Galil

From Internet Movie Firearms Database - Guns in Movies, TV and Video Games
(Redirected from IMI Galil ARM)
Jump to: navigation, search

The IMI Galil is a 5.56x45mm assault rifle series based on the AK/Valmet series of assault rifles. It is also produced in slightly modified form by Vektor of South Africa as the R4 family of rifles, Indumil of Colombia and EMEC of Myanmar as the MA-1.

Please note when adding movies to make sure of the variant and caliber of the Galil. Often Galil AR and SAR's are simply labeled as Galil ARMs. Identify a Galil by the barrel length and or the existence of a bipod. Galil ARM's have a bipod under the barrel, while SARs and ARs do not. Galil SARs have shorter barrels then ARs.

A 7.62x51mm Galil of any variant should be placed under the "Galil 7.62" section.

The Galil or one of its variants are used in the following films, TV shows, anime and video games by the following actors:

Galil 7.62

IMI Galil ARM chambered in 7.62x51mm NATO. Note the thicker, straight box magazine.

The 7.62mm (.308 Winchester, or 7.62x51mm NATO) variants of the Galil are the same as the 5.56mm versions, except chambered in a different round. These rifles generally have longer barrels, bayonet lugs, shortened trigger guard and a straight, thicker box magazine. The magazines are almost identical to M14 magazines, which were previously used before a new magazine was developed (the M14 magazines were all converted to fit the Galil) that featured a checkered pattering to them and held 25 rounds.
