Galil MAR Micro Galil by Drake-UK Galil MAR Micro Galil by Drake-UK
Another unusual little gun this month although admittedly it belongs to my brother this time round.

Pictured is King Arms replica of the IMI Galil MAR (micro galil) and its pretty slick and very compact.

Only realized this version of galil is 5.56mm after I had taken this photo which makes the scattered shells redundant since they're 7.62 but shhhh hopefully nobody will notice.

Real Steel Blurb

The most recent addition to the Galil family of weapons is the MAR compact carbine, which retains the internal features of the original Galil with a completely new frame, operating system and an even shorter barrel. Introduced to the public at the 2nd International Defence Industry Exhibition in Poland in 1994, the weapon was developed for use with the army and police special units, vehicle crews, army staff, special operations personnel and airborne infantry.

Hm, I wish I could get a real Galil, but the only one I know of that's open to the civilian market is some low-quality copy called the Golani, from Century Arms. :/

Is that the golani sporter or something ?

Thats a pity are they banned in all states as I think I remember some advertised for sales a while back through some company called action arms ?

I think it's a sporter, yeah.

Huh? No, as far as I know, they aren't banned. It's just that the only Galil I've ever found available to the civilian market is that one. I mean, we're allowed to have all sorts of rifles, like AR15s, AK47s, AK74s, FALs, PTR91s, RPKs, etc. We can't have anything fully automatic, of course (unless you go through all the paperwork, and pay the thousands of dollars in fees to the BATFE). I just don't know of any Galil/Golani rifles that I could get aside from that low quality one.

I see, I have seen a few for sale in the past while browsing around sites via google (in and around the $3.500 mark) but I assumed when you said you wish you could get them that they where banned in particular states or something similar.

Ouch...that's a lot of money. I could never afford that. I could get a HK MR556 for a lot less than that, and I'd rather have that than the Galil/Golani in the first place. Anyway, no, as far as I know, the Galil/Golani rifle isn't banned in any particular states (I could be wrong). Rather, my state is a more "gun friendly" state, and there isn't much in terms of limitations. In the last state I lived in, Maryland, there were some annoying laws. For example, you can't have magazines with higher than a 20-round capacity there. Certain guns are also banned or restricted there, most of which are for very stupid reasons, such as them being stereotypical criminal weapons, like AK47s and such. Of course, you can get those guns in Maryland, but you have to do the proper paperwork before they'll allow it. Others, like the Tec-9, are banned altogether.

Yeah, I had lurked around here many moons ago but only just setup an account. Found my way onto your profile a couple of times before, great images, liking your work!

I have a new toy on my shopping list as a little treat so the plan is to work on gathering a bit of decent content for upload in the not too distant future.

Anyhow, I hope you are well... It's a bit quiet round these parts and feels like ages since I got out for a run around or met up with the gang.

Be Good!

Surely you jest with the kind words =]

Yeah it has been a little quiet as of late and its a shame there are no big shooty events planned this side of christmas as I've been itching to get out for a blast.

Anyway would this new toy be a fancy snapper ?

If so me and bOp regularly venture out on expeditions (through tollymore and the likes) if you even fancy tagging along to build up that old gallery of yours.

Lastly I'm never good !

Haha, thanks for my Llama. I had just noticed the one in the corner of your profile so it was a nice surprise. I'm easily amused with little pixel animals... Hmm, wonder if they have any foxes!

Yup, I'll be gettin myself an SLR as I've gone as far as I can with my iPhone and the plethora of apps I've gathered over the last year. Not that there's anything wrong with iPhone snaps but I just feel like expanding my skills a bit farther. Was gonna upload a few pix from the iPad but dA is littered with flash/Java so it's playing hard to get at the moment.

Would be good to get out with you guys for sure, tis an excellent idea and it's a long time since my last visit to the Mournes. Know a few nice spots also, would be great to go back for some pix.

Anyhow, eyes closing, work in the morning, so... Nite nite!  (~_~)

Unfortunately only Llamas although you might like browsing these [link]

Once you get a half decent SLR everything else will feel like a toy in comparison or at least in my experience anyway.

I personally really like their stuff, some of their older guns where oddly designed but they've been getting better over the years.

I have one of their M4's and its one of the best performers I have and has survived a tremendous amount of abuse.

Best of all they're good value.

That's even lucky. I haven't played in about a year and a half. Mostly because there's literally nowhere to play.

Lucky ? theres only about 6-7 sites here in northern ireland in total as opposed to the 100's in the states =[

I'd love to get to one of the Op: Irene events over in the states but only US nationals are allowed to enter the base =[

Aleandryd Featured By Owner Oct 24, 2011
Well, I gotta say . . . Northern Ireland is a little bit smaller than the US. And those 100's? They're all pretty much where I'm not. But there are a few popping up here and there. Hopefully I'll finally be able to play next month, though. I'm stoked.
