So, I recently picked up a Tavor 7 and have very much been enjoying this rifle. I do have two concerns that I wondered if the community here have found solutions to or have also experienced.
1) any suggestions for mitigating getting gassed in the face when running suppressed? I use an Omega, but we'll have a Nomad soon.
2) are there any solutions for dealing with stuck cases when running single shot suppressed?
So far, I'm loving this thing. It's a very nice shooter and well-built rifle.

I have heard that those Omega suppressors are quiet at the expense of higher back pressure. I don't know about the Nomad. I hope it works out better for you. I'm eager to try out my OSS 762.

Manitcore Arms and Midwest Industries have produced ejection/gas port covers which block/reduce gas when running suppressed. I'm not sure if either one offers one for the Tavor 7 yet. You'll have to check with them.

They do not make a port cover for the 7. That might be a bit of challenge since they slide open & closed to make the rifle ambidextrous, and not sure if they could get to seal any better than they already do.

The single shot problem is likely due to the use of it  in single shot mode is meant for subsonic ammo. Perhaps the brass is cooling a bit and resisting extraction.

I have seen people use gasket material under their rail and I am seriously considering that approach.

Is that on the T7? I'm having trouble visualizing how that would work.
