Elite Firearms questions

Post by run 'n gun » Sun Apr 24, 2011 5:12 pm

What is the sentiment here on the Galil parts rifles from Elite Firearms in Texas?

I searched here and the last thread located regarding those rifles was from a little over 3 years ago:
http://www.valmet.org/forum/viewtopic.p ... e+firearms

The old thread mentioned they were good quality. Does that still go?

How are the parts guns regarded in relationship to original Galils?


EDIT: I will be selling of some rifles soon and am considering the purchase of some of the offerings from EF of TX, so any personal experience of members here would be greatly appreciated.

I am not sure if these were made from Ohio Rapid Fire receivers . ORF receivers had problems reported with not being heat treated properly. The were too soft where the bolt lugs came into contact with the receiver and wore quickly on the .223 guns.

If the one you are looking at has an ORF receiver I would stay away.
