There are plenty of sources on how to run an AR-pattern rifle but are there any such for the X95? When I take mine to rifle classes I have to come up with my own interpretations of operating and malfunction drills.

I *do* have to get to an IWI Academy Tavor class someday...

Not really

I actually have thought about putting something together.

I have attended the IWI courses level 1-3, the Zahal Tavor course, and the Academi course.

There are some things that translate from the AR platform to the X95.  But many donít.

I personally think that learning how to efficiently use the platform is key.  It does so many things well.

But unless someone shows you............you donít know what you donít know

Does the IWI course include a handbook or manual?

Maybe I should give that project more thought.

Iím still working on getting my last project going.  Not as much interest as I thought there would be.  I even went thru the trouble of getting a patent.

Kevlar,
Impressive tourniquet. I have 32 years in EMS & I like it. It is a competitive market out there for these devises & there are a number of good ones to be had. Especially at this time it is hard to compete against the CAT when the military basically endorses it. But again, looks like a good sturdy design & well made product.

NAR has partnered with the Stop the Bleed program from American College of Surgeons and pretty much locked up with their CAT tourniquets for instruction along with Quick Clot. Marketing $$$...

Iím close to signing up for Tavor 1 in Lewisberry, PA July 2019 - just deciding whether to do a long drive from NH with my gun or fly in and borrow a X95. While Iíd prefer to use my own gun, itís not my personal rifle with mods I need practice with - itís the Tavor X95 specific operations I need to learn.

You can fly with firearms. Need to be secured and declared.

Past few years I take an extra day and drive.  I hate flying these days.  Last time I flew for a course was a 3 day TAPS course at the Sig academy.  Couldnít fly with all the ammo needed.  Itís just a hassle. I eat the extra days to drive and have more control over my fate.  One word of advice if you go to Alliance OH,  do not eat at Subway!

The M4/M16 immediate action/remedial action drill should still apply with the exception that the Tavor rifles do not have a forward assist. 

In the Youtube videos that I've seen, Tom Alibrando of IWI and Steve Fisher of Sentinal Conepts do not use the Israeli IWI 5 points of contact stance.  There is a distinction between doctrine and what works for the individual.

6 points with the cutlass grip.
5 points without.

4 points of contact if you're not trained by the Israelis or don't have a 30 round mag.

Certainly that's true. But the OP is looking for something to help him find what works.

Manuals are like learning Kung-fu from a book, mostly useless.

Having taken other tac rifle classes already gives you an advantage--  The IWI academy classes are the way to do it. I thought it rather similar, until Level 3. The special stuff are the one handed and non-dominant handed manipulations and malfunction clearing, that comes in Level 3.

If you can make the PA IWI class that will be the best way to learn your rifle.  Most likely that class will be taught by Tom Alibrando.  He is truly the best SME on this rifle and platform.  I guarantee you will learn a great deal in the Level 1 taught by Tom.

I have taken courses by excellent instructors like Pat M and Frank P.  Excellent instructors and courses. You learn from them for sure.  But they did not show me how to run that kind of rifle.

How about this,  if you have a specific question about something Tavor / X95 related ask and I will try to help you.  I could go on and on but I would prefer to help answer specifics.  I did an AAR on the Zahal course a few years ago, see if you can find that.  I give a specific pearl about how to operate the magazine release on the X95.  Similar to the AR but trying to push straight in can be an issue. Sort of swiping / dragging your finger over the release works better because it has a forward pivot point. When you look at the serrations and angle of the mag release you will see that this makes sense.  Just an example of a small point

I wouldn't say completely useless. A manual can explain/describe/show a technique. For example, how to change a magazine can be learned from a manual. Even some of the quirks of manipulating the bullpup platform or things specific to an X95 can be learned from a book.

This doesn't replace live instruction.

Just like a lot of quality practice can be done with dry practice, but live fire is still necessary to really hone those skills.
