What is the point in buying these guns? As i understand it they are thousands of dollars and dont even perform as well as an ak. This is in no way supposed to offend anybody who has them i was just wondering what the draw of these guns is.

Why says that Galil's don't perform as well as an OK? To many, they are considered the pinnacle of the AK-47 series.

Its something to have in my collection. I have crap load of stuff that I really dont need but I do collect firearms. Its a hobby. If you can get it why not. Plus the value will only go up.

I didn't pay thousands for my Pre-89 Galil AR. I only paid $750 for it... back in 1987!

Mine did cost me $2000.00, but I don't think you'll find one in every safe either.

Like i said i was just curious because i heard they are based of the kalishnakov but didnt know why they are so expensive, but i guess it is true in any case the value will only go up

18" Israeli hammer forged barrel that is MUCH more accurate than the typical AK & its 5.56x45 NATO so decent ammo can be used. Add to that:

-usuable peep sights that do not look like them came off a Model 1898 Mauser (or 98 Mauser)
-better sight radius
-best folding stock
-pistol grip modeled on AMD 65 and

history defending the Jewish state.

BTW, the Galil is relegated to reserve & roadblock duty (except for a few specialized units useing the micro). The IDF (Israel Defense Force) prefers the lighter M16 & M4 or the newer IMI bulpup.

they're certainly a lot more rare than AKs.

And they look badass
