JRA Gallant Rifle, 5.56 NATO, S/A, 18" BBL, W/ Bayonet Lug, Side Fold Stock, Compensator, Battle Worn Model, Wood Handguard, 30 Rd Mag, Rifle Case



Gallant Rifle by James River Armory 5.56 NATO Caliber - Semi-Auto With Side Fold Stocks, Assembled from Original Israeli Galil Parts Sets back to original turn in standards in a Semi-Auto version. Features a brand new U.S.-made billet steel receiver and new U.S.-made barrel. Note - A Bi-Pod Is Not Included ( * See Below ). One of the challenges that JRA faced in refurbishing these amazing parts kits, is that, unlike the polymer furniture versions, many of the wood fore-end models had battle wear to the wood that prevented them from being refinished back to like-new status.  Although all of the wood was serviceable, some of the dents, scratches, or chips, were too deep to sand out without being noticeable, plus, there are grooves in the original wood handguards that simply will not allow for heavy sanding. As such, and because they were getting requests for a more authentic-looking turn-in version anyway, they have decided to do all future wood furniture models in what they are calling a battle-worn finish. That is what the rifle being sold under this SKU represents. This model duplicates the appearance of the original Galil rifles that were retired from military service in 2010. In order to qualify as a Battle-Worn rifle, the parts kit had to retain at least 80% of the original finish. JRA then parkerized the new receiver and barrel of each one but left the remainder of the rifle largely as received in order to retain the original look and feel of these amazing pieces of history. Some buttstocks may come painted with fluorescent paint on the bottom of the stock, which was used by the soldiers in the field to identify teammates and squads.  Some of these firearms also have the original Israeli stampings on the top of the receiver that have been left intact as well. Shades of wood may vary and please know that we have seen some trench art as well as minor dings, dents, and digs on the wood fore-ends from their over 20 years of use in military service as well.  

These rifles feature Brand New U.S. Made Gen II Billet Steel Receivers with the original Israeli markings painstakingly reproduced, as well as a beautiful Shield Of David logo on the rear of the receiver as you can see in image 7 above. All rifles also feature new U.S.-made barrels with a twist rate of 1 in 7. Each rifle ships in a nice heavily padded rifle case for maximum protection, value, and convenience. The carry cases may vary in type from order to order based on availability, but they will always work great for carrying and storing the rifle as well as adding tremendous value to the purchase. Each rifle ships with 1- 30 round Tapco magazine. This model comes with the original wood forend and a deluxe pistol grip by Phoenix Technology.

Rifles ship with a U.S.-made Tapco magazine but original Israeli 35 round steel magazines fit and function flawlessly as well. This is really nice since the original mags are plentiful and inexpensive. In fact, you can find them on our site HERE! 

All Gallant rifles are manufactured with an original Galil style optic mounting port. New, U.S.-made optic mounts can be seen and purchased HERE!

Note - Accepts M16-style M7 bayonets. No military style rifle is complete without a bayonet! Bayonets are available for purchase HERE! 


Important Note - Our parts kits came to us from Israel in several different configurations. Some with wood furniture, some with polymer furniture, some with bayonet lugs, some without.... etc...  Choosing your Gallant rifle under this particular item number will get you our original wood handguard " Battle Worn Finish "  Gallant rifles with the bayonet lug and handguards designed to accept the Bi-Pods ( Bi-Pod Not Included ).
