Default Gilboa Debut of a new Israeli Assault Rifle


The APR measures 51 centimeters in length, fitted with a 7" barrel as standard, but for special uses it can be configured with a 4.5" barrel

Silver Shadow, an Israeli weapon modification and customization expert unveiled two of its latest weapons the Gilboa 5.56mm compact assault rifle and Silenced Timna high precision sniper rifle at ISDEF 2010.

The Gilboa employs the proven lower receiver of the M-16/M4 design, coupled with a new upper receiver designed by Silver Shadow. The weapon is design to enable operators to employ the weapon effectively at all combat ranges, from zero to 300 mm. The mechanism developed by Silver Shadow uses a proprietary gas operated piston driven system, enabling cleaner and cooler running of the rifle under extreme conditions. The new weapon is configured as a flat-top platform, fitted with multiple rails for mounting optics, lasers and other accessories. Gilboa comes in various sizes and configurations, from the smallest 2.25 kg Automatic Pistol Rifle (APR), the short and standard versions, to the long-barrel 3.55 kg Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR).

The APR measures 51 centimeters in length, fitted with a 7″ barrel as standard, but for special uses it can be configured with a 4.5″ barrel. The ‘DMR’ is a heavily modified Gilboa series automatic rifle designed to provide military and law enforcement operators greater firepower at combat ranges. It is fitted with a heavy match 18″ barrel for better harmonics and has a 7:1 twist rate to permit using heavier projectiles.

Part 2: AK Makeover


Silver Shadow displayed two Israeli modifications of Russian weapons, including the new Timna sniper rifle, based on a modified M76 and the AK-47 conversion kit, turning any Kalashnikov assault rifle into a weapon fitted to operate standard western accessories and optics.


Silver Shadow, an Israeli weapon modification and customization expert unveiled two of its latest weapons the Gilboa 5.56mm compact assault rifle and Silenced Timna high precision sniper rifle at ISDEF 2010.

Modifying the latest Russian M76 sniper rifle into the new Timna Silenced sniper rifle, Silver Shadow took this proven Russian design further, modified it into a western 7.62/51 designed for heavy, high velocity ammunition, enabling military and law enforcement snipers to operate with maximum stealth, even at close range as well as at maximum distance. The rifle is matched with a barrel made by Shilen Rifles, and a modern, full barrel length silencer developed by Silver Shadow which leaves almost no acoustic signature.

Silver Shadow is also offering an upgrade package for the AK-47-74 and X9R, converting any standard Kalashnikov into a modern, modular weapon, that can cerry a wide variety of optics and accessories on standard rail systems. The kit includes replacement tactical adapter or an improved, modular frame replacing the original weapon’s handguard. Once installed, the tactical adaptor or X9-R handguard provides four Picatinny rails for the mounting of different accessories. The kit also accommodates a forgrip with peripheral Picatinny rail mounting telescopic sights, telescopic (M16) or folding stock, ergonomic vertical grip, and more. An improved flash and recoil suppressor can also be added. Accessories include detachable assault bipod, This device actively reduces recoil by 25% and muzzle flash by 29%. It also enables the mounting of grenade launchers, which further reduces recoil.

Part 3:

A pistol can be installed in the RONI in 5 seconds, requiring no special tools, pistol disassembly or gunsmithing.

CAA Tactical displayed the new RONI shell kit at ISDEF 2010. Roni enables the conversion of standard handguns and pistols into an accurate carbine. With the new kit, standard targets can be engaged at 50 meters and beyond, as the kit significantly improves the shooter’s grip, accuracy and therefore, the probability of the shooters’ hitting the target at extended range. RONI shell kits are available for Glock, SIG Sauer, Springfield and Beretta firearms.

A pistol can be installed in the RONI in 5 seconds, requiring no special tools, pistol disassembly or gunsmithing. The design maintains zeroing repeatedly as long as the same handgun is used with the same kit. The weapon maintains the pistol’s cocking handle to operate the weapon, so the firearm is always ready for action. RONI’s enlarged cocking handle fits onto the pistol’s handle, enabling easier operation, and more efficient clearing of jams, performed in the same way as when shooting the pistol by itself. The shell kit comes with extra safety devices, such as a safety shroud to protect the trigger for pistols without a conventional safety devise. And a forward finger guard, protecting the forefinger from the hot barrel shroud.
