Since a lot of parts from foreign battle rifles are being assembled today using American receivers and barrels, I try to follow what’s new among them. One that really interested me recently is the Elite Firearms 7.62x39mm Galil. I have always liked the Galil rifle, but the concept of one in 7.62x39mm chambering is especially attractive.

First, it is possible to find 7.62x39mm ammo today for less than half the price of the Galil’s original chambering, the .223. Second, the Galil in 7.62x39mm would make an excellent choice for a security team rifle if that team were being deployed to parts of the world where 7.62x39mm is the standard ammunition.

The Galil is basically an improved version of the AK47. Many of these improvements are in ergonomics, while the rugged durability of the Kalashnikov system is retained. The Galil sights are better than those of the AK; its folding stock is much more comfortable than an AK under folder; its cocking handle is much easier to operate; and its thumb safety has been improved.

The Galil’s rear peep sight is an L-shaped design with peeps for 300 and 500 meters. I find I can shoot better with them than with a typical AK rear notch. The front post remains virtually the same and is adjustable for elevation and windage.

The Galil side-folding stock is one of the best on any assault rifle. There are a couple of others that are just as good. The Galil cocking lever sticks up well above the receiver, which allows it to be operated readily with the support hand.

    You have it backward, the people identifying themselves as Palestinian refuse to acknowledge Israel. The only land for peace deal acceptable would be all of Israel.

    Israelis do not want to kill Muslims. They want to stop attacks by terrorists, who are part of and protected by the general population. If your family were routinely attacked by people who are allowed to run and hide, you would feel different.

    Islam is a religion of peace but hatred and intolerance is being taught instead. I wish there were an easy answer to the problems in the Middle East.

    Regardless of the surrounding politics, the Galil is a well designed and reliable weapon.

    Fuck the “Palestine state”. Israel is not without guilt of innocent bloodshed, not by far…but Palestine IS Islam, and Islam is murder. From its very bastardized origin, Islam has been all about murder, rape, and the degradation of women. Mohammed was an outright murderer and pedophile, consummating a marriage with a 9 year old little girl. That is their high “prophet”. Both in origin and in expressed ideals, Islam is a bloody, evil, illegitimate “religion”.

    It is false to say all Palestinians are Muslim,…but of those identifying as “Palestinian” worldwide, 6% are Christian, the rest are virtually all Muslim. Sweden, Norway, and other ultra-liberal countries which give asylum to Muslims have sharply-increased rape statistics of their native female population, that are in direct correlation with the influx of Muslim “men”. Rapists. These dogs should not be given a state; every area which they infest increases exponentially in violence, rape, murder, and the national mean intelligence quotient is severely downgraded. Islam: The religion of dogs.

    Disclaimer: These statements are fully verifiable in fact, and are in no way racist in nature, nor are they intended to be taken as such. Christianity, indeed Jesus, changes lives, shapes cultures, to be fruitful and prosperous, regardless of race or nationality…Islam is proven to be the lie that it is by the social, cultural, and moral destruction left in its wake.

    Isn’t buying from the Israelis like financing terrorism? But who cares about terrorism? Not America, right? Right?

    I mean, the Jews want to be recognised as a state, but they refuse to recognise the Palestine state.
