    Sorry about that, I'll clear out my inbox in a few minutes. I'll post back shortly... This is not my area of experience, so I'll be going on opinion here. I'd like to hear too what others that own them think...

    I love mine...a little heavier than most AR's but the cog is much farther back. This puts more weight on the shoulder and basically none on the non-firing hand.

    I have handled (but unfortunately not shot yet), several.

    I think that within a limited role, it has a lot of potential. I am not the biggest fan of bull-pup designs, but this is one of the better feeling ones I have handled. The controls seem to be set up in the right places.

    In dry firing a couple of them, the trigger is pretty horrendous. Even comparing it to my stock GI spec AR triggers, it is quite heavy. I don't think Tavor's will be winning any accuracy competitions anytime soon because of that.

    I think they are a nifty little gun, but would find them a lot more nifty in the $1200 or so dollar range, and with a better trigger.

    Your trigger complaint is not uncommon. There is an extra spring in the trigger pack that IWI installs to ensure reset in the harshest and dirtiest environments. One can remove this extra spring and the trigger is significantly better. The military arms channel has a video of this actually.

    Is that a bubble badge on your rifle?

    They make trigger upgrade kits . But they are easy rifles to take down and clean from what I have seen but very but heavy so no drum mags .

    And if you live in CA or other states like that they suck as they are too short to be legal

    As a matter of fact, it is. I have also added a Texas Flag rail cover. I'm currently running the Eotech as well.

I did a lot of trading and bartering of various firearms to afford one.

    Looks like a neat gun and a good way to have an SBR without a $200 tax stamp. A bit expensive for me, though.

    This review is better than anything I can do. His experience at the time of this post is limited, but more than mine. I wouldn't give up my ARs for one, but if I had a lot of extra money or was a bullpup fan, I'd probably have one. From what I've gathered, this is the best of the bullpups.
