This video is from our first trip to the range with the new IWI X95 bullpup Rifle. Like the Tavor the X95 will run any kind of ammo you want to put in it. We tested Federal, Remington, Tula, Wolf Gold, Wolf Steel, and a few others with no issues whatsoever. The recoil is smooth and fairly light, just like it’s IWI big brother. The new magazine release on the X95 is ok, but we still prefer the one on the Tavor better. The biggest and best improvement over the Tavor is the built in rail system on the new x95. The new gun has both left right, and bottom standard picatinny rails, with easily removable covers. The new X95 also features a full picatinny top rail with back up sights that are built into the rail. Overall our first impressions of this new offering from IWI are very good. We will do another video on the gun after we have had a lot more time with it. If you want to learn more about the new X95 rifle from IWI click the link here:
We have been asked several times if the aftermarket IWI Tavor triggers, such as the Shooting Sight TAV-D, and Geissel Automatics Super Sabra work in the new IWI X95. The short answer is yes, but with some minor modifications. We go over what needed to been done to our x95 in order for the Shooting Sight TAV-D, and Geissele Super Sabra triggers to work properly.
Shooting the IWI X95 micro Tavor in full auto was a blast at the 2014 Bullpup Convention! This little rifle handles like a race car and is as fast as one too! The X95 is quick on target and ergonomics are excellent. The new location of the magazine release was very natural and familiar. We loved the picatinny rails under the forend covers for mounting all your accessories to the gun. Now we just have to wait for IWI and the ATF to play nice together, so we can get a civilian legal version to market. The weapon had not one problem that we seen while shooting in both semi and fully automatic. They shot a lot of ammo through it let me tell you, I’m talking thousands of rounds! So, what more can we say about the Micro X95 Tavor? It’s fast, smooth, sexy and handles like a dream. What more can we say? We want one for our own!
