I sold my factory Galil a while back (and my Valmet 76) and missed having a reliable blaster .223. I built up a Ruger Mini. Not as sexy as either of the other two but quality parts are available and they work with about the same accuracy for WAY less. If your buying a Galil try to stick with IMI receivers or factory guns. Good luck on spare parts!

Same problems with all Ohio rapid fire receivers .i dont know who does their heat treating or where they are getting blue prints for their receivers .The m76 receivers have problems the m70 yugo receivers are out of spec and off in many places when compaired to the real stubs .I could not build a working gun on mine and it sits on my shelf as an expensive peice of scrap and a testimony of me not listening to what others had to say . M64 receiver is way off from the original as well And their Israeli receiver has problems . Some of all their receivers have obvious heat treating problems . They claimed to have fixed everything on their M70 receiver and mine was one of the corrected ones . They remachined the mag well so a mag would actualy fit ! because mine would not accpt mags .they ignored all the other problems . google it and youl see the other folks problems with their receivers . Of course not all of their receivers ,but no company should produce and sell any lemmons ,should they ? Firing line have theirs right ,so it is possible to make an excellent milled receiver thats reliable . ORF just cant get a quality control standard .


Ditto the really poor ORF Galil receivers. I built a ARM Galil on an IMI receiver. Zero problems for fit and function. Headspace never moved from when it was set and the barrel torqued. I had a defective Galil built on a ORF receiver that I had the chance to take a look at. The headspace was .016 OVER field. Only one bolt lug making contact. The worse part was the mating receiver lugs were mushroomed from setback. The ejector was really cobbled up and was also deforming (soft). I told the person that IF you can get your money back just do it. The geometry was wrong. The finish was very good and it looked good. Mags fit perfect. Every case fired split all the way to the shoulder and was unsafe to fire. It was a nice idea building Galils but it's really hit and miss on quality.
