I'm not going to hold my breath on this, but will remain hopeful.

The fact the guy was showing off a working rifle gave me hope. Though I'm torn between the Tavor, FS2000 and Beretta's upcoming ARX-160. I guess it'll come down to price, reviews and availability.

This is definitely exciting. Stay vigilant with emailing, calling and protesting the proposed gun legislation so that this rifle may have a chance to enter our market. At around a $2000 price point, this rifle will be very competitive with the existing market.

IMO, this is not in the same playing field as the Beretta ARX because it is a bull pup and thus offers a completely different utility over conventional modern carbine designs.

The Tavors are now being manufactured by IWI in the US in Harrisburg, PA. According to IWI's facebook page the first batch shipped out this week to the distributors. I expect it will take a little while for them to fill all the preorders, but you should start seeing them around relatively soon. I've already got one on order.

Well finally got to take a breath last night (see earlier post) & picked up my 16" flat top Tavor. Nicer than I expected, I may have become a convert to bull pups. I originally wanted the IDF version w/ the Meprolight 21 already mounted. So far haven't seen any available. The advantage to the flat top unlike the IDF version is the ability to mount a magnifier with an optic or a larger variety of optics with the full rail. I ordered a new Meprolight 21 & have a magnifier w/ a quick release so that I can use it on my other rifles. Just not sure if I will shoot any of then any more. :>)
