Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) has finally released the Masada pistol in North America and the industry buzz is lit!
The Masada is a striker-fired 9mm pistol featuring a low-profile barrel, fully ambidextrous controls, and enhanced ergonomics which make it perfect for civilian, law enforcement, and military markets.
Equipped with a 4.1-inch cold-hammer-forged barrel with a 1-in-10-inch right-hand twist, the Madada has an overall length of 7.4 inches and weighs in at 23-ounces with a 10- or 17-round magazine (depending on state restrictions). Height and width, all-important for those seeking to conceal a handgun, is 5.6- and 1.34-inches, respectively.
James Reeves, with The Firearm Blog, recently found a Masada in the wild and gave it a pretty extensive review, calling it a “Glock 17 for those who don’t want a Glock 17,” noting the similarity in specs between the two duty-sized handguns.
Keep It Holstered:
We are glad to announce we already have holsters available for the IWI Masada including the following:

What do You Think?
Are you looking forward to running a few hundred or even thousand rounds through the new IWI Masada pistol?
