Pennsylvania-based IWI U.S. continues to expand its new ZION series of AR-15s with a 12.5-inch mid-length Tactical Pistol.
The Z15TAC12 model doubles down on the company's new 5.56 NATO AR platforms which were only introduced earlier this year and are fully manufactured at the new IWI US facility in Middletown, Pennsylvania. Direct gas impingement with an 11.5-inch free float handguard, adjustable SB Tactical SBA3 stabilizing brace, and a B5 Systems grip, the pistol weighs 6.5-pounds.
Available in any color desired as long as its black, the pistol has an MSRP of $899 and includes one 30-round Magpul PMAG.
The first M4-style rifle from IWI US, the ZION 15 was developed as an anchor of sorts for the company to ensure their products will be available here in the states should future restrictions shut the door to imported guns of certain types.
“IWI/SK Group has invested a significant amount of time and money into this process in order to have a long-standing business venture in the United States and to continue to serve the American public with high-quality firearms well into the future,” said Jeremy Gresham, Director of Sales and Marketing of IWI US in a previous statement. “The ZION 15 and the manufacturing equipment it brings, fully establishes IWI US roots here in the United States.”
