IWI’s New Video of GL 40 On ACE N Rifle

This new video form IWI shows the launcher on a ACE N rifle and looks to show off their QD system for the user to be able to quickly change tactics if need be.  Check out the video the have released and the information release for the IWI GL 40 below the video.

IWI 40 mm Grenade Launcher is compatible with all types of assault rifles. Made of lightweight materials, the system is easy to assemble and operate, and offers a stand-alone option that enables firing separately from the weapon. Developed in cooperation with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), the IWI GL 40 Grenade Launcher – which weighs only 1.400 kg – is a single-shot 40x46mm launcher, ergonomically designed, and versatile. Available in two barrel lengths – for 400m and 300m range – the GL 40 is designed for low and medium velocity (longer than usual range) rounds. Unlimited feed for most 40mm rounds enables operation in any situation or combat conditions. The stand-alone option enables firing separately from the launcher when it is dismantled from the weapon.

Attaching to the lower rail of the weapon and locking rapidly with the lever, the GL40 can be quickly assembled and disassembled by a single soldier without any additional tools. Due to its side-opening barrel, which allows a simple injection and extraction of the grenade, it can use various lengths of ammunition including long grenades. Picatinny rails on the bottom and sides enable the incorporation of various devices and accessories.

IWI ACE N Assault Rifle is a member of the ACE Family of assault rifles that fits the NATO cartridge. The ACE Family of Assault Rifles is based on the exceptionally reliable mechanism of the very successful GALIL Assault Rifle. Blending enhanced human engineering and ergonomics with the demands of the modern battlefield – and providing both automatic and semi-automatic fire modes – the ACE has been extensively battle proven under the most extreme conditions, worldwide. The rifle comes in three barrel lengths. Its 4 Picatinny rails act as a platform to mount a wide array of optical devices and other accessories. Air cooled and gas operated, the rifles are easy to use by right or left-handed users, are simple to maintain without special tools, and include night sights and telescopic and/or foldable butts.

    Dear IWI,

    Please produce a semi auto variant of the Galil ACE at your new US manufacturing facility.

    Thank you.

    Do IDF even wear multicam?

    That music is so Hans Zimmer action movie.

    • I doubt it. I recognize the range though. It’s one of the ranges at IWI in Israel.

      I heard the official stance by the military that ‘camouflage doesn’t work’, hence them not using camo even for elite units. Personally think they are just cheap.

      • Roger Van Zant

        It seems like the IDF just has a different approach to camo. You don’t see many uniforms in camo but they have mesh oversuits and helmet covers printed in desert and woodland patterns.


        • Joe Schmoe


          In the IDF, we use a combination of camo uniforms and these camo suits depending on the situation and environment. The ones in your pictured are older models but still in use, the newer versions have a special 3D design that uses shadows and actual depth to fool the eyes; it is extremely effective.

          I’m limited by how much I can talk about this due to OPSEC, but I’ll try and answer any questions you have within reason.

            Is this it?

          • Joe Schmoe

            That particular design I have little knowledge of beyond official sources and releases. That is, that it is in testing with a few special force units.

            May I ask the story behind the US woodland camo in one picture?

          • Joe Schmoe


            We use surplus U.S. camo uniforms in training since they tear pretty easily (surprised me) but don’t cost anything; we literally get them with nametags and ranks still attached.

            Certain special force units however may also use them in the field. The unit pictured (if I’m not mistaken) is the “Egoz” (Walnut 🙂 ) anti-guerrilla special force unit.
