NRA Gun of the Week: IWI Jericho 941 FS

posted on September 10, 2016

There is lot to be said for a full-size, hammer-fired pistol chambered for 9 mm Luger and built for harsh desert conditions. The Jericho 941 FS from IWI, a company based in Israel, is a steel gun with dovetailed battle sights and built upon the proven CZ75 design. The gun’s low bore axis minimizes muzzle rise and felt recoil and double-stack magazines allow for increased capacity of 9 mm Luger cartridges which serve well both when ringing steel on the range and in dynamic defense situations. Additionally, a frame-mounted safety and double-action trigger allows for “cocked and locked” carry.
