The Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd. TAVOR SAR is a semi-automatic bullpup rifle available in a variety of calibers and configurations.

gunsmithing note(s):

      • The barrel lock pivot assembly can be removed from the body/receiver using the following steps:1
        1. The barrel will need to have already been removed.
        2. On the right side of the gun rotate the white line on the barrel lock pivot assembly to the twelve (12) o’clock position.
        3. Push the barrel lock pivot assembly through the body/receiver from right to left. If you meet resistance do not force it. Just jiggle the barrel lock pivot assembly by rotating it clockwise or counterclockwise slightly until the resistance is eliminated.NOTE: Once the barrel lock pivot assembly is out of the body/receiver you will see two pins that extend from the bottom of the assembly. In step one, we align the white line with the twelve o’clock position to align these pins with the cutout on the bottom of the barrel lock pivot assembly hole on the left side of the gun.
      • Do not lock or unlock the barrel lock pivot assembly while the cocking bar is installed in the gun. The barrel lock pivot assembly will crush the cocking bar and bend it requiring replacement. 2




  1. I learned this while speaking with a Customer Service Representative at IWI. I was able to write it up and take the pictures while doing it in the shop.
  2. While I am sure that this is specified in the manual somewhere, I leave you to guess how I learned this particular lesson.
