This project was about one year in the making. It started with buying a Galil kit from Apex. I was then lucky to get a CNC Warrior receiver. Wanting it done right I conacted Jeff at Hillbilly Firearms. He put on to getting a NOS IMI chrome lined barrel and IMI handguards. Grip is from Ronin. Jeff did the nitride finish, build, and the engraving. I think I've fallen for this Israeli girl:shades:

It's an AR with 16" barrel instead of the 18". The ARM has the bipod and carry handle.:beer:

Yup.

Had a chance back in '82 to acquire new ARM's in 5.56 & 7.62 for $800 each...:cry:

Ya that is nice! I like AKs that look like functional business not like someone stopped at the bolt on shop & attached everything plus the kitchen sink on it.

You might want to check on your rear handguard retainer. It should be sitting higher with the two springs on the handguard actually touching the front of the receiver not hanging below the receiver.

Other than that, that's an awesome build. Once of these days, I'll send my Galil kits off to Jeff at Hillbilly Firearms

Its on correct. There are two square knobs that fit into the rear handguard retainer and hang below the front of the receiver. The two small springs are above the knobs inside the front of the receiver.:beer:

My bad. It just looked like it was off and at an angle. Oh, the joys of declining vision courtesy of diabetes. LOL

Awesome rifle.

I'm not sure about the full scoop, but basically its a higher tolerance Kalashnikov with Belgian style para stock designed by Israel after their experiences using FALs and the Uzi against AKs in the late 1960s. Some of its features come from the Finnish Valmet. There are 5.56 and 7.62 models.

I've got most of the makings for a 7.62x51 Galil on hand, seeing your build makes me think I ought to get her built. Very, very nicely done :D:beer:

What 922r parts does she have ? I need to up my game and get this done. Had a couple of Galils in days long past, I really liked them. The only big gripe I had was the inability to easily mount any optics. Had the side mount, but it put the glass up awful high, and interfered with working the charging handle. Kinda missed a bho, but that was minor.

Beautiful Galil Bro!!! I LOVE the Izzy markings. I wonder if Mr. Hillbilly can engrave those on mine?
I have 2 Golani's [I know, I know, Century SUCKS!!!]
But they actually shoot VERY well, & I think they look Great, even if they were put together by the angry beavers.
I think the Galil is the perfect "sport utility rifle" [I refuse to use the term A.W.]
Everything from the folding stock to the up-swept charging handle is just perfect. Haven't shot mine in almost a year, gonna have to take them out next range session.

http://www.apexgunparts.com/galil/imi-galil-ar-barrel-18-1-9-twist-new-us-made-922-r-compliant.html

The original barrels are 18 in and 1 in 12 twist. However, this US barrel is 18 in and 1 in 9 twist.
Seems to me that the faster twist would be better than the original for a current build.
