U.S.A. -(AmmoLand.com)- Israel Weapon Industry – a member of the SK Group founded by Mr. Samy Katsav, and a worldwide leader in the production of combat-proven small arms for governments, armies, and law enforcement agencies around the world – announces the launch of the Ace Sniper S.A Rifle. Based on the reliable, proven platform of the known Galil-Ace, the semi-automatic rifle with its advanced ergonomics design provides the user with the greatest accuracy and rapid engagement, even in harsh environments and weather conditions.

The innovative rifle empowers sniper proficiency in accurate long-distance firing, while its semi-automatic capability enables multi-target acquisition and fast shooting towards multiple targets.

To ensure mission success, a number of advanced design features can be adapted to meet the needs of evolving situations and different users. A foldable buttstock with an adjustable cheek-rest provides a superior fit for the individual shooter. The free-floating barrel – 23” hammer-forged, chrome-lined, with 1:9.5” twist – enhances accuracy and extends barrel longevity. The two-stage trigger enables the user to adjust trigger-pull to their personal preference, sending the heavier, longer-range 7.62 NATO round accurately downrange to the target, while facilitating a faster release of the next bullet. The muzzle brake mitigates
recoil, so that the shooter can get back on target quicker.

Additional features include a full-length top Picatinny rail (460mm), along with an M-Lock system at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, and an adjustable folding bipod that can easily be flipped into the required position, giving the shooter more flexibility to adjust to any shooting situation.

The MIL.-STD magazine is easy to insert into the Sniper rifle and, with a capacity of 20 rounds, enables the user to be more effective over an extended period of time. The rifle is adaptable to all zoom riflescopes available today for medium to long-range shooting. A locking mechanism prevents any harm or injury to the shooter in case of a bullet explosion out of the chamber, and a bolt carrier tail prevents the hammer from reaching the firing pin before locking has been completed.

“First and foremost, the development of the new sniper rifle meets the user’s need for fast and accurate operation, even in challenging and changing environments, such as CQB zones, and while vehicles are on the move,” says Ronen Hamudot, Executive VP Marketing, and Sales at SK Group.

“In addition to the advanced features like the adjustable butt, the floating barrel, and the two-stage trigger mechanism, the sniper rifle also includes a safety mechanism for user protection. We are proud to share that the new rifle is already in use by clients around the world, and has already successfully completed missions in the field.”

Why put the title “Sniper” on any rifle? It will only give the anti-gun crowd more fuel for their fire. I like the title “Precision Rifle ” better.

There is no accounting for sales people. No pun intended.


Hmmmm.have several IWI offerings….TS12, X95, T7…..really like them…not the Galil, yet. Instead of releasing a new rifle, how about actuallt making avauilable their unobtainium 20″ conversion for the T7. No real description of action function……delayed roller, etc??? 23″ barrel…..long enough for maximum barrel whip, no profile info, length not necessary for 7.62/306 round, prefer 20″ stiff barrel for 7.62/308 rounds…..minimizes variability of whip, can dial for slight MV loss of 2″-3″, easier handling. MIL-STD magazine…..ain’t no MIL-STD in 7.62 platform, like 5.56 platform., Not seeing anything in this article that drives me to actually go looking for one. Folding stock,… Read more »


What I would like to know is when is IWI going to release an American variant of the CARMEL


Now if only IWI would just make a Galil Ace a more budget friendly lower priced platform, then I maybe could afford one, but what do you expect from proven reliable and just plan bad ass Galil


A MSRP would be nice. And same as for the accessories listed.
