Welcome to the forum. This is a pretty darn good place for PS90 info.

Ps90 is amazing but if you get scared off by ammo prices it isn't for you. But right now there is allot of good ammo available at fair prices

now other bull pups you probably have higher on you list cause it shares the same type of ammo you have for other rifles which is a big plus. Can't go wrong with tavor. I don't have an aug yet but if you did your research everyone rates them the best bull pup

I have owned several Tavors and PS90's. The PS90 is fun to shoot but has ammo and magazines not shared over multiple platforms. The Tavor uses standard GI mags, Pmags, lancers with no problem. Have more accessible and affordable ammo. The Tavor is heavier than the PS90 but shoulders well. Mounting optics to fit your preference for cheek weld may be a PIA with both as I tried multiple options finally settling on a T1 micro for both, mounted on a low TROS for the PS90.

Perhaps you can have a friend tie you to the mast to avoid the siren's song. But for many of us it's too late regarding the PS90. Many find the design itself too alluring. There simply isn't anything else in its class on the planet for ambidextrous design, compactness, magazine capacity (and uniqueness of magazine feed design). One can argue the relative merits of the cartridge, but for what the carbine was designed for - you won't find anything to surpass it. And so say we all. (Well, a bunch of us, anyway.)

I think the PS is in a league of its own . When fully loaded w 50 it still is light & compact . No so with other b pups even if you cAn get a 40 or 60 rd mag . Just my .02.... Then you can get a FsN and run both. Softens the price of ammo a little.

Welcome to the forum, where are you form? I have both a PS90 and a Tavor and love them. Just my 2 cents, but if you get a PS90 I would go with the model that has the red dot incorporated into the rail.

I have a Tavor, and really enjoy shooting it. I can't comment on the PS90, but I'm sure it is just as fun to shoot. I like that the Tavor mags are abundant, and ammo is not as expensive as the others. I think you could probably rent these two bullpups are your local gun club, and you could get a feel of how they perform.

Tavor vs. PS90 is comparing apples and oranges. Sure, they are both bullpups... but its like comparing an MP5 and an AR-15. Figure out what you want the rifle for, then figure out which one best fits that need. The Tavor using AR mags & 5.56 ammo is certainly going to be easier/cheaper to feed, but the more powerful round may not be what you are looking for to fill a specific need.

Here's my input. If you already have an AR, AK, or Scar, then I'd say go with the PS. If you don't already have a 5.56/7.62 rifle then I'd have to go with the Tavor just simply because it fills many roles. Bullpup design, standard and available ammo, mags, and other parts. The PS is an awesome gun, but someone else said what scares me away from it. When there's another gun scare the magazines and ammo disappear and prices surge up.

The trick to that, Hairlesswookie, is to buy all the mags & ammo you need while its available so you can wait out the dry spells. :) That's why God invented credit cards. :)
