I bought one 3 months ago. I like it, fit and finish are first rate, accuracy is acceptable. Built like a tank.
Out of the box to zero @ 25 yrds.


Having fun after zero


Runs flawless, action is very smooth and refined. For what it is I'm happy to have bought it. On the AK forum/Galil sub forum we've been discussing this video all week especially the slow motion shots showing the barrel and rail flex and its potential effect on optics. I have M3 and M4's I can run on it fine and just bought a Primary Arms 3X Prism scope to dedicate to it that should hold up fine. If you don't mind the price you have to pay for it you'll probably like it. It sure is "different". It shoots very nice hardly any recoil, trigger is ok.

Thanks from Tommo

If anyone here is related to Larry please stop reading now, he gets paid to say is way better than it is! I don't blame him, if I could do it I would too! A glock is a glock no matter the grey color or vickers this or vickers that. It is all lipstick on a pig! That goes for most in my book! Same with this galil, these didn't come out this year, they have been around for decades! A little lipstick goes a long way.

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks from DennisMc

While you may be right about Larry, the ACE is in fact a redesign and is "new". The benefit of the video is the quality of the pics, especially the extreme slo mo. I can ignore all day what he says,but, I like the camera work, plenty of value in that. The ACE isn't a pig to me, for what it is its a well made rifle.

I really want an AK of some sort. I saw these. Look alright. In the deepest pit of my heart, I want an IMI 308 Galil...

4K though...

I really should get something in 7.62x39 though... I can't believe how expensive AKs are these days... I remember when they were $400 for decent Russian or Romanian kinds...

I think an AK would be the only gun I would run steel with... I probably would clean it occaisionally... like once every couple years...

The new ones in .308 aren't 4K, try $1799 http://www.gunbroker.com/item/614346687
saw one go for $1750 two weeks ago.

I had one just like that I bought in'86 for like $1800. Took it to the range never fired one round through it, something wrong with the TG. Got my money back from the guy I bought it from. One of those "if I knew then what I know now" moments. Wish I'd kept it.

I got my Galil ACE a few months ago and loving it so far! It feeds anything you put in it and is reasonably accurate. I still haven't really stretched it out beyond 25yds yet however. Mine is the 7.62x51 caliber. I'll get a range report once I am able to get to the range where I can shoot at 225yds.

Impressive, except for the barrel whip. My AK's are not nearly worn out, so I think that I'll pass for now.

Interesting, but it's a bit rich for my diet. I fully agree with Larry's comment about the handguard being too short.
