Improvements made since the original Galil was first developed and Galil ACE include:
The new Galil ACE GEN II is a continuation of the Galil ACE, which is
based on the reliable mechanics of the original Galil rifle first
developed by IMI in the late 1960’s. Drawing inspiration from the
legendary Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62, the IWI Galil
family has been continuously improved over the last 50 years, resulting
in today’s extremely reliable and highly accurate Galil ACE GEN II.
