Price Check: AA 332 s Galil

Post by Juno Valmet » Sun Dec 13, 2015 8:53 pm

Rifle is nib, serial number MR 076xx, imported by "Action Arms LTD, Phila, Pa" in a milled out area, model 332 with s in milled out area, has flash hider, bipod, wooden handguard, carry handle, and folding metal stock, but NO bayonet lug.

Thanks

Is the MR 076XX serial number in a "vertical" orientation behind the wooden handguard? Also do you see "Galil" stamped anywhere on the rifle's receiver? If the answers are "yes" and "no" respectively," I think you have what is considered a transitional rifle imported by Action Arms during or around 1992. To me, this would help explain the absence of the bayonet lug.

I would consider this a "post 1989 ban" rifle. It might not be quite as desirable as a "pre 1989 ban" rifle, but it is a very interesting and relatively rare example of the transitional and post ban Galils that importers were trying to get into the USA during that time. To me, it is certainly more desirable than the neutered, cobbled rifles of that period or the more recently built rifles being made available today.

Bottom line... Given the NIB condition, I would estimate a value of about $3,000.

Thanks for reply. MR 076xx is vertical. It does not have Galil on receiver.

Dallas,

I believe that the MR serial and AA importer marks would be a transitional rifle (Magnum Research to Action Arms) = pre-89 (probably @ 1986)!!! :D

Juno,

Post pics of the receiver markings and barrel--- that will be definitive. :wink:
