MAC reports that the IWI Galil ACE will be offered in the USA as a pistol and rifle chambered in 7.62x39mm. It will go on sale after SHOT Show (February 2015).
The first officially announced Galil ACE product is the pistol variant. From the press release …
The IWI US ® pistol will be available initially in 7.62x39mm with an 8.3″ barrel and an overall length of 18″. The Galil ACE pistol has a 2-piece Picatinny rail with adjustable front and rear sights with Tritium post on the front site. The Tri-Rail forearm system features removable covers, including a protected pressure switch area. The Galil accepts standard AK-style magazines.
A feature of the IWI US Galil ACE® is the new location of the charging handle. It has been moved to the left side enabling the user to maintain control over the pistol while charging and also allows for faster target re-acquisition. The safety selector is available on right and left sides.
The MSRP is $1,749.00 …. ouch!
