SHOT Show 2017 - IWI U.S. showcased the DAN .338 Lapua Magnum bolt-action long-range rifle, which is due to hit stores in north America and Europe within the year
IWI U.S. – the north-American branch of IWI / Israel Weapon Industries, Ltd. – announced at the 2017 SHOT Show in Las Vegas that the .338 Lapua Magnum DAN bolt-action long-range rifle will soon be made available to select civilian customers in the United States and Europe alike.
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, the IWI DAN also comes with a full-length bottom Picatinny rail for accessories and with 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.
Other features and accessories include a 28” heavy fluted, free-floating, cold-hammer forged interchangeable barrel with a 1:10" twist and a 5/8 x 24 TPI threaded muzzle; a two-stage adjustable trigger; an ambidextrous mag release and trigger block safety; two 10-round steel magazines; an Atlas BT46-LW17 PSR bipod and an ACCU-SHOT BT13-QK-PRM adjustable folding monopod; a Borka PTL precision torque limiter wrench; a Dewey BRCCK-338L cleaning kit with .338 Lapua Magnum custom DAN bore guide and 44” one-piece rod; and a heavy-duty lockable case with custom foam insert.
Designed by famed engineer Nehemiah Sirkis and first introduced on the MIL/LE markets at the 2014 edition of the EUROSATORY expo in Paris (France), the IWI DAN is a high-accuracy rifle delivering some of 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,» commented Michael Kassnar, Vice-President of sales & marketing for IWI U.S.
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.»
