Our Assessment:  The Israeli Galil was born out of an impossible fight against the onslaught of AK47’s.  After the 6 Day War, Israel captured thousands of Egyptian AK47 rifles and discovered for themselves all the benefits the Kalashnikov rifles provided as durability and maintenance go.  The FN FAL’s they were using were effective but were becoming less effective in the down and dirty conditions warfare had become in the Middle Eastern Deserts. Several designs were offered to the Israeli Defense Force to gain an advantage over the AK47 including the M16, Stoner, rifle design by UZI, the HK33 from Germany, and the Automatic Rifle Machine Gun (ARM) by Yasrael Galil.  I’ll let you guess who won.  The (ARM) Galil was a design taken from the Finnish Valmet RK62 or the civilian M76, also known as the AK47 Perfected and was given a few more designs to make it really the most spankin’ rifle ever designed.  The Galil was quickly adopted by Israel as their new standard issue rifle and became everyone’s favorite butt kicking machine. The Gallant is a modern take on the Galil platform of rifles using modern receivers and barrels but dressed in original Israeli Galil parts that make this rifle feel and look true to the originals.  Don’t let this one of a kind gun get away, get bidding today!
