My final IWI Tavor build.

The run down:

Right handed 16.5” IWI Tavor
Blackhawk Single Point Sling
EOTECH XPS2-0
45 Degree Back-up Irons
1” offset Flashlight mount
Streamlight Polytac Flashlight

a rifle with two sets of iron sights……….

It’s actually one and a half sets. The front sight is not accessible. The Bullpup design makes it extremely easy to cant to use the 45 degree iron sights. The EOTECH co witnesses perfectly with the rear peep sight.

I’d love a chance to try out a Tavor. I just can’t wrap my head around offset iron sights (on any rifle), but I suppose with some optics, it’s the only choice if you don’t want flip-ups.

The Sig MPX…….nope, it’s the CZ-USA Scorpion EVO 3 S1. Simple but rugged Blow-Back bolt, mags drop free with ease, 30 round mags are $19.95, muzzle brake can be removed with your fingers, and it’s actually been released. Your move Sig Sauer! You have quite the competitor.

I’d take either one. Quality pieces, both.

If we’re to take the “collective right” explanation on its face, then the Second Amendment created a right that the states are powerless to execute, that the Federal government has no duty to provide, and that would be useless and oxymoronic if the latter did so anyway. If one spends five minutes thinking about the “collective right” theory, it quickly becomes apparent that the individual right is the only one that can possibly function appropriately, and is thus the only right that the amendment was ever intended to protect. To put it bluntly, the “collective right” approach makes no sense.

There is one big truth that used to hold from sea to shining sea and is now most keenly apprehended here: an argument against the individual right to bear arms is an argument that the average American is incompetent to contend with the most fundamental moral questions of life, death, and justice. It is an argument that assumes ordinary people cannot be entrusted with democracy.

– Joshua Treviño, “Founding Firearms,” Texas Monthly, April 2013

Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? It is feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man against his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American. …[T]he unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.

–A Pennsylvanian, The Pennsylvania Gazette, 20 February 1788

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms … disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

Cesare Beccaria, On Crimes and Punishment, quoted by Thomas Jefferson in Commonplace Book
