Unlimited Source of .308 Galil Mags

Everyone loves .308 Galils!

The problem is....finding full capacity mags.

Here's a solution.


We can all have as many .308 Galil mags as we want in the form of converted M14 mags. As everyone knows, the original .308 Galil mags were converted M14 mags.

Here is the guy that 'could' do it if he were so disposed.

Here is his email. (Hint. Hint.)

TonyR@tromix.com




Below is a copy of an email I sent to Tony Rumore at Tromix this morning.

*****************************

Tony,

Have you considered making a run of .308 Galil mags by converting M14 mags?

There is a big demand for .308 Galil mags. New M14 source mags could be obtained from Checkmate Industries.

I think you could probably sell these from $70-$90. Or specify customer supply their own Checkmate Industry mags so that you would have a 'constant' to work with and just charge for the conversion. A very large supply of Checkmate M14 mags is available as they are selling to civilians.

You have the best reputation in the industry of anyone that I know about for doing this type of thing.

I hope you will decide to explore this idea as the need, desire and demand for this product is very strong in the market.

Regards,

Dave Dickson

Yep. Tony is just THE MAN. He is truely a craftsman of the 1st order. Lots of nice S-12 conversions done by him too.... this is very interesting, the only thing stopping me from buying a galil is the lack of available mags...

Lack of mags is a completely unnecessary 'problem'.

You are not alone in avoiding a .308 Galil or AK due to lack of available mags.

I cannot understand why there is a shortage of full capacity .308 Galil mags. Every other mag in the world is available in almost endless supply.

I have heard that Marc Krebs will do .308 AK conversions to use Galil mags. So, that would be another market for mags. I think that a readily available source of full capacity .308 Galil mags would trigger many .308 AK conversions.

This situation is an opportunity begging for an entrepreneur.
