The new Galil ACE GEN Il is a continuation of the Galil ACE, which is based on the reliable mechanics of the original Galil rifle first developed by IM1 in the late 1960’s. Drawing inspiration from the legendary Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62, the IWI Galil family has been continuously improved over the last 50 years, resulting in today’s extremely reliable and highly accurate Galil ACE GEN II.
At the end of the 1960s, the state of Israel was experiencing quite tumultuous times: the Six-Day War had just ended and lasting peace seemed a long way off. As a result of this state of uncertainty, projects were started in order to make the newborn Jewish state independent from the rest of the world as far as the supply of light weapons was concerned, One of the results of this self-sufficiency was the Galil assault rifle, designed towards the end of the 1960s by V Israel Galil, already involved in the project of the UZI machine gun, and Yaacov Lior, During the Six-Day War against Egypt, Israeli soldiers, who were armed with the FN FAL, captured many AK-47s that were carefully studied and proved to be particularly reliable evon in the dusty and stifling desert climate. The Galil was in fact an uncompromisingly built AK-47 – or rather a perfected version of the Finnish Valmet Rk62 assault rifle that at the time.represented the most sophisticated reworking.of Michail Kalashnikov’s design.The Galil was put into production by 1Ml (Israel Military Industries)which later changed its name to 1W1.

In these new/ versions the Galil today more than ever represents a link between the AR-15 and AK-47 worlds, and while it cannot rival the two venerable assault rifles in terms of popularity, it represents an interesting conversation piece for gun enthusiasts. At least until we get a chance.GALIL ACE GEN2 FOR SALE
