I was at shot show this year where I got my hands on a few to play with. Told myself it’s the best of the original mixed with the best of the x95. First gun on my list to buy. Every IWI rep there said they will be on the US market in March 2018. We are way past that with no info about them coming out. So what the fudge are they at?! I want one damnit.
Almost zero advertising as well. Hope they are not scrapping it.

IWI reps said that they had to postpone release due to accuracy not being up to par, so they are apparently trying to make it more accurate before they release it.

I'd rather they wait and fix the issue than release it before it's ready.

As above, the barrels are heading back to the home country for accuracy issues. It sucks, but I’m glad that they identified the issue before releasing a flawed product, and that they are making the accuracy of the rifle a priority.

They need to free float the barrel. That’s the biggest issue with the x95 in accuracy I think. Mine is a 3moa gun max. Even with match ammo

It’s always seemed odd to me that the X95 is noted for this, and not the Tavor. One of the bigger differences between the two is in the handguard which does make me wonder if it has to do with inconsistent handguard contact/pressure. My Tavor shoots pretty consistent. With SMKs I’d even call it an ‘accurate’ rifle, which is saying something for a combat rifle and a bullpup.

I have heard of people taking the barrel ring out of the front handguard and that helps them. Never tried it yet though

It’s delayed because IWI doesn’t want to be like Desert Tech.

I’ve thought of that, but if you take out the barrel ring, then the handguard is just supported by at the rear by one screw and the tab in the trigger guard, and it doesn’t seem to take much to deform that polymer handguard.

A lot of rifles would have accuracy issues if it was due to lack of free floating barrels...

It’s also supported by the top rail with the little polymer sliding piece that locks into it. I took the barrel rings out of mine front and back. Unfortunately between full time school, clinicals, and work I have barely done any shooting past few years so I don’t really know the effect it’s had on accuracy. I didn’t even get to be the rifle hipster with a non ar at cola warrior east last year
