Manufacturer: King Arms (Hong Kong)
Over a year ago, I was able to review the first KA (King Arms) complete AEG, the FAL. It was a little disappointing at the time, but for KA initial release, it was better than other Chinese airsoft companies current releases. The more recent "Troy" releases from KA have been pretty impressive and seem to be a good value for what you are getting. So onto the KA Galil SAR.
Initial impressions are it’s a very solid build. Parts fit together nice and tight, but the stock does have a slight "wiggle" Like the FAL release, the Galil is lighter in weight, then you would expect. Trademarks look good and no misspellings I’ve noticed so far. The right side AK style selector switch is functional, but the left side, thumb switch is cosmetic only (Although it will move between S A R). This model does include secondary flip up night sights, but these do NOT have tritium as the real 1 does.
I’ve held both, the TSI Armoires SAR (Thanks to USCMCorps) and the KA Galil. The TSI Galil is a spot on replica of a Real Steel Galil in size, weight and tritium night sights. The KA Galil is lighter in weight but has some added features the TSI does not. .
You can fit up to a 12v AK stick style battery, but for now I’ve only managed a 9.6. The KA Galil SAR is also a Blowback AEG. The action is crisp and while it adds no performance improvements, is definitely fun to fire.
The magazine supplied with the AEG is a 130 rounder. The magwell and catch look very close to an AK’s, but on the KA Galil is not 100% compatible. BUT you can modify an AK mag to work on the KA Galil with a little Dremel work. So for my buddy Mr. Longbaugh, the TSI AK/M4 Mag Adapter could work, but filing the machined aluminum block may take a while.
