Exclamation Very special and rare 4 position SABR Galil micro PDW, offered to an Offr

Hi folks,

Not sure where to post but i got this Special Galil walking in my gunroom.

Aside that it has a burst option(uncommon) it also has an inscription that is particular weapons was donated to a high ranked Israeli officer.

This thing is soooo small, it hurt my eyes. It's a H&K MP5 size!




























So, what you think...

Nice!

I'm guessing that is an early model, based on the handguards, gas block, FSB, and the stock.

That’s very cool. I wonder if it was for security detail work. Something one could hide easy.

That's what I thought too, but it has a 3/95 date code.

When did they change to that cool folder design? Looks much more efficient and compact than the old Galil stock that was taken from the FAL.

The stock seems to flips out its seeting fast. No locking device like a FAL M3 or FNC M3

The muzzleflash is, hmm, at least you can say impressive.
The soundblast is horrible loud.

I would stick with my MP5 as a PDW

It's the same in France, and much of the rest of Europe. Jews are murdered with alarming frequency, and it's increasingly unsafe for White Christians, as well.

Eli
Eli, you go a sensitive way here.

if you want i give you my opnion and my 2 cents but be adviced, i stick up a mirror too.

A) Let me tell you that every religious sign is no longer popular in the local population.
Not the muslim in his long dress, not the Indian sik wityh his tulband, not the nuns/priest and not the jew in his outfit. All this has become odd in the streets. The general opinion in Belgium is " everybody was born innocent till somebody started to lie about a god". Churches are empty... So white christs beeing attacked? WTF, fake news? As long as everybody keeps his religious stuff at home, nobody gives a f$ck here.

B) The spokesman of the Jewish community seems to be a worldchampion in complaining, asking, refusing things. I simply never heard any positive initiative they achieved. Sounds hard, and several times they are 100% right to complain but they way how they do it, geessss.


Let start with a small sad but true story i know at first hand since i'm a paratrooper Offr : https://www.nieuwsblad.be/cnt/dmf20150125_01492288

After the attacks in Brussel, we got the words to protect sensitive points in Belgium. Including airfields, nuclearplants, but also Brussels, Antwerp...

So, my boys are protecting in the Jewish quarters+synagoges. The winter in 2015 was just f$cking cold. Our army has NO scarfs. Standing houres in the street, our guys just put scars on, they way they do it all the time. They wore'l in Africa, in Europe, everwhere they go.

The Jewish community put complaint to our boys feeling offended by the fact they wore "Arafat scarfs". WTF? As a result, our boys could continue there protection mission in the Jewish quarters freezing there nose off.

Ok, i understand the fact those scarfs are sensitive on newyears eve in Jeruzalem placed on an empty chair. But here, its just a popular warm scarf.
Now, demanding not wearing the scarf is one thing. But there are ways to make you popular, or unpopular.
What if the jews community asked to turn in there "Arafat scarfs" and trade it agains a green warm neutral scarf. That would make you the hero of the day and nobody is pissed off again.

Just plain stupid short seeing vision.


C) The carnival story. The Carnival in Aalst is world heritage festival. It's a great 3 days party with tons of beers and they all make fools out of the world.
So, if you read this story only you might feel upsad or offended (again). But let me tell you that NOT a single community or person is safe for the carnival.
The list of presidents, kings, politicians is endles. We have seen rows of Christian priest with boys in front of them like the kids would give"m head( major funny sights). We saw the popes, Chinese, Kozaks, Muslim terrorists, ... all in stereotype positions, masks and so on.

Nobody complains since you know that if you end up in the parade, just did stupid things of made a fool out yourself. It's just a festival that ventilates the poor peoples interpretation of the actual world situation.
Don't judge it till you seen it.

D) It looks like the jewish community only have eyes for there own problems.
The moment you mention the unrightfull way they treat the Palestinian civilians, the illegal wall they build. The occupation of property and so on.

If you mirror that, it take less then five minutes before they start to (ab)use they word "holocaust"...


Before you start thinking Paco hates jews, i'm not. I teach warhistory to 15-16 year old kids. I tell about the real naziholocaust, the Nurenberg charters about who could marry a jew and who's a jew. It's the saddest period ever in history. But i also tell the kids about life in Palestina. I tell'm that some lessons are forgotten and some people have become that what they hated 70 years ago...

Very sensitive subject. It just depends what side you'r standing on.
I choose not the choose. I just observe...

Now wait for the storm ; )

Paco, how come Pate Foie Grais is perfectly fine to raise, but kosher slaughter has been banned in Belgium. Clearly a double standard, politically correct acceptable double standard. BTW remember full well that those Palestinians started their hatred of the Jews during WWII when the Mufti fully aligned himself with the NAZIs. Clearly Belgium is no place for the Jews. 1st the diamond trade in Antwerp, then the medical field. Let the North Africans fill that vacuum. They will be very proud of the Arafat scarves.

Hi, Pretty heavy in English for me to feel were this one is going to.
Also, no clue what kosher slaughter looks or taste like. For sure there are regulations how Muslims want to slice there sheeps. Can't be done anymore just like that. They tended to kill some sheeps in there garden on some holiday, no longer allowed. Same for a Belgian farmer, they can't slice there pigs no longer just like that...

I think in fairness to our friend paco if the socio/political discussion is to continue it should do so in politics or the like not another of his great threads. Telling someone else all about the woes of the country that they actually live in often makes the teller look ill-informed. Like "all guns being banned in Australia", I have heard my share.

I seem to remember reading somewhere that Belgians were second only to the Dutch in their efforts to hide Jews from the NAZIs, and help many of them escape to neutral countries like Sweden in WW2. Palestinians have some legitimate claims to the issue of Israeli settlements. That being said, importing any quantity of muslims from anywhere and making them a sizeable minority of your population is really not smart, and not fair to your native population. Jews may be a minority and maybe have some cultural views that come off as annoying, but they have been there for hundreds of years since being driven from they homelands.....and at they dont have a habit of randomly exploding in the middle of a crowded cafe or concert. Lefitsts are stupid no matter what nationality.

Truer words have NEVER been spoken.

Let's cut this crap out & let this thread be about Paco's newest toy.
His collection is 2nd to none, well maybe the Imperial War Museum in London can compete with him but none of us surely can.

BTW, Awesome pics as usual Paco. Thanks, Mick
