    I have one of each bullpup mentioned except the x95.

    To me they are just different days of the week.

    I have no training to forget so I may be in a different zone than many of you.

    The Tavor is pretty good but becomes really good when you install a Shooting Sight(IIRC)trigger pack in it. I've read about guys have success with an x95 trigger pack in the Tavor but I didn't want to try that.

    My AUG has the 20/20 trigger enhancement but I heard from Pete Athens that there is something new coming and it will be phenomenal. Ok, my third AUG doesn't get the 20/20 sear.

    Almost the best is my K&M m17s. The trigger is fantastic and it has an adjustable gas system for suppression or handloads. And it's also available in 308 with an adjustable gas system, too.

    The guys I shoot with admit its a great trigger but don't like bullpups.

    Another factor with short barrels is muzzle blast. It's much more pleasant to shoot 16" or 18" rifles. I do kinda like the fireballs my AR pistols spit out, tho :laughing:

    Sold my X95 after a very short time. Parts are harder to come by (barrels, bolts, springs, etc), everything costs more, I was never going to focus on just running a bullpup so I have no gross motor skills for it. Everything was slower to do, its heavy, yes yes the weight is all in the back, sling it and carry it all day, its just heavier. Its a bitch to do anything but a field strip and clean lightly. As something new and different in the safe its fine to me, but that is about it.

    When was the last time you rucked around anything? If you don't watch the ounces you'll bitch about the pounds... 8 ounces is a lot more than it sounds when its 100 degrees and you've just hiked 6 miles.

    While that might be true, and in all honesty, it is for those of us that have to think about such things, how many of us Really have to worry about running around in full gear?

    At the same time though, IF I were to be standing watch all day, for four legged OR two legged animals, I'd much rather have a rifle that doesn't put as much strain or tension on my arms that a barrel heavy rifle, or forward heavy rifle does.

    As with most things in life, it's a trade-off. And for me, this trade works.

    Got more time under a ruck than you got under a roof..
    When I get back in town Monday got more land to clear. Got 2 Husqvarna 455 Rancher chain saws at about 16 lbs each, got 10 chains for the 20 bar.

    Yea old man in his 70’s...well come on down and garb a chainsaw and see if you can stay with your dreams sunshine!!!
