The deed is done

Well, I bit the bullet and trimmed off the rail that extended back over the dust cover and I think it will work. It also allows me to get the dust cover off and access the innards without taknig the whole rail assembly off. I am not very camera/computer interface literate but I will try to get a pho...

UTG quad rail

I bought a UTG quad rail system for my galil AR. It installed great, but the top rail really crowds out the cocking handle on the right side.

Only thru the cloak of anonymity could I so freely admit my mechanical ineptitude. Gotta love the internet! That is one reason I fell in love with the Galil. I clearly remeber reassembling the rifle and thinking "Damn, I can do this!" Even with a bit of fumbling. Thanks!

Galil front sights in Dillon catalogue

Dillon has front post replacement sights for sale. These are crosshair type sights and I wonder if they are worth the purchase. Also, are there any aftermarket rear sights for the galil available? Thanks
