The Galil is a series of Israeli built rifles designed in the 1960's by Yisrael Galil and Yaacov. These were made by Israel Military Industries aka (IMI). The Galil design was a blend of the Finnish Valmet and Kalashnikov AK-47 . Most Galils are chambered for either the 5.56×45mm NATO or 7.62×51mm NATO cartridges.. "/>
