IWI Galil ARM (7.62)
IWI Galil ARM 332 7.62 mm
The Galil is a family of Israeli small arms designed by I. Galili and Y. Lior, produced by Israel Military Industries Ltd. The weapon system consists of a 5.56 mm line chambered for the intermediate 5.56x45mm NATO caliber with either M193 or SS109 ball ammunition and several 7.62 mm models designed for use with the 7.62x51mm NATO rifle cartridge.
The Galil series of rifles are selective-fire automatic weapons operated by a gas-driven piston system. Locking is achieved through a rotating bolt. The Galil is fed by arched, steel box magazines with a 35-round capacity (SAR and AR versions) a 50-round capacity (ARM model) and 12-round magazines for blanks used to launch rifle grenades. Early production models were supplied with barrels that had six right-hand grooves at a 305 mm twist rate (designed for use with M193 ball ammunition), recent production versions feature a 178 mm twist barrel with six right-hand grooves (used to stabilize SS109/M855 ball projectiles). The barrel has a ported flash hider used to launch rifle grenades and a bayonet lug attachment point. The stamped sheet metal fire selector lever is simultaneously the manual safety and ensures the weapon is not discharged accidentally. The Galil also includes a selector switch on the receiver`s left side, intended to be manipulated by the thumb of the firing hand.
The weapon is issued with a metal side-folding (folds to the right) skeleton stock and a flip-up peep-style sight with two apertures set for firing at 0-300 m and 300-500 m. Nighttime use is enhanced with the addition of luminous dots to the front post and rear sight. Certain variants have a receiver-mounted adapter that`s used to mount optical sights. The rifle can also be used with a sound suppressor.
The 7.62 mm Galil is derived from the 5.56 mm base version. The rifle retained the general design layout and method of operation of the 5.56 mm variant. It is available in several different configurations including a SAR carbine, full size AR rifle and ARM light machine gun. These weapons are fed from 25-round box magazines (previously 20-rounds). The barrel has four right-hand grooves with a 305 mm rifling twist.
