IWI, AN AR 15 Challenger?

With the piston design, does the weapon not run much cleaner? Doesn’t a cleaner weapon run longer?

Its apples to oranges. Yes ,it does run cleaner though. Theres huge arguements over this stuff and really in the context of the AR its pretty much apples to oranges. The DI has its own merits

Heres one of the top tactical instructors take on DI. He does a much better job at explaining what i am talking about. I might start a seperate thread on this though and we can discuss it there further. Either way, the x95 is an impressive underated rifle, imo.

Have you tried getting a Desert Tech MDR or whatever its called? That would be more of an interesting comparison to X95.

I notice a huge difference between one of my AR’s and my Tavor after firing a few mags through. The internals on my ar15 looks like a chimney that hasn’t been cleaned, ever. The Tavor almost appears unfired.

The Tavor 7 is a .308

The AR does get dirty but as long as theres lube itll run. Basic wipe downs of the bcg also only take a few seconds.

Heres one that went well over 30k with only 1 or 2 cleanings , just lube.

You can run an AR dirty if wet , itll choke if dry. Pistons take way less lube.

I went about 7k with no cleaning in mine and it was a little sludgy but with lube it
Kept going. Thats through classes, plinking , etc.

Yea, i havnt even seen one before lol, looks neat …kind of, im not really into .308 semi autos though.
I was curious if youve ever looked at an MDR and compared it to a Tavor?

I’m not doubting your information. Please don’t mistake my conversing and questions as such. I’m always trying to learn more.

I like the look of the desert tech, but I don’t know shit about them. Other than the fact that I want one.

Im not pissed, actually the opposite, i was trying to deter a pissing match. My bad for coming off that way.

I didn’t think you were pissed. Lol, I was reading back through this thread & thought I may have come across as argumentative (unintentionally). But now that I’ve thought about it, Lonewolf is perfect & never wrong so that’s impossible :joy:

I have a desert Tech MDR in 308 and fricken love it. LOVE it. I run it suppressed even with steel case ammo. They were hard to get for a while.
They are easier to clean than a TAVOR or the X95 and I do own both. The TAVOR or X95 is better and easier to clean and maintain than the AUG
To me, the X95 is better than the TAVOR… the “medium” stroke piston is very well thought out and I like them so much I picked up a SBR
