Timney Trigger For The Tavor

    The only issue I’ve ever had with my Tavor is the trigger. Of course we all know the trigger is made for a combat rifle not target shooting so it really wasn’t anything unexpected.That issue has been remedied with the receipt of my Timney trigger for the Tavor. As you can see from the photos the quality of the Timney trigger is what we’ve all come to expect.


    Installation is very simple. For those not familiar with the Tavor the trigger assembly is a modular unit. You simply punch two pins out that hold the trigger group and bolt release in the lower part of the receiver. Remove the old trigger assembly and slide the new trigger assembly in push the takedown pins in and you’re done.



    • Because of the unique, bullpup design of the Tavor the Timney replacement is a two-stage trigger feel.
    • Lightweight 6061-T6 CNC Machined aluminum housing.
    • Wire EDM cut, heat treated, Teflon nickel coated hammer to guarantee a lifetime of reliable service.
    • Factory tested and preset at 4lbs. (Not adjustable)

    After installing the trigger assembly I took the Tavor out to the range and fired about four mags. This trigger is very nice indeed. The factory preset of four pounds is right on the money. I used my trigger pull gauge before shooting and after and it read exactly four pounds.


    The trigger takeup is reduced, as is the reset when compared to the factory trigger. It’s very smooth throughout the pull and breaks cleanly. It’s what one would expect from a premium trigger.


    Besides the fact you get a much better feel with the Timney trigger your group sizes shrink which is no surprise when you consider the reduced trigger pull and clean break. The trigger doesn’t come cheap considering there’s a lot more to this modular unit as opposed to a regular rifle trigger. The MSRP is $352.95 but I have no doubt the Timney will last through a lifetime of use.
