Owners of IWI Galil Ace models, in either 7.62x39 mm or 5.45x39 mm, are able to easily replace the gun’s plastic trigger housing with an upgraded aluminum design from KNS Precision.
According to GunBroker analytics, the best-selling semi-automatic shotgun sold on their platform was the Tavor TS12 from IWI US.
