The Israeli Tavor TAR-21 bullpup is the hot new rifle these days. Most reviews of the Tavor have been pretty favorable so far with rifles selling just as fast as they’re being produced. Like with any popular firearms, there’s sure to be an influx of accessories from the aftermarket industry. Israeli accessory retailer Zahal recently started selling a new aluminum Picatinny bottom handguard rail for the TAR-21 Tavor from Fab Defense. It’s made from 6061 T6 aluminium and compensates for the Tavor’s handguard angle to allow you to mount accessories parallel to the rifle’s barrel. It does require some drilling of the handguard to work, but according to this how-to it doesn’t look too difficult. It retails for $60 at Zahal.org. Can we expect Magpul to jump on the Tavor bandwagon next?
