ICS Galil AR ?

Hi I was thinking of buying an ICS Galil but I just can not find enough about it to make the purchase I was wondering If you guys could help me out. My biggest concern is, Is it well working out of the box? and Can it feed ak mags I know it can fit them but I just never got the chance to see if they feed. Also Are the galil mags easy to find preferably mid caps? Thanks guys I am really looking forward to your responses

Go for the RS type 56, it's a solid gun and wont give you too big of a headache out of the box (solid AEG from what I've seen!). My ICS Galil is only now recovering from the problems it had out of the box, it does take standard AK47 magazines without problems. Some ICS Galils cannot feed their mags properly, which is a real annoyance. Mine have been modified to feed properly (by bending certain parts of it).

The gun has had a list of fixes to make it properly working. I'm sure it's not the case for every ICS Galil but in my experience it's been an adventure.

Although right now there's a wiring issue, but after that, it should be a very good AEG (nice range due to M16 length inner barrel).

Although a good AEG now, looking back I'd get a Type 56, it's a solid package.

However the mags are proprietary (but somehow ICS Galil mags work in it).

Type 56 is way better. It's made from a real type 56 Chinese AK, the parts and performance are epic.

I use King Arms AK47 mags in my Real Swork Type 56 and they work fine. I will be trying out the G&P one's shortly.

AFAIK it's only the wood that's sourced from the same forest/area/wood type that the real Type 56 wood is from but I've also heard rumours about RS having some sort of contact with Norinco?

If you must go with a GALIL go King Arms I love mine to death it performs flawless compared to the clones ie Cyma, ICS etc. Much like any King Arms It has great performance straight out of the box the only mods I did to mine was a tightbore barrel(Madbull Black Python) to make the stighter groupings and the spring guide, everything else is stock and running Lipo on it.

Well all depends if you want an AK or a Galil. In my opinion the Ics is a solid gun out of the box and it hasnt give me any problem so far. The only minor issues that has are the woobley handguard and mags, nothing that cant be fixed with electric tape here and there.
If you want an AK the RS is the way to go.
