Re: Valmet m78 conversion by Hard Times Armory

What are your goals? Return it to .308? May be fasted cheapest solution depending on receiver work. Just buy a semi and put parts on it.

Re: How to Build a Galil

I have built several and they are a bit challenging. They always seem to take much more time than I first think they will. Finding virgin IMI 1 in 7 barrels is getting hard last time I checked.

Re: 7.62 x 51 PMC Korean Surplus

One other note. We also tried this ammo with a "drop in trigger" assembly in an AR10 from Palmetto State Armory. Works fine with the original Palmetto trigger which is standard AR15 I believe.
