Plus he was having a blast doing. Kinda cool when a guy who has shot more then most of us will ever do in a lifetime gets giddy as a school girl over a rifle.

One came into my Class 2. I got to handle it and dryfire it. It was fun.

I can see improvements. Waiting for the 95 to judge.

The trigger is no biggie and no problem. Frankly, the FS2000 trigger makes the TAVOR trigger feel like some kind of precision/custom trigger.

Looks like accuracy is fine, just as I expected. The barrel markings on the specimen I checked out indicated CHF.

1-1.5 MOA @ 100 yds

well, I ordered a Tavor and it finally came in Friday......I plan on going out this weekend to get down and personal with it :)

(all your fault Jon/Jeff --more on Jeff, such good reviews :) )

Jon - I did that competition, did a interesting one. I'll post a longer message and a video on it...thanks for those designs!

Congrats on your purchase, I'm sure you will fall in love with the gun! To me it's kinda like a 5.56 version of the PS90/AR57. I'm not sure why, but once you start shooting, it's really hard not to empty the magazine. I don't have that problem with my DPMS AR15 variant. Maybe it's the ergonomics, I dunno...

There's just something about the Tavor.

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts Lobo.

Awesome job, Lobo. It sounds like it worked out for you and I'm glad.

In case anyone is interested, this is the first time I have seen the Tavor selling for less than the MSRP of $1,999. No CC fees either.

It may be just for today though...

Had one at the gun show this last weekend, $1800. Got to hold it but couldn't cycle /dry fire it. I like the ergonomics but not sure about the ejection port should I need to shift over to a lefty for a couple of rounds around a corner.

Hey, if you were closer to FL you could come shoot mine and see for yourself. It is so much more ergonomic than my AR15 IMHO that it's not even funny. If you don't need to hang a bunch-o-accessories off of it, I would pick the Tavor every day of the week.

I'd also definitely want to try the trigger before I buy another bullpup. Careful, I may go on a roadtrip for Christmas & take you up on it :laugh:

The trigger has gotten a lot better with use. It doesn't compare to one of my Timney triggers, but it's infinitly better then my stock DPMS trigger. Come on down and try...

Aw heck, everyone is invited. Just make your way to FL...

I plan on shooting the Tavor tomorrow, maybe some exploding targets too. Will get some of it on video.

YESSSS.

AND CDNN is selling it for 1800$

Yes, the pricetag is 300+, but retail is probably more of $290

I'm heading out for the last segment of 5.7x28mm IIIA testing

Maybe if I blow up my FsN I can buy a new MkII...

And a TAVOR....

I know that had no correlation but I needed some made-up excuse, no matter how terrible.

Well if anyone can blow up a FsN, it would be you Blue! I can heartily recommend the FsN MkII, but the Tavor is a bird of a different flavor.

Thankfully the price is coming down, but if you already own an AR15 varient then the Tavor becomes an extravagant expense. Unless you really like bullpup rifles, or unless you want a 5.56 rifle that is at least as fun to shoot as a PS90 is. Or if you have a bunch-o-cash just burning a hole in your pocket.

Oh hell, who am I kidding? If you aren't biased against bullpups, then the Tavor is a must have (IMHO of course)!

If (when?) the zombie apocalypse ever comes around, I am so gonna be dual wielding my PS90 and the Tavor. NO ONE is gonna look as tacticool as me while taking out the herd of oncoming shamblers!!!!

LOL

My FsN didn't blow up. I shot mostly EA and FN but had two custom reloaded rounds, one with custom bullets. I didn't really care if it blew up my FsN. Doing is more important than sitting on something and never knowing.

Good risks.

The testing went superbly well. I learned a lot. And I'm finally done with testing 302840384 different rounds and having clay stuck in my nails for days.
