IWI Masada Review by sootch00

From the creators of the legendary UZI, IWI brings us a full-size striker-fired pistol, the IWI Masada. Sootch00 got his hands on one and gives us his usual thorough review. He puts a little over 500 rounds through the pistol with zero malfunctions whatsoever. Not a bad start.

And what makes this pistol different from the rest of the full-size striker-fired pistols on the market? Well, what stands out to me is that it comes in an optics-ready package for roughly $100 less than a Glock 17/19 MOS. MSRP of the IWI Masada is $480.

Some of the other IWI Masada features include:

  • 17+1 round capacity
  • Fully ambidextrous with controls on both sides, not swappable controls
  • A micro-textured grip that isn’t too aggressive
  • Three different sized swappable backstraps
  • Front and rear serrations
  • Steel three-dot dovetail sights

Comparing it to a full-size Glock, the barrel is closer in size to a Glock 19. The grip on the IWI Masada is thinner than the Glock and is actually closer to the H&K VP9. But IWI was able to squeeze in two more rounds than the VP9.

It also has a serialized chassis system that allows you to put the chassis into different frames.
