Suppressor suggestions for a Tavor X95

Hello all,

I have a MD compliant X95 and it has to keep that 29" OAL...so instead of having a silly muzzle brake, I am thinking about getting the barrel chopped and having a suppressor permanently mounted to it. The question is...what suppressor would work well for the X95? Should I get a .30 cal can to make sure it doesn't overpressurize? Or is that usually not a problem on the platform?

Thanks

AAC 762-SDN-6 is a really good 30 cal can. It has a 51T ratchet muzzle break. Sure you could get that welded on but would be a waste of a 30 cal can you could mount on other guns. Thing is if you permanently mount an suppressor and you damage it (i.e. baffle strike) then you have to send the entire gun and can to the manufacturer to get it fixed. Just some food for thought.

But it us a good sturdy reliable can.

Permanently mounting a can on it is a $$ way to go. How long is it if you were to permanently mount the QD mount on it for can X? That may get you to the required length, not look as silly at other options, and save you the can price. Also, if you ever go to sell it unless someone wants to pay for the can and tax stamp its a hard sell.

I know the Silencerco adapter adds a bit over 1.5in to the length for instance so gets a 14.5in AR barrel to legal if pinned correctly.

Permanently mounting a QD doesn't really change the length. The point of this would be to make the muzzle device a suppressor so that I can still hit 29" with it being suppressed. A QD means that the QD would be 29" and then the suppressor adds to that. I'm not worried about selling it. Losing it for a time for repairs is something I'm prepared to do.

I have to jump in completely and I want to make sure that, if I do it, I won't have problems cycling with a particular can. So I was hoping there were some Tavor owners that have it suppressed and know what works well.

I believe Griffin Armament and Thunder Beast both have budget friendly cans that are designed to be pinned, and can be disassembled from the front for repairs and cleaning. The Griffin can (GP5) is much lighter at 13oz but is likely going to have significant back pressure on a rifle that is known to gas people out with suppressed use. The Thunder Beast Takedown 5.56 was designed for the USSOCOM SURG competition and is supposedly pretty low on back pressure on an AR. Of the two I would be inclined to pick the Thunder Beast, but that thing is heavy. It's like 27 ounces, which is double the weight of the Griffin Can. So I guess pick your poison, but those two are probably the closest to what you're looking for. Both are about $500 + stamp and transfer fees if your local doesn't have them. I believe Silencershop stocks the Griffin can. Not sure about the TBAC can. Maybe contact both manufacters and see if they have done any testing on the tavors?

Getting the X95 platform to 29" OAL with a QD muzzle device would be de facto impossible. OP has the right idea here.

HOWEVER, to do this right, I would advise you to wait for the X95 SBR to be released. When combined with the non-NFA (extended) X95 buttpad and a perma-mounted suppressor, you should be able to hit 29" on a single stamp. If you perma-mount a suppressor to it, you will only need a single stamp (albeit your FFL will need to hold on to the X95 SBR, and then have it removed from the NFA registry when your suppressor stamp comes through and it gets perma-pinned).

The exact can doesn't matter much. For any extended shooting, you will need to have some kind of mitigation in place for gas blowback, which is severe on the Tavor and X95 guns.

You are going to have lots of gas blowback in that platform with a can.

If you do this use a .308 can to mitigate the blowback.

How about a permanent shroud like the tacsol barrels?
I'm looking at doing that to a couple of mine. A can like my sdn762 isn't ideal here because you have to be able to screw it on/off.

That's a good idea for this subject.

If a barrel with a shroud is available for the tavor, that seems like a good option.
