Same boat here. I did the “contact us” thing and PMd Jen here on the FALFiles about the no email to my iCloud account for verification. Any help that admins/mods here can provide will be much appreciated.

people just can't stay out of the ghetto, can they?

The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

In the meantime, post a question. I would be more then happy to share any knowledge or insight I have gained through my experiences with Galils. I also have a jooish friend that was an armorer in the IDF. It would be my pleasure if I can help you in any way.

The Nails reference is an AK files inside joke. He is a thorough dude and a good person at heart in reality. I am more of a lurker around here, apparently I frequently post in the "ghetto". You can take the home boy out of the hood, but you can't take the hood out of the home boy. So please, post up any questions and by the time my AK ban is over and I can make a request, you will already be a member.

I actually got one of the Numrich parts kits when they were on sale for $250 it looks very very nice. My question is I had a bunch of barrels from Sarco that can be cleaned up. However they are not virgin. My question is should I ditch the non virgin barrel and order a virgin one?

You might have a tough time timing it to the correct headspace if you aren't using the original receiver with the non-virgin ones, of course it can't hurt to try them.

The real question should be do you want to break in a virgin? or do you prefer experience.

I like to keep things as original as possible but a few factors to consider are A) condition of the barrel, B) getting the correct headspace, C) the barrel's od vs the front trunnion's id, D) your knowledge of building an AKM, E) the tools you have available. I would spring for a new original barrel that matches the kit, but this is my preference. US barrels are good and we can have a long debate about that topic which has been whipped like a dead horse. In the end it's a parts kit. The reciever will never be original. Without me visually inspecting the used barrel you have I can't say use it. In the end you don't want to be the guy that does it right because he does it twice if you have a nice clean matching parts kit. If you were building a bfpu or khyber pass gun maybe.

Very eloquently stated. I know which I would prefer. Now if I could only go back in time 20 years......
