I just picked up my Tavor 7. I read the reviews and decided to take a chance with this one. I had a Tavor SAR about 5 years ago that I absolutely hated. The trigger was too thin and had a 10 lb pull. Also, the top rail was way too low for my holosight and would have required a riser for me to get a good and proper cheek weld.

I got this Tavor 7 home and fortunately, the trigger is wider and nowhere near as heavy as the one that crap SAR trigger had. I put one of my Elcan Specter DR scopes (the 1.5 - 6X one) on the top rail and cheek weld is perfect. Now, I just need to replace the stock flash hider with my AAC Brake Out suppressor mount/muzzle brake, disassemble it, clean it, and get it to the range to test it out. The only thing I don't like is that it is marked Tavor SAR, instead of Tavor 7. It just reminds me of that Tavor SAR 5.56 that I want to forget.



Ugh!

Nice. I like my sar. They had their reasons for being a 10lb trigger. The sand over in the middle east.
Luckily for the aftermarket.

Let's some video of you shooting it

The 7 is the best of the SAR & X95 together. Me, I still love my 5.56 SAR. I prefer it to my X95.

All the same, congrats on the purchase.

Elcan or LPVO is the perfect addition to a Tavor...good job.

I knew that the lower portion of the hand guard came off, but, the instruction manual only said to push the foregrip button. It took me a while to figure out that the "button" has a trap door which rotated by pushing on one half of the "button," not the middle of the button, and the half swings inside under spring tension, thus releasing the lower hand guard/fore grip from the lower rail. Once I got that off, I put my light onto the lower rail. Because of the shelter in place order for my county, I'll have to see if the gun range is even open.

Looks good...!!!  Getting a Manticore Arms butt pad may be a nice addition.

I have that same Elcan 1.5x/6x optic on a Scar 17 and like it. With the current pandemic going on, I'm gonna hold off on spending big money on a scope for my T7, but am leaning toward the Elcan 1x/4x. Another consideration would be the Trijicon 3.5x35 but we'll see.

I have the Elcan 1- 4x on my 7 & really like it. Have to admit that if had been available at the time I would have gone with the 1.5 - 6x.

Yeah, I tried to order a Manticore Tavor 7 buttpad from the IWI website, but, I forgot my old password and they ask me to reset it and supposedly sent a reset link to my e-mail, but, it won't go through and the site won't let me place the order because my e-mail address is already listed as a registered user.   Angry Angry  Then I went to the Manticore site and of course they're out of stock.  Huh? I subscribed to be notified when they get more in.

The IWI USA website has them in stock and for cheaper with shipping. I ordered the buttpad and Magpul QD. They have an accessory page for the T7.

I ordered the Manticore butt pad yesterday (Sunday) and IWI shipped it today (Monday).  IWI is in PA and I'm in DE so I should have it in 2-3 days.

I ordered this past week & saw it 2 days later (in WV). Great customer service.

Without the magazine and scope the bathroom scale shows 10.2 lbs. The magazine is a 50rd drum X products X25. Now that I've got that grip rail cover off, I was able to move the Surefire light to the bottom rail. Where I can quickly activate it with my weak hand while holding the grip. Between all this rain, I've had a bricklayer coming out to work on bricking up the vinyl siding of my master bedroom. The idiots that built my brick house put aluminum siding up for the master bedroom walls. I'm going to try and get to the range maybe next week if the rain stops and they get the walls bricked up.

Correction, the magazine in the picture is a Lancer L7 AWM .308 25rd SR25 type magazine. I've taken several pictures and the others had the X Products 50rd drum magazine.

I haven't had a chance to shoot this one yet. But on my similarly situated rifles with Surefire M600 Scout lights, carbon does build up on the lens. I simply wipe it clean after range visits when I clean the rifle.

I've never seen a Lancer Mag in person. I notice its not curved like the .308 PMag and that it costs more. Do you like it over the .308 Pmag?

I received the manticore butt pad today.  It is slightly bigger than the stock butt pad.  It is 7/8" longer at the very top of the pad and only 1/8" longer at the bottom of the pad.  The biggest effect is how it grips the shoulder.  The IWI pad is plastic and can slide on the shoulder while the Manticore pad is dense rubber and holds in place.  The slight curve of the pad also acts like a "hook" to help keep the stock from sliding down. Very nice.

Just received mine too and installed it.
100% better than the factory plate in every way, just as with my SAR.

I much prefer them over the Pmag. They are a bit lighter & have stainless steel feed lips that won't break when dropped. My 1st choice.
