Not content to sit on their laurels and ride the success of the Tavor, IWI has collaborated again with the IDF to develop the .338 Lapua “DAN” Sniper Rifle. Incorporating the latest must-have features for a tactical precision weapon, the DAN is mounted to an fully adjustable chassis, including an uninterrupted rail on the top and bottom with customizable rail sections on each side.
The rifle features a heavy 1/10″ twist 29″ (31″ w/ muzzle brake) free-floated fluted barrel capped with a Q/D mount for optional suppressors. Despite the barrel, IWI focused on weight reduction. The rifle weights in at 6.9 kg (about 15 lbs) without without magazine, scope, and mount. The magazine had a 10 round capacity and can be released ambidextrously.
The stock is adjustable for length-of-pull and comb. It includes an adjustable monopod and is capable of folding. Folded, the rifle is just over a meter long. Unfolded it rings in about 1.3 meters (~51″).
IWI claims sub-MOA accuracy out to 1200 meters. The trigger is stated to be two-stage and is adjustable between 1 and 2 kgs (2.2 – 4.4 lbs). IWI will offer a purpose-built suppressor and clip-on sight as optional accessories.
