IAI Backup Auto

     Notes: Not the same IAI as listed below, this IAI stands for Irwindale Arms Incorporated. Their Backup Auto is a very small (a little less than 11 centimeters) pistol firing .380 ammunition.  The Backup Auto features a 5-round magazine with an extension for the small finger, construction of all stainless steel (except for the plastic grip plates), recessed sights, internal hammer, and a grip safety as well as a switch safety.  The sights are small and difficult to use, but the Backup Auto is very useful for defensive purposes or as a backup pistol.

IAI M-777

     Notes: Despite the name of the company (Israel Arms International), IAI is a Texas company that sells primarily firearms based on the M-1911, M-1 Garand, and M-1 Carbine.  One of their pistols is the M-777 Compact, introduced in 1995.  It is basically an M-1911 in a compact form, with a Commander-type loop hammer, skeletonized trigger, beveled magazine well, and a larger feed ramp.  The slide catch and safety catch are also enlarged, as is the grip safety.  The M-777 can have an entirely stainless steel finish, or a blued steel slide and stainless steel frame, but both have rubber grips with finger grooves.

     The M-5000 is basically an M-777 made more mechanically simple.  It has all the improvements of the M-777, but does not have the rubber grips (though the magazines have a rubber extension on the bottom of them for the little finger).  Itís a bit heavier than the M-77, but otherwise the same.  It was introduced in 1996.  A variant of the M-5000, the M-7000, was introduced in 1999; it is identical except for a slightly wider grip to accommodate a two-stack 10-round magazine.

IAI M-999

     Notes: This pistol is basically a fancy M-1911 clone.  The M-999 has a polished feed ramp, enlarged grip safety, enlarged safety catch and slide catch.  The slide has cocking grooves in the front as well as the back of the slide.  It has the same finishes as the M-77 and the same rubber grips.  This weapon was introduced in 1999.

     The M-6000 is a weapon along the same vein as the M-5000; it is a mechanically simpler version of the M-999.  It uses the same magazines and grips as the M-5000.  For game purposes, it is identical to the M-999.

IAI M-2000

     Notes: The M-2000, also known as the ďGI version,Ē is basically a copy of the M-1911A1, built to more exacting specifications.  Externally, it looks just like an M-1911A1, including finish, grip plates, controls, etc.  As the name might indicate, it was introduced in 2000.

Intratec TEC-9 

     Notes: This infamous weapon, introduced in 1985, was popular amongst the urban gangs and drug dealers that dominated the crime scene in the 1990s.  Though eventually banned by the US government, by 1988 when production stopped, thousands had been produced.  The TEC-9 is patterned after the submachinegun format, can take various attachments, and is reportedly easy to convert to fully automatic fire. 

     A number of TEC-9 variations were also made.  In 1987, the TEC-9C carbine version was introduced (and only manufactured during 1987).  Itís not really a pistol, but included here for completeness.  The TEC-9C had a 16-inch barrel and a removable folding wire stock.  Also from 1985-88, a compact version of the TEC-9, the TEC-9M, was also built.  It has a 3-inch barrel half the length of the TEC-9ís barrel, and was designed for use with a 20 round magazine in addition to the standard TEC-9 36-round magazine.  The TEC-9M, in addition to the standard blued finish, was also found with a stainless steel finish.

     The TEC-22 Scorpion was a version of the TEC-9 designed to fire .22 Long Rifle ammunition instead of 9mm Parabellum.  It was fed from a 30-round magazine; usually curved, though straight magazines can sometimes be found.  The TEC-22 was built from 1986-88.  Barrel length is 4 inches.

     Built only for a few months in 1986, the TEC-25 is a rare variant of the series, chambered for .25 ACP.  It proved to be unpopular, as itís performance was about the same as the TEC-22, and .22 Long Rifle ammunition was much cheaper than .25 ACP.  It too used a 4-inch barrel.

IO Hellcat

     Notes: Designed both for concealed carry and as a backup pistol for police, the Hellcat is a very compact weapon which is very light in weight.  The company sells it with a special inside-pants holster designed for quick drawing. The frame is polymer with a steel slide, and the slide is specially coated and is very resistant to wear and tear and corrosion.  Operation is by locked breech with a tilting barrel, and the hammer is completely shrouded.  Operation is also DAO, and the trigger operates only a single strike; a misfiring cartridge must be ejected before another shot may be made.  The trigger module, inside the frame, is inside an aluminum subframe.  Though manuals say the Hellcat has a slide hold-open device, the actual pistol has none.  A manual safety and two passive safeties are present.  Barrel length is 2.75 inches, though length is only 5.16 inches.

Iver Johnson TP-22/TP-25

     Notes: Essentially high-quality clones of the Walther TPH, these two pocket pistols were added the companyís range after their move to Jacksonville, Arkansas in 1982.  They were finished in nickel plating or blued steel, with black plastic grip plates.  They are double-action weapons with hammer safeties in addition to a manual safety/slide lock lever.  The TP-25ís barrel is very slightly longer than that of the TP-22, but is otherwise identical in construction to the TP-22 (except for the caliber).

Jennings J-22/J-25

     Notes: These two pistols are virtually identical except for their caliber.  They are very light pistols known for their reliability and ease of maintenance.  The light weight cuts both ways, however; muzzle flash and recoil are both fairly high, even with the small calibers they fire.  They appear almost identical to Bryco 38 (q.v.), and Bryco pistols were actually distributed by Jennings.
