The wooden accent on the Galil and Ak47 Terrorist weapons have been a hallmark of the Counter Strike franchise since its inception. The decision to drop the wood is causing confusion during gameplay, without adequate differences between Gun Models. The Galil is easily confused with an SMG or the new stubbier M4A4.

We've come to expect wood on the gun since 1999.

    Yes, it is too similar to the m4. Every time I pick up one of the two weapons, I have to look in the inventory to check which one I actually have.

    I think it's too similar to the M4. But maybe this ticket shouldn't be about the accent specifically but just about distinguishing it from the other guns.

    @Rajan, this diagram is missing M4A4 from csgo.
    @TeRMiNaTe, M4 has 30 bullets in magazine while galil has 35. So there is no need to look into inv to check ur weapon. On top of that there are different types on galil. The current one in csgo in fact IS more in type of an smg.

    "Galil SAR

    The SAR carbine variant of the AR is configured with a shorter barrel (332 mm, 13.07in). Due to the shorter barrel a corresponding shorter piston and gas tube as well as a unique gas block are found on the SAR."

    In previous versions of cs we had galil AR or ARM. In csgo looks like we have galil SAR.

    Since topic is about galil its self there is no need for AK in tags.

    CS:S -> Galil AR
    CS:GO -> Galil SAR (more recent model)

    Yet I agree that I miss the wooden texture and I found it hard to see if it's a Galil or a M4A4 (again recent model) when dropped on the floor.
