I remember when those were 4-5k. Have only spotted 4-5 of them changing hands over the years. Wonder what they are going for now?
I just need a 76 milled folder in 7.62 x 39. and I swear to GOD I will stop.

There is a fake or built one, not original, on GB right now with a BIN of $1,400.00.

I want the real deal. :D NIB's pricing should be right on the mark, even now. Prices are still depressed.

Any idea whose scope came with these?

I think users frequently mounted the rifles with fixed power Nimrod scopes, but I don't know if there was ever a standard. I remember that because I frequently called my former secretary (real name Nim) "Nimrod." When she complained about that, I told her that I used the moniker as a compliment and explained that the IDF frequently used Nimrod scopes out of respect for their quality and clarity and precision. :?

I don't think she ever bought that....

Thanks! Found it, and the same one (yours) is posted on Valmet.org under Galil history.

Probably easier to find.

Bet Tony has a few originals in his library!

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Yes; way off on the pricing.
There was only 12 to 18 originals that were sold before the ban.
Just before the ban; the price was 3,900.00; compared to 780.00 / 830.00 for AR-ARM models at the same time (1989)

The few owners I have found that own the originals and the avalibility puts the value around 10,000 min. average in todays market.
You can buy rifles; that were built on various recievers with the parts kits that were floating around after the ban (not many of those) anywere from 5,000.00 to 6,500.00. They vary a lot with all of the true parts and a case if you are lucky.

The current rifle on GB that is claiming it is a sniper is a joke to even fall under that name; since it doesn't even have any true sniper parts.

I just sold a true sniper barrel for 940.00 on GB (dated maked 1989"); in which came from a batch of true parts I ran across.

Good Luck in your search; as I put many many hours into my obession :D
