Why does it seem like all the pics of Israeli soldiers show them with M-16s and not the Gallil?

The Israelis decided they like M16s better? Scott

They get the M16s from us for free, or at a really good price which is better than paying for their own factories to make the Gallil. Mike

Do the Israelis still have all those M14s that were given to them during the 1973 War? John

I doubt they gave them away. Either sold to make a buck or stockpiled to arm civilians.

Teh M14s are offered for sale occasionally in SGN. I can't remember what company has them. But they also have various IDF sniper rifles for sale Scott

They've put scopes and bipods on them. Saw a picture in one of the news magazines.

forest hit it right on the head - the israelis get aid money - but it's like a credit card to the company store. they get us dollars - but must buy from u.s. mfg's. i think they like the m16 most due to it's lighter weight.... when i was there in 99 - i'd say 98% had m16s of various types were seen, only a handful of galils - mostly well used and being carried by non-infantry. steve
