IWI Tavor X95 on its way to Canada

Canada has approved the IWI Tavor X95 and it’s coming very soon!

According to IsraelDefense.co.il the Canadian Tavor X95 is based on the US model, but with a Canadian-legal 18.6 inch barrel.

Estimated price of the X95 is $2600 Canadian dollars and it’s estimated to arrive in Canada already by the end of January 2017.


The Canadian X95 will have a much longer barrel than this.


The Canadian X95 will be made in Israel on the same production line as the US model, and exported directly from Israel to Canada. It will be classified as “non-restricted”.

    what is the total length of this weaopon?

          well, to comply with Canadian law it has to be over 23.6 inches in length to qualify as non-restricted, which the article states that it does.

          my own guess based on a 18.5 inch barrel would be around 26 inches, maybe a little longer.

          in regards to VanDiemens comment, I’m going to go ahead and guess that the missing unit identifier is “private part length”

  • Suppressed

    I’m curious to see if this has the same accuracy issues as the one we get or if the longer barrel fixes the issue. (Or maybe it’s been fixed in my time away and I’m just unaware.)

    • AC97

      Why would a longer barrel fix the issue?

      • Suppressed

        It’s not that a longer barrel may fix it, but rather that a different barrel may fix it.

        Granted I’m unaware of the root problem of the innacuracy issue, so if it’s something unrelated to the barrel, obviously the act of slapping on a different/longer barrel isn’t going to fix anything, it’d be like putting headers on your racecar because it’s understeering.

          I’m still baffled as to why a $1,000+ rifle made with modern tech is less accurate than my $600 AK slapped together in a third world factory…

            “Less accurate than my $600 AK slapped together in a third world factory.”
            That is being mighty generous to Century Arms.

            I found it humorous that you stated that you’re baffled to someone who’s username is suppressed

      That’s not a bad length. Even with the longer barrels, the normal Tavors are still surprisingly compact.

    • thats actually not bad

  • GD Ajax

    It doesn’t really look that bad. It’s only two inches longer than the standard long barrel version.

  • super20g

    Where’s the SBR conversion kit for the US market?

  • dkf

    I’m pretty excited about this. I didn’t know it was going to be available in 9mm straight out of the box – I thought it’d only be available in 5.56 with an available 9mm conversion kit. $2,600 before GST though… time to start saving those loonies.
