    Yeah prices dropped mere moments after I paid $1100 for my used ARX. LOL

    See I would feel fine with an arx at that price range. The tavor needs to be cheaper.

    Am I the only one who thinks they're butt ugly?

    Kinda like an ugly, fat girl look to them...

    I'm not really in the market for anything semi automatic. If I had the extra money to spend I'd buy every version & sit on them.

    I do have an early version of the standard Steyr AUG. IIRC it was $680.00 when I bought it. The plus on it is that registered trigger packs are available for it. I was just looking @ what that cost to do once again! If I had the extra $23K I would do that for my AUG.

    I have always liked bullpen designs. I had a High Standard A-10 Police Shotgun I bought with unemployment money as a 17 year old kid. It was a cool blaster, but the built in flash light always sucked. If I had the B version I would of kept it!

    Did you ever get it to feed, fire, and extract reliably? I've never heard anything but horror stories about how badly they worked but you're the first person I've ever heard say they actually owned one so I'd love to hear about it from someone with real experience.

    Mine ran great! Fed any ammo I threw in it too. I run mixed slugs & shot with never a hiccup.

    The flashlight set up was really strange I ended up redoing it with a switch in the pistol grip & red LED bead. Trigger more or less sucked because of a long linkage. Traded it for an AK, Sold the AK to a buddy & made money. He doubled his.

    Nah. I am running a PDW brace on one and the new SB3 brace on the other and they are fine. More recoil than a 5.56 obviously but totally manageable.

    Charlie, are you looking to get a Tavor SAR? Or, are you just perusing the cornucopia of information available in all the various threads that eventually depart from the origin and end up offering various tidbits of information on all matter of subjects that can do nothing but make the reader a learned individual?
