    Can anyone ID this weapon? A squad automatic weapon based on a Galil rifle? Some other sort of light machine gun? Just curious.

    It is the Israeli version of the 5.56mm FN-Minimi, called Nesher or Mini-Maag in Israel.

    Also called the Negev in some books I've seen here in the states.

    I don't think the Negev is in any way related to the M249/Minimi, though, other than being a similar type. The Negev is an IMI in-house design, I believe.

    The weapon in the photo is indeed a Negev, though.
