SHOT Show impressions from Mark and Tony

cmctriggersSomeone decided they wanted to be the first to own our @cmctriggers SILVER GLOCK BARREL and take it home from @shotshow. Funny thing is, there’s only 1 and it wasn’t for sale! Help us spread the word! We’d love to see it back in our mailbox at the Shop. Be decent and return it, we know it was an ‘accident’. You can’t even show it off to your friends 🤷🏻‍♀️#runcmc #runcmctriggers #cmcbarrels #stickyfingers #shotshow #glockbarrels #pleasesenditback

  • IDF  Israel Defense Force joined the development process in 1995
  • Testing by IDF began in 1997. Field testing began in 2000.
  • From IWI “ These are some of the hardcore tests that no laboratory test  can compare to: long weeks in extreme conditions, rugged terrain such as  boulders and desert, dropping,  human factors etc. “
  • Tested from 1997 to 2006.
  • The first Tavors were delivered to IDF infantry in  2006
  • The Tavor will completely replace the M4/M16 by 2018
  1. Features
  • Bull pup configuration.
  • 100% Ambidextrous $449.99
  • Can be safely fired after being submerged in water and not completely dry
  • Cold hammer-forged barrel
  • Long stroke gas piston operation for reliability.
  • 100% interchangeability of all TAVOR parts
  • Drop in trigger group…. “ Upgrade”
  • Optional 9mm conversion kit
  1. Variants

  • Price…. $1700-$2400
  • Cost of accessories
  • 500 pound trigger
  • IWI says 550 yard range… 350 is more realistic
  • Tavor Face. Gas blow back. Much more noticeable when running suppressed.

  • Bench
  • Standing
  1. Verdict…….
  • Home Defense Gun
  • 3 Gun?
  • Range Toy?

Feedback:

Gordon G.  I recently found your podcast on FB. I asked a couple of questions there, I asked about a angled front grip and a VFG. I finally have been able to get to the range with the VFG,and decided I liked it more. I'm still pulling to the left after the shot is fired, I shoot left handed, I've done a little more research, there's a guy on YT that did a test on about 30 different compensators. I'm wondering now if I need to get a better comp on my AR to help with the recoil control. And what is a good one to get. His test showed that a Precision Armament M4-72 was the best he had to test.

Thank you for your time,

Will:  Hi I'm joining Brownell and it ask where I've heard if them and it ask for a source code so they know it came from your reference do you have these things.
