PHOTOS: Tavors With Indian Para Commandos

The IMI Tavor TAR-21 assault rifle is a fairly common sight now, deployed in significant numbers with the special forces, paramilitary, Rashtriya Rifles and other units. Saw these Indian Army para commandos at Exercise Sudarshan Shakti yesterday and thought I'd snap off a few. The men say they love the rifle. One of them said there had been some issues a couple years ago which had not been sorted out. They love the sight and the weight/stability of the weapon. When I asked how it compared to what they were using before, they smiled. (I had a chance to play with a Tavor in 2008. Yep, sweet.)
