RAMAT HASHARON, Israel -( Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) – a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for law enforcement agencies, governments, and armies around the world – will market its TAVOR X95 Bullpup Rifle in Canada starting from the first quarter of 2017.

According to Shlomi Sabag, IWI’s CEO, “After years of activity in the Canadian market and the successful sale of the TAVOR rifle and the JERICHO pistol, the company is proud to launch its cutting-edge TAVOR X95 rifle in this market. Deployed by the IDF (Israel Defense Forces) and many other armies throughout the world, the TAVOR X95 is one of the most advanced bullpup rifles available, combining long barrel with compact dimensions, to provide high accuracy with enhanced maneuverability.”

Based on the US model, the Canadian TAVOR X95 will be adapted to Canadian laws, with an 18.6 inch barrel. The rifle will be manufactured and assembled in Israel on the same production line used for the US market, and will therefore carry the “IWI US” markings.

It will be exported directly from Israel to Canada, and, like the TAVOR, will be classified in Canada as non-restricted.

Recently selected as the 2017 “Shooting Illustrated” Rifle of the Year, the TAVOR X95 will be offered in two calibers – 5.56mm and 9mm – with a 9mm conversion kit also available for purchase. The TAVOR X95 platform incorporates a tri-rail forearm covered by three removable vented rail covers. The TAVOR-style grip is modular and can be easily converted to a more conventional AR type.

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 a similar AR-15 location on the TAVOR X95. Available in Black, FDE, and OD Green, the TAVOR X95 features a lightweight trigger pull, weighing around 3 kilos.

The rifle can be purchased with compatible sights from Meprolight – either the MEPRO M21 Day/Night Self-Illuminated Reflex Sight or the MEPRO RDS or RDS PRO (M5) Electronic Weapon Red Dot Sight.

The TAVOR X95 rifle is an innovative firearm that was created and developed in close collaboration with elite units of the IDF. As the standard IDF assault rifle, it is exceptionally reliable in even the harshest weather conditions, and complies with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms.

Sabag continued, “The marketing of the rifle in Canada will begin during the first quarter of 2017. For information on the arrival date in your region, please contact IWI’s Canadian Distributor, North Sylva Co., or your local dealer or gun shop.”

    1. Tavor X95 has serious jamming, short-stroking problems after 3-400’rounds. Had to mortar it several times as bolt would not open. Also several bolt over failures. This is not what I expect from a milspec weapon. I am feeding it assorted military ball to determine accuracy. UnReliability seems to overwhelm anything else. Anyone else have these problems? Kind of annoying to have to clean gun in middle of a shoot. Glad no one shooting back at time.
      Any feedback, please contact George at [email protected]. Thank you

    2. After seeing the unboxing videos on you tube I was surprised to see my x95 came in a black case. Looked nice but your cheap metal strap ends broke at both ends, first time causing my X 95 to fall to the ground, luckily not more than three inches, with my meprolight mepro mor attached. Still waiting for my meprolight MX 3-F magnifier flip sight. Second time right off my shoulder, but thanks to my fast reflexes I grabbed it before it hit the ground. While the cable lock is shown both in the videos of the unboxing and listed in the manual, there was NO cable lock. Any reason for this. IWI US says I have an Old manual and it should have not listed it. No reason given for the you tube unboxing. I guess its like THE MAKO GROUP’S explanation of the MISSING 8mm wrench and the flash guard listed in their manual for the meprolight mepro mor.
      Dealers are not even aware of this. I guess I’m the only one that reads the manual.

      Thank You
