If I were in your shoes I would go over it with the finest of fine toothed combs. I would check the head-space and if possible take it for a "test drive". That and if you have them (or can borrow them) take an Oralite mg and a steel mag and check their lock up..


That is all I can think of right now.

Good luck,

--->APB

Mr. M.P.,

Have fun with your InRange SERII Galil.

If I were to buy one today, that would be my first choice for sure.

Own an Inrange Galil and as you know by now they rock. Haven't used it a ton but enough to know it runs like a top and is accurate as the dickens. As for Elite, buddy just had them make a firearm and all I can say is total crap work, and overpriced crap work at that. Safety has the nice tab on it for flicking down with your finger, except all he did was cut off a piece of flat stock and weld it on 90 degrees out with some crappy grinding/sanding on it(there were literally still grind marks on it under the coating visible) With unsmoothed angles on the corners. The brake on front was some vague Tromix copy of cheap thin tubing, guessing .090(didn't measure it but I've done a lot of machining so have a good eye for it.) The front HK sight? rofl, he was too lazy to grind the original saiga sight base off so he just took the HK sight bridged it over it and welded the tabs down so there are two gaps on each side instead of the HK sight base being flush and wrapped to the base of the tube. Contact, good luck, he'll take your money just fine but any further communication has been pathetic. As for the holes where the original rivets were when he moved the trigger forward? Again too lazy to weld them over and grind/refinish, slapped rivets in them and even missed one at that. Stay away at all costs in my opinion. I'd be embarrassed to call myself a gunsmith if that's the kind of work I put out.
