History[edit | edit source]
The IWI Tavor 7 was developed "due to the dynamic changes in the battlefield and the necessity of a potent 7.62 mm cartridge weapon with superior performance".
Design Details[edit | edit source]
The Tavor 7 is essentially a Tavor scaled up to chamber the 7.62×51mm NATO round. The weapon is made of a highly-impact resistant polymer and can be adapted to fit a variety of roles. The Tavor 7 has a four-position gas regulator, with settings marked "Regular", "Extreme", "Suppressor" and "Closed". The weapon has three Picatinny rails at the three, six and nine 'o clock positions; the rail at the six 'o clock position is covered by default by a rail cover.
The weapon is gas-operated using a short-stroke gas piston; the weapon is claimed to be able to disassemble into two parts without the use of tools. The weapon's rifling consists of four right-hand grooves with a 1:12" twist.
