The Masada has passive safety mechanisms, including a firing pin block safety and a crisp trigger reset with a built-in trigger safety. It features a takedown mechanism made to be fast, easy, and safe with no need to pull the trigger for disassembly. The pistol comes in another variant which utilizes a thumb activated manual safety. The slide comes standard with improved front and rear cocking serrations and enhanced ergonomics with an improved grip angle. The low barrel axis reduces recoil and improves sight recovery. The body is a glass-reinforced polymer frame with a polygonal cold hammer forged barrel in a 1:10RH twist.

Additional features include fully ambidextrous slide stop and magazine release with standard fixed 3-dot tritium illuminated Meprolight night sights. The weight without the magazine is 22.9 ounces (650 g). The Masada will be available in three colors: OD Green, Black, and Flat Dark Earth (FDE).

Casey Flack, CEO of IWI US, stated, "This is our first entry into the striker fired pistol market and we are very pleased with the results. Having a completely ambidextrous system, coupled with IWI's famous performance, will make this a serious contender for civilian and government customers."

The Masada pistol with be available in the first quarter of 2018.
