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.
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.
