That is some good combat engineering there NoShelter!

lol thanks!

That's about as high tech as my workshop gets. I'm definitely in awe of the skills of you guys on this board.

I chose not to store batteries inside the handgrip because in the field it is a gigantic pain in the ass to get in there.

I don't suppose anyone would be interested in tackling a replacement cover for the handgrip? It should be easily removable only when it is required and desired by its handler.

This may be a stupid question but how do I slide a cable heat shield over my tape switch cable?  Switch at one end, the other has the bulky part that goes into my Surefire.

Hey All,

Just got my Tavor and it is Awesome!  I have been soaking up all your knowledge and have a question.

Has anyone tested the difference in accuracy from stock setup vs the free float mod? 

Thanks!

No. But that is because the full free float mod isn't finished. You can remove the "U" but the charging handle still is against the barrel.

Evening Troops!
My Dad helped me start working with rifles 60 years back.
When we free floated a barrel,you could check it buy running a piece of paper up between the barrel and the stock with out catching on any thing untill it hit the chamber area.
Now how can a rifle be free floated if ther's a gas block midway on the barrel to affect the harmonics and heat of the barrel.
Please enlighten me!!

There is a free floated barrel and there is a free floated handguard.
Any rifle that has a gas system can't be really free floated.
The gas system puts a more consistent preasure on the barrel than a handguard touching the barrel.
The preassure apllied by the shooters hand  to a non free floating handguard, and by it to the barrel, is changing all the time so the effect on barrel harmonics is unprodictable between shots.

Removed the  Magpul AFG 2 off of my Kriss to see how it might work on the Tavor.
A few pros and cons, but will order another one and fit it to the Tavor and it should work .  Thanks to Sgt P at Bullpup armory, the lower rail fit perfectly and seems to be very well made and would imagine it will last as long as the factory hand guard.

Here's what I've settled on for keeping batteries in my stock.  I've never been one of those clever engineer types, so this is about as low-tech as it gets.

I wrapped two AA batteries in plastic wrap, and folded a piece of foam around it, and placed it in the stock.  Plastic keeps the water out, foam keeps it from moving around.

Out of stock again ... bummer. Any ETA when they will be back in stock? Thanks in advance.

Bullpup Armory was supposed to get another batch last week (and there wouldn't have been any out-of-stock time), but it now looks like sometime later this week.

There is a link to get an email when the item comes back "in-stock".

I'm putting a link to the extra gas vent hole modification I made so it will be in the sticky. The idea is to direct the gas out the ejection port before it has a chance to get all the way into the receiver and finding multiple ways to exit the gun.

I've been shocked that nobody has come up with something yet, let alone even talking about this.  To me it is a really big failure, and should be fairly easy to fix.  While with some firearms you can see why they made the pistol grip non-accessible for storage, but this one is perfect for storage--they just so happened to make a *terrible* cover that is a PITA to remove, and will break after removing a couple times (the indents break off).
I chose not to store batteries inside the handgrip because in the field it is a gigantic pain in the ass to get in there.

How to cover the pencil thin barrel......

I found a company that makes custom  barrel shrouds, or a fake cans....call it what you want.
Kineti-tech.com, custom shrouds. Pick your can style, pick your end cap....just don't pick your nose !
$ 59.95 usd

This won't work for a 16.5" barrel.  There's not enough exposed barrel.  The minimum amount of exposed barrel for their shroud to work is 4.75".

I'll start with integrating your tape switch in the tavor hand guard:

1. Pop out the button from the hanguard.

2. Remove enough material from the back of the button so you can squeeze your tape switch behind it.

3. Put the button back and the switch behind it.

4. Done.


How do I go about running the wire into the rear of the laser device? I'm assuming I will have to drill a hole due to the wire only being 6 inches long. If there is another way to run it without having to drill a hole for the wire to come through please let me know! Thank you!
