So,......to answer my own question. "Does a 18'' barrel drop into a 16.5" x95?"

The answer is yes,.....and no.

The barrel does drop directly in. Only the rail mounts & the rear Teflon piece need be installed on the 18.5" barrel that IWI lists for the x95. Now, for the no part of the question. The hand guard needs to be opened up for clearance of the bayonet lug. That is the only modification I had to do. Overall length, WITH the thin butt plate is 28 5/8" with the supplied flash hider.

Looks good! Maybe I'm crazy, but I actually like the look of the X95 with the 18" barrel over the 16.5   Cool

Out of interest, does the bayonet mount look like it be removed?

So am I,.....almost got cold feet.

I picked up a new hand guard from IWI. So I can return it to the factory configuration if I like.

So, if I understand correctly, you just had to grind the bottom of the front opening of the hand guard in order to slide it over the bayonet lug?

Correct,......opening up the end of the hand guard was the only mod needed to install the 18.5" barrel on my x95.

Even more meaner with a pig sticker stuck on the end!   Cool

From the pic it doesn't look like you did anything. Very nice.
