In focus will be the leading Negev NG7- Light Machine Gun (LMG) with semi-automatic mode, and the advanced Tavor-X95 bullpup rifle. More on display are some of IWI’s sister-companies’ solutions, including Meprolight’s advanced weapons-adopted electro-optics systems and other special day/night vision sights, as well as Camero’s Xaver family of sense-through-wall systems. "We are pleased to take part in this important new exhibition – FEDETEC in Quito – and we look forward to a fruitful cooperation with Ecuador regarding the wide range of solutions IWI and Meprolight have to offer for the various security forces in Ecuador", says Mr. Natan Hendler VP marketing and Sales SK Group in Latin America.

The 5.56x45 and 7.62x51 calibers Negev LMG is deployed in dozens of countries around the world, including Israel, and has been combat-proven in a number of battle arenas. The Negev LMG includes a semi-automatic firing mode that enables accurate fire in combat situations, including ambush and Close Quarter Battle (CQB) when shooting via sights with single bullet firing capability. In automatic mode, its rate of fire is over 700 rounds per minute.

Exceptionally lightweight (less than 8 kg), it can be fired from a variety of mounts, including special mounts on helicopters, land vehicles, and naval vessels. Its features include a gas regulator for additional power in harsh conditions such as mud and dirt, tritium night sights, Picatinny rails for optical and other devices, and four safety mechanisms to minimize unwanted fire. The Negev LMG - which delivers remarkable MTBF and long service life - is drum or belt-chain fed, fires from an open bolt position, and is easily dismantled for maintenance in the field.

The Tavor-X95 rifle is an innovative firearm that was created and developed in close collaboration with elite units of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF). As the standard IDF assault rifle, it is exceptionally reliable in even the harshest weather conditions and complies with the most stringent NATO standards for small arms. The Tavor-X95 is offered in three calibers – 5.56mm, 300 BLK and 9mm – with an option for a 9mm conversion kit.

The Tavor-X95 platform incorporates a tri-rail forearm covered by three removable vented rail covers. The Tavor-style grip is modular and can be easily converted to a pistol grip as well. The charging handle has also been relocated closer to the shooter’s center mass and the ambidextrous magazine release enabling a firing hand magazine release. The X95 weights around 3 kg. and features a lightweight trigger pull. The rifle is available in black, FDE, and OD green. The rifle can be acquired with compatible sights from Meprolight – either the Mepro M21 Day/Night Self-Illuminated Reflex Sight or the Mepro RDS or RDS PRO Electronic Weapon Red Dot Sight.
