    I agree. I'm just not attracted to most bullpups but the PS90 would be the top of the heap for me.
    The Tavor is just not that interesting to me to want to buy one.

    See the only bull pup I've ever been interested in is the Tavor. And if I land this job I'm in contention for I will probably take the plunge and get one but only after I get an M1A and pay off the wife's kia.

    I have had my Tavor for a while. I was furtunate enough to be one of the first in America to get the Tavor through the group buy at bullpupforum.com.
    I will be using it as a duty rifle if my department does not approve the use of 308 rifles.
    I wanted something other than an AR type rifle. The Tavor seemed to have a lot of features going for it and I could understand why Israel would pick this type of rifle over the AR platform. I have heard that after the Israeli soldiers were given some time with the Tavor the vast majority preferred it to the m4. Israel knows a thing or 2 about what works.
    After spending more time with my Tavor I can say that I absolutely love it. Its worth every penny to me. My wife loves it too.
    After a little practice I find that it feels extremely ergonomic and well balanced. Its not light but feels much lighter due to its design. I feel very nimble and balanced with it. Awesome for room clearing and urban/ vehicle settings without sacrificing range/power. Its stays shouldered one handed with ease when your off hand is needed for something else. The form/ function just makes for an awesome looking machine.
    Reloads are lighting quick as I still stay on target/ downrange. All my AR mags work great but I probably like the shape of the IWI polymer mags the best. I heard that pmag gen2 don't drop free but gen3 are fine.
    The thing is built like a rugged little tank. Breaks down extremely easy, including the trigger pack. Eats everything without hiccup but seems most accurate with heavier loads.
    The trigger was very heavy when I got it. It wasn't bad at all, it was just very heavy. I removed the 1 reset spring in the trigger pack in about 4 minutes and shot a few hundred more rounds. Appearently that reset spring was added to assist with trigger reset when the Tavor/ trigger is subjected to extremely dirty/ sandy conditions. Trigger pull is considerably lighter now and resets fine. Geissele is working on a drop in trigger pack for the Tavor and like the Scar 17, I believe the Geissele trigger will make a great rifle that much better.
    If you like things that are a little different and can afford the Tavor- don't hesitate. Get it, train with it and you will never regret it. I absolutely love mine.

    If geissele made a trigger it would be a huge improvement. However, like with the scar I'd expect to pay north of $300 for it.

    What if any training classes have you gone through with the Tavor? Any AARs?
