Galil ACE Rifle – 5.45x39mm – Discontinued

← Go Back

IWI is excited to introduce an extremely limited edition of Galil’s chambered in 5.45x39mm with barrel lengths of 8.3” and 16”. The modernized Galil ACE is based upon the reliable mechanism of the original Galil rifle first developed by IMI in the late 1960s. 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.

There will only be 545 units of each barrel length with custom SN to match.

 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
  • AK-74 magazine compatibility. (Note that the Galil ACE rifle is assembled in the US from imported and US parts under 18 U.S.C  § 922(r). You should only use magazines made in the USA in your Galil ACE rifle. Use of an imported magazine may put you in violation of 18 U.S.C § 922(r).)
  • Weight reduction with the use of modern polymers
  • Full length 2-piece Picatinny style top rail
  • Picatinny style 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
