Cybergun IWI Jericho 941 Metal Slide CO2 BB Gun Review

12 Comments

Type: BB air pistol.
Manufacturer: Cybergun.
Model: IWI Jericho 941.
Materials: Metal & polymer build.
Weight: 2 pounds.
Barrel: 4.62 inches, brass, non-rifled.
Propulsion: CO2 x1.
Action: Semi auto non-blowback, double action only.
Ammunition Type: Steel BBs 4.5mm.
Ammunition Capacity: 22 rounds
FPS: 443
Trigger Pull: The trigger pull on the IWI Jericho 941 was about medium to hard but defiantly not the worst air gun I have tested. After you quickly shoot off a full CO2 cartridge you may need a bit of a break to rest your trigger finger but the actual shooting experience is just fine.

Accuracy: Accuracy was pretty good for a double action shooter, I got around a 1.5 inch grouping from a 20 foot away free standing position, shooting just a hair to the left but a bit on the high side. It is a bit unfortunately that the Jericho 941 does not have sight elevation adjustments as it would make a very accurate airgun otherwise. I also put the Cybergun IWI Jericho 941 through my Chrony Chronograph and got very impressive FPS results, actually starting off and staying well above the claimed manufacturers FPS. My 8 shot average on a new CO2 was a very high 488 FPS, again well above Cybergun's claimed 443 FPS.
Build Quality: Very good, the Jericho 941 weights in at about 2 pounds which is a very hefty weight for a medium sized pistol. The build quality and fit and finish is good all around with decent usage of metal in the slide, magazine, outer barrel and trigger.

Realism: The Cybergun IWI Jericho 941 is very close to the look, weight, and feel of the real Israel Weapons Industries Jericho 941! Even though it doesn't have a working slide it definitely looks the part with the Licensed trade marks, cut out ejection port, full size drop out metal magazine and recessed metal barrel.
Available From: The Replica Airguns Store

Pros:

  • Very good weight and solid feeling gun.
  • Metal Slide and metal outer barrel.
  • All metal full size drop out magazine holds CO2 and BB's.
  • Very accurate IWI Jericho 941 replica with licensing and tradmarks.
  • Excellent FPS, well above claimed!
  • Lots of shots per CO2 - close to 100.
  • Good accuracy for a double action BB shooter.
  • Very affordable.

Cons:

  • Non-blowback and the slide is non-functioning.
  • The hammer is only for show and does not cock back for single action shots.
  • Non adjustable rear sights, a bit of a pity with this rather accurate pistol.
  • Trigger action is bit on the heavy side and gets a bit tiring after lots of shooting.

Comments:
I ordered my Cybergun IWI Jericho 941 with two other Cybergun pistols (The Sigarms GSR and Sig Sauer SP2022), all of them in the lower and more affordable price point, the Jericho 941 is definitely the hardest shooting out of the bunch. For a relatively inexpensive BB gun you get good value for your money, most importantly a very accurate reproduction of the real IWI Jericho 941 firearm! If you want to purchase an air pistol replica that's very hard hitting, accurate, get's lots of shots per CO2, has excellent weight and realism then the Jericho 941 may be the airgun for you?
