POTD: A Tavor in Jerusalem

    New Zealand blogger Whaleoil is visiting Israel. He sent us this photo of a Tavor he saw in Jerusalem a few days ago. The carbine is equipped, Israeli style, with a spare magazine attached to the buttstock and a Trijicon ACOG. The solider is a member of the Golani Brigade.

    As far as the exact version of the Tavor goes, I am going to risk my reputation and say it is an early IWI X95, possibly the longer barreled X95- L. I don’t believe that IWI still make a version of the Tavor with this horizontally grooved pistol grip anymore.
