Best place to check is Gunbroker.com

Many seem to sell in the $2,500-$3,000 range and getting more expensive all the time.

If you want one. Get it as soon as you can or it may end up costing you $4,000. :D

I have a .223 Galil and a .308 Galil. I just love them. Mine are IMI.

There are some available from Ohio Rapid Fire that are built with US made receivers and compliance parts and the rest with IMI parts. Some of these have been great and others are reported to have had problems. Perhaps they have worked the 'kinks' out by now.

There are also offerings by Vulcan. ****AVOID THESE!****

If it were me, I would pay the price and go Magnum Research or IMI.

About 4 years ago I sold 2 NIB .223 IMI Galils.

...shoulda kept 'em. ;)

Why is that?

There have been many, many, many, many, many reports of crap work done by Vulcan.

This has been over a period of years.

Getting a Galil will cost you a significant amount of money.

Why take a chance?

BTW, Vulcan is a relatively new 'incarnation' of Hesse.

Do a Google search on Vulcan and also Hesse and you will see what I mean.

You may want to check out the reviews and owner comments on any number of gun boards.

Just ask about the quality of Vulcan and/or Hesse products.

I believe it will simply your decision process.

I have been looking at Galils, and will buy one ASAP. The only places I have found them being produced are Vulcan and Rapid Fire.

Are Rapid Fire any good?

I provided that information in a previous post in this thread.

You may want to check numerous gun boards for the reputations of Rapid Fire (generally very, very good) and Vulcan/Hesse (generally very, very bad.)

Also, check for warranties/guarantees.

Hope this helps.

BTW, if you get a good one, there's a good chance you will want to hang on to a Galil forever.

You should check-out Auction Arms site as generally, prices are less there. If you would like tips on strategies to negociate a LOW bid or get an auction ended early with a reasonable Buy It Now price for either Gun Brokers or AA let me know. I also have a Large amount of data on Best prices and sources for ammo, parts, mags etc. If you want, I can search ALL know sites for good deals on the guns as well as accessories.
