IMI Defense was founded in 2002 by Nisim Zusman to develop and manufacture the highest-quality, most ergonomic and innovative tactical weapons accessories, components and parts in the world – specifically for the rigors of combat performance. Nisim built a team of experienced engineers, gunsmiths, product designers, shooters and manufacturers, most of them with Military/Police/Other Agencies backgrounds in the Israeli Defense community. They started with the development of the first polymer AR magazine, ergonomic pistol grips, and other accessories, and simultaneously began making standard AR parts like bolt carrier group parts, G.I. handguards from modern polymers, and more.
Hallmark to the IMI Defense product offering is our revolutionary polymer holster line, which has gained both civilian and SOF user praise across the globe. The holsters combine modularity with structural strength, a perfect fit for each firearm, and user safety.
In addition to an extensive line of polymer holsters, our product lineup includes the industry’s most innovative telescoping/retractable AR buttstocks, pistol grips, vertical and angled foregrips, polymer magazines (5.56, 7.62×51, AK47, AK74, .22″, all HIGHLY-regarded for their reliability), polymer and aluminum handguards for AR, AK, MP5 etc. (quad, modular, KeyMod), and polymer and aluminum flip-up sights.
IMI Defense is also an innovator in the field of accurate training, offering LE and military units the MTR16 Modular Training Rifle system which is a highly realistic inert M16/AR15 mockup that lets users change out all accessories including buttstocks, grips, sights, and more while accepting standard magazines as well. The line also includes training rifles replicating the AK-47/AKM and AK74 weapons platforms.
New this year from IMI Defense is the Kidon™ pistol-to-carbine platform, a universal platform that works with a wide range of pistols to give the user more mission functionality from his or her handgun.
All IMI Defense products are developed and perfected through rigorous testing by, and feedback from, IDF Special Operations units and other branches of the Israeli defense community so they will perform without fail for military and civilian users alike, around the globe.
