Harrisburg, Pa. (January 2016) –IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., and producers of the 2014 American Rifleman “Rifle of the Year” TAVOR SAR, are now expanding their manufacturing capabilities by producing cold-hammer forged barrels for themselves and OEM customers in the United States. The IWI US barrel producing facility is using brand new GFM cold hammer forging machinery producing barrels with tighter tolerances than many currently on the market today. Barrel blanks are precision machined, drilled and honed to exacting standards on state-of-the-art deep hole drilling and honing machines. Having the benefit of IWI Israel’s over 50 years’ experience in manufacturing precision MIL-SPEC barrels, IWI US is already lined up to start producing AR-15 and M4 barrels for several leading US firearms manufacturers.
“Barrel manufacturing is a key element of our long term strategy to have the capability to manufacture key components of our firearms in the United States.” Michael Kassnar, VP of Sales and Marketing at IWI US commented. “The combination of IWI’s experience with the latest manufacturing technology will allow us to produce the finest cold hammer forged barrels available.”
