IWI US, Inc. began operations in 2013 and brought the first commercial versions of the Tavor SAR to the US market. The Tavor achieved immediate success, winning the prestigious 2014 “Rifle of the Year” Golden Bullseye award from NRA Publication’s American Rifleman Magazine. Three short years later, NRA’s newest Official Journal, Shooting Illustrated Magazine, with a focus on concealed carry, self-defense and tactical shooting, chose the next-generation Tavor X95 as its 2017 “Rifle of the Year” Golden Bullseye award recipient. IWI US was also honored two years in a row by the National Association of Sporting Goods Wholesalers (NASGW) as winner of the 2014 and 2015 Importer of the Year awards.
IWI US’s Law Enforcement Division was launched in 2014 and saw the adoption of the Tavor SAR and Tavor X95 in the first US LE agencies. 2016 brought the “next-generation” Tavor X95 bullpup to the US commercial market along with the legendary Galil ACE in 7.62x39mm and 7.62 NATO. IWI US is firmly committed to the United States commercial and LE firearms market within five short award-winning years.
