Default Where to buy a Galil kit?

Hi All
I am looking to pickup a couple of kits. Who has what and the best/best deal currently?

Thanks for any help.

Numrich.

SAR and ARM (advertised as AR)

That's the BEST place for Galil kits.

Thanks

The Apex kit i got is hammered dog s*#t. The lure of the barrel isn't worth it. My gunpartscorp kit is 1000% nicer.

I think I heard somewhere that those kits had been imported from Nicaragua or some other humid, 3rd world, Latin American hell hole. That might explain their condition. Even the one they picked out for the featured photo on the listing looked really beat up.

Numrich, my ARM kit gets here Wednesday! I thought of getting one from APEX last year when they were cheaper, but the one I got from Numrich cost less than what they used to at APEX and will probably be in much nicer shape.

Idk too much about Galils, but if you get an ARM kit and a SAR/AR handguard you'd probably be good to go? I mean, you'd have the gas block with the bipod provision, but that's not the end of the world.

I think I saw a MAC video where he had one of those galil imports that was basically an ar with an arm gas block. So I would think that would work.

If you want a AR instead of ARM then order the ARM and I will get you what you need. Most people want the bipod ARM. I got any of the parts you need.

I've thought about picking up a kit myself and trying to do a build. But are there any receivers available any where?

An FYI for you guys looking at Numrich.
If they know your birthday in your login account they will send you a 15% discount code for your birthday month.

I've applied that to my last two Galil kit purchases.

Sounds like CNCW will be doing another run this year. They're not cheap (600$) but they're about as good as it gets. I've got 3 (well 3rd is almost done at Hillbillys) built on CNCW receivers and they're excellent rifles
