MajorPandemic was fortunate to be one of the first to get its hands on the Galil ACE GAR1651 .308/7.62×51 NATO, and had a chance to wring it out pretty well. What I (Major Pandemic) will say is, this is my favorite among the .308 semi-auto rifles I own.

Okay, don’t hate on us too much but a couple of these rifles are 2013 mid-year introductions or just too
We’ve written about the Tavor before, so I won’t go into the technical details. The Tavor looks and feels futuristic.
Very early 2012, the experts at Cheaper Than Dirt! listed what they thought were the greatest guns of 2011. Usually the greatest guns of any year are ones newest to the market. Like fashion, gun nuts follow gun trends and when something new comes along, especially if it is innovative or cool looking we all jump on the bandwagon.
The recently available Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) Tavor SAR, a bullpup rifle chambered in 5.56 NATO, is creating quite a stir among gun cognoscenti. Actual counter prices
SHOT 2013 is over and while we are still going through all the pictures of the neat guns and gear we saw, I find this year’s show was anti-climatic. It seems companies did not spend time on research and development and the products I found innovative, turned out weren’t innovative at all. Like Boberg’s XR9-S—out for at least a year.

Designed after the infamous Israeli Micro-UZI, IWI, US, Inc. introduces the U.S. civilian version that UZI Pro Pistol. Made in Israel with the American market in mind, the UZI Pro pistol shoots 9mm and has a 4.5-inch barrel. The polymer lower receiver and grip reduce weight. The integrated magazine release button located on the grip makes magazine changes quick. It operates in classic UZI style with simple blow-back operation from a closed bolt with the side-mount cocking handle. The 4-1/2 inch MIL-SPEC barrel is cold-hammer forged CrMoV steel with a 4-groove 1:10 RH twist. The UZI Pro has three safeties—manual thumb, firing pin block and grip safety. The grip safety must be fully depressed for the UZI pistol to shoot. There is a full-length Picatinny rail mounted on the top of the gun, and an under barrel smaller Picatinny rail. The UZI Pro is 9.5 inches overall and weighs less than 4 pounds. The pistol ships with one 20-round magazine and one 25-round magazine, and carries a $1,099 MSRP.
