Harrisburg, Pa. (May 2017) – IWI US, Inc., a subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Ltd., is pleased to announce that the Galil ACE® Pistol in 5.56 with Side Folding Stabilizing Brace has begun shipping to wholesalers everywhere.
The Galil ACE pistol features a side-folding stabilizing brace in 5.56 NATO (8.3” barrel). The brace was designed to help disabled shooters operate and fire an AR pistol and can be used in several different ways, including attached to the forearm using the provided strap, cheeked, and thanks to a recent clarification letter from the ATF, shouldered. The stabilizing brace allows the shooter to more easily control and stabilize the Galil ACE pistol. It can be fired with or without the brace extended.
“We were as relieved as anyone to hear that the ATF had come to the inevitable conclusion that the legality of a firearm isn’t changed by the way somebody holds it. Now that the Galil ACE pistol can be used to the full extent of its capabilities, I’m certain gun owners everywhere will be glad to know it’s now shipping to wholesalers everywhere in 5.56,” said Michael Kassnar, VP of sales and marketing for IWI US.
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, a 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.
