IWI US, the US subsidiary of the famed Israeli firearm manufacturer Israel Weapon Industries, will begin offering Galil ACE pistols and rifles chambered in 7.62x39mm in spring 2015. Military Arms Channel (MAC) broke the news this morning on Facebook and Instagram with two photos of a short-barreled rifle variant of the new gun.
More information was provided in a YouTube video MAC released later in the day, which is embedded below. A pistol variant of the gun with an eight-inch barrel and a folding Sig SB-15 brace will be offered starting in February, while a 16-inch rifle with a collapsible M4-style stock will be released in March. The Galil ACE is patterned after the AK series of firearms, and the new guns IWI US will be producing combine the time-tested Kalashnikov action with modern features like a full-length top Picatinny rail and an ambidextrous fire selector.
Pricing information was not immediately available, but MAC reported that they will cost below what Tavors are currently retailing for (roughly $1,600).
