This is not a safety issue recall.

Iwi US , the United States subsidiary of Israel Weapon Industries Ltd., is advising us they're recalling those Galil ACE GAP39 pistols that have a receiver with a 3-pin/3-hole fire control group. Although the weapon does not fire automatically, the BATFE has decreed a 3-pin fire control are by definition machine gun receivers.

You gotta send 'em back or replace them.

All FFL or consumer owner of a GAP39 must return their firearm to IWI US inc. immediately for a full refund or opt for a replacement 2-pin pistol within 120 days. For full information on how to obtain your replacement or refund, read the instructions here.

Says IWI,

FFL Dealers and Consumers should contact IWI US, Inc. at (717) 695-2081, email[email protected] or write the company at: 

IWI US, Inc.

Attn. GAP39 Recall
P.O. Box 126707
Harrisburg, PA  17112
IWI US, Inc. will issue a Return Authorization number (RA#) and will issue a “Call Tag” for UPS to pick up the firearm(s) at no cost to the FFL Dealer or Consumer. Returned firearms must have a RA# or they will be refused.
Please allow up to 4 weeks to receive your refund.
The 7.62x39mm semi-auto weapon was just re-released on a large scale earlier this year. The then-modernized Galil ACE is based upon IMI's original Galil rifle first developed in the late 1960’s, with inspiration drawn from the Russian AK-47 and the Finnish Valmet RK 62.
