Finally! I finally get a chance to tune the new gas piston system on my IWI Galil Ace 308


Recommended Posts

Weapon Platform:  IWI Galil Ace 308

KNS Precision Gas Piston for AK variants

Reason for purchase:  Recoil reduction and less wear n tear on the AK platform.

 

Purchased in April.  Indiana DNR shuts down all shooting ranges in my area shortly afterwards. 

Going to tune this on Wednesday when I go to pick up my mom to bring her north.  Parents have a shooting range on their farm.

Looking forward to taming the beast.

My go to battle rifle.

It doesn't state it on the site but it takes the Magpul 20 and 25 round magazines as well. It also has a non-reciprocating bolt handle on the left side as well as the traditional rear charging handle.  It has an adjustable gas block built in.

I have made some upgrades over the 2 years I have had it.  Early on I had a DPMS  SASS 7.62 NATO.  It was unreliable and I traded up to the IWI Galil Ace, never looked back.

Fairly decent range for what it was intended for.

 

 How is the Savage?

What optics do you have on it?

It looks very similar to the DPMS I had yet NOT.  The Savage has options not available on the SASS.

Just something about a reach out and touch them rifle.

Yah it's meant for a DMR / hunting rifle, that 20 inch barrel pretty much maxes out the capabilities of the .308.  I got this scope for it because it's the best in the price range I needed in a scope that also is night vision compatible.  I can mount my night vision directly behind the scope or view through the scope from a head mount.

I run that exact same scope on one of my 700s. Awesome glass for the price.
