Cougar_ml Posted July 13, 2018 Share Posted July 13, 2018 So I just paid for a suppressor, will hopefully get it by early next year. I already have a 308 bolt action, and an AR-15 in 5.56. I'm thinking that I want to get the Tavor X95 is 300 blackout to run suppressed sub sonic rounds. I know I can cheaply get a 300BO upper and throw it on the AR-15 I already have, but I would prefer to keep the weapons systems that can have potential issues apart. I don't want to risk a 300BO magazine being loaded in the 5.56 upper, as that is much bad juju. I'd also like to make it a more compact package, which means either going the AR15 pistol with brace route, or filing for a SBR tax stamp and waiting, which I would also not like to do. The solution I came up with is getting a tavor in 300 blackout, and running it with different magazines than I keep for the AR-15 (which is magpul gen 2) I'm still debating it, as I don't have a lot of money to throw around, but the bullpups have been on my mind for a few years now, and the X95 seems to have fixed a lot of the complaints that people had about the Tavor SAR. Looks like they can be found as low as $1600 for the 300BO version before shipping and transfer fees. As for reasons, first is because I kind of want one. Main purpose would be to play with, second would be hunting and probably leave it set up as my home defense gun. (can't hunt with less than .24 caliber for deer in my state) I would also be reloading for it, possibly casting my own bullets and doing powder coat. I know you can cast for 5.56 at higher velocities, but there seems to be a lot less science and magic involved if you are casting for lower velocity rounds. Down low on the list but still on my mind is that my state (Washington) keeps trying to go further and further liberal, and if I wait too long it might become difficult to purchase here in the future. Anyone here have any experience with the Tavor in 300BO and a suppressor? Or any tavor with a suppressor for how it feels and handles? There are a few yewtube videos out there that make it look like it should be a really good setup for running suppressed, but I trust you guys more than the guys in the videos.
