Discussion relating to the Tavor and the Galil /Valmet firearms families.
Several years ago I started to look for information on building a South African R-4 and R-5 clone. I found most of the information scattered and hard to find. This forum was a great help in finding the information I was looking for and the parts I needed. I have been meaning to post a consolidated...
For starters, I believe we have a bunch of Members with a wealth full of info and picture to share.
jmikesteen, emerz, YOG, jetskrtal , jyuzamas, and others; please if you folk can contribute to build a Galil Library it would really help the Galil community. With the Century Kits hitting the...
I'm sure someone here has a good list to start a Galil "sticky" on parts and accessories suppliers like the one in the Sterling forum. Is there enough info or interest.
If you have an ORF or century galil or have assembled a working rifle on an ORF receiver and have tried to snap an Orlite mag in place you have discovered that it simply cant happen due to a couple of dimensional problems with the ORF receiver. A std steel mag will snap right in but the orlite wont...
I've put up a mirror of the old page with Galil model info . . .

A number of people have asked about AK bolt carriers in the Galils. Here are pics of 2 of my 3 Galils that have them. They are AK47 stainless carriers. The top rifle is a 7.62, the lower is 5.56 which is also shown with top cover off.
Has anyone here tried installing an ALG AK trigger on a Golani or Galil?
I just responded to a post on another forum where the South African seller was selling polymer R4 mags in excellent shape. The seller has great feedback so I took a chance. They are $35 each plus shipping. I committed to buying two (2). I have no relation to this seller or the forum. I am merely...
I came across a MR model 372 with shortened barrel, polymer AR handguard, no carrying handle or biopod but with the correct gas block and bayonet lug. It is clear the barrel was shortened. It is not marked AA or had any milling to remove the Mag Res. markings. It looks to be in good condition...
Anyone have the scoop on when these are going to be released? Thanks in advance.
I'm particularly intrigued by the Galatz in the background as I have never seen that particular variant.
A galil is one of my grail guns but I can't pay galil pricing. Found this golani at a small town pawn shop. he said it is still new and has been at their shop for years. I got him down to $775 Cash but wanted to run it by the forum before I bought it.
Comes with Case and two mags. Unknown...
I wanted to run something by you guys that I recently came across and purchased...been looking for a FA Galil for some time in the $15K range and when this one came up for sale, I was immediately interested. The only conversions that I have seen up to this point were done by Ballistics or...
Well, to be totally honest, I did have "a little" help from Cris Butler, at AK-USA, with the barrel installation, and Jeff Miller, with the receiver prep.
A friend is selling to me a AA galil 392 in excellent condition. There is no factory box or acc so that is out. Can't find any on the auction sites etc. input would be really appreciated. Not trying to steal it etc
Hello all. I finally decided to stop lurking and join. I picked up a few kits from Gunparts and I'm looking forward to building them myself. I've been assembling AR-15s and building AKs for years and a Galil build was something I've always wanted to do.
Everyone loves pictures so here are my...
I was wondering if anyone here could help me identify what gun these magazines go to? I bought these at a local gun show thinking that they would fit a Galil .308. So I have what appears to be 2 AK type magazines for a .308. So the story goes that it was a estate sale and the seller...
If, for some reason I cannot fathom, you want a 12" .308 galil ace pistol, they are now available:
Brace version for +$50 https://gun.deals/product/iwi-galil-ace-pistol-gap51sb-308762-nato-1699-price-match
If anybody has a Galil SAR barrel or a Galil barrel that can be turned down I'd like to buy it.
I have several of the lancer translucent smoke mags for my ar15s. Love the look. I saw that circle 19 makes translucent mags for 223 aks. Could these be converted to work in galils?
So I am looking at picking up a couple of kits. But being a bit of a Nube I don't know much about the parts. I understand that some of the SAR and ARM parts won't work on an AR type rifle. Anyone know of a list of what works on what or what parts are different on the various models?
Anyone know who has alot of galil orlite magazines for sale, was looking to buy atleast 10-12
I am looking for 2. Please let me know what you have and a price.

Just so I can get this straight, doesn't .223 Galil Ace take standard AR-15 mags? I see Numrich is advertising 25-round .223 Galil magazines that look like original .223 Gail AR mags. Am I missing something?
I've been doing some reading and if I understand it correctly, there is little difference between the components for the 5.56 Galil and the scaled up .308 version.
How compatible are the .308 Galil magazines to those of the .308 Vepr? I know the 7.62x39 AK magazines can be inserted in the 5.56...
Since the forum moderators closed my original thread from 2012 (titled: "Got my Galil AR 5.56 Back from Tenngalil"), I'm compelled to start a new one.
In the spirit of sharing, below are a few work in progress photos that Jeff Miller provided to me during the past week. I'm having Jeff rebarrel...
