Thanks Tom and GoodGuy, I did check Numrich, but their online information indicates the pin is out of stock. I'll call and confirm. Blackthorne is also showing a pin. I'm still trying to determine if they have them in stock. Hoping Tom may find a good image of the pin. Another learning curve for me ...

Need Help: parts needed to mount Galil carry handle

I have a Galil 332 from which the carry handle was detached (by a previous owner). I have the original carry handle, but none of the parts (pin, spring,etc.) that are required to properly install the handle on the rifle. This is my first Galil and I don't know what is missing or a source for the cor...

Found some IMI magazines

Thanks to GoodGuy and M62/M76 for the reference to Blackthorne. I was about to order a couple of their IWI mags, but came across three original IMI mags in new condition (one with an '86 date and two with '87 dates) so decided to spend some extra and purchased them. Necessary to purchsse all three f...

WTB Galil .308 magazines (25rd)

I am looking to purchase up to (3) magazines for a recently acquired Galil 332. Prefer original IMI with a pre-89 ban date. Anyone considering a reduction in their stockpile, please send me a PM with details.

Thanks for the information

The link sent by Steve was exactly the detail I'd hoped for. I had been accumulating some Weiger magazines in anticipation of doing conversions. With the information from Steve I'll get started.

Thanks to all

How to modify an E.German Weiger mag for use in a M76 ?

I've read numerous forum accounts inferring the E. German "Weiger" steel magazine (.223) is one of the rare AK mags that can be modified for use in the Valmet M76. However, I've yet to find any detailed description of what must be done for a successful and safe conversion. If any one here has experi...

Galil 7.62x51 model differences

I am hoping the Galil collectors on this forum will take a moment to comment on the external and internal differences between these pre-ban Galil models in 7.62x51:

Galil 323
Galil 329
Galil 332

Also information on the comparative rarity/value of these models would be appreciated. Thanks.

Regarding feedback

My original question about where to find feedback was prompted when reading Tom Doniphon's Market Place Rules which included the following: "2. Check for feedback before entering a deal, check the feedback forum for any shady sellers. If you cannot find feedback, don't be afraid to ask about the buy...

Buddy's Images

I've been an admirer of Valmets for nearly 40 years, but only recently became an owner. First was a M78 (.308) and now a M76 (.223) "tube folder". Gaining an understanding of magazine variants has been my biggest concern (after scarecity & price). Contributors to this forum and now Buddy's fantastic...

Where to view feedback?

I've located a couple items in the "MarketPlace" forum I may buy. However, I'd like to view the seller's feedback before continuing. Unfortunately I am still a novice when it comes to finding my way around this site. Could someone direct me to that location where I can view a sellers feedback? Thanks

Odd serial # on a Galil 332 (.308 cal)

I need some knowledgable assistance. A Galil 332 recently surfaced for sale in my area. I'm not knowledgeable regarding the Galil variants. Its serial: #AAL 2078442 troubles me. There is an "N" stamped between the "L" and "2" with a dab of black paint apparently intended to cover the N. I believe I'...
