I picked up a 9mm Tavor SAR because they were on sale cheap and I wanted to practice some rifle drills on steel at 10-50 yards for the auditory feedback training... without destroying the targets or being pelted by lead fragments. My primary home defense rifle is a suppressed 5.56 Tavor SAR (likely to be supplanted by a 300 blk X95) which is the reason to train with the similar 9mm version. Checking velocities of 147gr 9mm Lawman out of the 16.5” barrel... pretty sad. Compared to a G19... Basically it’s like a 357 Sig pistol, or a G34 with extended barrel. 9mm is great in duty handguns, but wasted IMO in pistol caliber carbines. I’ve tested long barrels and 357 Sig and 10mm... those would be great with extra bang for the barrel buck. But 9mm in a PCC? Good for training and gaming, but I wouldn’t use it for much else. IMO. EDITED TITLE TO REFLECT THE CURRENT SITUATION =>16” BARRELS.
