Ok so I was thinking about building an AK or a galil, I know what I want to do is build both but at the moment that is not an option. So I was wondering what some of the pros and cons are of each of the rifles.

Pro- No trunnions to rivet, one less US part needed
Con-You have to headspace and populate the barrel(assuming your akm kit came with an installed barrel as you mentioned in your other thread.

Go with the Galil.

Apex has Galil kits with pulled IMI Galil barrels for around $450. You can get a real IMI forged milled (not a reweld) receiver for $600 if you look around and wait. One just sold on the files last week. With build costs it will run to $1,400 around 50% the cost of a factory pre-ban. Galils are also more accurate than your average comblock AK's and are rock-solid and use 5.56 ammo, so no fear of ammo import bans. IMHO, Galils combine the best of the AK's and the AR's.
