    Where the hell is the Galil Ace they were teasing?

    • John

      Probably won’t happen any time soon. The Tavor seems to be the rifle all the Americans want.

    • Looks like December on the ACE

    • Doom

      forget the ace, import or make in the US old school steel galils and UZI’s! and make a rail-less Jericho for those of us that want to get our bebop on.

  • They will stop importing it in a year or two, then a few years will go by, then it will come back again.
    This cycle will repeat until the end times.

    • MrEllis

      Or someone releases a Polymer Compact Ark of the Covenant.

    • Steve_7

      Yeah, I had a Jericho 941 back in 1993. As I recall back then IMI imported the frames and slides from Tanfoglio and only made the barrel themselves. It had the same crappy trigger pull as a low-end Tanfoglio so I had to work on that (the internals looked identical). Also the sights were a bit crude, the rear sight notch wasn’t in the right place. Anyway I got rid of it for various reasons, the slide-mounted safety (not that I dislike slide-mounted safeties but it felt really rough going from on to off), plus it was just too bulky, the frame is too heavy. The one thing that really annoyed me though was the magazine release, it worked, but it didn’t always engage properly when a magazine was inserted.

      No doubt I could have fixed it eventually but I just couldn’t be bothered.

      My gunsmith friend said it was designed to hit Palestinians over the head with, hence the bulky frame, lol. I think it had more to do with the shape of the Desert Eagle though.

  • C.

    I just wish the safety also functioned as a decocker.

    • As someone who owns a slide mounted safety/decocker version: I wish I had these US models

    • Tim U

      I am the opposite – I have the slide mounted decocker and want a condition one safety. No need for a decocker on a single action presentation

  • JoelC

    I’m very curious to hear how these compare to stock CZs if anyone has a lot of experience with both?

    • Dan Atwater

      The fit and finish on the new Jericho (NOT the MR baby eagles) is a bit better than the CZ, with fewer machining marks and a smoother feeling action. The sights out of the box are garbage (same for the CZ), the triggers are both mediocre as well but smooth out with use. The Jericho feels substantially heavier and somewhat bulkier than the CZ but also has noticeably less felt recoil and muzzle climb.

      Also my CZ 75 mags would NOT fit in the Jericho, which was surprising.

      • Steve_7

        So basically, not much different from my 1993 vintage example, lol.

  • guns of august

    j_w gun- no thanks

  • Cal.Bar

    Well, since they won’t be on the CA approved list (and no new pistol ever will) all 38 MILLION Californians will get to sit this one out.

    • Phil Hsueh

      I hope that stupid list gets repealed, and soon. It’s so sad to see all of these new pistols coming out knowing that not one of them will be available in CA.

      Btw, does list apply to used guns as well or just new? I’m looking to buy a 1911 before the end of the year since everything pretty much falls of the list in 2016. If I missed the cutoff date and didn’t get my 1911 by end of the year would I still be able to buy a second hand one?

      • 1911Junkie

        The list applies to all semi-auto and DA revolvers, used or new, as long as they are not C&R. But you can buy any gun that is already in CA, from the private party (if you are willing to pay twice as much as the same gun would cost you anywhere in US).
        As for me, I’m planning to make myself exempt from stupid CA laws by moving out of CA to US of A.

        • Phil Hsueh

          Thanks for the response. I guess that means I need to continue saving then, if not figure out ways of saving faster.

        • Rick5555

          Hey, Welcome to America! You’ll find our gun culture to be quiet pleasant. And a fun place to pursue your firearms hobby. Again, Welcome to America.

  • Will

    Does anyone make an AFFORDABLE, GOOD QUALITY, RELIABLE, semi auto pistol in 9 mm or 40 S&W caliber WITHOUT an accessory rail?
    I’m not a fan of hanging battery powered accouterments on a carry pistol plus it is difficult and uncomfortable to conceal one in an IWB holster.
    Until I find one I’ll stick with my LC-9.
    I know:
    WAH, WAH, WHINE, SNIFFLE, PISS AND MOAN!!!!

    • st4

      CZ75 D PCR Compact might fit your needs.

      • MrEllis

        I have one that looks like this…

    • James

      You just perfectly described the s&w shield.

    • nadnerbus

      I actually thought the same thing on this one. If I got a Jericho (which I can’t in California. It’s for my own safety don’t you know), I’d want it clean. I’m not fond of the pic rail on the bottom, it breaks up the clean lines.

    • MrEllis

      Meet RAMI. 9 or 40.

    • john huscio

      P320sc or p228

    • Marcos

      SAR B6P from EAA. CZ75 clone, cheap, dead reliable.

  • Dracon1201

    I’ve seen these on the shelf in my LGS for months.

  • mosinman

    all my yes.
    .45 Jericho here i come

  • imachinegunstuff

    Wait, did they put the safety back on the frame? I would buy one if this is the case

    • Tim U

      Yes, that’s exactly what they did. This one can be carried “cocked and locked” safely.

    • StickShift

      Magnum Research still offers the slide decocker variant as the Baby Eagle (which, incidentally, is also starting to ship an updated version to vendors).

      • imachinegunstuff

        thats a terrible idea. Why someone ever thought a slide safety was a good idea blows my mind

        • Dan Atwater

          You can probably blame Walther for that

          • imachinegunstuff

            True but the Walther PP series were placed in such a way you can access them via thumb without moving your hand, on a full sized pistol it’s dumb

      • Marcos

        The slide safety on my Baby Eagle II makes it so much easier to grasp and rack, more than the new model. I love mine and have never had a problem with it inadvertently engaging or disengaging. Magnum Research’s new model Baby Eagle III is made by Bul instead of IWI.

    • Marcos

      I just bought two. They looked great and had great reputations. Both have gritty triggers. One has magazine release that takes both thumbs and a ton of effort to release. Both magazine releases are out of reach of my thumb (I wear a 7&1/2 glove). Distributor in Pennsylvania effectively says “FU” by email. I’ll sell you mine!

  • BattleshipGrey

    TFB should get Spike Spiegel to do a review.

    • sam

      I like Jerichos. Clean lines, long rails, general military feel, that bump on the grip. Pleasant recoil character. That name you mention totally has nothing to do with it. No indeed.

    • nester7929

      No idea what that means. Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to blow this scene. I’ve got to get everybody and the stuff together.

    • Rock or Something

      Spike: “Bang.”

  • Phil White Oink Oink

    j_w gun-no thanks

  • Asdf

    A Jericho has a frame mounted safety. This is just a redressing of a CZ75

  • noob

    See you in space, Cowboy.

  • Anon

    You’re going to carry that weight….

  • MrEllis

    Neat pistols, for sure, just not neat enough for me to forsake my CZs.

  • Dukeblue91

    I’m a little confused by the naming scheme.
    Wasn’t the original Jericho 941 available in 9mm with a second barrel and spring for the 41AE?
    Why name it the same thing and not be the same?
    I could be wrong though.

  • The Brigadier

    I don’t know why you want to spend three times the cost of a Tanfoglio for this 9mm. I have seen Tanfoglio’s in the price range for $235 to $255 lately. Everything I could find says the Tanfoglio is a fine design and manufactured pistol worth at least double what they charge it for. This Jericho is almost as expensive as a Sig Sauer. Why? Because they have $30 worth of steel in the frame rather than $15 worth of polymer? Or maybe its just simple greed.

  • SD

    Meh.
