    But seriously, there's the RSA.

    Geissele makes triggers for the SCAR and (that horrid abomination) the ACR. Which makes this the first Geissele trigger for a non-AR they have introduced for a rifle that's MSRP is under $2000 (MSRP on the ACR is now below that mark, but it wasn't when they introduced the gun or the trigger).

    I would guess that they don't see very many people dropping $300-500 on a trigger for a $700 gun. Most people putting $2000 into an AK are going to be getting a hand-worked trigger from somebody like Krebs or Rifle Dynamics, anyway, so no market there. Particularly given the competent and serviceable, if not fantastic, options in the form of the Tapco G2 and the Red State Arms trigger groups. Even the factory Arsenal triggers aren't bad.

    Hell, the Tavor is probably the first trigger they have made for a platform that genuinely needs a nicer trigger. (And anything less than Geissele blasphemes against the rifle's IDF roots and its M16 and Kalashnikov progenitors.)

    Great news that is the one thing stopping me from picking one up.
    “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”

    I am really interested in this platform, Geissele support is a big selling point as far as I am concerned.

    I'm thinking about moving some of my collection to fund a Tavor purchase.

    I have a G2, not bad any means. I just want a flat trigger for the AK.

    I too have a G2 in all of my AKs. In my Saiga AK-101 (my go-to) the trigger was worked over by Bill Springfield and it is outstanding. I wouldn't mind having such a trigger in any of my rifles, but Geissele is a little better from the ones I have tried.

    Once I pick up a Tavor I was going to remove the extra reset spring and have Mr. Springfield work his magic on the trigger. If there's a drop-in Geissele available I will just go with that instead.

    That sounds awesome, its been a while since the Tavor has been out and since the trigger was announced.
    Can;t wait to see some reviews and prices for each.
    Maybe they will show them at shot show next year which I am sure many places are holding out their good items for.

    For it to be worth making, expect the prices to be north of $300, probably closer to $400, at least that's my best guesss.

    Another TAVOR Trigger

    Haven't heard an update from Geissele, but a Smaller Guy Shootingsight.com should have a trigger pack design done and for sale in a month: I'll be the first Consumer to get one : He designed a Trigger for the SIG556 that has really recieved high praise: I will keep everyone posted when Shooting Sights Trigger is out.

    There is a thread on the Bullpup IWI sight with updated INFO
