Awesome, it looks like we'll have a couple of options between that and Timney's drop-in trigger. Both will be in the 4lb range, both are drop-in, they will both ship in March 2014 and will be about the same price.

Geissele will be 2 stage and Timney will be 1 stage. Decisions, decisions...

Thanks for posting the video!

Application?

300 yds and under, get an Aimpoint

beyond, get a 1-6x

stay away from busy reticles.

Apparently there is a new Tavor trigger besides the G and Timney triggers; Shooting Sight.

Hmm, still in the $300 range. I think that I will stick to a known quantity like Timney or Geisellie.

I agree with Blue - KISS when it comes to the reticle on the Tavor. Because it's a bullpup, I didn't really think that I would use the Tavor for anything long distance and I am a big fan of EOTech's holographic weapons sights. In fact I have their XPS2-2 on my AR57 and PS90. However, my eyes have recently decided to betray me and anything more than 25 yards has started to look like a blob. That's a big "does not compute" for me because, well, see my videos of shooting gummy bears. There's just something really cool IMHO about being able to hit something really small.

So bearing that in mind, I got the EOTech G33 flip to side 3x magnifier just in case I needed to reach out and though something small-ish. I considered going that route, but I wanted to try something different. I have an ACOG that I thought about for about 32 seconds but I didn't like the idea of the fixed 4x magnification - I wanted to start with 1x.

So I chose an expensive compromise: the Leupold Mark 4 MR/T 1.5-5x20mm M2. I figured that if I didn't like it then I could put it on another rifle but soon figured out that the 1.5x still offered very quick acquisition and if I ever needed to shoot at any kind of distance, then the 5x was more than enough to get the job done.

Anywho, to make a long story long - the Leupold is staying put on the Tavor.

Just my $0.02 and as always, YMMV.

I bought the same Leupold scope! when I go to the range, I make converts for this model. Now if I could just trade my AR15 for a Tavor. (Hint)

Well you obviously have wonderful taste in optics. Oh and that trade, I'd be happy to do it... if you threw in a car (hint) :p

An Aimpoint will have me sleeping on the couch. I don't want that.
I have to find a reasonable alternative for less money. I was thinking about moving my eotech from my ps90 to the tavor and getting something else for the ps90. Some suggestions would be helpful. Please I blew the budget in the last six months on guns. Two sig p938s, a ruger mini-thirty, and now the Tavor. Oh and don't forget about 4000 rds in ammo for each gun. So reasonable optics just to get me 6-8 months down the road.

Don't have to get an Aimpoint; it was just a generic way of saying get an unmagnified red dot optic.

Vortex SPARC cost a zillion times less! :)

We went to the range a few hours ago. Everything was as amazing as I would have imagined. I used the fold up iron sights for a couple hundred rounds. Everything was flawless. I am thinking that I may re-purpose my Eotech onto my Tavor and then buy a Vortec or Cmore sight for my ps90. I havent been to the range for recreation in over a year and a half. I miss my "guy" time, however my lil one is almost a year old.... She is why I should practice more....

Come on up to North Florida and we can dual-wield Tavors!

Actually, I may be heading to the Pompano beach area in the next few weeks. I could always throw the Tavor and maybe another gun or three in the trunk.

I have the Tavor IDF model. I wanted it as the Mepro M21 mounts directly to the barrel. I have the triangle model M21 stock which is the best of both worlds IMO. Use the tip of the triangle for longer range & the lower half for CQB. The IDF uses this setup, so it's proven with the Tavor.

I also did some early upgrades to it as well maybe I'll get some pics posted up. I'm on the list for the 1st run of the Shooting Sight trigger, as I think it is the best between the 3 options soon to be available to the public.
