The Galil series of weapons is named after Yisrael Galil and is in use by forces in many countries all over the world. Its design borrowed heavily from the AK-47, with the gas diversion system significantly modified to reduce the overall recoil force of the rifle in automatic mode. This training book has been developed from the ground up for beginners who know little about Airsoft AEG technology. As part of our Airsoft Technology Self-Paced Training Series, this book gives an introduction to the performance elements of a Galil/AK AEG. The primary goal of this book is to explain the various AEG performance concepts in very simple language. We believe that this book and its support materials have everything you need for an informative, interesting, challenging and entertaining Airsoft educational experience.
