IWI – Israel Weapon Industries, is a leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for law enforcement agencies, governments, and armies around the world. The company will present its 7.62X51mm caliber IWI TAVOR-7, a member of the successful TAVOR Bullpup Rifle family, which was developed in close cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), based on lessons learned from actual combat situations.
The IWI TAVOR-7 enables users to operate in a wide variety of scenarios at short and medium range with enhanced firepower – efficiently, safely and easily, with minimal maintenance.
The TAVOR-7 is a fully ambidextrous platform on which the ejection side and the charging handle can be switched quickly and easily from side to side by the user. The ambidextrous features include: safety lever, magazine release, and bolt catch similar to the X95. The IWI TAVOR-7 also includes an M-LOK fore-end (at 3 and 9 o’clock) as well as MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny rail at the 6 o’clock position, to allow the use of multiple devices and accessories. The rifle’s body is built from high-strength, impact-modified polymer, and has a hammer-forged, chrome-lined, free-floating barrel for enhanced accuracy and life cycle.
Additional features include a short stroke gas piston with a 4-position variable gas regulator, (including an OFF position – a unique feature designed for special operation needs), a rotating bolt system that ensures maximum safety for the user, and a pistol grip that can be changed or modified. The IWI TAVOR 7 enables 100% interchangeability, reducing maintenance costs. It is available in four colors: Gray, OD Green, Black, and Flat Dark Earth, with replaceable barrels available in three lengths – 16.5” (419mm), 17″ (432 mm) and 20″ (508 mm) and a weight (without a magazine) of 4.4-4.5 Kg, defends of configuration.
Meprolight (1990) Ltd. – a leading manufacturer of optical & electro-optical systems, thermal and night vision equipment, and self-illuminated sights for military, law enforcement and civilian applications will introduce its recently launched MEPRO O2 sight.
The MEPRO O2 is light weight (approx. 280g), and includes a built-in light sensor and automatic brightness control system that enables clear visibility of the reticle in any lighting conditions – a significant advantage for easy and efficient target acquisition.
The MEPRO O2 sight features non-reflective optics without light signature toward the target, for enhanced force protection; a combination of an integral motion sensor and configurable sleep time of 4-8 hours, for power saving and extended operation; a new, improved, rugged MIL-SPEC mounting design and a protected three-button control keypad.
The sight shall shortly be offered with a 5-segment reticle supporting multiple pre-set aiming patterns switchable at user-level; in addition to its existing advantages, the cutting-edge multi-pattern MEPRO O2 version will support all tactical scenarios and allow the user to seamlessly transition between reticle configurations suitable for variable ammunition types such as 5.56, 300BLK subsonic, or 300BLK supersonic, as the mission requires.
Camero-Tech, a world leader and pioneer in developing, manufacturing and marketing of pulsed-based UWB micro-power radar ‘Through Wall Imaging’ systems will introduce for the first time its groundbreaking Xaver™ Long Range 80 system – a portable, high-performance ISR through-wall imaging system, offering forces maximum protection in the field.
