IWI’s New MASADA Pistol Takes No Prisoners

If it’s good enough for the IDF, it’s good enough for me.

The story of the Siege of Masada has echoed through the generations for the last two millennia as an example of self-sacrificing bravery…so only Israeli Weapons Industries (IWI) could be the group to bring us a pistol bearing that name: the MASADA 9mm. This polymer framed striker-fired pistol was developed in order to provide an advanced solution to the modern battlefield requirements of a fighting force that has zero room for mistakes.

The MASADA takes user preferences to a new level, with each feature carefully selected based on input from military personnel, law enforcement officials, and gun enthusiasts alike. To begin, its hardiness: The frame is made of high-strength, impact-resistant fiberglass-reinforced polymers. Like all IWI firearms, it is built to withstand and endure all types of military use and abuse in extremely harsh environmental conditions.

Then there’s the trigger. Long the weak link in the ergonomic relationship between gun and shooter, the MASADA’s trigger breaks the mold of “factory” triggers. The MASADA utilizes a modular, serialized, high-grade steel trigger mechanism housing that can be easily removed, allowing simple and easy disassembly and maintenance. The trigger was designed to enhance the shooter’s accuracy and safety. The MASADA trigger has an average pull of 6 pounds with a clean, crisp break and a positive reset. Featuring a built-in trigger safety, the pistol will not fire unless the trigger is pulled.

Ergonomically designed with fully ambidextrous controls and three interchangeable back-straps, the MASADA pistol fits a wide variety of hand sizes. The MASADA was designed with a low bore axis for reduced perceived felt recoil. Overall, The MASADA was engineered to endure all elements while maintaining IWI legendary attention to detail and reliability.

The MASADA is out-of-the-box OPTICS READY and includes interchangeable mounting plates for the Trijicon RMR, Leupold Delta Point, Sig Sauer Romeo 01, and Vortex Venom. The MASADA has an MSRP of $480.00. Additional information can be found at the IWI US website, here: https://iwi.us/product/m9orp17/
