IWI Licensed TAVOR TAR-21 Airsoft AEG Rifle by Umarex w/ Metal Gearbox (Color: Black / Competition Series)

"2 years ago on Christmas day, I received this gun from my parents. I sent it back about 9 months later (it had a year warranty from Umarex+Elite Force) because the wires you see when you open up the stock were ripped up, therefore; the gun wouldn't fire. It was probably something stupid I did but I really don't know. Within 2 weeks of sending it back, they just sent me a new one. I still have it today, and use it as my primary for pretty much every situation.

Here's some Pros and Cons

Pros:

750 RPM with a 9.6v battery. This isn't an insane fire rate, but it's still pretty fast. I usually use semi anyway though.

The 300-350 fps might turn some people away from this gun, but it actually does reach out and touch tangos far away 150+ feet. Me and my friends even tested by setting up targets at various distances.

Feels sturdy overall

Weight is towards back so it is easy to hold one handed and not a pain to aim for long periods of time.

Back Up front sight flips out of way.

Cons:

Back sight is in the way if you want to mount an EOTech

Easy to accidentally bump mag release

"I am a beginner in airsoft, and this being my first gun, I am very pleased. Contrary to what the description says, the gun does come with a 8.4v small battery + basic charger. Not knowing this, I bought a small 9.6v butterfly battery with a smart charger. The battery fits fine, you just need to situate it correctly. Definently recommend the smart charger + upgraded battery. I also immediately upgraded the spring to a m130. The original spring is either a m100 or m110, and I noted a difference. One problem I have is that the bolt release isn't working as well as my charging lever. It only comes back 1/4 of the way, and the bolt release doesn't release it. I believe something happened when I was changing the spring... Any help would be appreciated. I had to also use the hopup alot as well, when I first shot it, it dived down, but with a flat head screw driver that was fixed quicly. Overall, I love it. The butt of the gun is the heaviest part, obviously, from the bullpup design, so you got to hold your arm up. The iron sights are terrible. I use just the front one, and it seems to work okay. I recommend getting an open red dot sight, something I need to get myself.

Pros:
Bullpup
Great accuracy
Easy to manuever
CQB
Easy to Upgrade
Durable
Super easy opening of battery compartment
Mag in back, easy to reload

Cons:
Iron sights
Bolt release and charging lever don't work.

I recommend this gun to everyone.

"Awesome gun! I considered the more expensive version, but after having this gun for about 3 games I loved it and knew I didn't need to spend more. It feels awesome, operates well and if you put a 3 cell lipo on it it has a very increased rate of fire. The only con would be the small battery compartment, although a little bit of grinding it out will give you more room for you 2000 mah lipo's.

"I just received this gun at about 7 this evening and it was my first bull pup style rifle. The gun shoots phenomenally. The adjustable hop up is extremely easy for people who don't know how to mess with your airsoft rifle to tinker with, children could do the adjustments. The gun shoot spot on, very accurate and very fast as well. If you are looking for a first time airsoft gun this gun would be an amazing airsoft rifle for you. The mag feed is good, the flip up iron sights are good, the hop up is easily accessible, the gun is all around solid.

"This gun is a great starter gun with a whole lot of good features.

Easy to access hop-up
Cool functioning charging handle
just as long a an mp5 with an additional 8+ inches on the barrel
great for CQB
320-360 fps
takes M4 mags
bull pup
easy to access battery compartment
threads on barrel

CONS
need to buy rails if you want to put more on it than an rds

mag may fall out if your hand slips back


Great bullpup starter gun, would definetly recomend
by Daniel C. on 06/09/2015
"Do you want a affordable bullpup AEG? Look no further! This amazing platform offers multiple things.
1. Compact Design allowing for more control over the weapon.
2. Easy to operate weapon that takes little to no effort to use.
3. Nice battery space.
4. Excepts magazines from different brands
5. Great range!
6. Steady FPS around 310
But like other things it has a bad side!
1. Back heavy like a **************
2. All plastic. I would have liked a metal body but the plastic is nice.
3. No front rails for PEQ or grips
Other than that its great. Just buy it for the alone times and shooty times

"best gun i ever totally recomand it for new players best gun in range i have
by Paulo L. on 03/31/2015
"I got this one about 6 months ago, and I have to say that is was worth every penny!

Pros:
Accurate (easily capable of hitting human-sized targets at 170 feet)
Strong construction (accidentally slammed mine against a steel wall during a game, and the gun wasn't even phased)
Approximately 360 fps, it's an excellent rifle for indoor fields (it's not the hardest-hitting gun on the field, but it really does make up for that in accuracy)
Requires very little maintenance (cleaning, lubing, etc)
Accepts a multitude of different model M4 magazines (I've used JG, G&G, G&P, Matrix, and Lonex mags with mine and I've had zero failures)

Cons:
Battery compartment is only big enough to house an 8.4 v small type battery (even a 9.6 v small type battery won't fit)
The gun's battery plug has a tendency to slip back into the its compartment, and getting it out is fairly difficult (needle-nose pliers work best to get it back out)

All that being said, the gun still gets 5 stars from me because it's accurate, reliable, and very simple to use. I would recommend this gun to any airsofter from the brand new beginner, to the well-experienced veteran.

"I love everything about this gun
by Cade S. on 12/13/2014
"Why is everyone saying it has a high rate of fire. This is probably the gun with the slowest rate of fire right out of the box for it's price. If you are looking for a good aeg do not get this one try one of the Raiders from G&G Raider series thoughs are good.
by Bryan E. on 05/07/2014
"I got to try this gun out in the shop and instantly bought it. Fps is a little slow (380 stock) but it has quite the accuracy at long range. Taking it apart does suck but once you get the hang of it its easy. Its plastic outer shell but its solid plastic. No wiggling room. Overall awesome gun out of the box! I tossed 70$ worth of upgrades into it (motor,spring,piston,air nozzle) and its one of the better guns on the field. Also we dont have too many that come back into the shop to be fixed, so theyre durable.

Pros:
Great out of the box
Accurate
Lightweight
No wobbling
Takes standard m4 mags (yay for cheap mags!)
Easy spring change
Hidden long barrel (hence why the accuracy is so nice)

Cons:
Back heavy (personal preference)
Trigger is kind of far forward from the grip (small hands may not be a fan)
Internals will not last if you only upgrade one or two things (if you want a better spring, you must upgrade a few other things)

Overall great gun! Id highly reccomend it!

"I received the Elite Force Tavor two days ago. So far, I believe it's a good all-around gun after testing it multiple times.

Pros:
Good velocity (for CQB)
Decent range
Metal where it needs to be (outer/inner barrel, gearbox, trigger, and dust cover)
Comes with a battery (8.4 v)
Very quiet
Accurate at around 30 yards
Compatible with M4 (or v2 gearbox) gears and springs

Cons:
Mostly ABS plastic externals
Can't fit some magazines
A bit rear-heavy, but you get used to it

After all, the Elite Force Tavor-21 competition series has quite a few advantages. It is a very unique design that can compete with most airsoft guns in any sort of game (hence the name).
by John L. on 12/20/2013
"So far this is a wonderful gun. a tad bit backheavy, but that is to be expected from a bullpup. Fun to shoot so far, still tweaking the hop a bit. The only problem I have run into so far is that the gun doesnt seem to want to take magazines other than the one it came with (the mag lock wont lock properly with echo 1 M4 mags). High ROF with a 9.6, but you get an electrical smell from the stock when you fire. havent skirmished with it yet, will most likely be an awesome skirmish gun.

PROS
Good weight
Nice solid composite body
The metal is solid
High ROF
looks crazy
near perfect match to the real weapon

CONS
Wont seem to take echo M4 mags
Electrical smell after short periods of firing
its "that gun" from call of duty.

So all around awesome, Good looking gun, unfortunately they put it into a modern warfare game so now its just "that gun from MWF2". still a very nice gun.

"This gun a is an incredibley well made gun. The polymer that its made of feels unbreakable in your hands. The accuracy is simply amazing as the bulpup design allows a very long barrell. I can see myself being able to dominate in any scenario be it CQB or Field play.

The Good
Compact (for an assualt rifle)
Excellent external build
pretty good ROF
amazing accuracy
battery installation is realativley easy

The Bad
None so far
