NRA Gun of the Week: IWI Tavor X95 Rifle

by
posted on June 9, 2018

The Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Tavor X95 is a long-stroke-piston-operated, semi-automatic bullpup rife that is the answer to critiques filed by shooters of the standard Tavor SAR rifle. Those issues have been addressed by a relocated, non-reciprocating charging handle, a reconfigurable pistol grip and trigger guard, a lightened trigger pull and relocated magazine release. Additionally, IWI added a low-profile bolt-release button and a handy fore-end with covered Picatinny rails. Learn more about our NRA Gun of the Week in this week's video hosted by American Rifleman’s Brian Sheetz.
