Traded for a hillbilly firearms galil
 
1 Attachment(s)
So yesterday I traded off a converted Saiga I had built with some mags and ammo for a Galil rifle that was built by Jeff miller out at hillbilly firearms,the guys over on the Uzi forums rave about his work. I called Jeff to confirm what all was done before the trade and he confirmed and answered a few questions and told me his warranty goes with the rifle and let him know how it shoots, real stand up guy.

One if the things he did with it was parkerize and then cerakote everything aside from the barrel and gas block. He said that's how IMI galils are.

Very nice! I heard those are supposed to be a hybrid between an ak47/ar15/FAL and Israelis love it have you shot it?

Im not sure why they say its a cross between an ar and ak i dont see anything ar15 about it -_- what caliber is that rifle chambered for?

Haven't took it out yet,I can see how they tried to mimick some of the AR's ergos though. I can now operate the safety with my right thumb,the mag release with my trigger finger,the upswept charging handle allows me to easily operate the charging handle with left hand now without reaching under the gun or tilting it sideways like an AK,other than that,almost the same action as an AK and very AK-esque. Just a bit heavier due to all milled construction,all the better for a club though I suppose.

It also has peep sights that are AR15ish. With fold up tritium sights. And shoots 5.56,you can buy mag adapters that enable it to use AR magazines as well,which I plan on doing
