Lists on the subject

The IMI Galatz (or Galil "Sniper") is a sniper rifle that was developed by IMI for the Tzahal in the mid-1980s . It is a modified version of the Galil AR in the 7.62 × 51 mm NATO caliber . In contrast to the assault rifle , the Galatz can only fire single fire, has a heavier barrel, the standard buttstock has been replaced by a fully adjustable one and the bipod has been attached in front of the magazine well. In the older models, the rifle scope is attached to the side of the rifle so that the rear sight can also be used.

It can also be equipped with a silencer and two Picatinny rails . As a result, the position of the bipod can now be freely selected and the rifle can be equipped with a variety of optics. The upper Picatinny rail extends back over the dust cover and a mounted telescopic sight now blocks the sight line of the rear sight. Unlike the standard AR rifle, the “Sniper” has a cheek rest and an adjustable and foldable shoulder rest as well as a ground spur .
