I traded off my m1a for this beauty, it's the Tavor x95. 16 inch barrel chambered in 556. Should fit the bill perfectly for walking through the woods. Any thoughts?

Viking Tactics two point sling.
1-4X, 1-6X, or 1-8X scope.
Find some heavy hunting bullets it shoots well.
Get a 10 round mag. They're short, don't get in the way like a 30 round, and you probably won't need all ten rounds anyway. Unless you're lucky enough to get a sounder of hogs pinned down in the bottom of a creek bed.

Good advice.

As much as I have always loved my Viking Tactical slings, I have discovered Magpul makes one very similar and works better in my opinion.

I like this one form Magpul. It allows a quick conversion from 2-Point to 1-Point (if you fancy a 1-Point sling, I donít) but what I like about this over the V-Tac is the adjustment. Itís a large slider that you grab and move, either way will loosen or tighten it. The V-Tac, while still a fantastic sling, you have to grab a 3 inch long piece strap, not the easiest to do with gloves/cold hands/in a hurry.

Just my 2cents

I think that little beast screams for a good reflex or prismatic sight or something along those lines, but that's based on what I think of when you say "walking through the woods."

I have a 3X prism scope on my STG-556. Makes a light compact rifle. I have a bad astigmatism so I can't use red dots or reflex sights.

I thought the pic uploaded in the first post. I plan on getting the magpull sling, cabelas has them in the bargain cave for 42 bucks. I have a vortex red dot and a 3x magnifier on a swing mount. It's a cool little rifle. Ill keep trying to upload my pics, here's a downloaded image

Shoot these bullets and you will have as much killing power as possible from that cartridge.

What's the trigger like? Last one I tried in a bullpup was long and terrible.

The trigger in the x95 isn't bad, it has been improved from the original sar version it does have a little travel but, a crisp break. The sear is easily removed and there's plenty of upgrades available. Very quick and easy follow up shots

Being from Brazoria county myself, I can see where this would be a very handy little rifle to carry!

If you're not gonna add a silencer, consider a linear comp from Kaw Valley, your ears will thank you, especially from a bull-pup.
