I want to start by saying I like both a lot. Personally I like the original Tavor more but maybe its because I have shot it more. I like where the Charging Handle and the mag release is on the Tavor. As you see my reasons are subjective why I chose the Tavor but I feel if I just shoot the X95 more I would grow to like it as much. You have to ask if you like the Tavor to have it’s controls to be in a more AR like position. I say “AR like” because the mag release won’t exactly be where an ARs mag release is but its close, so it will still feel a little different than an AR.
The fact is both have run 100 percent for me making it a pure pleasure to shoot either. X95 is a very good bullpup but I don’t think it is a better bullpup than the original Tavor, it has a more AR like mag release control and the factory trigger is better than the original trigger on the Tavor. I have replaced both with Geiselle trigger packs.
Can’t go wrong with either one in my opinion.
