HISTORY



Detailing the development and operational history of the IWI Jericho 941 Semi-Automatic Pistol.  Entry last updated on 6/16/2018. Authored by Staff Writer. Content ©www.MilitaryFactory.com.
The Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) Jericho Model 941 is a no-frills, semi-automatic pistol design first introduced in 1990 and continuing production today (2013). It is based on the excellent Czech CZ-75 series with a few modifications to make it more in line with Israeli requirements. At its core, the weapon is a solid handgun utilizing a slide component, magazine grip and oversized trigger loop. It features a locked breech with a slide running along internal rails which add in inherent accuracy. The weapon comes in double- or single-action forms utilizing the short-recoil principle. Primary chambered for the popular 9x19mm Parabellum pistol cartridge, it has also been seen in forms chambered for the .40 S&W (Smith & Wesson), .41 Action Express (AE) and .45 ACP (Automatic Colt Pistol).

An ambidextrous safety catch is optional as is a butt safety lock and illuminated night sights. Regular sights are standard and either fixed or adjustable in nature. Accessory rails were added later which allowed use of tactical gear such as aimers and flashlights. Though depending on the selected chambering, the base Jericho 941 model utilizes a 15-round detachable box magazine. The larger the cartridge, the smaller the magazine count.

Beyond Israel police and security elements, the Jericho has seen issuance in Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Georgia, Greece, the Philippines, Romania and Serbia. Beyond the base full-sized frame, a semi-compact and compact body frame was also realized. Additionally, frames could be found in steel or polymer finishes.

Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) was formerly known as the Magen Division of Israeli Military Industries (IMI) before being privatized in 2005. The concern is based in Ramat HaSharon, Israel and primarily specializes in the design, development and production of firearms as well as training.
