Like myself and everybody else, everybody wants one of these. When it was first announced, IWI set a MSRP of $1795, Earlier this year they change it to $1995. I bid many times on GB to get one, but I set limits on how much I'll pay (in this case $2200). I even told my dealer to order one and I would pay the premium for this weapon. I ended up running into a guy that ordered one 1 year ago and it came in. Problem was he took the money from their House purchase fund. Wife went ballistic - he wanted to keep it, but divorce was too expensive. So I made him an offer he couldn't turn down $2150. I'm happy and so is his wife.

That's not too bad of a price for being brand new and with the crap going on. I'm hoping to pick one up by the end of summer

Im interested in knowing what you truly think about it , hows the trigger feel? , if changing mags is odd ? IS the charging handle smooth or firm to pull on ?
I tried to get my hands on one of these from a dealer when they came in stock but I missed it due to having a CCW class and could not get on the cell horn to get the deal done maybe next go around

I took the Tavor out for a test run yesterday. I factory sites were way off. Took quite a few rounds to get it zeroed in. Beyond that the weapon functioned perfectly. I really like the way it throws the brass in a 3 foot circle. Easy to pick up spent cases. The trigger is OK. There is linkage and it can be felt. Mag changing is easy as this is a real drop free magwell, they drop right out. The charging handle is easy to pull and its free ie its not connected to the bolt. If you lock the bolt open, the charging handle returns to its ready position.

Overall a great weapon !

I hope to buy one myself if the price ever drops or if I got 2g's to play with, love it so much it's my pic for this forum, my friend got to play with all those nice weapons while he was a IDF and UN Security too, he wants one too after I showed him the pics and specs, he's states side and has the AR like most of us.

I got to hold one at the local gun show today. Had me sold the moment I touched it. If I had the 2k they were asking at the time, I'd of bought it right then

Anyone who has purchased the IWI have anything to say about the trigger? I've heard it has about a 12lb pull. I got to hold one at the local store and being only 5'8 the thing felt great holding it.
