Jericho Pistols Coming Back to the United States

Yes, the Jericho, also known as the, ‘Baby Eagle' (kid brother to the Desert Eagle) is now heading back to the United States. Previously imported by Magnum Research, IWI US  (the American arm of Israel Weapons Industries (IWI)) is bringing them back in the beginning of the year. Think it looks like a CZ-75? There's a reason, as the Jericho is based on it. This model features an accessory rail, a polymer body (the horror!), and will be available in a variety of calibers.

Lots of people are getting excited about this one.

“Ever since the Jericho was launched in 1990 by – IMI, it has been a very popular pistol for civilians and law enforcement, worldwide,” Michael Kassnar, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for IWI US explained. “Since it was originally designed based upon the highly regarded CZ-75 model, the Jericho has been imported into the U.S. under several names including Jericho 941 from KBI when first introduced, UZI Eagle from Mossberg and Magnum Research’s Baby Eagle. We are very pleased that the Jericho 941 has come full circle and arrived home here at IWI US.” The Jericho 941 steel frame, semi-auto, short-recoil model will be available in full-size and semicompact in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP caliber. The pistol features adjustable sights, an integral MILSTD 1913 rail, an ergonomic grooved pistol grip and ships with 2 magazines in a lockable carry case.

The Jericho 941 polymer frame with steel slide, semi-auto, short recoil model is also available in 9mm, .40 S&W and .45 ACP calibers in a full-size and semi-compact frame. All features are the same in the polymer version with the benefit of reduced weight. Unlike the Baby Eagle, UZI Eagle and earlier versions of the Jericho 941 imported by KBI that had a slide mounted de-cocker system, this new Jericho 941 utilizes the more desirable frame mounted safety, a la CZ75.
