PLEASE NOTE:  The AR-15 Height top rail is cut to work with all calibers of Tavor X95.


The X95 Cantilever Forend offers a wealth of features at an incredible price.  To solve some of the inherent issues of how to securely mount a forend to the X95 without contacting the barrel we had to think outside the box, and the solution was a two part system.


The first component consists of a 39 slot picatinny top rail and cover plate assembly that is raised to the proper height to work with standard AR-15 iron sights and optics (i.e. most all sighting components on the market these days). In addition the top rail is cut for the 300 blackout gas adjustment access in case you are mounting on a 300 Blackout X95.


The second component is the forend itself which is 2″ longer than the OEM forend, features 3 rows of M-LOK (13 slots) on each side plus 2 QD points on each side,  and  5 slots of M-LOK on the underside.  The center row of M-LOK on the sides and the underside row on M-LOK is centered on the bore line making it much easier to zero lasers and other items that are bore line sensitive.   The top of the forend features two L-shaped tabs that engage matching slots on the top rail.  To install the forend portion just slide the forend into the slots on the top rail along the axis of the barrel, make sure the alignment tab on the underside engages the opening in the receiver,  tighten the cross bolt screw and you are ready to go with a rock solid mounted forend.  This along-the-bore-axis installation allows the additional benefit of being able to install a suppressor up to 1.5″ in diameter on the barrel and the forend can easily be slid on and off without need to remove the suppressor.


Not wanting to leave an opening where the lower plastic tab of the OEM forend engages, we have included a polymer filler block that blends perfectly with the receiver to keep everything closed up and tidy. The forend and top rail are connected via a tongue and groove rail system and are secured together with screws for stable mounting and no movement.


One last benefit- with X95 Cantilever forend THE BARREL IS NOW FREE FLOATED.  No more contact of the barrel as with the OEM polymer forend and its two barrel mounted polymer support points, as the X95 Cantilever Forend is completely supported by the top rail and the receiver.


Total weight of the system is 1 lb 7.4 ounces compared to the OEM 1 lb 2.5 ounces.  Only 3.9 ounces more than the OEM forend at a gain of all aluminum construction, the ability to sleeve a suppressor, a longer and higher and more useful top rail, and almost 2″ of additional forend with a slimmer profile plus M-LOK compatibility and integral QD points.  Not a bad deal for 3.9 extra ounces, is it?


The X95 Cantilever Forend  is Patent Pending, and manufactured of 6061 black milspec hardcoated aluminum (plus a polymer filler block) 100% right here in the USA.

    I’m glad I bought this. It was easy to install and it’s much easier to look through the rifle’s optic now.

    This product was easy to install and I found that it improved both optic height and ergonomics. It added much-needed MLOK real estate for accessory mounting on the sides and bottom, permitting me to install my weapon light, laser aiming device, optic, barricade stop, and a waterproof storage case for coin-cell batteries. Additional spare MLOK space was available for comfortably mounting a TAPS switch in a comfortable position and some G10 grip panels.

    I wanted to post a review if the X95 Cantilever. The fit and finish of the product is second to none. Manticore makes great products and has awesome customer service. I personally want to say thank you to Sven for going above and beyond in helping me with answering my questions and also providing extra screws that I had a bit break off into. Thank you again Sven and Manticore for running a top notch business!!

    Assembly was easy enough but sadly now my rifle moves and creaks like an old wooden door because the bottom of the barrel shroud is not connected to anything it is simply wedged into place with a plastic fitting that does not work so it shakes and creaks.. For the price I really expected a lot more. This is a very simple flaw that could have been very easily fixed.. but hey if you like noisy barrel shrouds that crack snapple and pop while moving around this is the barrel shroud for you… I feel ripped off.
