When first holding the new civilian Tavor SAR I was not expecting the lack of ambidextrous safety selector, not after all the ambi-hype I’d heard. While not left handed, I do fire from the weak side enough to appreciate such things, not that I’m any good at doing so. I also appreciate having the muscle memory to pick up any standard AK or AR and have an expectation of controls and function, so I don’t feel tremendously compelled to bedazzle every rifle with bits of glitter and in-fashion accessories. But I doubt I’ll be handling a lot of other Tavors in my life.
SEF Tactical is currently working on a solution. They started with duplicating the original Israeli ambi selector [image below]. Now testing different variations in shape and size to make it the most comfortable on one’s trigger finger.
