The X95 is modular, allowing caliber conversions - a big plus. The rails easily allow a user to attach accessories. It also runs on AR-15 style magazines. The trigger was mushy.

The ability to run AR-15-style magazines in the Tavor bullpup makes the bullpup more practical.
The magazine release and selector lever are set up similar to an AR-15’s. The charging handle is close, yet still allows easy manipulation.
Peel back removable covers on the forearm to find Picatinny rails at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock.
The IWI uses a standard A2-style birdcage muzzle device.
The Metro red dot was a good pairing with the IWI because it allows the operator to keep both eyes open when aiming.
The X95 has backup iron sights that are inset in the top rail and fold up when needed. They could be co-witnessed with the Metro RDS red dot. The sights worked, but we thought they could be easily damaged in the event the IWI was dropped.
