    IMI - Israel Military Industries Galil MLR Straight Pull .223 Rifles

    RiflesStraight PullNearly New£ 1,000

    The IMI Galil is a rifle designed by Yisrael Galil in the last years of 1960s, and was produced by Israel Military Industries (IMI)


    The design is closely based on the Valmet Rk 62, which is itself an improved version of the Soviet AK-47.

    During the 1967 Six-Day War, the Israelis captured thousands of AK-47 assault rifles and after evaluating them found that the rifle was far more reliable and controllable than the FAL that the IDF had been equipped with.

    Russian immigrant, Yisrael Balashnikov, who changed his name to Galili as it sounded more Hebrew and less Russian, took the best concepts of both the captured AKs and the Valmet and produced a combat rifle chambered in the preferred 5.56 NATO cartridge.

    The rifle famously features a bottle opener the rear of the front handguard!

    For the full story and with his kind permission, check out Ian McCollum’s excellent “Forgotten Weapons” video about the rifle at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SLDw6i1D52U&list=PLCCNMT4zPw Cwj3P3AAsM3Cq8cYFUsaOhR&index=7&t=547s

    Unlike the original, the rifle here is a straight-pull UK section 1 compliant MLR and comes with a five-round magazine.
