IWI US now selling thin buttpad and short handguard on their webstore. About time. $14.99 for the buttpad, and $39.99 for the handguard. All pretty seasonably priced.

Not yet, I got a feeling that the SBR won't be coming anymore since they are selling these SBR related parts.

Per IWI today:

"We must make the SBR barrels in the US. As usual, this has taken much longer than originally anticipated. We can always get more buttplates, forearms and Pic rails so we have no qualms about selling these components now. At some point in the (hopefully near) future we will be offering SBR X95 kits that will include the 13" barrel, short forearm, thin buttplate and short Pic rail."

"The short Pic rail to go with the short forearm will be in our web store in just a few more days."

"Eventually you will be able to purchase a factory built SBR, SBR conversion kits as well as being able to purchase all kit items separately."

I thought I read here that if you pin and or welded the flash surpressor you were compliant?

And safe to use the standard butt plate.

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

The OAL may be less than 26.1" with the thin buttplate and A2. Measure twice, pin and weld once. You can always use a longer muzzle d vice if needed to stay out of SBR length.

If regular A2 brake is too short you can always use BCM's extended A2, they are the same diameter as regular A2, so you can move the X95 handguard on and off easily.

you guys got me thinking and rightfully so, this is some serious stuff. But i know it was 26 inches at least from the tip of the factory A2 to just before the top (longest) part of my receiver right before the buttplate hinges down. I will remeasure for sure, but i don't see how it could not pass. Thanks very much for the insight!

I am measuring 26 1/8" to the end
of the body before it turns down.
And with a conservative 1/4" guess on the
slim butt plate it should exceed the requirement of 26.1

Wow. Maybe I'll pin/weld my suppressor mount and sell my Manticore and buy the thin pad.
