Video—ARTV: IWI Part 2

posted on July 16, 2018
In Part 1 of IWI, American Rifleman TV looked at the Tavor and X95 bullpups from Israel Weapon Industries. Senior Executive Editor Brian Sheetz is back at IWI for part 2, and he heads to the range with the Uzi Pro pistol and the Galil ACE carbine, both of which are brought into the United States as semi-auto-only guns. Then he gets down behind the Negev belt-fed, light machine guns used by the Israeli Defense Force in both 5.56 mm and 7.62 mm. Check out this segment from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV to learn more about the guns from IWI.
