United States to Get Galil ACE Imports in 2015

Anyone who owns a piston-operated rifle has heard of the AK-47 and the IMI Galil. If not, then you should have. Both of these weapons were pioneers in their division, the designs of which have been replicated and tweaked to this day. In 2010, Israel Weapons Industries (IWI) produced updated models of the Galil, known as the IWI Galil ACE lineup

As you saw in the video we shared yesterday, IWI-US will be importing semi-automatic versions of the Galil ACE into the United States next year! In February 2015, the ACE 31 (pistol variant, chambered in 7.62x39mm Russian). In March 2015, the ACE 32 (rifle with 16" barrel, chambered in 7.62x39 Russian) will be available. Presumably, 5.56x45mm NATO and 7.62x51mm NATO versions will follow.
Watching the video, you can see that these models lack the select-fire control that the Israeli and Colombian ACEs have. In addition, they are expected to be priced lower than the IWI Tavor, which is currently retailing for about $1,700 US. The notion of getting our hands on one is enticing - to say the least!

Something interesting to note - especially for a SIG fan like me - is that the Galil ACE pistols will be packaged with a SIGTac SB15 Stabilizer Brace, according to the Military Arms Channel.
