The modernized Galil ACE is based upon the reliable mechanism of the original Galil assault rifle first developed by IMI in the late 1960’s. Drawing inspiration from the legendary Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62, the IWI Galil ACE has been continuously improved over the last 40+ years. Improvements made since the original Galil was first developed include: Charging handle (reciprocating) moved to the left side of the milled steel receiver allowing for weak hand operation. AKM/AK-47 magazine compatibility. Weight reduction with the use of modern polymers. Full length 2-piece Picatinny top rail. Picatinny tri-rail forearm with built in, slide on/off rail covers with pressure switch access. Side Folding adjustable telescoping buttstock with 2 position removable comb on all rifle models. Fully adjustable iron sights with Tritium front post. Operating System: Closed rotating bolt, long stroke gas piston. Barrel Material: Cold hammer forged, CrMoV, chrome lined.
