Quite a few years ago I owned an Israeli Galil. I really liked it but my Godson wanted it so I gave it to him. Then the prices went through the roof so I gave up on getting another one. Last month I was at Dunham's and they had the Golani on sale. The fit and finish is nowhere near the original but the gun is a good shooter and so far has been very reliable. The only problem I've had is with some russian wolf. It would not feed properly but I checked the length of the shells and they were longer than the standard 223. A different batch of Russian Wolf worked fine. So far I've put 2200 federal 223 through it with no malfunctions of any kind and 1100 Russian Wolf with no problems after putting aside the ones that were to long.
