      • Until our douche bag governor gets tired of destroying the gas, oil, and coal industries and moves on to guns. He has shown repeatedly that he is in perfect step with the president.

  1. Is that a third hole I see on that Galil? Ooops. I want one of the new Galils, but I think I’ll settle for the Galil kit I have sitting here and build it instead. It will take AR mags and be 5.56. Should be fun!

  2. Can any of the gunsmiths here clue me as to how, after beating the crap out of the barrel with the mandrel inside, how the hell do they get the mandrel back out?

    Heat the barrel red and hope it drops out?
