The reduction in weight is not as important as the bringing back of the center of gravity as well as less overall length, which is the goal. Helps in home defense or urban warfare situations. I plan to buy one of these to retain short length when a suppressor is used.

Waiting [impatiently] for this to come out. I'm hoping that the 300 Blackout will be available right away. If not, I might get turned off completely.

Looked a one this week at the Great American Sportsmen show, feels like a big pistol.  It is very well balanced and points well.  Would like to shoot it.

I am having my doubts that the SBR will be initially available in .300 Blackout or 9mm. UPC for only the 5.56 NATO is on the web for both Black (XB13SBR) and FDE (XFD13SBR). Nothing about the .300 BO (which I assume the model would be XB13SBR-BLK or XFD13SBR-BLK).

Left-hand bolt option also probably not going to be a thing, either, which would be fine with me since Bullpup Armory sells one for a reasonable price.

I've reached out to IWI-US and haven't gotten a response. All I can say is; prepare to be disappointed, but hope for the best.

I am hoping that this will appear on the web site & at dealers in April along with the 7, & TS12. Lets keep our fingers crossed. Next will also hopefully be the Masada handgun.

Pretty sure that's the IDF model which has been around for awhile. Notice the handguard and full auto feature. I was really hoping that was the civilian model the first time i viewed it.

Did not know it had been around for a while in 300blk (even for the IDF).  To me, I'm just happy that this is proof they have the ability to do the 300blk in a short barrel since the gas system is less flexible in it's placement than say an AR.  

So, if they already spent R&D into making it function, and they are selling civi SBR's, and they are selling civi 300blk 16", then I don't see why they would hold back on a civi 300blk SBR

I may be mistaken. I just looked at IWI.net, which is not IWI-US, and didn't see the 300 BLK SBR. Only the 9mm and 5.45x39 SBR.

I would have rather seen a shorter barrel, yet. One that had a hand guard to honey badger a suppressor underneath and a different hand guard. 10-inch barrel with a hand guard that would take a 2" diameter suppressor would have really made my day...no, year...no...decade. And to fulfill my life's purpose, they would have used the advancements of the Tavor 7.

So, if they already spent R&D into making it function, and they are selling civi SBR's, and they are selling civi 300blk 16", then I don't see why they would hold back on a civi 300blk SBR
I really hope you're right. The problem I see is that IWI-US is producing 4 new firearms this year; X95 SBR, Tavor 7, TS12, and the Masada. And they all are supposed to release about the same time, IIRC. Not only that, but the X95 SBR would have 3 different calibers ready to go. Not sure about the Masada, [though I've seen it mentioned on social media a few times] but the Tavor 7 and TS12 have a lot of interest; more than the SBR, so they probably have more of those built. It may be harder for IWI-US to justify producing 3 different calibers immediately.

If IWI-US would come out and say something confirming our hopes, I'll get on here and apologize for creating question.

EDIT: I forgot to mention that the left-hand eject bolt option would make things even more complicated. That means they would be making 3 more variants of the X95 SBR. Mine, being in .300 BO and having LH eject would be a bit of a unicorn; which means getting one might be easier or harder, depending on supply/demand.

I'm still waiting on a response from IWI on left hand option to place my order.

If no lefty SBRs are produced, I'll still order and send it back for conversion, I just want confirmation either way.

Here they said 1Q or 2Q of this year.  So hopefully by end of June.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6IrQNYSNPQ   

A month or so ago they replied to me on the gram and they said shipping in about another month.    Tongue

The UPCs are out there and some dealers will already let you order.  I think someone on here already has his order in.
