Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Galil Clone

#1 Post by schmedly » Tue Jun 06, 2017 11:06 pm

My century Goloni ( Galil clone ) It came from century but has been a good rifle for me . i did polish the feed ramp and reset one of the roll pins but for 1/3 the money of an IWI Galil I am a happy camper ! That rifle has several things going for it , 35 round mags in steel and the best triger of any of my black rifles . It also has a very nice folding stock that locks up tight with no play . It is now wearing a single point sling that makes much handyer . it is a little heavy due to it milled reciever .

Nice rifle.
Question?
Why the IDF abandoned these guns and replaced them with M16, mostly with the M4?
When I was in Israel a decade ago, I saw just the M4 and M16A2 and very rarely some old M1 Carbine. I did not see any Galil. Tavor in that time has not been widely operational.

The US Government gave the IDF a BUNCH of M16 rifles around the time that the Galil was being fielded . It came down to money , they got the M16 for way less than they could build the galil . The Galil was put into service for veh. crews and anyone needing a small rifle ( folding stock ) as a back up .
