    I have had my Tavor for around 4 months now. Just over 1k rounds have gone through it flawlessly. Ammo shot Federal and Wolf Steel cased shells. It sports an Eotech XPS2 with Larue Tactical mount that allows it to co-witness.

    Some eye candy.

    What's not to like?


    REALLY DUDE, Guinness should come out of a tap :tongueout:


    That is a very cool rifle, I wanted a FN2000 for a while but the cost was just too much then I saw the Tavor was coming and was very excited. I will have to wait for mine though, the cost is just too steep for me at the moment. Hopefully after a year or two I will have one.

    Thanks for the pics,

    If they were ever legal here... I'd buy one, no matter what the cost. It's listed as $2k for now from police dealers.

    Can you get things like that for duty, even if the Chief signs off?

    I don't really get stiffies over guns. My buddy has a Tavor and I really, really, really like that thing.

    Plus, a Tavor makes a cameo in World War Z.

    DUh... I was wondering why we didn't see all the Israeli troops with tavors!

    as for the gun itself, I love the looks and would be interested in handling one. But I cant get over the fact that it's a giant hunk of plastic

    The plastic is hard to describe. It feels like a glock just thicker. The accuracy is amazing, the trigger is crisp and reset is loud almight a 10LB trigger is something I had to get used to, I don't notice it anymore.

    Take it apart? Pull 3 take down pins, entire assy pops out the back and trigger pack falls to bottom. Plug the piston gas area with a foamy, spray brake cleaner in inside, wipe done.

    I just love the Tavor, its shorter then my buddies krink. I heard all these stories on the bullpup forums about how tavor is picky with ammo and wont eat steel cased ammo. Mine ate it, perfectly.

    I was on the wait list for ever, $1900 shipped, 15 xfer fee.

    Love my Tavors. These things are engineered REALLY well.

    Great example of over-engineering... if you pull out the trigger reset spring it will cut the pull down to around 7lbs and makes a noticeable difference. All this spring does is force the trigger to reset when there's lots of dirt and grime inside the trigger pack. AR15's don't have this and it's rare that anyone has an issue with the trigger resetting so it's not necessary. If you torture test an AR15 this is usually the first failure experienced. So, if one wants an AR15-like pull just take this spring out. If you're going to be rolling around in the mud for days/weeks and lives depend on your rifle then put it back in. Otherwise all you're doing is lowering your Tavor to the same reliability of your AR15 anyway. The added pull is from something they added to make the rifle MORE reliable than the AR15 platform.

    Took the words out of my mouth. The idea that a firearm needs to be all metal-based to be reliable died in the 1970's.

    For what you pay for the Tavor they should be able to do much better with the trigger out of the box.

    I guess that lack of reading comprehension follows you from thread to thread, huh? There's a reason for the heavy pull and it's because it was made to be MORE reliable than an M16/M4/AR15 in adverse conditions. Don't need that? Then take it out and it's not too far from the feel of a standard combat AR15 trigger. If you're focused on the trigger feel you're missing the entire point the rifle anyway.

    Seriously what they hell is your problem? You try to pick a fight everywhere you go. Grow the hell up for the love of god.

    BTW I am not the only one whom has commented negatively on the trigger. And some of it I know if related to the fact that is a bull pup.
