As we head into this holiday weekend, we have much to be thankful for this year. 2016 has been another successful year for us at IWI US with more and more products being shipped out the door every day. Another reason to be thankful this year? America exercised its #GunVote, and was heard! We can all breathe a little easier knowing that our Second Amendment rights will be protected and safeguarded under this new administration.
As we move past Veteran’s Day, celebrated earlier this month, we continue to be thankful and grateful to all those who have served and are currently serving, both here in the U.S. and in Israel as part of the IDF. We salute you all!
And to everyone else, we couldn’t be more thankful for your continued support. We've seen your photos, videos and comments and encourage you to keep tagging us and using #IWIUS in your posts. You may even end up in our newsletter!
So as you gather round the table this week, take a moment before digging into your turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes to give thanks to the things that have brought you joy this year. We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

THE LEGENDARY JERICHO®
In Israel, firearms aren’t seldom used safe queens, they’re tools that are used every day to save lives and protect freedom. They’re built to go bang every time you pull the trigger and reliably hit what you’re aiming at, because if they don’t, there are consequences.
In the 1990’s, Israel decided it was time for an Israeli-made pistol that would meet the standards of reliability and accuracy that its brave soldiers, law officers and security forces needed to defeat its modern-day adversaries. And so began the development of the Jericho®.
Too many times we miss opportunities to train ourselves even during seemingly administrative tasks. Proper repetitions in any skill breeds smoothness, efficiency and eventually speed. Whenever possible, we should always create an opportunity to execute another repetition. The simple task of loading your Jericho® pistol is another chance to execute an important skill set: the empty gun reload.
Normally, a shooter will simply insert the magazine, rack the slide and crack the slide to the rear to see if a round cycled out of the magazine. It is a quick way to administratively load the pistol. It gets the job done, but in doing so, we miss a chance to accomplish two tasks at the same time. We can perform this operation differently and work a critical manipulation while loading the pistol. Next time you load, try the following method.
We're pleased to announce the new Galil ACE® pistol (GAP39 II, 2nd Gen) and the Galil ACE® pistol with SB Tactical™ Stabilizing Brace™ (GAP39SB) in 7.62x39mm are now shipping!
Featuring a side-folding stabilizing brace produced specifically for IWI US by SB Tactical, the Galil ACE® SB provides a new level of control for a large-frame pistol. And with the brace’s ability to fold, the pistol can be fired with or without the brace extended and easily stored in safes, cases and packs. In all other respects, the Galil ACE® SB is identical to the GAP39 II (2nd Gen) pistol.
MSRP for the GAP39 II (2nd Gen) and GAP39SB pistols is $1,749 and $1,849, respectively.
