Overview[]

The MAR, also called the Micro Galil, is a reduced-size version of the Galil SAR. Compared to the original carbine, the MAR has a shortened barrel, receiver, piston, gas tube and foregrip. The firearm is fed from 35 or 50-round steel magazines and the 35-round magazines can be clipped together to increase reload speed. An optional magazine adapter inserted inside the magazine well allows the use of standard 20 and 30-round M16 magazines. The lever safety and fire selector (located on both sides of the receiver) has four settings: “S” – weapon is safe, “A” – automatic fire, “B” – 3-round burst, “R” – semi-automatic mode. The barrel has a multifunction muzzle device. The MAR is equipped with a folding tubular metal stock and a flip aperture sight with two settings: 0-300 m and beyond 300 m. The MAR can also be equipped with a night vision device (attached through an adapter mounted to the left side of the receiver), a daytime optical sight (mounted via a receiver cover adapter), iron sights with tritium illuminated dots, a vertical forward grip with integrated laser pointer, silencer and a nylon sling. Upon request, the weapon can be supplied with a bolt catch, plastic magazines weighing 0.164 kg or an enlarged trigger guard for use with gloves.

Appearances[]

The Micro Galil was a weapon used by Castel, when breaking into Bourne's apartment.

Mistakes in the Film[]

When Castel breaks in guns blazing and eventually runs out of ammo, you can hear two to three clicks from the bolt. This is not possible with a real Micro Galil, as it uses a bolt catch, and clacks only once when its ammo is depleted.
