IWI Cancels Tavor 5.45 Conversion

The Tavor SAR 5.45x39mm conversion has been canceled by IWI USA. We first read about it from Funker Tactical; get updates from the Bullpup Forum thread on the topic.

What is painful about this, aside from crushed excitement and anticipation, is that the 5.45x39mm conversion exists. The Ukrainian license to build them in country, by RPC Fort, is for a 5.45x39mm variant (shown below).
