The Galil ACE is IWI’s modern version of their original Galil ARM, which itself was a sort of the AK-47/Valmet/AR-15 mashup. The ACE uses the same mechanics as the original Galil, but in a lighter, smaller platform with a polymer lower receiver.
Considered widely to be the ultimate refinement of the AK-style platform, the Galil ACE in 7.62x39mm is a gas piston operated rifle that adds numerous improvements over its predecessors. A non-reciprocating left-side charging handle, M-LOK free float handguard, full-length Picatinny top rail, and a folding M4 style buttstock ensure that those who enjoy the 7.62x39mm cartridge have a rifle that is adapted for modern times and modern accessories.
The S&W M&P Sport II was long considered the best budget starter AR-15, but those days are well behind us. These are well-built and reliable guns, but a lack of updates to the furniture, barrel twist rates, and gas system length has led to other guns in the same price bracket taking the place of the Sport II.
The Desert Eagle delivers true magnum power with an iconic look that has made it one of the most recognizable firearms in the modern world.
The Desert Eagle is a pop-culture icon that has been immortalized in movies, tv shows, video games, and other media.

The Beretta Ultima Patrol is a new addition to the A300 family of shotguns. It is a gas-operated semi-automatic shotgun that features enlarged controls, an enlarged loading port, 7+1 capacity, and multiple M-LOK and QD sling slots. With its feature sets and price point, Beretta serves up a great value with the Ultima Patrol that’s not found in many comparable shotguns.
The Walther CCP M2 is the first polymer pistol to use a gas-delayed operating system in the form of Walther’s Soft-Coil technology. This system both reduces the felt recoil and makes the slide easier to rack. Also present is Walther’s trademark great ergonomics, which further help make the CCP comfortable to shoot for anyone. Tool-less takedown and a fixed barrel allow for easy maintenance as well. These single-stack pistols are great for anyone, but especially those with reduced hand strength.
The M1 Garand was the first standard-issue self-loading rifle adopted by the US. A simple but elegant design, the Garand uses a long-stroke gas piston that operates a rotating bolt. It is fed by an 8-round en-bloc clip that makes the distinctive “ping” sound once the clip is automatically ejected after all the rounds are spent. Chambered in the powerful 30-06 cartridge, the semi-automatic Garand gave US soldiers a huge edge over enemies and allies alike who were still using slower bolt-action rifles.
The DSA SA58 Improved Battle Rifle takes the ruggedness and reliability of the original FAL design and adds modern features. This rifle uses the B.R.S. (Battle Rifle Buttstock), which is adjustable for length-of-pull and comb, and also allows the gun to fire when folded. Also present is DSA’s extreme duty Picatinny scope mount and M-LOK front handguard. This allows you to mount all the optics and accessories you need to bring one of the most proven rifle designs in the world into the 21st century.
The iconic Steyr AUG is the oldest serving bullpup in military history, dating back to 1977. This 5.56x45mm rifle utilizes a short-stroke gas piston and a 16-inch quick-change barrel to deliver a compact, soft shooting experience. The Steyr AUG’s current incarnation is the Steyr AUG A3 M1, which is available with a short optics rail, extended optics rail, or an integrated 3x optic. Coming in at 8.8 pounds and just 28.15 inches long, the AUG is superbly balanced and is still a gold standard in the bullpup market today.
