The year of 2012 was a hype filled year regarding the new carbine coming to the market. It was a semi-auto variant the IDF tested TAVOR bullpup rifle. Originally slated for fall of 2012, the TAVOR SAR did not meet it’s date but did show up at the Park City, KY annual Bullpup Shoot hosted by the good people over at Bullpupforums.com. This showing proved the rifle was no-longer vaporware and the hype for the rifle was unprecedented with pre-orders selling out in record time once it’s release was given a hard date in Febuary of 2013.

However, the success story of bringing a new rifle to the market in the middle of a heated political firearms debate does not have it’s share of hiccups.

One of the things IWI marketed from the very beginning with this rifle was that it would have the end-user ability to be “fully ambidextrous” with a left-ejecting bolt. This proved to be a half-truth as anyone wishing to convert their TAVOR from right to left hand must send it back to IWI. Not a big deal but was definitely a hit to the left-handed shooters out there thinking it would be as simple as swapping bolts.

The second major thing they promised with the TAVOR was the ability to be converted to a 9mm blowback system and gas-operated 5.45×39 caliber. While the 9mm is in it’s final stages of development, the 5.45×39 has unexpectedly and inexplicably been canceled.

This cancellation comes after the conversion was promised for over a year by IWI to it’s rabid TAVOR fanbase who are most vocal at BullpupForums.com about their new favorite firearm.

Dear Funker Community,

We have removed the MP5 SD6 video due to some complaints regarding our access to such firearms. While the video was lawfully produced and broadcast there were a few vocal opponents asking questions that could not be publicly addressed due to security reasons.

In an abundance of caution and to respect all parties involved we removed the video immediately.

We apologize to the gun blogging community who may have redistributed our video. We assure you nothing like this will ever happen again.

Funker Tactical is a proudly Canadian company with strong allies in the United States and Europe. In fact, most of our fans are American! For that we thank you for your support.

It has been increasingly difficult to operate out of Canada. Without getting into details…there are people and parties hell bent on completely destroying Canadian gun culture. There is in-fighting among clubs, animosity between hunters and tactical shooters and an overall exclusivity that prevent the general public from participating in the shooting sports. THIS HAS TO CHANGE or we will simply be forced out of our own country to operate in friendlier regions. If we can all band together, face the same direction and fight the good fight together we have the power to make significant changes to the oppressive state we find ourselves in.

To our Canadian supporters. We feel your pain. We are trying our best here. We are sincerely grateful for your continued support. We are forming strategic partnerships with organizations that have your best interest at heart. Together, we will change the oppressive and restrictive environment clouding the shooting sports in our country.

To our military communities, law enforcement communities and security communities. You are the back-bone of our family. Your expert advice, critical approach and vocal nature has molded Funker Tactical into one of the loudest voices in our industry. We cannot thank you enough for being here and supporting us.

Sincerely,

Funker Tactical Team

(we understand that this isn’t an “easy” post to share…but if you did, it would mean the world to us. no pressure.)
