180 Second Ideas Names Jericho as Pistol of 2017 ~ VIDEO

YouTuber Johnny at 180 Second Ideas rates his faves and least faves of the past year with the IWI Jericho 941 F9 named Gun of the Year.

Harrisburg, Pa. (January 2018) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is pleased to share that the Jericho® 941 F9 full sized steel frame pistol took YouTube channel 180 Second Ideas’ prize for Gun of the Year 2017. Host Johnny touted the Jericho’s out-of-the box performance in spite of its heft.

“It’s too heavy to carry, too big to conceal, and I can’t get enough of it! The Jericho 941 F is my firearm of the year, with clean lines, nail-driving accuracy, and the crispest trigger in my arsenal.  Holy smokes what a gun,” Johnny Bragg, 180 Second Ideas YouTuber said.

“The Jericho pistol has been in the US for over 25-years and it is still winning converts,” Casey Flack, CEO of IWI US said. “The design in based on the CZ-75 short recoil system and the frame mounted safety that enables a cocked and locked carry with single action use or a hammer down, double-action function, demonstrate that quality design and construction go hand-in-hand, making the Jericho one of the world’s long-standing, popular pistol for sport shooters.”

The Jericho 941 F9 is available in 9mm on a full size and mid-size steel frame and a .45 mid-size steel frame.

Barrels are made of Mil-Spec CrMoV steel and cold hammer forged. An integral Picatinny style rail allows for the mounting of lights or lasers with adjustable sights. Available at a starting MSRP of $655.00, the Jericho 941 F9 is also available in a polymer version.

Message to IWI CEO: A great looking firearm, but….I cannot find one anyplace except online. How about expanding your dealer network? After 25 years of sales in the U.S. why is it absent every gun retailer I check? Thanks….
