I received my slim buttplate today. Gotta love IWI US and their fast and track able shipping.

The X-95  measures 26 1/2 " inches with the A2 to the longest point of the buttplate.  Tomorrow I will have it pinned and welded. And the upper attachment plate is metal. Overall well made as we expect from IWI.

JMO but this is how the X-95 was meant to be. The rubber buttplate always seemed to grab my clothes when shouldering it. The slim plate shoulders quicker and fits my shoulder perfectly. And not that it matters from a practical stand point it just looks correct compared to the "door stop" butt plate.

Just make sure you want to go with the A2 and not a different muzzle device before you pin it.

This has been the only plus about New Jersey gun ownership is that by law my muzzle brake has to be pinned and welded.  I just ordered the slim buttpad.

Even if you get the short barrel with all the goodies they sell a 4 5/8" Muzzle Brake. Pin that to the barrel before installing all the other parts and your good. Get your stamp and remove the long break and rock on.. That's my plan anyway..

So, unfortunately when I hade my muzzle break Pinned I also had the barrel cut.. without any pad installed the rifle measures a smidge over 25 1/2 inches. It look like the pad adds maybe a 1/4 inch if that....

Any thoughts on adding a small wedge of hard rubber to the top of the pad to make up the difference... I could super glue and potentially drill a hole and rivet it in place.  

To make it look factory made I'd like to cover the entire pad something to give it a homogeneous look... something like the stuff you dip tools into to coat the handle with a rubber/vinyl Grip. But not that specifically. Any suggestions on a coating?

If the whole thing is just a "bad idea"  let me know that as well.  I could alway just cut the existing 2 1/2 inch muzzle break off and pin a 3" break on... but I really like my break..

It looks like the light is mounted lower then the sight?

Did you install the short rail available from IWI as well?

I'd like the rail to run to the end similar to the stock rail just shorter.

Sounds like a waste of time if you are going to try build it up. Another fellow here sanded down his factory pad. You'd be better off doing that to get it within spec.

I agree that it would probably be easier to sand down the stock pad before building up the thin one. If it were mine though, I would cut off the brake and change it.

I haven't seen too many pinned brakes that could not be drilled out and replaced. First thing I did on my NJ compliant version. Found a brake I wanted then repinned and welded. Eazy peezy. 😏

How did you guys remove the two screws for the buttpad? I tried for about a minute and they wouldn't break free

Loctite is on there. A trick I learned years ago with setups like that where you can't break it free. If no heat gun, hair dryer or other form of heat is available, you obviously don't want to melt your stock with a torch.

Get 2 of the proper size screw drivers. Heat the tips of both over a flame on the stove for 5-10 seconds. Put both blades in the screw slots and let them set a few seconds. Then twist. The heat will transfer down through the screws and loosen the Loctite. Quick and easy.

Huge improvement.

OK guys first time posting a pic. How do you get it full size instead of as an attachment ?

The thin butt plate made a huge difference in the look and feel of my X95 SBR.


How did you make your fore end that short?
