The Israelis have been busy
Last week was a big one for IWI. The Israeli gunmaker responsible for the UZI, Jericho and Galil introduced both their Masada line of 9mm polymer-framed striker-fired pistols and Tavor 7 AR bullpup rifle in 7.62×51mm NATO.
The 7 AR is slathered with an M-LOK fore-end and a removable Picatinny rail for accessories and optics, the rifle comes in two barrel lengths (17 and 20-inches) and four color patterns (Sniper Gray, OD Green, Black, and Flat Dark Earth) for a wide array of options. Overall length is listed at 28.4-inches, though it is not immediately clear which barrel length that is based on.
On the Masada, some 7.49-inches long in its full-size introductory model complete with a 4-inch barrel, the combat-style handgun tips the scales at 23-ounces unloaded. Features include an integral MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail for accessories, front and rear slide serrations and a cold hammer-forged polygonal rifled barrel.
