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.
