What would you need to do to shorten a barrel on a galil (looking more at the South African style) Technically I guess it makes it a sbr but I'd still like to know the process :D

Pull the barrel (unscrew it), remove the gas block and other hardware, and turn on a lathe to turn down/rethread the front/

Tenngalil over at uzitalk.com is recognized ast he best guy to do this, his company is called hillbilly arms.

If you want a shorty with going SBR, have it chopped down to 14.7" and have the flash hider peramanently attached, gets you pretty close to the look of a Galil SAR.
