Superior Ergonomics for Polymer-Framed Handgun
At LAAD 2017 in Rio de Janeiro this week, Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) is presenting for the first time its latest enhancements for the JERICHO polymer-framed pistol family, delivering superior ergonomics.
The standard pistol of the Israeli Police, the JERICHO family provides high performance and dependability. It is available in full-size, medium, and compact models, with either steel or polymer frames, and slide or frame-mounted safety. Main features include a very reliable mechanism, integral lower Picatinny rail, round chamber indicator, single or traditional double action, and last round catch; the weapon is available in three calibres (9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP).
Modifications include the addition of three backstrap sizes – enabling adjustment according to palm size, the absence of finger grooves – allowing a more comfortable grip, and a rough grip texture – improving the pistol’s grip. The new model is available in both full and medium size, and in three colours – black, green and FDE.
“Following the JERICHO pistol family’s many years of success among police forces, law enforcement agencies, and military entities – in Israel and around the world – we decided to keep the renowned and exceptionally reliable mechanism unchanged, while implementing modifications to the polymer-frame JERICHO pistol in order to achieve outstanding ergonomics,” Shlomi Sabag, the company’s new CEO, stated. “This new generation pistol is specially designed according to the standards and needs of the modern user.”
Having recently shot the new JERICHO, Monch can only approve.
