Hot off the presses from IWI-US: they’re now manufacturing barrels.
This is big news because it means the .300AAC conversion is probably going to finally happen in 2016. It will also aid in getting the Galil ACE rifles out the door – they need 922r compliance parts, and a barrel is one of them.
Another fascinating tidbit is that they’re going to be making AR-15 and M4 barrels for other manufacturers. While this may just be a way to keep their CHF machine going at full-tilt 24/7, it would be a very short step to manufacturing their own line of AR-15s. I don’t necessarily know why they’d want to get into that market, given how crowded it is, but maybe they’d export back to Israel? No reason IWI-US couldn’t export parts to IWI, after all.
