        You lost me on your meaning JJ.
        not hill i want to die on...but.......truly would like to know your meaning.
        why are pistol stocks stupid? IIRC.....the first M16s had pistol stocks prior to the gun laws about handguns and pistol grips?
        are pistol grips on shotguns also stupid? On M16 and M4s stupid grips?
        i am lost, you must mean something different. ???

        • But i am not talking about the grips, I am talking about the pistol stocks, I guess you can call them pistol braces

            The folding buttstocks then.

              Yep. Some of the BATF laws are really dumb. Dumb and confusing.

                Apologies for the previous deleted post, I apparently struggle with this forum interface...



                The micro Galils have their charging handles on the left with the toggle arm that keeps dirt out like the current production Galil Ace. That looks like just a standard upturned Galil charging handle, is he going to try and reconfigure that?

                  No, that's the correct charging handle for an older model Micro, I've just swapped to updated furniture such as the railed gas tube and railed handguard. My parts kit was one of the 2004 Botach imported Micros that belonged to LAPD. These had the early "short" handguard, no rails, and the "thin" folding stock, as well as having the Hadar II style charging handle.

                      Ah! Very cool. Apologies, yep, that is not the Galil upturned charging handle. Look twice, post once! Love the Galils, and I much preferred the Hadar style charging handle. In fact, I really preferred an AK charging handle and swapped out Yugo M-70 bolt carriers for the Galil bolt carriers, just never liked the upturned handles. Good luck with the build.

                      • Yeah those braces are a damn shame. I see guys doing up great looking shorties and then slapping a Sig brace or shockwave so they don't have to stamp it.

                        Atleast the ATF let's you shoulder it now...

                          I don't get the brace thing either.

                          I understand that it is an aid for physically disabled shooters, but beyond that it seems to me to be a useless gimmick.

                          Maybe I am just old and crotchety.

                            Nice Galil.

                            In my day, the shortest barrel variant in service was the Glilion.

                            Not sure when the Micro came out, but it was some time after my service.

                            The charging handle is also different from standard original IDF issue.

                            Unless I am missing something, that butt-stock is not a brace.

                              It is a Gearheadworks Tailhook brace on a custom aluminum adapter to allow it to attach to the Micro Galil's folding mechanism. When in the store and position it does look like a stock, but it was designed to be used with the right side of the tailhook flipped open to form a shelf that rests under your forearm and as such counterbalances the weight of the firearm so that your wrist is not taking the entire weight. Kind of like the hook on the bottom of a spas 12 stock.
                              I'm not entirely sure when the Micro Galil came out however I know the parts for mine came from one that was imported to the US for law enforcement use in 2004.

                                Me too. Seems silly but hey, whatever floats your boat. I always worry that BATF will change their minds too. That photo is kind of the Galil "family tree". Russian Type 3, Valmet M62, and on top of course, the final evolution, the Galil.
