    Breathing new life into the Galil

    I'm currently in Israel touring the IWI factory. You can follow my adventures here: The Bang Switch | Military Arms Channel Blog

    One of the firearms I've had the pleasure to inspect and even shoot is the new Galil ACE. Here's a break-down of the rifle: Breathing new life into the Galil | The Bang Switch

    Overall I've been impressed with the changes. At first I was skeptical, that was until I had a chance to handle and shoot it. Now I want one.

    The Galil is my "go to" SHTF rifle.

    This is very true though~~~> "The Galil tipped the scales at 8.7 lbs empty which was a bit heavy for most users tastes"

    Yepper...9 pounds EMPTY and the original IMI steel mags are also heavy. A fully stoked 50 round mag "in gun" adds a lot of carry weight.
    An older steel optics mount adds yet another pound.
    And then when you start humping extra rifle magazines - you end up really lugging some pounds.

    Since it was originally designed as a full auto squad rifle it was built like a tank. It is not the bug out rifle for folks who tire easily.

    That GALIL ACE looks great!
