I think I would,I'd much rather have this one with an Israeli made reciever than anything built from a kit on a US made reciever.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 10:47:19 AM EDT
Yes, I would if I had the cash.

Nice gun....

Though I can remember buying my Galils (1 ea .223 AR, and 1 ea NIB .308 ARM) for only a couple hundered more each... But that was 1998.

I know,I gave 1500.00 for my Galil AR back in 1987,but you can't buy the parts and reciever for that now.

It's a nice looking gun, to me though, Galil's just look better with a folding stock. EDIT...thats what I get for not reading the ad, I'd say go for it

how hard is it to get night sigts on this ?
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 12:02:18 PM EDT
also what would I feed a 1/12 barrel?
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 12:04:12 PM EDT
55 grain
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 12:12:19 PM EDT
All the 55gr you can get ahold of. Its not that big of a deal.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 12:14:05 PM EDT
and are teh night sites hard to find?

Yes, standard .223 rem loads are all 55gr.. The 62 grain stuff is normally allot more expensive or harder to find.

I'm sure there is but the military Galils had the selector set up that way.



yeah I brought that up before. the improted ones they fixed. go figure. I'm guessing that with the 89' ban, the sporters were different than regular civilian versions.... kind of like, we'll do what we have to to bring these in, but we can do it with military style parts instead now.... also maybe that reduces teh foriegn parts count cause the hinged selector could be more? I've read about this but never found an answer.....
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 1:36:22 PM EDT
A real Galil is very high on my list if I ever have the cash to become a collector. If it's the real deal, then the price is good. If I had the cash, I'd buy it, but I don't .
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 2:07:52 PM EDT
I've never seen a semi Galil with the military selector, sporter or otherwise. Looks lika a parts gun to me. What does the other side of the reciever say?

It is a parts gun. IMI receiver witha new 1/12" twist barrel and the US parts needed.

Still a good price if it was put together correctly.



yeah, it's a sporter converted to regular config. looks nice thgouh...
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 3:04:38 PM EDT
I say go for it! I want one.

That's the key. Galil's can be tricky to barrel and headspace properly. For $1600 it'a a steal if you want a shooter not a collector.

barrel was put on by Piece of History Firearms in Tucson - any good?

Are you going to buy the Galil or am I going to have too? Just kidding,but if you don't secure it,someone will!

my only concern is the lack of night sites and the fokokt left side selector. Looks nice, was done by good people, seller is VERY good in terms of emails, so the stars are aligning. I've budgetted myself 3K for new toys this month and I'm trying to fit in a V93, this galil, and either a PTR or a Kimber grand Raptor. tough decision coming I tellz ya!

There may be one out there,but I have'nt seen a 93 clone with an HK spec reciever.All of the ones I've seen had tight mag wells and the buttstocks don't seem to slide with HK precision.No doubt about it,I'd go Galil.The night sites are a minor issue.

I absolutelyfuckinghate cleaning a roller locking delayed blowback weapon based on the Vorgrimmler system. I've had 2 HK 91's and 3 quality clones thereof and they are the worst clean up I've ever experienced. You think an AR is dirty, that it throws shit back in the receiver???

Try a system that flutes the chamber so that the spent case is floated on the gasses and when the bolt opens it blows the case out, with the gasses and carbon right back into the action. At least with an AR the upper is reasonably easy to clean. The HK system doesn't make it easy to get in there and clean it.

The saving grace is that the action is very reliable. It works when dirty.

Now, a 9mm version isn't too bad since there isn't that much carbon, but a rifle caliber.....no thanks.

The only negatives I've heard about the Vectors is that some of the receivers have tight mag wells.

Yes the HK system looks cool and is reliable, but man I hate the clean up.

Give me a Kalashnikov.



I hear you. Just too damned tempting at 999$ for a new vector v93. ...... and yeah they look cool. 'specially next to my hk94.
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 6:11:02 PM EDT
If you go the V93 route,I know a quick fix for the tight mag well,but I'm still recommending the Galil!
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 6:14:32 PM EDT
Link Posted: 1/3/2006 6:21:11 PM EDT
LOL, ,No,I've use a 4" vise with oversized jaws,put the lip inside of the mag well and slowly open it up.Do a little then test fit a mag,its worked on a couple different SW3 recievers.I finally sold all my US reciever G3s and found a Portuguese reciever.

I'm convinced on teh galil... I'm gonna grab it.

My 223 collection thus far AR 16" (tripower, aimpoint 3x), AR 18" (IOR 2-12), KKF M17s (Acog), SAM-5 (kobra), and now the Galil (iron sights only for this desert fighter). It's gonna be hard to resist a HK or V 93 to round out the collection.
