    Default Old and new build

    Here is a pic of a Galil I built using a homemade receiver - Flats with trunnions made from demilled receiver pieces. Built the homemade receiver 4 plus years ago. Below the "old school build" is the CFS kit with a Century Arms receiver (I believe a Rapid Fire product) quickly slid together. Seems like it shouldnt be to tough to build - need to buy .223 headspace gauges. Also anyone know who is selling new handguards/grips or other US compliant Galil parts. For those wondering about the kits condition - used - looks like more wear from carry than firing. All the parts will be reparked anyways so its not that important to me.

    Those look nice.

    Here's some gauges, the price seems good too.

    Tokarev,

    Sweet builds!!!!! The reciever parts look sorta like a weld pack that I've seen here for sale (a year or so ago) The reason I ask is they have notches in them just like the weld packs that were for sale. Was that your pattern? I am not familiar with the Galil does it have a small upper rail like the ak? if so how did you form or build it???????? thanks in advance for the info

    Default galil build

    Coils - thanks for the lead on the gauges - just bought go - no/go - and field gauges. Way over due considering all the AR builds I have done.

    Yes - the 4 piece receiver flats are mine - I sell them too. Basically using demilled receiver stubs machined down to make trunnions I welded it all together using standard AK 5.45 rails/ejector.

    I like the looks of your receiver better than the store bought one!

    The top one in the pic is BAD A**, kinda looks like something an old school SWAT member would carry, I'm all about the tactical look.

    Very nice looking, and great job on the build!

    A Galil is really the only other rifle I want which I don't have yet.
