Tavor Exceeds Expectations
When the Tavor entered the US market, Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) hoped to sell 6,000 rifles in the first year. They’ve done that and much more: 15,000 rifles in only the first nine months.
IsraelDefense.com takes a look at the Tavor’s success in the United States and interviews Uri Amit, CEO of IWI, and Shlomi Sabag, deputy CEO and President of the US subsidiary. The article touches on how IWI has expanded its commercial sales and other markets where the Tavor is making an entry.
The SIG SAUER X-Five series of handguns are now being sold in the US. The guns are competition guns that are a bit more expensive than the regular SIG offerings.
The guns being sold are the:
- XFIVE ALL AROUND, MSRP $2,245
- XFIVE CLASSIC, MSRP $2,679
- XFIVE ENTRY, MSRP $1,762
- XFIVE MATCH, MSRP $2,728
- XFIVE MATCH SHORT, MSRP $2,800
- XFIVE OPEN, MSRP $4,852
The Firearm Blog previously discussed the European introduction of the X-series here.
FN Herstal Buys Wooden FN SCAR Replica From UK Artist
Earlier this year Jenni Edwards, a UK artist, emailed me asking if I could feature her art on TFB. She had discovered it has not possible to sell her creations in the United Kingdom due to laws prohibiting the sale of replica guns. The post I wrote was very popular and attracted 76 comments.
Jenni just let me know that FN Herstal (Belgium) has purchased two of her guns. They will be exhibiting them during their 125 year anniversary celebrations. Jenni did not specify which guns they purchased, but I assume the FN SCAR (photo above and below) was one of them.
It is great to see a major gun company supporting decent gun artwork. We are all tired of gun art (as opposed to guns that are art) which is mostly limited to artists melting down AK rifles and turning them into park benches, or putting mutilated gun sculptures outside prominent buildings around the world.
Congratulations to Jenni. She has a number of different replica guns on sale at her Etsy store page.
