The one I shoot has the trigger tamer installed and I find it just as good as a GI trigger on ARs.

Not tried one with the Trigger Tamer medication.

Only the 2020 sear modification (very nice!) and the Neu-Trigger.

The Neu-trigger is so simple and so inexpensive, and works so well, everyone with an AUG at the minimum should have one.

Recently introduced to this weapon system.

Very impressed with it.

Working on acquiring one.

I had my hands on one yesterday.
An ELCAN was mounted on it.

The Trigger Group is 'awkward'.
There is an Enhancement Kit available.

The Jury is still out on them in my work-space.
I like the system.
I'd prefer to wring-out FN's version before I commit.

I'm confident this w/be the direction US Forces are headed... 'someday'.

Thailand has already switched over about 40% of their Army to the Tavor.

Cambodian military police have been switching over to the Chinese bull pup.

But, I don't see the US Army leaving the AR platform anytime soon.

Flatbedder, what "Scout Rifle" do you have?

[1] Ruger & [4]Steyr Scouts.

I have been working with the Ruger in 308 for the past year.
Had the bolt-group coated in NP3.
A few of the guys I work with have shown great interest.
[It really performs well under field conditions.]
I spend most of my spare time in the 100-200m Range w/it.

It's remarkable how far one can strike w/a 2.5 fixed power scope.

I've been able to strike steel just past 500,
My Spotter reached out just past 600 on the 'UKD' Range.
The Scout Concept was not designed with that in mind,
However - if you can see it... you can eventually hit-it.

Bought myself an early AUG A1 today. I've wanted one for a while, but wasn't going to pay top dollar. Came with the original box, manual, couple mags. Bought 3 more 30's to fill the holes in the box (five slots, they only shipped with 2 filled for some reason) and a 42 rd'er as well.

We'll see where this goes. If it grows on me I can always buy a modern A3 with a rail to put something more capable than the 1.5x donut reticle on. Sure handles nice though.

Being a Type 07/SOT, I'm thinking I need to register a post sample FA trigger pack. ;-D

Wondering if anyone else has a Tavor?

Keep coming back to the idea of acquiring one. Love the 'idea' of a bullpup.

Still haven't had a chance to do more than fire a few rounds through one.

It was very comfortable against my chest. easy to hold one handed.

I was more accurate with my M4 but i have much more trigger time with my M4.

I really want to like the gun, but as I'd probably have to sell my M4 for it I would want to be sure I was making the right decision. As is its just kind of a 'cool' thing. My Colt 6920 has done everything I have asked of it and only FTF'd once - and it was def my fault for not cleaning it as often as I should have.

So, anyone running a Tavor and want to talk me into one?

Keep your eyes open the M95 version is out and people being people are "Upgrading". So you find a good deal.
You would be a fool to sell your AR before Nov glut of them on the shelves right now in my area.

We had TAVOR here at Schoolhouse earlier this year.

The Demo-models were made available for purchase.
Those that purchased them have all appeared pleased with the models.
With a couple exceptions:

The system needs a dedicated, sturdy set of BUIS'. By this I mean a fixed [A-Frame] fwd-site and an A2-style removable rear. I'm all-about rail mounted optics, even a few of the proven batt-operated ones. However, there's a reason reserve parachutes and scuba regulators don't have batteries. When you need one, you're not going to be in a position to swap out a bad-batt. Life support systems of this nature need to manually operated, simple and sturdy. The ability to remove a failed optic to continue life support during forward operations, requires a sturdy set of zeroed iron-sites.

Everyone agreed that the standard trigger group offered with the system, though manageable, was not as refined or sophisticated as the generic factory offerings in the majority of the M4-Platforms offered in the recent and current marketplace. TAVOR offers an enhanced upgraded trigger to resolve this. If I recall - it's around $150[US].

Nevertheless - I was impressed with the system, the models I've shot performed well with the ammunition and magazines we employ. However - as much as I and everyone else likes the system, myself nor anyone I know, is selling their personal M4-Systems to acquire or transition to a TAVOR. Yet I still see this weapon system evolving more-so than it already has, and it will be a contender and factor in the future arms world.

With an Aimpoint (and probably an EOtech, although have not tried) you can easily use the tube as your rear aperture for front sight engagements. Kinda like a ghost ring.

That being said, I don't have anything with an Aimpoint or EOtech at present, having gone entirely to 1-4x or 1-6x optical sights in their place. So I run Troy flip up BUIS. S/F....Ken M

As I understand it though, all Tavors come already with BUIS set inside the rail.

So what is the status on the newer X95 version compared to the SAR?

I am seeing advantages of both. And now contemplating getting a Tavor and debating between the X95 and the SAR.

X95 better trigger, AR style mag release. I belelieve one can make the trigger guard smaller similar to an AR few other things also.

There's been no-complaints or major issues with the one's here.
[They make guest appearances on Rifle Ranges occasionally]

Everyone that has one, has the upgraded trigger as far as I know.

Iron-sites are merely personal these days, various optics are mounted per the norm.

I haven't purchased one - my BCM/M4-A1 is my primary focus.

Well, think I am finally going to finally get one this week. Just got back from Thailand, and seeing many in the Thai Army carrying, that is how I am justifying it (for familiarization training purposes). : )

Like my AUGs, but think both a AUG and TAVOR set up would be nice. Going with the original rather than the newer x95 version. Just now trying to decide between Black, FDE or OD colors. ; )

Pretty nifty bipod they make for the Tavor that goes on the ass end of the pistol grip.

Trying to decide what optics to put on it. Use the EOTech I have, or looking hard at Leupold's LCO.

LP - Military Arms Channel on youtube has quite a few videos on the Tavor. I think the presenter is up by you. He has a shop in Valparaiso IN called copper custom. They carry a lot of bullpups.
