Forged in the heat of battle by a country of people who only wanted peace and stability…but instead were relentlessly attacked by aggressors throughout their storied history - this was the crucible in which a proud small arms company was born. For the past 70 years, Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd has honed its craft and has become a World leader, in the manufacture and production of unrivalled and consistently reliable small arms. All these firearms are combat-proven and are the weapons of choice by top military units and law enforcement agencies throughout the world.
The company’s firearms are developed in close collaboration with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). IWI and IDF have established joint Research & Development teams to develop these products, whose final configurations are the product of on-going interaction, real-world field tests, and modifications resulting from combat requirements. The intensive and constant use of IWI's products by IDF and its worldwide customers enables the company to design its products to provide unrivalled reliability and expert-level situational functionality by consistently testing, optimizing, and innovating. All of our weapons systems are in compliance with the most stringent military (MIL-STD) and ISO 9000:2008 standards.
With the formation and launch of IWI US, Inc. – civilian commercial versions of these world famous firearms will now be available for sale and support in the USA! This commitment to the USA firearms consumers, dealers, and distributors, begins with opening of our USA corporate headquarters housing: administration, marketing & sales, manufacturing production, live-fire functional and accuracy testing, quality control, mail-in product repair & service, and customer support services via live phone support. IWI US, Inc. will begin shipping orders for the TAVOR® Modern Sporting Rifle family and the World-famous UZI® Pro Pistol in early 2013.
