It took me 28 seconds to swap my factory original Tavor Trigger out for the brand new Tavor trigger from Timney Triggers. Editing the video to show how easy it is took a lot longer. The very fact that Timney and others are producing aftermarket triggers for the Tavor tells us something about America’s embrace of this Israeli bullpup rifle. Despite what many have derided as a poor trigger, IWI Tavor sales have exceeded expectations. In roughly a year’s time on market, 20,000 have been shipped. That’s three times their original projection! Almost universally, however, their triggers have been panned as sub-par.
It’s not crisp, and I’ll debate anyone who claims otherwise. The Tavor trigger has some slack in it, whether it’s factory or the Timney replacement. Some might mistake that for a two stage trigger. Past that point, the trigger doesn’t break crisply. It’s more of a smooth roll. Some in the Three Gun competition circles prefer this type of trigger. Others don’t, but given the vast improvement over the factory trigger I think most shooters and hunters will agree it’s a win. Reset is very short and distinct.
