    After thinking about it, I ordered a polytech AK bolt carrier. I figure with an AR mag adapter it would an even faster reload and cancel out the need for a left handed charging handle.

    Anyone want to trade their upturned Galil carrier for an AK47 carrier? I'd been looking at the upturned bolt handle for a build I'm working on.

    I am also changing my Golani bolt carrier using a 762 AK carrier, will let you know how it all fits up. There should be no problem between 762 and 223. I managed to remove the pin from the AK carrier quite easily, and will fit the Galil gas piston this week then give it a test

    I managed to fit the AK carrier to my Golani. The biggest job is to ream the pin hole in the carrier to the same size as the Galil carrier. The metal is hardened and without a drill press it's hard work. Once you got the hole reamed all you have to do is screw in the Galil piston, line up the holes and drive the spring pin back in. The required play on the piston is the same as the Galil. I had to grind and slighty re- shape the bottom of the carrier to match the Galil where it slides over the trigger assy. Will test it on the range in two weeks hopefully.

    Have a Yugo M70 bolt carrier coming that I'll use on my FFV890C. I have a spare new FFV piston so I'll not mess with the original bolt carrier and remove the roll pin.

    To what size (in mm) do I need to drill the hole in the M70 carrier? And what size of roll pin should I use?

    On the FFV bolt carrier the roll pin is staked also......do I need to do this on the M70 carrier? What have you other guys done?

    Plan to have my buddy refinish the M70 bolt carrier with the same paint color used here: http://uzitalk.com/forums/showthread.php?t=59005&page=2

    Hey there, I swapped an M70 carrier into my Galil just as you are doing. I ordered a new undrilled Galil gas piston from CNC warrior. I then just turned the new piston into the carrier, marked it and drilled it for the M70 size pin. Now I have my original Galil carrier and the M70 carrier. I did not see any use in staking the pin, because it fit tight in mine. But if the pin goes in pretty easily then you may want to stake it. They are staked to keep them from slipping out and binding in the gas tube.
    I would say put the pin in it, run about 100-200 rds through it periodically checking the pin for movement. If it doesnt move then your good to go. If you plan on dedicating this carrier to your Galil then I would stake it. But if you plan on re-using the piston on your Galil carrier, I would try to get away without staking it. It can't come completely out inside the gas tube, but it can come out and bind up in the gas tube.
    Hope this helps you out.

    Hey friend, I found all the info I needed when I did mine at the link below. The second post will give you what you need to do the pin and gives the measurements. Have a happy new year and let me know if you have trouble finding a 5/32" pin and bit.
