Hey guys, I'm not much into building AK variants, and from what I gather, trying to build one of these would be biting off a bit more than I can chew. Not to mention I am a college student, so I would have no way to build one anyways.

What I was wondering is if anyone sells complete Galil's, refinished and ready to go right out of the box.

I was also wondering where to find magazines at a good price.

Thanks for helping a galil newbie :-)

There are several gunsmiths that will build a kit for you. Stay away from the Hesse builds that are out there. Your only other option is pre-ban.

You could also purchase a post-ban parts rifle that has been built by a reputable smith.

I haven't seen too many of those for sale though.

I agree. The word is that the Hesse receivers aren't bad though, just that Hesse's assembly quality is horrendous. You would be better off to pay the extra cash and find a one that at least wasn't built by Hesse.

Thats the only problem...I can't find any other receivers.

Any clues?

Unfortunately, no. Hesse's production seems to have stalled for an unknown period of time (last I checked). If you want to talk to someone who may know, I suggest you talk to Harlan @ FAC.

Friends don't let friends by HeXXe......

FAC is pretty good at providing customers with what they want.....just after they steal the idea from others......ask Harlan where they came up with the idea for the AMD-65 barrel extension........

Remember Vulcan=Hesse. Just a new name.

Has anybody tried a VEPR .308? While nowhere near a Galil, it looks closer than the Saigas.
