We just finished shooting video footage of Dan Shea, Editor-in-Chief of Small Arms Defense Journal. He took us through the history of the Galil family of firearms and discussed the unique nature of these Micro Galils Lewis & Black just imported from Israel.

There's some great historical coverage of all the Galil variants, including some pretty esoteric stuff that's probably not commonly known. He also addresses the interchangeable parts issue between the MAR and the SAR/AR/ARM variants.

Dan and his firm, Phoenix Defense, were instrumental in facilitating this opportunity for Lewis & Black to acquire and import these MARs to the US.

Dan’s vast knowledge of small arms, both domestic and foreign, his relationships with the actual people responsible for their development and his experiences in doing so, have provided a truly unique opportunity to further one's understanding of this particular weapon platform. Watching him was reminiscent of a hip college professor lecturing freshman lemmings. This guy is a walking encyclopedia of all things that go bang.

We'll be posting it early next week on both our website and our YouTube channel and will provide links to both locations then.

Future videos will include:
1. A comprehensive demonstration of one of our imported Micro Galils at our range facility along with an SAR, detailed in the above video....yes, we'll do the obligatory "mag dump".
2. Demonstrating one of our Jeff Miller Signature Series MAR builds at our range.
3. Demonstrating an MAR "Tactical" variant in 7.62x39 that Jeff and I concocted showing how our "multi-caliber" receiver, combined with these Micro kits, can be readily configured for a caliber other than 5.56 NATO.
4. Building out and demo'ing a select fire version with our receivers, kits and barrels....again, calls for another "mag dump".

We're anticipating you'll have numerous follow up questions for Dan stemming from this video. You may post them via our website and we'll look to have him answer them in a follow up video.

Be Safe,
