Located in the center of Israel, Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) has been a world leader in combat proven small arms for the past 80 years.
IWI’s products are considered weapons of choice by military units and top law enforcement agencies around the world, and with good reason.
These weapons’ final configurations are the product of ongoing interaction, field tests, and modifications, resulting from combat requirements and experience. The result is a weapon that is in compliance with the most stringent military standards.
The well-known GALIL Assault Rifle family recently welcomed the addition of the robust GALIL ACE family, which includes the GALIL Ace pistol. What’s more, IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries, announced last month that the IWI US GALIL ACE pistol would be introduced to the American market with shipping beginning in February 2015.
This is the first descendant of the world famous GALIL rifle to come to the US since 1993.
