(TACCOM 2019) IWI Jericho II 9mm SA/DA Pistol
At TACCOM Show in Toronto, Canada this past weekend, IWI showcased the upcoming Jericho II 9mm pistol. This is an update to the Jericho 941 PL which is the polymer frame variant of the 941 series of pistols. It features a redesigned slide with aggressive front and rear serrations.
It has a frame safety (not a decocker, although that might be available later on) similar to a 1911 and the front rail is now MIL-STD-1913 compatible. The grip has been optimized, offering improved texture and removing finger grooves from the previous version and it now features removable backstraps. The barrel length remains the same at 112mm (4.4″) as this is considered a full-size pistol.
This is the description from the IWI Canada brochure.
