Pennsylvania-based IWI U.S. continues to expand its new ZION series of AR-15s with a 12.5-inch mid-length Tactical Pistol.
The Z15TAC12 model doubles down on the company’s new 5.56 NATO AR platforms which were only introduced earlier this year and are fully manufactured at the new IWI US facility in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Direct gas impingement with an 11.5-inch free float handguard, adjustable SB Tactical SBA3 stabilizing brace, and a B5 Systems grip, the pistol weighs 6.5-pounds.
The first M4-style rifle from IWI US, the ZION 15 was developed as an anchor of sorts for the company to ensure their products will be available here in the states should future restrictions shut the door to imported guns of certain types.
