IWI USA Unveils 7.62 TAVOR 7 Semi-Auto

7.62mm/.308 Winchester calibre semiautomatic bullpup rifle

AUSA 2017 saw public debut of Israel Weapon Industries’ (IWI) new full calibre bullpup rifle, the TAVOR 7. Announced before AUSA via IWI USA’s Facebook page, the TAVOR 7 is a 7.62mm/.308 Winchester calibre semiautomatic bullpup rifle patterned after the TAVOR bullpup family.

The TAVOR 7 hybridises features of both the TAR-21 and the Micro TAVOR/X95, as well as incorporating some brand new features like a toolless ejection port switching procedure and front MLOK slots on the TAVOR-like handguard.

Unlike the original TAVOR, the TAVOR 7’s ejection swapping procedure is very quick and simple. To complete the procedure, it is also necessary to remove the bolt and rotate about its axis, then replace it. The charging handle can also be swapped right to left via an even simpler process using just a bullet tip, without weapon disassembly.

Where the TAVOR family has previously used a Desert Eagle-style bolt profile with non-axisymmetrical lugs, the TAVOR 7 utilises a Stoner-type bolt, similar to an AR-15 or AR-10.

The rifle clocks in at a very modest 8.6lbs, which is scarcely heavier than the original TAVOR itself, despite being designed for a much larger calibre, and sporting a substantially stronger barrel. The TAVOR 7 takes SR-25 magazines.
