Mitvach Hair is currently competing for the tender issued by the Israel Police for the supply of service handguns to replace the Jericho handguns currently in use. The Israel Defense website had reported (November 22, 2015) that the Israel Police intended to purchase 15,000 9mm handguns of three types (full size, carry and compact) as well as 15,000 5.56mm caliber assault and marksman-type rifles in the M4 configuration that may be fitted with riot control accessories. In addition to Mitvach Hair, competitors for this tender include IWI with their Jericho handguns, and the MRD Ephraim Company – distributors of Glock Firearms in Israel. At the present time, the contender firearms are being evaluated by the Israel Police and the results are expected to be announced by this summer.
