Ok ive been long debating which AK I want and yada yada, I am completely sold on a Galil I personally think its the best of both worlds, however I cant find one thats worth paying for and I read online the century ones are garbage, They go for around $545 tho in a couple places online, I was searching the boards here and someone mentioned the SLR106 as being a solid gun thats similiar to the Galil.

Problem here is there is NOT very much info on this or the Galil, I can barely find a youtube video on a Galil without it referring to Black Ops. Does anyone have one or the other or better yet both?

Im thinking an Arsenal SLR106 might be the way to go for me, its about as galil as it gets minus the sites (which I LOVE). Is this a solid rifle? Or would you go a different direction? Thanks for all the insight!

A Galil is heavier than the average AK or Arsenal rifle. Keep that in mind before you order one. If you plan to move around a lot take one of the lighter rifles instead of the Galil. But if you aren't going to move around a lot and want a sturdy rifle, get the Galil.

Not to mention I think they (galils) generally have a bit longer of a barrel... 18+ inches IIRC? compared to 16 inches with an average AK. So, that might actually net you a little bit more velocity... but I, myself, like as short a barrel as I can get away with.

If you want a .223 rifle AK style... why not look at AK74's in 5.45. It's a Russian round designed for the guns... effective as .223... and cheap as hell. Thats my plan when some funds show up (waiting patiently).

That was my first thought actually but i was thinking 223 would be easier to come by in the long run an I cant seem to find an AK74 anywhere especially one that folds. I might as well just buy them all.

Gun is great having once owned one. However, finding mags and the cost of them does it no justice.

Are you talking about the slr106? And id imagine maybe thats why its so unpopular as well. I mean I dont see a whole lot about the gun it seems great tho. Maybe ill just go the 7.62 route. it seems to have the cheapest Aks the 74's r more expensive it seems harder to find and I have to rely on ordering the ammo online. For the price of the ak74 I could get a yugo and 1000 rounds, Maybe I just need an AR this is becoming a headache, I just wanna be able to fold the dang thing in half lol

I've got a 107F as I have zero use for a 5.56, it's a very well made AK and worth every penny if you can find one. SLR's haven't been brought in by Arsenal in a while so supplies have dwindled, grab one if you can find it. Galil's are nice but like mentioned very heavy.

Ive been watching videos on the SLR 107FR's with the rail, wow what a weapon. I would love to have that gun, looks like im going to be spending ALOT more money then I ever intended to here. Oh well quality costs money I guess.

Remember, there is the Galil and the Golani.

The Galil will set you back a few bucks. I have not priced them in a bit but you are looking at over 1.5k or 800 for a kit plus getting some one to build it for you. The Golani is not bad but most need a bit of tlc.Had a smith go over the one I have and now it shoots wolf without a hickup. It even prefers the heavier grain bullets and groups as well as any AK. I would recommend that you get one that comes with a few mags. They are NOT standard AK mags so be mindful of that.

I am actually going to be putting mine up for sale on one of the boards. I have way too many AK type rifles... :D:

The SLR106 is far superior to any of the Galil type clones I've seen in gun stores. But go out and handle both rifles. Mabye I haven't seen the right Galil. The ones I have seen I think were Century builds. And I wouldn't even put those on par with Century's WASR.

the best mix of AR/AK characteristics is the robinson arms XCR... adjustable gas system with a long stroke piston, takes standard AR mags and pistol grips.

basically the bolt/carrier/recoil spring are the same as the AK, and the lower is similar to an AR though without the buffer tube.
