Update on the IWI Tavor 7 and TS12

Courtesy of the gents from BurstReviews, there’s now some new first-hand info from SHOT Show on what happened with the Tavor 7 and TS12.

The TS12 couldn’t cycle 2 3/4″ shells correctly, and had to be sent back for rework. It is supposedly almost ready for prime time.

The Tavor 7 had accuracy issues (2.5 MOA being the stated number in this video). They are still working that out, with no ETA. That’s unfortunate, but probably a good decision given the X95’s problems in that regard.

No update on the Masada pistol, alas.

Meprolight USA

Not huge news, but it appears that Meprolight has opened a US subsidiary. Their website is at meprolight.us, but it’s not up yet. They are apparently at SHOT Show. Meprolight is owned by SK Group in Israel, which is the same outfit that owns IWI, so I would expect some amount of corporate overlap between the two in the USA.

One of Mepro’s biggest problems in the US with selling their optics is that their warranties are far below the industry standards (which are usually 5 years to transferable lifetime), so I am hoping that their new presence will allow them to improve that.
