This sux. Bought a RH w/assumption of LH bolts being available at some point based on IWI literature.Just shot it for first time today and took 3 to chin before adjusting my cheek weld. Owww that hurts. no probs once i figured out a modification but man does that hurt.Is possible to shoot a RH model LH but gotta be very careful about placement. Love the gun otherwise. Just disappointed by this stance by IWI. Maybe someone will make a larger brass deflector...I'd buy one .
what type of scope do you use? I am a lefty by nature-But started practicing years ago to shot either way. Mostly due to the fact I was into trap shooting: Finding a left handed shot gun was next to impossible. Anyone who's shot skeet or trap knows what I mean about stock can't on a shot gun.
Anyway Try shooting it right handed -do you shoot both eyes open? You should-With practice it's even possible with a variable scope. I feel funny with one eye shut-Unless I am making a really long shot. I wouldn't be using the Tavor for that anyway:
The head-space issue seems a tad strange since you'd encounter this even if just replacing a right hand bolt with another: The only reason they could possibly be taking this position is like SGt said Liability-Maybe someone already pushed that envelope. One bad apple don't ruin the whole bunch is a wive's tale
