Editor’s Note:

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.

Hands-On Reviews & Related Post

final verdict

“Overall, I had a great time with the Galil ACE Gen 2 rifle from IWI. Chambered in 7.62, this gun gets two major thumbs up from me. The upgrades over the Gen 1 take this rifle to the next level, providing a more comfortable handling experience. The ACE is known for its robust design and reliability, and both continue with the Gen 2. In short, I love it.” – Jonny B
