Israel is a nation that lives the dramatic feeling of being in constant pre-alarm and, despite having a relatively short life, only 63 years after the birth of the State, has the dubious distinction of numerous attacks by its warlike neighbors.
Therefore, the military needs and gunner have always been vital to this ancient and new strip of land, the center of three great religions, to the extent that defense spending is the highest in the world. His most famous industry, IMI (Israeli Military Industries), now IWI (Israeli Weapon Industries) has generated flower of firearms from massive Tavor Galil to the system but also going for “failure of success” such as’ now famous huge Desert Eagle pistol, rejected for military and police but very welcome to the civilian market.
In contrast to this “Goliath”, the aforementioned industry has given birth to a subsequent short weapon called Jericho 941 and also known become as “Baby Eagle” which, in turn, has become a real line with numerous variations.
Characterized by small size and borrowed from some models of the Czech CZ and the very Italian Tanfoglio, boasts the ability to shoot two different calibers and that the dynamic 9 x 19 mm (9 mm) and a powerful .40 S & W. Loved by the Israeli security services, which have replaced the glorious but exceeded Beretta cal. 22 known as the Model 71, the Jericho 941 allows a quick pull and instinctive thanks also to the configuration of the ‘grip and to the natural position of the hand on it. Suitable for both operators dextroses left handed, double-action weapon can be easily hidden thanks to the not exaggerated dimensions and low weight.
The shot is fluid, not too violent for the 9 mm rounds while it becomes much more challenging when dealing with the cal. 40. Its latest version polymer, complete with a slide front accessories for tactical flashlight or laser sight, is the best we can expect from this series, as few handguns in the world, is really “Born in Battle”.
