** = These are the 5.56 NATO headspace gauges, NOT to be used with .223. These are assumed correct, but no verifying information seems to exist


NOTES:
  • 5mm punch from McMaster-Carr can be used as a jag for the bolt assembly by wrapping 1-2 cotton patches around the handle. Its sufficient for cleaning the larger opening.
  • 19mm wrench from Park Tool is a shop cone wrench. This is one example of a light weight, low profile, military grade wrench that can easily be included in your carry-along cleaning kit.
  • The Tavor cleaning kit provides cleaning rods that DO NOT accept the "standard" tips, brushes and other attachments normally used for cleaning. This is due to the depth of the starting thread in the rods along with the thicker/wider diameter of the attachments above the threads. The only attachments that work (for me) are those provided with the Tavor's cleaning kit. I added the Otis Improved Weapons Cleaning Kit which will hold all the tools necessary for the Tavor (except the big bottle brush and hammer) and still maintain a relatively small package. The Otis kit also has flexible "rods" with standard threads that accept most common accessories as well as being easier to store and carry.

I didn't need a 1.5mm punch to remove the safety lever/cover. A 2mm worked just fine. However, Beretta's pin punches go down that small:

    http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/handgun-tools/pin-punches/beretta-pin-punches-prod26493.aspx (http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/handgun-tools/pin-punches/beretta-pin-punches-prod26493.aspx)

or use a punch with a replaceable pin punch:

    http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/general-gunsmith-tools/punches/replacement-pin-punch-2-long-039-dia--sku080507239-545-2266.aspx?sku=080-507-239 (http://www.brownells.com/gunsmith-tools-supplies/general-gunsmith-tools/punches/replacement-pin-punch-2-long-039-dia--sku080507239-545-2266.aspx?sku=080-507-239)

Get the 3/64 inch pin punch. Its smaller than 1.5mm. Or get one larger and turn it down...

McMaster-Carr has an 1/16" roll and spring pin punch which should also work. Its slightly larger than 1.5mm.

Why are the instructions for conversion to the Left Hand Bolt in the manual when you (IWI) won't sell the bolt?  Ya don't need to be a "gunsmith" to headspace this rifle, just need a set of gauges.

Page 32 shows lube points for 5.56 NATO.
Page 33 shows lube points for 9mm.

Shouldn't the 5.56 lube points also include the ejector (shown on page 33) and possibly other points?

  Hi Again
  Homeland Guns will be shipping us a TAVOR this week as I understand,there is an owners manual coming with it.
  My question is. Is there an Armours manual pertaining to the TAVOR avaliable for sale from some one on this fourm?
  Steve
   
   The easiest way to find something lost around this house is to buy a replacement.

If you are looking for light weight, low profile heavy duty (or military grade) 19mm wrenches, I bought two of these (see attached picture):

    http://www.parktool.com/product/19mm-shop-cone-wrench-scw-19 (http://www.parktool.com/product/19mm-shop-cone-wrench-scw-19)

They are thin and easily stored in any cleaning kit that also contains cleaning rods. This is a shop cone wrench (http://www.parktool.com/product/19mm-shop-cone-wrench-scw-19) from Park Tools (http://www.parktool.com/). They can also be purchased through Amazon among other places.

This might have been clear/understood by others, but until I took a close look at the zeroing tool, I didn't see the subtle features. I'm speaking to the elevation adjustment portion of the tool; the larger hole in the center.

This hole has two sides:

  • As pictured in the latest manual on page 28, this side adjusts the elevation AND the tritium.
  • Flip the tool over on its horizontal axis and this side adjusts the tritium without moving the elevation.

Upon closer inspection, you can see the difference in depths of the cut-out and better understand the design and purpose. I did not see this in the manual. It might also be helpful if the tool was marked on one side to differentiate the sides by touch. You could use the notch, but that requires a specific orientation of the tool and a tool that actually has the notch...mine does not.

I would like to know what purpose the notch opposite the small hole serves.

Am I reading this wrong or are you saying that using steel cased Russian ammo voids the warranty?!

Quote from the manual:

"...foreign or military surplus ammunition of
unknown or questionable quality. The use of this ammunition will void the
IWI US, Inc. warranty..."

I plan to get a Tavor but would primarily be shooting Wolf with it for financial reasons as I have a stockpile of it, but I don't want to void my warranty doing so.  I guess I need to know what falls into the category of "questionable quality"

Thanks

Here is our first revision to the TAVOR SAR manual. (V08.011.01.09.53).

Sgt. P, please make this a sticky.

Thank you all for your valuable input after our first printing. Have at it with this one and let us know what other errors we might have to correct in the 2nd Revision (third printing).

This error is present in all versions of the TAVOR SAR MANUAL.  Specifically on the  REV "B" manual  the error is on page 56, Section 15.5 "Removal/Installation of Flattop Rail"
Tools: 2mm Allen Wrench.  The correct size needed is 4 mm Allen Wrench

Awesome thread.


Now, if the Bullpupforum.com people would only switch the "white on black" formatting on this site, that would be awesome.

I spent waaaaay too long working on getting my bolt group back together on my brand new X95 last night.  The instructions in the manual lack explanation of the one simple reassembly step of putting in the firing pin first and pulling it over the notch to set it then inserting the bolt.  The instructions seem to indicate the bolt and pin can go in together which to me isn't the easiest way to get the pin over that notch.  Thank God for YouTube and somebody doing a video that explained that simple fix in great detail.
