The IWI TAVOR and what’s basically the V2.0 of it, the TAVOR X95 (reviewed here), have been strong sellers in the U.S. market. Considering their extremely compact size, excellent reliability, and AR-15 magazine compatibility, it’s no wonder why. To appeal to even more buyers, the X95 is now shipping configured in 300 AAC BLACKOUT flavor from the factory. IWI US’ press release follows . . .

The Highly-Anticipated IWI US TAVOR X95 in .300 Blackout is Now Shipping

Ultra-reliable, ergonomic, compact and now available in the quiet yet hard hitting 300 BLK, the TAVOR X95 may just be the ultimate personal defense weapon.

Harrisburg, Pa. (May 2017) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is pleased to announce, after much customer anticipation, the first shipments of its award-winning TAVOR X95 in .300 Blackout are leaving the warehouse and shipping to dealers everywhere.

“Our customers have been clamoring for us to release the X95 in 300 BLK for quite a while. It’s not hard to see why; 300 BLK can be shot subsonic and suppressed, yet still hit hard. Combine that with the compact, ergonomic and ultra-reliable X95 and you may just have the ultimate personal defense weapon. We are pleased to announce that the first shipments of our X95 in 300 BLK are leaving our warehouse today, both in black and flat dark earth,” said Michael Kassnar, VP of Sales and Marketing for IWI US.

The TAVOR X95 recently won the 2017 Golden Bullseye Award for Rifle of the Year from Shooting Illustrated. Before it was winning awards in the U.S., it was in Israel defending freedom and fighting terrorism, proving itself to be reliable and capable in the most extreme conditions.

The X95 in 300 BLK eats subsonic or supersonic rounds, suppressed or unsuppressed, due to the barrel’s easy-to-adjust integral gas regulator. The rifle incorporates a tri-rail forearm covered by three removable vented rail covers, allowing the shooter to customize it with lights, lasers and other accessories. The TAVOR-style grip is modular and can be easily converted to a more conventional pistol grip with a traditional trigger guard. The charging handle has also been relocated closer to the shooter’s center mass and unlike the TAVOR, the ambidextrous magazine release is located in the traditional AR-15 location near the trigger guard on the TAVOR X95. Available in Black, FDE and OD Green, the TAVOR X95 features a lightweight 6-pound trigger pull. MSRP is $2.049.00.

    • Sure it can…. it just has to have an over all length greater than 30″ (long flash hider “permanently” attached) and be “featureless” (have one of those easily removed kydex paddle things that wraps around the pistol grip).

  1. When I see these guns, in any caliber, I’m tempted.

    So far I’ve resisted but one day that Siren’s call is going to get me since I don’t regularly have a crew and ship’s mast with me when shopping.

    • It’s a really good gun. Probably the best bullpup out there right now. If the MDR ever sees the light of it may give it some competition but right now there is nothing better.

        • Did you know there’s no period in (preceding) 300 BLK? Or in 300 AAC BLACKOUT? KB is too cool for punctuation 😉

          At least the Tavor doesn’t have a 15 lb trigger like the AUG haha

        • “Did you know there’s no period in (preceding) 300 BLK?”

          Nope, and thanks for pointing that out to me. What I love about TTAG, most every day I learn me something new. 🙂

          The AUG may not have a great trigger, but for some people of a specific body-type (short, stocky build), a bullpup like that (Tavor, AUG, or similar) with its shorter length-of-pull is an ideal platform.

          And the available (very expensive) drop-in select-fire trigger pack makes it even more *sweet*.

          Are there *any* NFA registered Tavors with a giggle switch out there?

  2. Dear bullpup makers,

    I absolutely LOVE the concept, but there are a few things holding me back. First, your prices. $2k for a rifle that does the same thing as my AR is not a good deal. My AR has a few accessories too, and I’m not even sure I’ve spent a total of $1k on it, so you’re essentially charging over $1k for the bullpup feature, which is patently ridiculous from an economic standpoint; there’s no way it costs that much to build a bullpup vs a traditional setup. Whine about recuperating R&D costs all you want, but I’m not buying it (no pun intended). Second, the price – of ammo, that is. I can get a .22 LR conversion bolt for my AR and shoot for cheap. These conversions are not a new concept, and I’d have thought that by now every manufacturer of .223 rifles would have said to themselves, “Ya know, imagine how attractive our product would be if we sold a .22 LR kit for it?” Apparently I’m alone in my distaste for sending $10-$15 downrange for every magazine I shoot.

    • I really think it depends on how you look at things.

      You can look at my comments and how I feel about high-end carry guns (specifically carry guns) in the multithousand dollar range. However, one morning I woke up and realized that one of my AR setups is over $3K.

      To partially quote Hunter S. Thompson: “Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.” The same thing is true of guns or anything else that you might really get into that requires “stuff”.

  3. According to IWI US, (IWI.US) the New Jersey compliant version is the XB18TS: 18.5″ barrel, 10 round mag, permanent muzzle break (welded, no threads). Still very expensive.
    Hopefully the price will come down before NJ deems it to be prohibited.
