Check over on the AK Files in the Galil area for the review of mine last year. I really like it although I have not shot it a lot yet. Mine does not appear to have any problems but you can find an awful lot of negative press about them on the web. Hey, it's a Century product, pay your money and take your chances. I would not buy one from somewhere I could not return it and get some help if there was a problem. As to price they are around the $600 range with bayonet lug, maybe less without. Do a Google search that includes the word "Goloni" with "Century", "rifle", etc. and read all you find. Good luck, they are interesting weapons. P.S., mags are pricey but well built. Line some up quick if you jump on the rifle.

Supposedly the ORF receivers were not good, althought I have one and the one magazine I shot through it, it worked fine. The newer ones have a different receiver, and it may or may not be better. I just bought another one from J&G, at this price it is a bargain.

think about $650 for unparked parts kit. But expect to have to do some work.
