Greetings, are you from Steyr-Aug.com?

Welcome to our forum!

Nice collection. I will have to post some pics of my toys...you have good taste.

What model Galil do you have? I was going a build with a Ohio Rapid Fire receiver, but this receiver is absolute garbage. So, I am looking for a Norinco Hunter to do a Galil build on....Copied receiver from Galil and Valmet Hunter.

All the best, CGuns :)

I can send you pictures, but, I have a full machine shop and the amount of help the IMI clone ORF receiver needs is astronomical.
I had gone all out and sourced fancy SADF (South African Defense Force) R4/R5 (That is the model for their version of the Galil, which is built tougher than IMI's for the African bush) parts kits and now, I can't build it on a true Galil receiver. I am still trying to track down a Norinco Hunter as a donor rifle. Agreed, the Valmet and the Galil are Rolls-Royce versions of the AK...and, to some extent, you can add in the Sig 550/551/552...though the 552 is the closest to a direct replica of the Kalashnikov mechanism than the 550/551.

Nice to see you here. I'd love it if you could help get the word around about this site. I have been speaking with Steyr Mannlicher Austria and USA and they are intently watching and listening. Some talk too about releasing another AUG for the civillian market...Would provide a much nicer alternative to an AR-15/FN2000.

You will have to forgive me, I am familiar with the ARM model of the Galil, this is the bipod and long barrel model.

Is your model chambered in .223 or .308?

If it is .223, what are you turning at 100 yards with her?

The 1:12 barrel twist suggests that it is more comfortable with lighter loads, but I haven't really experimented with one and bullet weights.

The Norinco Hunter is 7.62x39 and I believe IMI offers an export version of the Galil in 7.62x39, in addition to 7.62x51 and 5.56x45

You also have to factor in the Flat Top receiver options....those were quite rare. I believe that is the "P" version, for Police...
EDIT: with Shortened Barrel, I think

The USR is basically a sporter version of the Aug A2. If memory serves, it has much more in common mechanically with the A2 than the A1. Save for the extra "thumb web", USR serial number Prefix for ATF and gray furniture, it is basically an A2 flat top...

The Swarovski optics are great, but, with the great amount of sophisticated red dot site systems around and available, these make the rifle even more versatile than with the integrated optics.

Ahhh...now that makes sense.
I have bought parts off of that board before.
Thanks again,

CGuns

P.S. WorldPax, that IS a great resource if you are looking to get an Aug....might want to check it out.
