Bullpup designs like the Tavor move the bolt carrier group and magazine behind the shooter’s strong hand, bringing most of the weight of the weapon closer to the shooter. This allows for a shorter package that is easier to control and faster to manipulate around obstacles in a CQB environment. Conventional CQB platforms are a trade-off between barrel length and long range energy and accuracy. However, the Tavor uses a 16.5 inch barrel giving it capability past 500 meters in package 26 inches long, 4 inches shorter than a collapsed M4. Its piston design and use of advanced composites give it outstanding performance out of water and in sandy environments.
