    Question How bad was I ripped off for my Golani?

    I was drinking and BSing with friends about a month ago and I ended up buying a used Golani Sporter 5.56 for $1250. It has the Caspian Arms receiver and was not one that was subject to recall. I know impulse buys like this are stupid and you should always do your research. I haven't fired the gun yet, but after more reading about the Golani I'm feeling horrible and I'm fairly certain I got ripped off badly. I plan to take the rifle to a professional gunsmith and have him do a full inspection.

    How badly did I get ripped off? Should I cut my losses, sell the gun for whatever I can get, and put the money towards having someone like Hillbilly Firearms build a custom Galil clone on a CNC Warrior or similar receiver and something like an Apex parts kit? Or should I keep the gun, give it a fair chance, and maybe revitalize it a bit and some optics or something?

    Any help/advice will be appreciated. I'm a first time AR/AK buyer and I learned an important lesson. Feel free to help ease my pain and suffering by sharing any personal rip-off stories you may have.

    The Golani sporter has a decent reputation at least the Century built ones do

    If it works it works...

    Load it up and shoot it. If it gives you problems and you can't figure them out, then you take it to a gunsmith.
