The list of every Israeli-made handgun I know of. Feel free to add ones I missed in the comments. I deliberately avoided listing all of the variants in this post; even just figuring out all the basic models has been challenging.
Welcome to my new blog!
This blog focuses on Israeli-designed, Israeli-manufactured, and Israeli-used firearms. It will also include anything else I deem pertinent and interesting. Much like The Firearm Blog, my interest is “Firearms Not Politics”, so don’t expect a lot of commentary on the political situation in Israel.
In terms of who your intrepid blogger is: I am an Orthodox Jew living on the east coast of the United States. I am not Israeli and have never been to Israel, but find Israeli firearms developments fascinating from a Jewish pride perspective. Further, I believe the Israelis have a very unique and interesting small arms program from a historical perspective, one that combines indigenous development with carefully-chosen foreign guns, plus a smattering of desperation that gives a ton of flavor.
I am not claiming to be a historian, but I have done a fair amount of research on the Internet and in various books. I will endeavor to make clear what I believe is fact, and what I believe is theory.
