Was the South African R4 a licensed clone of the Galil?  One of my supervisors was a SA police superintendent and he spoke very highly of them.

Vektor made the R4, R5 and R6 versions under license. They're slightly modified versions of the Galil.

Plus quality galil clones are expensive. Its either pre-89's or ORF builds.



The other option is CAI. And people that have owned century guns usually say "never again"

I've wondered for years why the Galil didn't take off in popularity.



Posted Via AR15.Com Mobile




they're heavy as hell for a 5.56 carbine, and mags are expensive.
They are heavy. The mags aren't too expensive around 20 to 30 each, unless your thinking about the 308 version those are about 100 each.

I seem to have gotten lucky with my CAI Galil.  It's an odd duck, too.  It's my understanding that the AR type Galil with wooden handguard is not common.

Buy a torch cut receiver from APEX for all of $15, google TurboThis, send him a kit with the receiver, he will weld up the receiver and assemble the kit and do an awesome job and you will have a factory IMI Galil for under $1000.

Besides century and "Elite" (I think is the name) has anyone tried making quality galis US at an affordable cost?

I don't know if it's possible, but I'd sure like one.  I realize it won't do anything for you that an AR piston gun in 556 won't likely do better...but fuck it, I'd buy one.

He's on theakforum.net and don't waste your money.  They are torch cut through the front lugs and cannot be safely welded back together.  I bought one several years back from Apex and emailed him with pics.  He explained this problem to me and that it was a no-go.  Unless something has changed since then.  ETA: If it has please let me know, I would love to have an "almost" real galil

ETA #2: Those have been instock at apex for years, likely because of this very problem.  They have had usable torch cut receivers for Ak pattern guns in the past, which sell out VERY quickly
