How many AR15’s you can by for the price of one of these is not the point. This is an excellent combat rifle. It’s in use currently all over the world. The $1300 price tag is about the same in today’s money as the $700 was back in the 90’s That’s like saying you can by 3 of one type of economy cars for the price of one high end luxury car. The point is that you can now get one of these rifles again that can’t be imported because of these BULLSHIT gun laws we are getting from a… Read more »

Once I pin a time, in the 80s, one could buy a real I’MI Galil for about $700, but they were utterly reliable. One commenter noted the ARM model with the wood for end and bipod was indeed a boat anchor to carry, even though it worked in the sand well as an AK, but far more accurate.

For the same amount of money you could buy two AR15’s and be able to get mags for under $10.00. I don’t see a reason to buy this gun unless you want to hang a price tag on it like Minnie Pearl’s hat.

Would you want two $500 AR’s? These rifles are $999 at Atlantic firearms. I have owned multiple AR’s, an old colt and bushmaster in the 90’s and a couple rock rivers later on. I personally thought “higher end” AR’s were a gimmick until I bought a BCM. It’s amazingly accurate for a light weight rifle and that’s with burner ammo and a chrome lined barrel. I don’t own one of these but it seems like a nice rig for a fair price.

The IMI Galil was/is a great rifle, especially the ARM & AR in 308. But it did have some issues: The issues with the 308 Galil Rifles that I had were: 1) The ARM 308 version was heavy, especially if you had to lug it through the woods for any period of time. 2) Because the mags were proprietary it was hard to find additional mags. They were also very expensive. The last time I checked, an IMI Action Arms 25rd .308 mag NIB cost was north of $100 (I do know that IMI, had an adapter for the 223… Read more »

So many dumb comments here.

Galil is a brand name. There are many models of Galil chambered in different rounds. Google it.

Are you gonna call Springfield Armory and tell them “The Saint” is actually an Armalite? You gonna call Century Arms and say the RAS47 is actually a Kalashnikov? Is the Century C308 actually called a Heckler and Koch? No! Because different brand names. Smfh.

AR15 is a platform
AKM is a platform
Galil is a brand

Price is ridiculous though.

Negative, IMI is the brand, galil is the family of weapons. Take your own advice and look it up.

Retail at Atlantic Firearms is $999. Already sold out. Some just want an alternative to the AR platform and others see older designs like this as an alternative to high priced pre-bans. If only ANY US company could learn how to build a decent/reliable/won’t beat itself to death AK/Galil receiver!

This $1300, overpriced Dreidel launcher can do everything my $499 AR-15 can do, except I have enough left over for a can, extra mags, some hookers and blow.

Price us too steep. For that kind of $ you can get some really good top end rifles. Lower the price so e and it will sell. I like the look and probable functionality of the rifle.

I don’t know why they don’t tap the gas off of the muzzle break. By the the gas hits the muzzle break. The bullet is out of the rifling. So it’s too late for any movement of the operating rod to disturb the shot. That should improve accuracy.

Look up a gas trap

Probably due to timing. The gas needs to eject the shell and feed the next round fast enough for follow up shots. Moving the gas block forward means it will take longer for the gas to drive the piston.

, I would be curious how they handle the gas system issue, but if it is based off of the IWI GALIL, then that will not be a problem. Street value pricing on this rifle will work itself out the longer it out on the market. My best guess is that it will be an accurate rifle. Just guessing though.

Study the “Bang” system for semi-auto operation. I think this is close to what you are suggesting. The U.S. tested this extensively before adopting the M1 Garand. Germany later used a modified version in their G41 rifle. Neither the Bang or the 41 were successful.

If I understand your question correctly, the problem would be that there would not be any pressure in the system to cycle the bolt back. The further away from the action the gas port is located , the time for the gas pressure to act in the system lessens. (Look up dwell time) So if it is at the muzzle- you get no time as the gas goes out the muzzle. Hope that helps

Looks like an Israeli Galil modified to use Mil-std STANAG magazines, similar to the IWI Galil Ace model. A little pricey for what it is, but should be very reliable and accurate.

I don’t think it is a STANAG magazine. It appears to be galil pattern, with a provided tapco mag (30 rd, I believe).

Straight up galil 5.56.

If that’s the case, I would take the actual IWI Galil Ace over this Century clone! Magazine price and availability are important factors when choosing a firearm (for me, at least), especially in a semi-automatic MSR…
