some broken pieces of sporting clays at 200 yards shooting offhand out at DRRC.

    It is heavy at 9lbs without a mag, but all the weight is rearward, so I doesn't "feel" heavy when shooting like a 20"HBAR AR15.

    Edited to add:
    After 3-mags the internals are still spottless..well, not spotless, but pretty darn close. Anyone with an AR knows after 3-mags with an AR the BCG is filthy. Not so with the Tavor.

    Love mine. 16" is 7.9lb, but all the weight in the back and sits on your shoulder. The way the rifle is balanced I can hit a two foot target at 300yds one handed standing.

    Have one also. Love it. Like others have said all the weight is rearward. Can easily shoot (well) with one hand. After you get used to the controls, I actually think I like them better than the AR.

    I am thinking with soft tip ammunition an excellent choice for home defense.

    Can you shoot the Tabor from either shoulder?

    Yes you can shoot from either shoulder. The trigger is long and heavy but I'm still shooting 2 inch groups at 100. Just picked up mine yesterday from Jason at JC Weaponry put 250 suppressed rounds through it today amazing how clean the rifle internals stay (even better than my piston AR) Overall length is shorter than my 10 inch AR with stock collapsed.

    Tavor next to 10 inch SBR

    So how big a deal is it to switch ejection from one side to the other, how long does it take?

    From what I have seen, you have to send it to IWI for the conversion.

    So you are saying you can't change ejection sides in the field?

    I'm still learning about the rifle, but I believe you can DIY but need to buy a different bolt so it extracts to the left.

    Imagine a battle house to house where you need to change shoulders to shoot. That ejection port in your face is going to get hot.:D

    No because of head space. They don't sale just a bolt. You can do it your self but have to buy a new bolt and barrel. But it ejects rounds foword any ways no real need to change it. I shoot with both hands with out rounds hitting me in the face. I also believe you can swap the charging handle no matter what bolt you have.

    Jim, it actually ejects forward, so a lefty can shoot it without wounding his delicate features :D
