Watched a video on Israeli special force, no narration just footage of them in training. There are a few X95s floating around, but seems most are armed with M4 or similar AR weapons. Interesting choice but they seem ok with the M4 in cqb.

Nice. Wasn't there an article last year that said the Israeli special forces (not the entire IDF though) would be switching back to using ARs?

On another note, I noticed that one of the X95s in the video has the QD quad rail front handguard, while the guy following him has the round handguard with an integral suppressor. So that handguard has not been completely phased out--it still has its place, apparently.

There's no telling how old the clips are in this video so, you can't use it as a compendium of what the IDF is or isn't currently using. It only shows what they have used. Also, just like most military units, what they use will not be one standard thing, but a collection of different tools.

Hey buddy--I bet you're a real people person...

In the video there is an integrally suppressed X95 side by side with the quad rail version. That may have been THREE YEARS AGO, Captain Caps Lock, but the fact remains. I'm not in the IDF and I don't know what they're using right now, but ACCORDING TO THE VIDEO, they were using the round handguard on an integrally suppressed X95 ALONG WITH the newer handguard. Therefore it isn't a matter of speculation that the Israeli special forces are using the round handguard for integrally suppressed X95s. IT'S IN THE VIDEO. To Rastoff's speculation that they have been fully phased out as of 2019, maybe you're right. I'll believe that when you can show me an integrally suppressed X95 with quad-rail handguard in the IDF....

For a minute I thought I had opened a thread in the MDR forum, had to slowly back out and verify this was the Tavor forum

MDR?

I'm assuming that's an actual question rather than sarcasm.  I think he means the Desert Tech forum on this site discussing the Desert Tech MDR rifle.  Go over there and check out the vitriol, discord, and mucho drama that often surfaces over all the snafus DT has had getting the rifle to a successful market introduction.  It's entertaining at the very least...but unfortunate.

YOU WANT SARCASM, I CAN GIVE YOU SARCASM. Unfortunately, not all of us are rabid desert warriors, and sometimes we don't know what something means.  Rather than just remain stupid, I ask questions.  if you find that beneath your dignity, that's a shame.

Besides, I don't see your name on the person I responded to, are you the house-mother?

I wish I could find an ignore option.

Wow!...man, did you miss the boat on my comment.  You do realize that sarcasm can be made in humor...not just as a snarky statement.  I thought your question was probably serious but I mentioned sarcasm in case you were making a joke and already knew about the MDR.  There is the occasional joke made about the DT situation as evidenced by Aussie E.  There was no attack intended from my comment.  You can probably ask most anyone on this forum about me, and they'll confirm that I don't go around attacking people in a personal way. 

Remember...it's the internet.  You don't get to see or hear the person you're talking to, so don't assume there was a personal attack just because you took some typed words the wrong way.

In case you didnt notice, I typed 3 letters and a question mark.  YOU'RE THE ONE who assumed, incorrectly, that there was sarcasm, and stuck your nose in.

You're right, I have no idea who you are, and quite frankly I dont care to.

Every forum has at least a few people who are self appointed EXPERTS ON EVERYTHING.  I guess youre one of them on here.

So please do me a favor, just ignore any comments I might make, or questions I have to ask.  That way you wont jump to any more incorrect conclusions.

And I'd still like to find a way to ignore you.

Well said. We all have better things to do than argue here about trifles. Excuse me for my part in it. Let there be peace.

Xanax for all! Didn't mean to set it off, I guess just mentioning the MDR drives people over the edge.

To Rastoff's speculation that they have been fully phased out as of 2019,...
I never said that. I merely said that we don't know what they're using. Having been associated with the US military for 35 years I can only say that it's very likely any military is using whatever they think they need and it's rare that they'll toss something just because some new device came along. Neither does that mean they will continue to use something just because they had it in the past. Again, I just said that this video doesn't tell us much except that something has been used in the past.
