The Galil is a different sort of sniper rifle. The Isreal defense department took the standard Galil assualt rifle, rechambered it to 7.62x51mm NATO, added a slick little adjustable stock that folds for transport, mounted the bipod to the front of the reciever (as opposed to the barrel), added a two stage trigger and mounted a scope on the side of the reciever to avoid mounting to the stamped reciever on top the rifle. I have yet to get the opportunity to use this rifle, so I do not have a concrete opinion. My first impression is that the rifle will perform like an accurized assualt rifle, and not like a true sniper rifle. But of course I can be proven wrong.
