SILVER SHADOW® Advanced Security Systems Ltd is an authorized exporter of the Israel Ministry of Defense (IMOD), and authorized Israeli weapon manufacturer. The company’s experience is significantly broader than the production of high quality firearms. It is also heavily involved in areas of Counter-Terror, Intelligence and Homeland Security. I became aware of the company through a casual meeting with a member of IMOD at a SOFIC Conference some years back. I was immediately impressed with the company’s depth and breath.
Israelis, at least those I’ve developed a relationship with, are unquestionably the most pragmatic folks you can encounter. One can easily see that in their arms industry. Their philosophy is centric to the precept that “if it’s not broken don’t fix it and why reinvent the wheel” – a concept evident in their highly successful TIMNA™ Sniper Weapon System (SWS). Start with a proven design, Kalashnikov AKM, fine tune it, and deliver a weapon system that is ideally suited for urban sniper-counter-sniper, and security missions.
The TIMNA™ is a 7.62×51 gas piston design equipped with 8 Picatinny rails. The magazine system borrows from the M14’s 20 round magazine. Finally, the entire enchilada is integrated with a functionally ergonomic sniper stock system that enhances shooter comfort and performance. Voila!

Whats the range?MOA?
Mitch, Silver Shadow does not publish performance criteria because there are so many variables that influence that. Things like ammunition temperature and so forth. I’ll give you my opinion. Effective range 600 to 800 meters. The TINMA is designed for urban use. Accuracy, on a good day 1 MOA on average 1.5 to 2 MOA. Reliability, probably 100%. It’s not designed to embarrass the M24, AI, SAKO TRG or M110 SASS which will shoot .5 MOA consistently using M118LR.
