The Galil ACE pistol (GAP39-II, 2nd GEN) and Galil ACE pistol with SB Tactical custom side-folding Stabilizing Brace in 7.62x39mm now arriving at local FFL dealers
Harrisburg, Pa. (Ammoland.com) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is pleased to announce that the new Galil ACE® pistol (GAP39-II, 2nd GEN) and the Galil ACE pistol with SB Tactical™ custom side-folding Stabilizing Brace™ (GAP39SB) in 7.62x39mm are now shipping. The pistols will be arriving at local FFL dealers toward the middle of November.
The Galil ACE SB features a side-folding Stabilizing Brace produced for IWI US by SB Tactical, designers of the original SB15 and SB47 Pistol Stabilizing Braces. Originally designed as a means for persons with limited mobility to operate and fire the AR-15 pistol, the custom adaptation of the Stabilizing Brace to the Galil ACE pistol takes the application of large frame pistol control and stabilization to a new level. With the IWI brace’s unique side-folding feature, the Galil ACE SB can be fired with or without the brace extended, depending on the shooter’s need. With the brace in the folded position, storage space required in the owner’s safe or range/rifle bag is minimized. In all other respects, the Galil ACE GAP39SB is identical to the GAP39-II.
Improvements made since the original Galil was first developed include the charging handle (reciprocating) moved to the left side of the milled steel receiver, allowing for weak hand operation. Additional advancements include weight reduction with the use of modern polymers, AKM/AK-47 magazine compatibility, full-length two-piece Picatinny top rail and fully adjustable iron sights with Tritium front post and 2-Dot Tritium rear aperture. There is also a Picatinny tri-rail forearm with built-in, slide on/off rail covers with pressure switch access.
The GAP39-II, (2nd GEN) and GAP39SB are not available for sale in California or Massachusetts. Magazine capacity restrictions may apply in other states.
