IMI is simply a firearms manufacterer that happens to make firearms for the Israeli military. they also make firearms for civilian use as well. MR contracted IMI to refine the design and manufacture the DE for them in the beginning. as far as i know, the DE was intended for the civilian market and has not ever been adopted by any military force that i know of.
IMI may may firearms for the Israeli military, and would be similar in comparison to Colt who makes firearms for the military and civilians.
