Coming out of left field last week is IWI with the announcement of the new Masada Slim micro-compact pistol via the company’s social media accounts. The new version of the Masada Slim comes with all the up to date features you expect from a micro compact pistol as a consumer. Which allows the Masada Slim to be competitive in the marketplace. Below, is the press release and specs for IWI new slim downed Masada. Let’s see what the Masada Slim has to offer.
The Masada Slim is the continuation of the Masada line of pistols. Developed with a thin profile and compact design, it allows for ease of concealed carry while providing substantial magazine capacity.
The Masada Slim is a compact, polymer striker-fired pistol. Like the full-size Masada, this pistol has a modular, serialized, high-grade steel trigger mechanism housing that can easily be removed for cleaning and maintenance. Currently offered in 9mm caliber, the Masada Slim comes with 2-13rd magazines. It weighs 1.27lbs without the magazine and 1.4lbs with the magazine inserted. The barrel length is 3.4 inches.
The Masada Slim comes with a white front dot sight and a blacked-out rear sight. Sight cuts are the same on the Masada Slim as on the full-size Masada, while the slide utilizes the RMS Shield optics cut for direct optic mounting options. This footprint will also allow the user to run the Holosun EPS Carry, 507K `X2, Sig Romeo Zero, etc.
The Masada slim has a flat trigger with a clean and crisp break and a positive reset with a built-in trigger safety which prevents the pistol from firing unless the trigger is pulled.
Overall, the Masada Slim stays true to the long history of IWI Firearms and is built to withstand the elements of time while performing when it matters the most.
