7 Facts you need to know about the IWI Tavor

Number one is the cost!

The retail is around $2000, you can get them for under $1800.  This is a pretty big downfall of the high cost. Some people feel this way about the cost.

Saved up for a Tavor Bought a Ak74 ammo and training instead

Bullpup Configuration
You should already know this Just by looking at it. Overall length is much shorter than a AR-15. Some people love them. Some people hate them. They do have a lot of advantages and the disadvantages can be overcome with Training.

Yea it is pretty space age the Bulpup design

Uses standard AR-15/M16 magazines
Most of us own a AR-15 and we have lots of wonderful Pmags around. It is wonderful we can use them on the Tavor. Also that Flat Dark Earth color looks good.

100% Ambidextrous Configuration

This is a big plus for lefties. Good for cross training. Get your Magpul art of the gun skills going.

Optional Conversion Kit

They have kits for 9mm and 5.45×39. This ammo is a lot cheaper to shoot. Can be as low as 13 cents a round.

All that ammo!
IWI Tavor converted 5.45x39
How about a SBR in 5.45

 

 

Backup Iron Sights

These sights actual look pretty good. and that is a savings of $100. Not all models have this. Make sure the model you are looking at does.

Tavor Weight is 7.9 Pounds

That is kinda heavy when you can get AR-15 at 6 pounds. Most of the weight is in the back of the gun and feels fine in a bulpup, but you be the Judge. IWI makes good stuff. This one may or may not be right for you. The deal breaker for me is the cost.

Good shopping centers for Gun Online

These are some good places to shop for Guns and ammo online. Prices are getting higher and higher. Making it harder to get into the sports of guns. I really like this Gun Deals.com

the nav header of Gun deals

gun-deals.com

This one has such a large home page it is dumb. Good deals tho.

Side note. Buying Guns and Ammo online is fine. Guns purchased online have to go to a FFL dealer before the buyer gets the gun. A background check is preformed by the FFL dealer. Banning online ammo sales makes it harder on the market for good companies to do well. Any one can enter in and compete over the internet. We need free markets. Cost of entry is already made too high for others. We need you! become apart of the community!

3D Printable Gun and guns.

Yea, we are closer than you think with a 3D printed gun. The design is in the works for a 3D printer to print a gun. And even making a Printer that can print other printers! Yes amazing I know. The Torrent file will be put out and anyone will be able to print the gun. This is amazing. The Goal I had here for an Open Source design was to be more like how the AR-15 is today. Any one and everyone is making parts. A community would come together to be like “we need this kind of steal here and plastic is just fine hear. No need for this to be aluminum.”  The Design would be our own and not another AR-15 copy that has a kitchen skin on it. That is the way I would like to see it. Testing this and that. The cost of entry may be too high. We would need a lot of engineers. I will blog about it for now.

What is Open Source Gun?

Open Source Gun is going to be a web site community of information about firearms and products. Participants will be able to quickly look at the data gather and understand if a product is for them or not. (it is not that yet, see below why)  Open source gun needs your help. we need your knowledge, experience but not your opinion. Open source Gun is not another form. That is why we don’t want Opinions but there will be a place for that. We would like to know from 500 gun owners that they are having issues with this gun and this ammo. Data like “gun was lubed up when this gun had this issue with this ammo?”

Has this gun shot 1000 rounds without being cleaned and have no malfunctions? Very inexperience people will be able to find a gun for them.

Goal 1: Grow the Open Source Gun Community.

Community Mozilla Open Source, loga png file
Mozilla works because of Great Community

Goal 2: get the web site up and going with data collection, and we all learn from that data.

Goal 3: design a Open Source Gun that the community designs.

Wonderful simple design, no BS marketing.

Well it is a web site that has a lot of issues. This site is run by Glockman1727ak47 (that is me!) I am a budding programer. that is why things look the way the due. Why is open source good and why is it bad? It is good because the best ideas come forward. When it is bad there is not enough support and involvement from the community. We really need you. We are using WordPress because it is has a great Community and is what we know. Through sharing knowledge about guns we protect our rights and we can protect ourselves with the knowledge we have.

Hello world! Welocme to the Open Source Gun Blog.

Welcome to Open source Gun Blog. Oh yeah we are just getting started. Podcast coming soon! We all about Open Source stuff and we want to open the knowledge up to you and everyone.

We are not opposed to making money. But we wont stand for BS marketing. You will not find the secret ninja tactic you only heard about in movies. We want this to be the real deal.
