TAVOR SAR FOR SALE
Tavor sar for sale. First introduced in the US in the spring of 2014, the Tavor SAR won immediate acclaim and achieved record sales as the first bullpup centerfire rifle to win large acceptance in the US market, due largely in part to its pedigree as the battle proven carbine of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). This is the toughest, most compact, most reliable semi-auto centerfire rifle you can own. NRA Publications American Rifleman Magazine honored the Tavor SAR with the coveted Golden Bullseye “2014 Rife of the Year” award.
The Tavor® SAR Flattop incorporates a full-length Picatinny style top rail in addition to the standard short rail mounted at a 45° angle opposite the charging handle.
The IWI has earned the respect of the firearms world with their reliable and durable weapons. The IWI Tavor SAR is one of the more established firearms from IWI, having been originally released onto the market back in 2014. So what do you need to know about IWI as a company, and about the Tavor SAR in particular?
IWI have earned their experience building durable weapons by designing those up to the requirements of the Israeli military. You know if it’s capable of functioning in the Middle East, it’s probably capable of functioning in America. But is it worthy of your time and money, and are there any problems you need to know about?
If you’re worried about the durability of the Tavor SAR, you should know this is the bullpup rifle of choice for the Israeli Armed Forces. Of course, the civilian version has been adapted to be compliant with the law, but it’s a very similar firearm.
The Tavor SAR is customizable, so if you like modding your bullpup rifles, you’re in luck. The prestige of this IWI firearm is also evidenced by the fact it won a Golden Bullseye award back in 2014.

What we love about the Tavor: It’s a capabale bullpup rifle run off of a piston system with a forward mounted charging handle – it already solves three of the complaints I have about AR-15 style rifles:
- AR rifles need a buffer-tube buttstock thereby requiring the action of the rifle to be forward of your firing hand and increasing the overall length of the rifle,
- The standard AR design is a direct impingement gas system which blows the exhaust gasses into the action, and
- AR rifles require you to move your head and bring your hand back in order to charge/operate the bolt.
So, piston driven for reliability and bullpup design so that you can get a short overall length but the velocity of a regualr barrel AND you can charge/operate the bolt with your support hand without moving your position on the rifle!!?!?? What’s not to love?
Well, the manual of arms takes some getting used to if you’re more familiar with AR style rifles. Trust me, I still am not as fast with mag changes on a Tovar as I am with an AR style rifle.
My biggest complaint about the ergonomics/controls of this rifle is the mag release! Instead of reaching for a new magazine with your support hand while you release the magazine with your firing hand (fast), the Tavor SAR requires you to use your support hand to grab the empty/old magazine to reach the release and THEN go dig for the new magazine. It’s a bit of a pain and its one of the main reasons we like the X95 vs the SAR.
