Galil is awesome, but heavy, but I like it...better than FN - C1A1's! and your right the Valmet is same as Galil. IMI used Valmet Receivers in first production runs.
Tavor is growing on me..slowly, but cool,
But the coolest Israeli weapon to come around in awhile is the IWI Negev LMG...now that's cool! Small enough to be a Rifle, yet large enough to be a light machine gun...best concept put together yet!
I have googled every image of it I can find and even tracked down the patients for it that I could find. I search this thread specifically to get more pics of it. Would love to get pics of the Trigger mechanism as its the only thing I haven't been able to track down in detail. I posted on Israel Military Forum too looking for it but no response.
