You seem to be good at figuring things out. Now try to figure out how to resize your pics so we don't need a 50" computer screen to view them.
I came up with a mod for the magwell.the problem my mod attempts to solve is that I noticed while doing mag changes that the tavor seemed to be very picky about magazine position during insertion. If the magazine isn't almost perfectly aligned the channel in the rear of the well would push the magazine forward against the front of the magwell either making the magazine go all cockeyed or causing the front of the mag to jam against the front of the well. This mostly happened when I attempted to insert the mag at a slight side to side angle. So this is my solution I opened the rear channel up in the shape of a V so that if a mag is inserted slightly at an angle the opening will allow the magazine rib in the back of the mag to fall in the channel thus allowing the magazine to continue to be inserted into the magwell
tools need are a dremel/or air grinder with pointed carbide cutters, medium sized hand file,small hand files about 5.5",air blow gun,120grit sandpaper

If you choose to do the mod I would say maybe don't open the V quite so wide. I followed a factory line provided by the chamfer in the magwell and it seems to be more than necessary.this magwell modification seems to really ease the somewhat finicky nature of the magwell as I have observed it. Maybe you don't have the same issues I did but I have always kinda rolled mags into the magwell of my AR15's and my tavor would reject this technique sometimes to the point I dropped the mag a couple times and I feel that when tired,worn out,or jacked up on adrenaline this modification will help make those less than perfect mag changes work a little better.here's a pic of the finished product with a magazine inserted.I also noticed in one of the pics my V wasn't quite symmetrical I assure you that I corrected it shortly after taking the pic  thanks for reading

@Zombhntr
Great job!!!
We need more people like you in this thread.
Does this mod help also with mag drop free or has nothing to do with that?

Hey pretorian im glad you like it I've grown to respect your opinion on all things tavor.to answer your question it really wasn't geared towards drop free mostly to ease insertion of a mag. I personally don't worry so much about drop free mag as im a grip and strip fella myself.I would shy away from opening up the main body of the magwell too much for fear of making it too loose with some mags in some severe cases it could lead to functionality issues where the feed lips contact the bolt during operation(I've seen it on ak's with poorly cut magwell)  but I havnt studied bolt to mag clearances yet enough to know weather its a nonissue or a major concern. Its scary cutting on a rifle that's brand new and cost 2k I wouldn't blame anyone for not wanting to do it

Zombhntr, good job. Looks like there is plenty of meat back there to do this. I may have to give it a try some day.

Free floating the barrel is something I am very interested. And yes the handgaurd gets pretty warm

I'd be more interested in a free floated barrel if IWI release barrel blanks and/or extensions for aftermarket barrels.

The first step towards free floating your barrel.

How do they stackup against the stock stock flash suppressor and others?

This is what I want to know. They look mean as hell, but do they do a better job of suppressing the flash?

I'm sure it's already been posted before, but my searching is weak.  What is the purpose of the "U"?  Does the barrel not get hot enough to melt it?

Ed,

Pretorian says the U spacer is there for the IDF models to help stabilize the front sight. So for the flat top models it serves no purpose since the front sight is on the rail. I don't know what type of material it is. Some kind of rubber because it is flexible. Maybe a Viton type material to resist the heat and not melt?

I hate those Black Rain things.

Dumbest thing ever. Unless your objective is to have a muzzle device that can double a bit for a roto-zip.

They are too sharp. I once made the mistake of attempting to catch one of their rifles when one slipped from someone's hands at five feet... next time it happens, I'm not going to do a damned thing, except stomp on the gun after it hits the ground. Damned thing tore a great big chunk of flesh out of my hand.

This is my super-amateur foam battery holder. Please note I did this in about 5 minutes. It's quick and dirty, but it works great.

Started with a EVA foam (yoga block).

Cut out the rough shape of the storage compartment in the buttstock of the Tavor.

Did some quick-fitting with an exacto knife.

Use a drill to put holes to hold the batteries.

Placed 4 batteries for my Aimpoint PRO in the buttstock.

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.
