Post here all the modifications you made , DIY projects, accessories that work with the tavor etc...

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.

That's a good one Pretorian!

I had a thread about the trigger pack extension spring removal to have a lighter trigger. Link below. My average trigger pull weight is 8lbs 2.5oz according to my digital scale. With the spring in the same pack I got 10lbs 3oz. You can easily see the spring in the two packs in the picture. Stock on the right, spring removed on the left.

Future products and ideas will be shared here as well. Hopefully this becomes a sticky!

What is the purpose of the spring you removed? I doubt IWI put it there just to make the trigger a few pounds heavier.

The extra spring is to help the trigger reset when it is filled with mud/dirt etc. But it does say you can remove it to make the trigger pull lighter.

Just saw we now have our upgrade/new accessory sticky area - GREAT
How did you route the wire out to the light?  Did you put any protective heat sheath on it like discussed in other threads?  Can you add a picture of your finished light setup?

The wire routes out via the upper hanguard.

I did not put a thermal sleeve on it because I just built it for this forum.You should use one.
I can put a tavor together with it and take pictures if you want...

Been thinking about an integral suppressor (or, as much of one as you can get on a Tavor) and came up with this. Only 6 1/4 in long, with about 3 1/8 in OAL added. It sounds great with standard velocity ammo, and when using light loads it is insanely quiet. Not going to make any dB claims without a real meter though. Enjoy!

Any help would be great.  If possible sleeve material/brand would be nice.  You have knowledge many of us desire to learn - thanks

Don't know if it matters I have the full rail version not the IDF model.

No problem, just run the cable under the rail from the side...

Some more... This setup is the closest I can get to 12'oclock light using the existing rail and not interfering with the front sight.

Thing sounds perfect, and with medium load rounds its insanely quiet. I don't trust my dB reader all that much, but if it is telling the truth then this thing is fantastic. Also, I only loaded medium res pictures because last time, the ones I loaded were huge. Let me know if you want some more!







First one!

Integral what? ... suppressor ? Can't see anything... Read max size for uploading attachments... You can resize and then attach.

Is anyone working on a 45-degree ambi safety selector switch?

Or is that just not possible, given the SAR's internal components?
