ARES T.A.R. 21 (TAVOR Bullpup Assault Rifle)

Yes! Since Operation Cast Lead , I was hoping the airsoft world would soon develop the Tavor Bullpup Assault Rilfe for airsoft gaming. Well boys and girls, ARES Airsoft finally developed an airsoft replica of this beautiful AR.

ARES T.A.R. 21

The T.A.R. 21 is an Israeli bullpup assault rifle with a selective fire system, the name T.A.R. 21 is an acronym for Tavor Assault Rifle – 21st Century. It was selected as the future assault rifle for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and has been the standard issued battle rifle for the Givati Brigade since August of 2006 and of the Golani Brigade in August of 2008. The IMI Tavor TAR21 can be seen in service with over 10 countries around Europe, and in the Middle-East.

The T.A.R. 21 is an Israeli bullpup assault rifle chambered for 5.56x45mm NATO ammunition with a selective fire system; Bullpup rifles are configured in a layout in which the bolt carrier group is placed behind the pistol grip; this shortens the overall length but does not sacrifice barrel length. The T.A.R. 21 provides carbine length, but rifle muzzle velocity. The bullpup design is also used to minimize the silhouette of soldiers and to maximize effectiveness in turning corners in urban warfare.

The ARES T.A.R. 21 is truly a beautiful AEG, with the body of the gun made from robust FRP complete with licensed trademarks and logos from IWI TAVOR Industries and an imitation M.A.R.S (Multipurpose Aiming Reflex Sight) Unit complete with an aiming laser. The body texture looks absolutely stunning, the T.A.R. 21 feels great in your hands, snapping up from a low ready position to a firing position whilst having instant target acquisition is achieved through the great positioning of the M.A.R.S. unit.

Both the front and rear iron sights are available through a simple flip, but are usually hidden along the top of the TAR-21. Due to the unique design of the ARES TAR-21, the spring is located right in the buttstock allowing quick and easy spring changes, therefore allowing you to upgrade/downgrade your rifle on the fly.

This is one lovely piece of machinery that cannot be skipped over, especially if you are an Airsofter!

Tavor Bullpup Carbine



This is the new Tavor Bullup Carbine used by the IDF at Operation Cast Lead. I’m wondering if  Airsoft manufacturers will someday produce this kind of gun. Good for CQB Operations.

Thanks to my Flickr contact, Oren Rosenfeld for these photos, who is currently with the IDF troops at Operation Cast Lead.
