The modern day Galil ACE rifle was modeled based upon the original Galil assault rifle developed by IMI in the 1960’s. It was heavily influenced by the Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62, and since then it has made vast improvements over the last 40+ years which has made it one of the most accurate and reliable rifles on the market.
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. (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).)
