Israel Weapon Industries, or IWI, is making an “extremely limited edition” run of Galil ACE rifles and pistols chambered for 5.45x39mm ammunition. Guaranteed to be as shootable as they are collectible, IWI is only making 545 of each in a custom serial number range.

“IWI is excited to introduce an extremely limited edition of Galils chambered in 5.45x39mm with barrel lengths of 8.3 and 16 inches,” said IWI in the announcement. “The modernized Galil ACE is based upon the reliable mechanism of the original Galil rifle first developed by IMI in the late 1960s. Drawing inspiration from the legendary Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62, the IWI Galil ACE has been continuously improved over the last 40 years.”

The AK-inspired ACE is the most up-to-date version of the Galil rifle, originally developed for military and police use. It features a left-side reciprocating charging handle and dust cover, full-length 2-piece Picatinny rail and fully adjustable iron sights including a front tritium night sight.

Each rifle and pistol is built on a milled steel receiver with a polymer sub-assembly. They come with a folding, telescoping buttstock or brace, ergonomic palmswell pistol grip, and modular forend.

The forend panels can be removed for access to front accessory rail sections. They also have left-and right-side safety selectors and an ambidextrous paddle magazine release. Thanks to design updates, these are fairly light at 7.5 pounds for the rifle and 6 pounds for the pistol, both unloaded.

The 5.45 guns have threaded barrels and come with a birdcage flash hider and one 30-round Magpul magazine. IWI will also provide owners with certificates of authenticity if they would like through their customer service and sales department.

While these are made in the US, they are manufactured from a mix of American-made and imported components, so IWI recommends users to stick with American-made magazines to comply with 922 codes.

Despite being such an extremely limited edition run the 545 rifles and 545 pistols carry relatively standard Galil price tags. The rifles are priced at $1,899 and the pistols a little less at $1,849.

That being said with such a small production run it’s impossible to predict what the real-world pricing for these will be. It’s safe to assume they will list for at least full price, especially during this season.
