IWI Tavor 7 308 7.62 Black T7B16
The Tavor 7 is the next evolutionary step in the Tavor bullpup family. Based on requests from military and civilian customers alike, the Tavor 7 is IWI’s introduction into the 7.62×51 bullpup rifle offering. The Tavor carries the usual reliability expected of all IWI products with some increased ergonomic features. This includes the ability to lock the charging handle without the use of the bolt catch. It also maintains the M4 type ambidextrous magazine release system and 45 degree ambidextrous safety. The TAVOR 7 is a fully ambidextrous platform on which the ejection side and the charging handle can be switched quickly and easily from side to side by the user. The ambidextrous features include: safety lever, magazine release, and bolt catch similar to the X95. The IWI Tavor 7 also includes an M-LOK fore-end as well as MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rails at the 12 and 6 o’clock positions, to allow the use of multiple devices and accessories. The rifle’s body is built from high-strength impact-modified polymer, and has a hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel for enhanced accuracy and life cycle. Additional features include a short stroke gas piston with a 4-position gas regulator, (including an OFF position – a unique feature designed for special operation needs), a rotating bolt system that ensures maximum safety for the user, and a pistol grip that can be changed or modified. Restricted States: Sales of this rifle may be restricted in certain states and the District of Columbia. Please check with your local authorities regarding your local firearms laws.

I've shot many of guns. With that being said, I am very pleased with my Tavor 7 and with it being my first rifle to own. The Tavor 7 has been a hit at the range and one of the range masters seemed to wanted to keep it for himself. Had no issues with it yet. The charging handle seems a little stiff, but no real other problems. I'm 400 rounds in on the .308
This gun is a blast to shoot! While it doesn't have a rubber butt pad it is soft shooting for a .308. Don't let Dewey confuse you. this gun is rated for both .308 and 7.62 NATO. I have shot close to 1k rounds of .308 through this beast. I have also fired +1k rounds of wolf 7.62 NATO. This gun has not had a single malfunction since I picked it up from my FFL. Every round has gone bang. However, I have a few friend who had light primer strikes with Tula... I mean a lot of light primer strikes. That being said, IWI is currently working on this issue and besides, I have never bought Tula ammo and won't likely in the future either.
Ordered this gun and to my displeasure it is not rated for .308 as the title says. The manual specifically says to use 7.62 NATO. I have no idea what IWI was thinking when they built this gun since there is plenty of competition out there that is rated for both. The grip on this gun feels awkward. I know with my Steyr AUG the gun will rest on the web of my hand and its a comfortable feeling that feels natural. That is not the case for this gun. The grip on this gun must be longer because when I was holding it my hand kept sliding up on the grip and I would have to keep adjusting my fingers. But the bottom line is that I would not recommend this rifle because it is not rated for .308 which is just stupid in my opinion.
