Bullpup-configured rifles have never been known for precise trigger pulls owing to the lengthy and flex-prone connections between the trigger itself and the fire-control components. And while the IWI US Tavor SAR and X-95 rifles are not regarded as the worst offenders, they can still benefit greatly from an aftermarket unit such as the Geissele Super Sabra Trigger Pack ($350). The pack is self-contained in a hard-anodized aluminum housing and features nitrided S7 tool-steel internal components. Installation is drop-in easy, and the resulting total pull weight ranges from 5.5 to 7.5 lbs. with a user-adjustable first stage. The company’s complementary Super Sabra Lightning Bow Trigger ($99) unit, sold separately, is machined from 17-4 precipitation-hardened stainless steel and features a set screw that can be adjusted to reduce slack between it and the trigger pack. Combining the two results in a two-stage, match-grade trigger pull that compares favorably with those of other high-grade conventional rifles. For more information, check out geissele.com.
