Ohio Rapid Fire receiver, Century kit, 10/35 magazine by me, morepoop4u maglock, built by Jayson at IGF, he did an absolutely outstanding job on this, it's so very nice.

This project has been well worth the time and energy . . . I'm very happy with the way it turned out.

I hope there are a suitable number of 922(r) US-mfgd "compliance parts" in this build.

The OOF receiver, of course, would count as one, and perhaps US follower and spring in fixed mag?

You can build a nice AR for $1600 without any 922R issues. :sleeping:

First off, THAT'S A BEAUTIFUL GALIL!

Second, why the steal-the-thunder and rain-on-someone-else's-parade comment?




I had a Colt Green Label H-BAR Unfired that I traded for a Galil about 25 years ago and I'm STILL happy with the trade.


Different strokes for different folks.

Not everybody is a robotic "AR's Only" gun owner.

I have had 4 Galils and loved them all.

I had 1 AR and traded it with no regrets.

Whatever . . .

People pay that much for a Sig 556 or XCR . . . I would rather have a Galil built by an awesome smith for that price (BTW this isn't built by the monkeys at Century:sleeping:) . . . oh wait . . . I do :D

If you're interested, there's some Galil guys here too:

I want to have a 5.45 x 39 Galil and a 7.62 x 39 Galil built. Maybe I'll use your smith if you're happy with him.

Thanks for sharing.

A little cheaper than I thought . . .

I added everything up, it was just over $1400 not including the Trilux and mount.

I completely missed the fact that this was built by IGF.

I was busy drooling over your beautiful rifle.


That's a good price considering that IGF is considered by many to be one of the top (about) 5 builders in the entire country.

There's plenty of people that consider him #1.

The only 'complaint' that I have heard about IGF is that, if anything, he does builds that are 'too perfect'.


You wouldn't get that 'complaint' from me. I love a build where the fine detail is there. :D


Once again,...beautiful rifle!

You could have tried to find a SAR flashhider.I think they are a bit longer than the standard one and probably would have brought it to legal length with the stock folded

I would post a WTB add on uzitalk.On mine I am going with an ARS muzzle brake and pinned stock so that if I can come up with a non pistolgrip similar to an MM grip then I can use the AR mag adapter and AR mags

Does 922(R) still apply to guns with fixed magazines? I don't think it does...

I agree with Randall...$1600 for a Galil? And a fixed magazine one at that. The Galil is a variation of an AK...maybe I'm just used to paying $199-$299 for AK's (before 2000). Now if this was a "collector's" piece (like a real Israeli Galil with original parts), then $1600 would be worth it...but for a random "parts guns"...dunno...guess if it makes you happy...

I'm glad I have a few RAW AK's. Now converting one of those to a Galil might be worth it...

No, actually it wouldn't, but then you'd need to ask the ATF if the magazine was affixed properly or permanently enough to be exempt, and converting it back to detachable mag status would trigger the need for compliance.

I've owned a real Galil, and while it was nice (and really accurate), and I wouldn't mind getting another some day, but $1600 for a parts pieces gun assembled in the USA shouldn't cost you more than an Aresenal AK build on a high quality parts set. $1600 is way out of line, IMO.

double_action
08-01-2007, 9:17 PM
I suppose you could get it cheaper if it was built by Century, but the quality wouldn't be any where near IGF's . . .

Red Jacket Firearms wants over $1000 for their "Galils" and they're not even milled receivers, Elite Firearms wants $1100 for their Galils and they seem to be hit or miss, . . . an extra $300 for a build by quality gunsmith . . . WAY worth it.

Here's the cost break down:

Receiver: $400
Parts kit: $300
Semi auto selector parts (beacuse I got an older style receiver): $100
Wood hand guards: $40
Misc Mach Work: $20
Hammer Spring: $9
Rivets: $12
Fire Control Group (922r parts): $45
Stock Refinish: $30
Build and Refinish: $475
Shipping to and from gunsmith: $45

Total: $1476

The only way I could have gotten it cheaper would have been to pay less for the build or build it myself (which would have been a disaster).

Personally, I would rather have this than an XCR or PTR91 but that's just me . . . .

Everything is clear as clear can be.

Any confusion, problems and/or misunderstanding is being generated by folks that are creating it on their own because they want it.


People who know Galils already know the score.

Beautiful rifle! Absolutely first class! :)

No disrespect meant to anyone, but, I have to say...

It felt really...creepy...to me.

It seemed like a 'put down' to me. Undermining and intentionally disempowering.

Wholly and completely inappropriate and just really...creepy.









If I see someone that is excited enough about a fine new toy to share it and one of which he is justifiably proud, I like to support him in that moment. Sometimes silently or maybe with a comment.


I am certainly not going to try a 'put down'.


Because that would be sleazy.




BTW, I KNOW GALILS.

It's a beautiful rifle at a reasonable cost especially considering that it was built by one of the very best builders in the US.

It's certainly a nice looking gun.

I was genuinely suprised that it would cost $1600 though.
I am from the old-school as well where AK's and AK varients cost $200 to $300.

If the Galil is to AK's what the Colt is to AR's, that's great that you have the best of the breed.
