IWI Silently Updates Tavor X-95 Design

    Mac from the Military Arms Channel toured the IWI factory earlier this year. He published a number of photographs which indicate that IWI have silently updated the design of the IWI Tavor X-95. The newer model Tavor X-95 rifles features a different handguard and rail  (see above photo). Compared to the older round handguard (see below), the new handguard is much more angular. It looks better in my option, and is probably more ergonomic. The IWI website and brochures still features the old design and I have not received any press releases announcing an updated design. What do you think of the redesign?
