Installed mine too.  What a difference!  Will eventually install the short hand guard, but need the new short rail.  Probably wait for it to go on sale.

This looks like a 16 incher : Is it

After taking my new 16.5" X95 to the range today and shooting for the first time I'm thinking I might just SBR it if shorter barrels become available.

This rifle with the short butt-pad, 11-13" barrel and shorter hand grip would be kind of the ultimate sub-gun, other than being semi-automatic of course.

Does anyone know the difference in weight between the regular and short handguards?

VG6 Gamma on the way to pin and weld to my X95 muzzle to avoid the SBR/NFA hassle. I'll post pics when the brake is installed. I could tell you that after several hundred rounds of live-fire dynamic drills, the thin slick buttpad is superior to the OEM and Manticore offerings, but that never really happened...

You can confirm the simulated live fire drills after you weld the brake to the barrel.  Grin

A question for you guys. Is an 18in barrel the shortest possible barrel to have with the flat buttplate without having to pin a muzzle device? Or would 17in suffice?

17" would be too short. I believe the shortest you could go on the barrel without having to pin on the flash hider would be just over 17.5". You'd have to measure it to know exactly. Chopping the 18.5" barrel could thus save you about an inch. Personally I'd make a decision on the flash hider and pin that to the 16.5" barrel. The shorter the better.
