    May be a new one for me; or is the fingernail trick an M4 / M16 patent? On a Galil, if you needed to gig someone, you could always find carbon in the grooves at the end of the piston? בוכנת הגזים. Don't know what it's called in English.

    In Galil, unlike in ARs, you cannot put see through the barrel on some bright background/light source to see clearly the inside. So you put the fingernail near the back end of the barrel to reflect the light inside - the elephants have no place to hide now.

    [edit]

    That's me, when I was young, thin and beautiful, hunting the bloody animals.

    Damn, I was looking forward to the experience. After reading "All Quiet On The Western Front" they made loof sound good.

    On the AK's the grooves generally come out clean but the end of the piston I find is perpetually covered in crud and no amount of solvent will ever break it free. Not that I really know what this discussion is about anyways.

    Not a moment too soon. That stuff (loof) gave me the runs big time! I started hoarding the tuna to eat instead.

    I think it is an incomplete Sabra. I was there too, and the IMI guy explained that complete Sabra tanks are being delivered to Turkey.

    Delivery is complete by now.
