New Toy in the safe

Hey all,

havent been around a lot due to work, life and planning for my next trip and trying to downsize some things.

Here is a new toy for my safe. whats funny is that i sold all of my 223 including ammo and gave away my brass a year or so ago. So, i guess like a bad penny, it comes back to haunt me.

But to make life easier for me, i got the 9mm conversion kit for it, so its going to live as a 9mm toy. I did keep my AR 9mm SBR along with the 45acp big brother so the Tavor will have some company.

What i found interesting is that for an made in Isreal made/design? firearm, i think they must have had a blond moment. This is definitely not what i would call a "battlefield" gun with some small (losable) parts, screw, both hex drive and flat.:confused: i guess if you can have an armory truck on your six to keep it running or replace lost parts, it would be okay. But for me, its a toy like all of my other toys. And this is in my opinion a clincher for a no-no, there are socket head cap screws (SHCS) on this unit - both imperial and metric. :confused::confused::confused::confused::confused: the imperial SHCS is used to hold the brass deflector in place. i know that many things are made with a mix of fasteners, but imo, its not a good way to design/make things. I can understand if you need something specific or in between, but i would try my best not to design a mix master of fasteners.

one other thing about this "conversion kit" is that imo, its not made to swap in/out a lot. There is a mag well adapter that is pinned in place. No problem, except the 223 mag well is plastic and not too thick. just something else i think isn't that great.

anyway, here is pic.

I havent had a chance to shoot it yet along with many other new toys sitting in my safe, but i have to take a noob out soon so this will definitely make it out with us.

almost forgot, the 9mm conversion takes Colt 9mm mags.

The ears never lie.

    You probably suck but not knowing what it is and no pic I don't know yet.

    I think one of the Tavors in 5.56 would make a HANDY home defense/truck gun. Being a bullpup, it's nice and short, which is a plus for both rolls IMO.

    :spittingcoffee: Doesn't matter a whole lot what kind of fasteners are on a battle rifle. Other than field stripping for cleaning, if a weapon fails, the proper place for repair is at the arms depot, not out in the field. The battlefield would be a poor choice of locations to be swapping calibers anyway.
