Default What do you know about the T.A.R. 21?

The Tavor line of bullpups piqued my interest, and I'm looking to get an assault rifle/carbine. Anybody have an insight into the weapon? Hands-on? Performance specs? etc.

Im particularly interested in the "S.T.A.R. 21" setup (S for sharp shooter, as far as i can tell) due to its upper rail mounts instead of hard mounted MARS sight like the other 2 models, and longer barrel. EDIT: The civilian model is pretty nice too. It seems the MARS sight on it is removable.

The good? the bad? and don't spare the ugly!

EDIT: Pictures. all found at http://world.guns.ru/assault/as30-e.htm

Tavor TAR-21 assault rifle (standard version)


Tavor STAR 21 (designated marksman) rifle


Civilian (semi-automatic only) version of the Tavor. Note the different shape of the butt, handguard and the trigger guard, basically similar to that of the Micro-Tavor (civilian versions with oversized trigger guard also manufactured). Also, the Magazine release seems to be side-mounted.


NOT SHOWN:
"MTAR 21" - "Micro" Version
"CTAR 21" - "Carbine" or "Commanders" version
"TAR 21 w/ M203" - Grenadier Setup

due to image link limitations. They can be seen at the link given above.

The AR in AR stands for Armalite Rifle. Just thought I'd pass that FYI along.

Oh, and to be more precise, I was hoping maybe somebody had some hands on experience. Maybe somebody owns one?

hunter Joe:
Yeah, I figured as much at first, but it's not an Armalite Rifle.
T.A.R. 21 = Tavor Assault Rifle 21st Century, or so says wikipedia.

IMI Tavor TAR-21 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Made by Israeli Military Industries.

Dillinger:
Sweet. Thanks. I'll check that out.

The only thing I dislike about it is the fact that my cheek would be right on the chamber. That to me is asking for blow someone jaw off.

BSNinja I'm familiar with the TAR 21 although have never had the pleasure to shoot it.

I just threw out the AR FYI because I believe it is important to separate the two. I was not implying that you were some kind of do do head. Sorry, Joe

cpttango30:
Yeah, but that would be highly unlikely, I would think. er... I hope.

hunter Joe:
I took no offense, so no worries. Just thought we might be on different pages here. I suppose you were insuring that everyone else who read this understood?

Also, I find that there is a "civilian" model, that bears a few 'furniture' differences (Fore-grip, butt-stock, and trigger guard are different). If I can figure it out, I will edit my original posting to include a few pics.

That's the problem with all long guns, you got your wood right on the wood. You can't say enough about safety and always wearing eye protection and hearing protection when setting off those small explosions.

I just realized you may have been referring to my stated interest in the AR style assault rifles in another thread. My apologies. Same frequency, different channel
