    I have question for Israel members. Today on news I saw soldiers on the border, by some fence aiming at Palestinians. I could not identify gun they were using, it sort of look like TAR-21, but I thought it look different.

    Below is a photo, the top gun is normal TAR-21, and below is what I thought I saw on news, the grippy part looked much more forward, it almost look under the end of the very very short barrel. Is it some other gun that look like TAR-21? or did I just mis-identifies it?

    It was a Micro Tavor, it's fixed to be the standard issue AR for Israel instead of the regular full length TAR-21.

    No offense but do you imagine one second shooting with such a thing? just think about the position of your arm.
