Manticore.

If I could rock the thin one I would, but I don't want to pin weld or SBR.

The manticore gives a way better cheek weld than the stock one.  Really makes the rifle much more handy, and easy to aquire sights. 
I feel like the stock one makes peoples cheekwelds too low, which is why so many people buy aftermarket optics rails.

I don't mind the OEM butt pad it works well for me and my family. Have tried the thin pad on a friends rifle and found it a bit short. The Manticore works well too, but to my eye just does not look as "finished" and is not "balanced" to the overall blocky lines of the X95.

So either the OEM or Manticore depending on your taste work best IMO.

FWIW, I plan on buying several Tavors, and they are all going to have manticore buttpads on them.  You might have to minorly fit your manticore to your tavor, but it's worth it.  I've had bad experiences with pin welds ( made a bump in the barrels chrome lining, and one came loose ) so I avoid pin welds now.

I like the short pad on my 18 inch x95. I put a short mini comp on it so its probably only an inch longer than the 16.5 inch version.

I tried the Manticore and did not like the sticky rubber pad.  This week I pinned a Ron Smith vortex flashhider, and then replaced the Manticore butt pad with an IWI slim butt pad.  This is the best my X95 has felt.  The vortex flashhider was pre drilled, so the install was drill, insert pin and weld over.

Interesting. Iíve done and seen quite a few and have never seen that happen. Guess there is a 1st time for everything.

I thought pinning even the standard flash hider wasn't enough; that the OAL would still be under 26'' and one had to affix a longer flash hider to get it to legal length. But you pinned an even shorter muzzle device and it's good to go over the legal length?

A standard length 1.875'' flash hider will create a 26.75'' Tavor when installed on the 16.5" barrel

26'' is the OAL cuttof length for SBR status

IIRC
He has the 18'' barrel, there is no need to pin a muzzle device for the thin buttpad with the 18'' barrel x95 because with the thin butt pad the OAL is over 26''.

It is only with the 16'' barrel that you need to pin weld if using the thin buttpad because the thin buttpad makes the OAL less than 26 without muzzle device.


Pretty f***ing stupid law made by idiots that know nothing about guns  rant

If I was incorrect on any of the above, please correct me.

I see, I misread that. I thought he meant 18'' because of the welded flash hider. My bad.

I've also thought about getting an 18'' in order to avoid the pinning hassle but I wouldn't be able to stand the bayonet lug.

Just to throw out a warning the 26 inch measurement is WITHOUT muzzle device (bare muzzle). A 16.5 inch X-95 without the muzzle device is under 26 inches with the factory butt pad. (Something like +/- 25.25 inch).

It's true that the measurement doesn't include a screw on muzzle device. However, if your measurement of 25.25" were correct, they wouldn't be able to sell any X95s in the US unless all of them were SBRs; they're not.

I just measured mine. The IWI claim of 26.125" is accurate to the end of the muzzle, not including the muzzle device. Where did you get the 25.25" measurement from?

You are correct, the X-95 is just over 26 inches, without the muzzle device. My recall was bad. I was looking for a longer muzzle device, about 2.25 - 2.5 inches to allow use of the IWI thin pad, and not go SBR.

IWI does sell a long muzzle brake for just such a purpose.

What do you mean a longer muzzle device? Do you mean pinning and welding the flash hider that comes with the 26in X95 still doesn't make it long enough to replace the thick buttpad with the thin buttplate?
