    I've been shooting this rifle for 2 years now, the Tavor is definitely my favorite gun in the safe. I only just acquired a CTAR barrel over Christmas. At 15" these only rarely come out of Israel and are very desirable. There is rumour that they are more accurate than the conventional 18.5" barrel, but I have yet to test that at a range over 100 yards.

    Here is the 18.5" version compared to a 16" AR-15:

    But now that I've installed the 15 inch barrel its just a great gun to shoulder.

    Why would you pay the tax stamp and register the gun just so you can lop an inch off of an already very small gun?

    Very interesting, is that for all SBR? No stamp what so ever?

    I'm limited to 5 rounds! Except . . . [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bt9a_QPFd50"]I'm not really.[/ame]

    As far as the SBR rules, things get weird. Ready for a quick legal lesson?

    In Canada there are 3 tiers of firearms:

    Non-restricted: the default. rifles and shotguns that may be carried anywhere, hunted with, and require only basic storage safety.

    Restricted: handguns, SBR semi-automatics, and any AR-15 variant. Can only be carried too and from a legally authorized shooting range. Must be registered with the Govt.

    Prohib: The "assault" class. Anything that appeared in an action movie in the late 80s early 90s. All kalashnikov variants etc. Cannot be fired legally ever. Only grandfathered to those already possessing the license.

    Now the Tavor, because it has a full length barrel, cannot go full auto, and is not prohibited by name, is by default a non-restricted. However, if I install a short barrel, the rifle falls into the restricted category and needs to be reregistered with the government.

    But, any change resulting in a change of class for the firearm must be submitted within 30 days of the change being made, if it is to be permanent.

    Rather than register and unregister the firearm (no fee) every time I change barrels (5 minute process) I just never leave the shorty barrel installed for more than 30 days.

    All that make sense? If so, you won a pretty picture and [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-29Gz5zR18&list=PLhdxIRaqdPjpvJ8Ryor_BDHvnVjOI0U_K&index=2"]a video with lots of shooting![/ame]
