Any idea when the 18 inch models will be available???

I can get a 16.5 inch now but would prefer the longer barrel.  Is there any problem putting a can on the shorter barrel??

Thanks

The first 18" barreled Tavors will ship by the end of this week.

No problems with cans on the 16.5's.

Any news from the Tavor 18" FDE front?  I feel like the last one picked in a dodge ball game, i know we're not forgotten, but it feels that way, especially when all the 16.5" troops are having all the fun.

lol funny you say that! I changed my order from the 16 to the 18 just because I thought it would be faster (more people buying 16s)

I have 11 cans and just over the same amount of SBR'ere and upppers, only problem with cans are with barrels shorter than 10.5 inches. Hence glad Surefire (the only rilfe cans I use today) came out with there Socom SB can. Now no more 7.62 cans on a 5.56 and imho? That practice never worked much anyway. But anyway the SB can be used for my 8 to 7in guns or barrels.

So with a std .223 can? Nah no problems with with any barrels from 10.5-24in+  Wink But seriously with an 16.5 and 18.5 the overall length will be quite long and on type or make of can and it may be front end heavy hence why I mainly use cans on SBR'ers or pistols. Thats the only cons in my book.

Good luck and stay safe!
