A 3 sentence article. :laugh:

 

Not surprised but, well, a little surprised.  The Tavor is not a bad gun for a bullpup.  If it weren't for the advent of "other" category AR-15's (more on this in another thread - you CT and NY guys will love this), I would have put the Tavor up there with an SBR (short-barreled rifle) M4 as top home-defense blasters.

DF Commando Brigade Switching to M4 Assault Rifles


Ami Rojkes Dombe | 3/09/2018 Contact author

 

Israel Defense has learned that the IDF Commando Brigade will replace its current Tavor assault rifles with M4 Carbines.

 

The brigade has already received the first batch of the new rifles, which will arm both regular servicemen and reservists. The Tavor AR was used in the Egoz and Rimon units.

 

This move aims to standardize the weapons carried by all warfighters across the brigade. Naturally, the process could take some time.

The M4 platform is just to big to not use worldwide. To able to put together a gun in seconds is a big draw. I'm sure cost is less than the tavor.  

I don't think their is a longgun more versatile for battle.
