Meet the newest member of IWI’s Tavor Bullpup Rifle Family: the Tavor 7 AR in 7.62x51mm.
“We are pleased to expand the Tavor family – the world’s most popular battle-proven bullpup rifles – with the new addition of a 7.62X51mm caliber weapon, based on requests from our customers,” said Shlomi Sabag, IWI’s CEO in a press release.
“The IWI Tavor 7 enables users from the military and law enforcement markets to operate in a wide variety of scenarios at short and medium range with enhanced firepower – efficiently, safely and easily, with only minimal maintenance,” Sabag continued.
“Based on what we have already heard from the field, we expect the IWI TAVOR 7 to become a leader in its category,” he concluded. “The weapon will be available from the first quarter of 2018.”

The skinny from the press release:
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 Tavor 7 comes in four different colors: Sniper Gray, OD Green, Black and Flat Dark Earth. (Photo: IWI)

The IWI TAVOR 7 also includes an M-LOK fore-end (2 M-LOK slots at 3 and 9 o’clock) as well as MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail at the 6 o’clock position, 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, free-floating barrel for enhanced accuracy and life cycle.
Additional features include a short stroke gas piston with a 4-position variable 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.
The IWI TAVOR 7 enables 100% interchangeability, reducing maintenance costs. It is available in four colors: Sniper Gray, OD Green, Black, and Flat Dark Earth, with replaceable barrels available in two lengths – 17″ (432 mm) and 20″ (508 mm) – for various uses. The rifle has an overall length of 28.4″ (723 mm) and a weight without a magazine of 9lbs (4.1 Kg).
No word on price.  We look forward to seeing this new bullpup at SHOT 2018.

A Good Article about Bipods for Long Guns

The Bipods with the Moves: Bringing the Swagger

Bipods are probably the most underutilized piece of helpful shooting gear, a tool that should be in your toolbox. But like all tools, you need to pick the appropriate one for the job. Normal size bipods, 6-10 inches, cover a lot of gaps. But sometimes, you are forced into a less than ideal shooting position, and for that, you need something else. Fortunately, that tool now exists.

SPECS   

Type: Field Model 

  • Height: 6.75 in. – 29 in.
  • Weight: 23.9 oz.
  • MSRP: $200
  • Manufacturer: Swagger Bipods

SPECS

  • Type: Tree Stand/Blind Model
  • Height: 9.75 in. – 41.25 in.
  • Weight: 25.78 oz.
  • MSRP: $220
  • Manufacturer: Swagger Bipods

In the past, your options for a support in kneeling or standing positions were pretty much limited to two options. One was shooting sticks, which have a nasty habit of folding on you when you need them. They are better than nothing, but they also are not the most stable option. The second option was a camera tripod, preferably with a special adaptor on top of it to hold your rifle. This presents the problems of bulkiness to carry, the speed of employment and price.
 
 
 
 
 
Last week, I got my hands on an oversized set of bipods, known as Swagger bipods.
These bad boys extend all the way out to 41.25 inches for the blind model, and 29 inches for the field model. The locking mechanism for the legs is a twist lock, offering an endless variety of selectable heights. Each leg is three sections, that lock independently, making employment a cinch.
The bipods attach easily, securely mounting to either an existing sling swivel or a rail. The body of the Swagger matches the contour of your stock, and the legs house inside the plastic body of the unit. Folded away for transport, they don’t extend past the barrel of normal sized guns. To use them, simply pull out on the Bungie loaded legs, and they snap into place in a different position. The top of the legs is a coil spring, which gives the system more flex than a normal bipod, or shooting sticks. It also makes tracking a moving target a breeze.

The author’s group without the bipod.

For testing, I tried the Swagger in a couple of less than ideal shooting positions. Like most shooters, I am sure I don’t practice standing and kneeling positions enough. That reflected in my test. I shot a five-round group on a bullseye standing and kneeling, first without the bipods. The result was suboptimal. I think I can kiss an invitation to Camp Perry goodbye. Adding the bipods into the equation, my group sizes shrank by half. That is a pretty solid endorsement in my book. The idea of using bipods while standing, secured against your hips, is a bit unorthodox. But it does work, and work well. I did the same thing last week with a 6.5 Creedmoor, and it worked out great.
If your hunting grounds often require you to shoot relatively high positions or down angle shots, this is a tool you need. Perfect for either the blind or the field, Swagger bipods are worth taking a look at.
