Firearm enthusiasts in Maryland can finally get their hands legally on a Tavor SAR.
IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., has put its Tavor SAR one inch over the minimum overall length of 29 inches required by Marlyand state law and is now shipping to area distributors in the state.
The Maryland model complies with all state statutes in effect as of date of shipment from IWI US and still provides the Tavor SAR fan an unprecedented experience in firepower and performance.
The model Tavor SAR (TSB16MD) is built on the 16.5-inch barrel model with a 3.5-inch removable muzzle brake that yields an overall length of 30 inches — a minimum of 29 inches is required by the state of Maryland — when attached and a 10-round magazine.
The Tavor SAR Maryland model incorporates a full-length MIL-STD Picatinny top rail in addition to the standard short rail mounted at a 45-degree angle opposite the charging handle.
Backup Iron Sights (BUIS) are embedded and spring loaded in the top of the Picatinny rail and the front post contains a Tritium insert on a standard AR thread, fully adjustable for windage and elevation (tool provided). The standard caliber is .223/5.56 NATO with a 9mm conversion kit available.
The Maryland model is available in black only and has an MSRP of $1,999.
