IWI MASADA 9mm polymer framed striker‐fired pistol was developed in order to provide an advanced solution to the modern battlefield requirements. Much more than just another striker‐fired pistol, the MASADA features a low profile barrel for reduced perceived recoil. Fully ambidextrous controls and enhanced ergonomics which provide a natural and instinctive pointing grip angle. Three interchangeable wrap around back‐straps coupled with the deep beavertail enabling the MASADA pistol to fit a wide variety of hand sizes.

Masada’s frame is made of high strength, impact resistant fiberglass reinforced polymers. Like all IWI firearms, it is built to withstand and endure all types of military use and abuse in extremely harsh environmental conditions.

MASADA utilizes a modular serialized high grade steel trigger mechanism housing that can be easily removed, allowing simple and easy disassembly and maintenance.

MASADA's trigger is designed to enhance the shooter's accuracy and safety.  The MASADA trigger has an average pull from 5.5 to 7 Lb. with a clean and crisp break and a positive reset. Featuring a built‐in trigger safety, the pistol will not fire unless the trigger is pulled. The shooter's security is further enhanced during cleaning and maintenance as there is no need to pull the trigger in order to field strip the weapon.

MASADA comes with a polygonal rifled, cold hammer forged barrel with 1:10 RH twist rate.

MASADA magazines offer a generous capacity of 17+1.
