I recently picked up a tavor sar and it's an absolute joy to handle and shoot. I've noticed now after about 1000 rounds though, for some reason the part of the bolt that rides the recoil rod is starting to grind down the metal and it's becoming uneven. Slowly charging you can feel the bolt getting caught on spots of the rod (or it seems) and it's definitely not smooth in some spots. Im aware wear is normal but this type definitely doesnt dfeel to be the case. Maybe I'm wrong though. It's been properly lubricated since first taking it out of its box. Has anyone else experienced something like this?

Pictures would be helpful here. But in reality it sounds like something you need to contact IWI about.

Have you cleaned it?  Sounds like carbon build up, tavors get pretty dirty inside.

I've shot about 5000 rounds, and there is no wear at all where the charging handle rod hits the bolt.  I have wear in other areas, but no wear at all where the charging rod hits the bolt.

Put some oil on it, take pictures, and report back.

Sounds like someone tried to remove the barrel without following the proper procedure and damaged the rod.
