Tavor X95 any “must have” options Login/Join 
Member
posted
I picked this up Friday and it is the Tavor X95 in 5.56

It is as it came from the factory.

Years ago I had SAR predecessor and the owner added a Giessele trigger and added various options including a gas block panel and for those w the x95 model is there any must add option?

I have just taken it apart and cleaned it.

This one’s trigger is awesome- a huge improvement in design. Anything else?

This is a daylight use gun so I am not lighting it as I have a Benelli lighted for nighttime configuration.

I bought the Gesselle trigger pack for it a while back before the Apocalypses hit.
Didn't have the X95 yet and when I checked recently the X95 was going 3 or 4 hundred dollars over retail.
So I wait.
So I have the trigger but not X95. Frown

I have a couple of these. I think they really need the geissle trigger. I've only handled mine and a few others I handled at the LGS but I have never felt one with an 'awesome' trigger. If that's what you think I think you can just load up and shoot.

Geiselle trigger pack without a doubt! They are expensive but worth every penny.
I put one in mine & it was just like the Geiselle's I had in my AR's.

All I did to mine was put a regular pistol grip on it and put a magpul AFG on it.

The trigger on my X95 is light years better than my old Tavor SAR, so I left it stock. I took the handguard rail covers off, added Ergo rubber rail covers on the side and a Magpul AFG on the bottom. It slimmed the front of the gun down a lot and feels better to me YMMV. I just felt the stock covers made it too chunky. The AFG also just puts my support hand at a better angle. I added MBUS pros because I just didn’t like the built in rear sight, I had a hard time getting a sight picture using it. I felt the peep was too small. For optics, I went with a MRO.

I love the gun for what it is, a super reliable 5.56 in a small package and I don’t have to deal with SBR’ing or possible future brace issues. People complain about accuracy, but I found it to be about the same as a 16” AR, I’m getting + / - 3MOA with whatever ammo I run through it, mostly cheap 55gr stuff. Maybe a better shooter could do better, I’m an average at best shot.
I hope you enjoy your new X95.

Lightning bow trigger. I got mine for 75 bucks and hands down the best upgrade for the money. I don’t feel the need for a hammer pack now.
Besides that a good light and I put a Comp on mine, I can ring idpa plates pretty damn efficiently with it. It’s def. a red dot/holographic sight rifle

I have a regular Tavor. I hate hate hate the cutlass style trigger guard. My first swap would be the pistol grip. As for triggers, once I removed the second trigger return spring the trigger became acceptable to me. Kind of like a mil spec AR trigger. Not great but workable. Never have had any issues with it removed either.

Trigger upgrade and RDS for my X95. Very happy with this gun once I got used to the bullpup design.

I like the gun. I have not figured out the bolt hold open but will, and wonder why it is in such an odd location!

The Geisselle Hammer pack is a HUGE upgrade and IMHO should be the first thing you upgrade.

I think that a lot of people forget that there is also a Geiselle trigger bow that also should be added. Not quite as huge an upgrade by itself as the Hammer pack is but well worth doing. Order the takedown wrench from IAI and it's not a difficult install though not as drop in quick as the hammer pack is. With it the formerly 11lb trigger is a very nice trigger almost as good as a Geisselle AR-15 trigger.

I haven't ordered a different buttplate for mine but liked the one my buddy had so it might be the next thing I'd go for.

Best of luck with yours!


Remember, this is all supposed to be for fun...................

The MagPul AFG, a Streamlight and a MRO sight were all I added. But I shot one last month with the Geiselle trigger and am definitely doing that upgrade.

beyond the trigger options. i benefited from the ejection port gasket/seal options out there (manticore,midwest,gearhead). even unsuppressed i noticed less gas up my nose or behind my glasses. the curved buttpad on my SAR from manticore was fantastic. dont have one for the x95.

Switch to a pistol grip, it’s very easy to swap out.
