IWI presents the military version of the X95 assault rifle in .300 AAC Blackout caliber at Eurosatory 16

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) – a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for law enforcement agencies as well as governments and armies around the world – marks TAVOR’s decade of excellence in combat. The company will present, for the first time, the military version of the X95 assault rifle in .300 AAC Blackout caliber.

For the first time at Eurosatory, the company will present the X95 (MICRO TAVOR) assault rifle in .300 AAC Blackout caliber – making the X95 a multi-caliber platform with the ability to switch to any of 4 calibers (5.56X45mm, 9mm, 5.45X39mm, and now – 7.62×35 mm). The conversion is easily accomplished, requiring only a change of the barrel.

Due to the fact that the BLK 300 and the 5.56mm ammunition have the same dimensions, they both use the same standard AR magazine. Since a wide variety of ammunition can be used for the BLK 300 caliber, the rifle can be silenced at a very high level, which is not possible with the current 5.56mm ammunition.


IWI’s TAVOR family of Assault Rifles are versatile, innovative, and technologically advanced weapons that have been extensively proven in the battlefield, performing with precision and reliability, and meeting the needs of human ergonomics. The TAVOR family was developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), based on experiences acquired in actual combat. Complying with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms – including operation in harsh conditions – the TAVOR is in service in the IDF Infantry and Special Forces as well as in other countries throughout the world. It has a bullpup configuration, a barrel length and weapon size that cover all soldier’s fighting ranges – from 500 meters to indoor operations, fighting from vehicles, urban areas, etc.

The X95 (MICRO TAVOR) – which can be used as an Assault Rifle, Carbine, or Sub-Machine Gun (SMG) – is designed for Law Enforcement and Special Forces. Developed in close cooperation with elite units and tailored to their specific requirements, it was created to deal with modern terror threats, as well as urban and open area combat – all in one mission. It is the standard Israel Defense Forces (IDF) Assault Rifle, and is the only weapon available in four different calibers. Exceptionally reliable in even the harshest weather conditions, the X95 complies with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms.
