Our Assessment: The Timber Wolf is a pump-action carbine produced by Israeli Military Industries from 1989 to 1993. Most were chambered for .38 Special/.357 Magnum with fewer like this one, chambered for .44 Magnum. The rifles were imported by Uzi America, Action Arms, and Springfield Armory. The rifles are handy and quick to operate, making for great little brush guns, so it’s hard to understand why they were produced for such a short period. They are now somewhat collectible, especially the .44 Magnum. This example has minor wear, retaining a great bore and strong mechanics. Whether you’re looking for a trim .44 carbine or looking to add one of these scarce rifles to your collection, take a look at our photos and good luck!
