  • a large trigger guard to accommodate gloves;
  • a modular, serialized, steel trigger mechanism housing you can easily remove;
  • a 5.5–7 lb. trigger pull;
  • a trigger bar safety;
  • front and rear cocking serrations on the slide;
  • an external extractor integrated with a tactile and visual loaded chamber indicator;
  • an integral MIL-STD 1913 picatinny rail;
  • fixed combat-style three-dot sights (tritium night sights are optional); and
  • 17-round black magazines with a visible round count.

IWI says it will offer the Masada in three frame colors: black, OD green and flat dark earth. It says you can disassemble the pistol without pulling the trigger.

  1. Ordered Masada now searching for lighter trigger in 2lb range. Unable to locate and reduced weight springs but will keep looking. Maybe gunsmith can reduce pull weight from 5 to 2 lbs.
