what is the small cotter pin for on the right side by the rail for? 

It retains the sling swivel cup on the opposite side of the rifle. When the cotter pin is removed, it allows the cup to then be unscrewed. The pin allows the cup to spin without unscrewing.

The whole thing is reversible.

So if you use the sling swivel, you have to have the cotter pin in?

Not necessarily. If the pin is removed, the swivel cup is still screwed into the other piece (the piece the cotter pin inserts into).

Without the cotter pin, it's possible that the 2 pieces can be unscrewed over time with use.

It's a weird design, but keep in mind the rifle wasn't originally designed with a QD swivel mount, the Israeli and canuck rifles have a polymer loop on the other side to tie paracord onto. The QD's were added by IWI US to keep us yanks happy.

The two pieces that screw together also hold the foregrip on, and they go through a tube on the barrel, so those two pieces serve to stiffen up the entire structure of the rifle.

I think the design is really really good, considering you won't be removing that part for a normal field cleaning.


Considering that the rest of the rifle is near perfection of engineering, I'm not a huge fan of the cotter pin part, and I'm even less fond of the two screws you have to remove for the forend, and the fact that the barrel isn't a true quick change. In all honesty though, those issues will only bother armorers, not average end-users.

Seems like the cotter pin  was an after thought. I would think they could of thought of something different.

If the cotter pin troubles you that much, just Loctite the heck out of the threads of the two pieces.

Not enough to send the rifle back!

I think it would have been better to use the same type of hardware they used on the barrel-lock. On one side, you have the fitting for the barrel wrench. On the other side, you use a bullet-tip or a punch to depress a spring-loaded tang before you can turn the lock. That would be a nice system.

Hopefully, as the rifle gains popularity, aftermarket systems like that will be available.

The best thing about this system is that it's 100% modular. Except for the small metal "receiver" inside the stock, literally every part of the weapon can be swapped in minutes without the need for a gunsmith.

Picked it up yesterday. Thanks SGT P.
The Tavor just seems shorter the 26". Here it is compared to my SCAR 16 with the stock folded.

Wouldn't recommend this level of dis-assembly unless you're pretty familiar with working on firearms.
