Radstock drew level shortly after the restart when Mario Matteus prodded the ball home from close range. The hosts grew in confidence and almost went ahead moments later but Joe Smeeton cleared the ball off the line to keep the Gills on level terms.
Radstock dominated the second half and edged ahead with five minutes remaining as Leigh Edward-Samuels was left unmarked and headed home the hosts' second goal.
Gilingham threw everything forward in search of a late equaliser and Gary Bowles managed to connect with a header from a corner. The effort was partially cleared, but broke for Gale - who tapped the ball home to rescue a point for the Gills.
The Gills return to Hardings Lane on Tuesday when they host Hallen.
