IWI had one of the more exciting tents at Range Day, and some great products to check out as well. Of course, fully-accessorized Tavors were on display, but as to the new offerings from IWI, it was perhaps the Galil ACE SBR that was the most high profile. Several configurations were on display, and Alex Capps put a mag downrange with the ACE, which earned his approval.
Also new from IWI will be the UZI Pro’s introduction to the US. While its factory standard pistol configuration might not be ideal, IWI has plans to introduce a model that will accept AR stocks, but that may change in view of the ATF’s recent treatment of the SIG Brace. Also, some readers may recall that IWI also announced the US UZI Pro last year, but for whatever reason, it did not make it into US production in 2014.
Further, IWI showed the Jericho pistol models it planned to re-introduce to the states; the Jericho in metal and polymer framed versions. I had a chance to shoot the polymer framed version, and it was excellent in my brief range session. The ergonomics were surprisingly good, and the polymer frame drastically reduced the weight from the standard, traditional all-metal Jericho.
