A bolt-action .338 Lapua Mag from Israel Weapon Industries? Didn’t see that one coming, but we’re sure interested to find out how it shoots. It’s certainly a bold first entry into the bolt gun world for IWI. Press release follows…
IWI US Introduces the DAN® .338 Tactical Precision Rifle to the US Market at the 2017 SHOT Show
The DAN .338 precision rifle, the first bolt-action rifle manufactured by Israel Weapon Industries, now available to a discerning American public.
Harrisburg, Pa. (January 2017) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., proudly announce the arrival on the US shores of the first IWI bolt-action tactical precision rifle in the DAN® .338. Manufactured to the exacting qualities that define all of the Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) products, the DAN delivers the highest standards of performance in reliability, ruggedness and sub-MOA accuracy in the .338 Lapua Magnum caliber.
“Having the extraordinary DAN .338 in the IWI US catalog is a complement to our current product line-up,” Michael Kassnar, vice president of sales & marketing for IWI US explained. “Until now, we did not have a bolt-action rifle, but then IWI does not believe in filling in its product line-up with just any firearm. Every product that comes out of IWI is meticulously designed, seriously engineered and manufactured and put right into action on the battlefield as its final test. Only those firearm systems that exceed their expectations become an IWI firearm. For serious shooters and long-range competitors, the DAN is the ultimate rifle.”
Built on a one-piece, lightweight aluminum alloy chassis with a full-length, one-piece Picatinny top rail with 20 MOA built-in canted drop, plus a full-length bottom Pic rail. For additional accessory mounting, there are also two moveable, short Picatinny rails at 3 and 6 o’clock. The side-folding aluminum buttstock is skeletonized for less weight and has an adjustable length-of-pull, adjustable drop-of-heel and adjustable comb.
