    Factory cosmetic blems in 308 and 7.62x39 at classicfirearms.com

    Picked up a 7.62 tonight... I'm sure theyll go quick at that price.

    I've always been torn between my FAL that I like a whole lot, and a Galil in 7.62Nato, which I could afford if I sold the FAL.

    FAL, or Galil... which one o' dese? :confused:

    I tried to buy one but they won’t process my order due to the magazine restrictions in CO, which no one follows including gun stores. They sell you disassembled mags in store, it’s so lame.

    I sent an email to see if they will still process an order and just omit the magazine.

    If anyone knows anyone at Classic I could use a good contact.

    I think I'm going to stick with me FAL... it's like apples and oranges, anyway, 'cause the FAL is a long rifle, an' the Galil is a CQ tool.

    I bet they had really high order volume Cyber Week. With that said, my Cyber Monday order from them (not a Galil Ace) arrived on Saturday.

    I really hate Classic Firearms for the fact they can't manage to sell locally without a middleman FFL. It's not 1989 anymore.

    I remember having to drive down there to some FFL they used back in the day to pick up a $60 Mosin Nagant.
    Between that, sales tax and their constant "LAST ONE WE'LL EVER HAVE", "SOON TO BE BANNED", "LAST SHIPMENT FROM EUROPE" bullcrap, I haven't bought anything from them since.

    Not as bad as Botach in NV, used to be in Los Angles and shipping firearms was slow.
    I'm not in a rush for it, still shows shipping stage, most likely waiting for my local ffl email before shipping.

    At least you may get one. I received an email reply of “I'm terribly sorry, but the Galil's have sold out at this time. Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience, and I hope you have a great day.”

    Can’t blame them too much since this is a Colorado issue. Trying to stock up before the Democrats take full control of the government in 2019.

    I wonder if they are drop shipping most of these guns. From what I understand the first handful of guns sold on Friday were shipped, but the vast majority remain pending like yours. Could be that Classic is just swamped due to the holidays, but methinks ol' Sweaty Ben "forgot" to mention that most of his special $999 stock weren't actually in stock.

    Just got off phone with customer service. They said everything is fine...and that they are behind schedule already with holidays and this Galil sale put them farther behind schedule. I have no issue with delays due to holiday traffic...but i dont like when there is no communication. I guess im impatient, but if you can make daily changes to your website and youtube videos i would think they could add lead time info on their website. She said it should ship by Friday.

    Agree, they could have put a update on the webpage for the item to let us know the ship date.

    Sad I missed out on the Galil I wandered into my LGS and surprisingly walked out with this M1a CQB. I threw the red dot on I had lying around.

    Yep, they gave me a good price on it too. Between shipping, tax, and transfer of the Galil the M1a cost me about the same.

    I left Beaverton a little over a year ago for Colorado. Didn’t realize I hadn’t changed my profile. Back in Oregon I frequented Oregon Arms and Ammunition as well as NW Armory and J&B Firearms.

    No, the rifles are shipping from their location in NC. I get to pickup my rifle this afternoon at my lgs.
    Ship by FedEx ground.

    And they’re gone again.

    I talked to them today. They are definitely in their warehouse and are coming to Classic from IWI. They told me they look really good. They might be getting a few more in next week.

    Mine came in, 7.62x39, picked it up and looked it all up and down. I cannot find a blemish on it anywhere. It looks great, action is smooth as butter. It has a factory warranty registration and all the goodies...also as a side note the 7.62 model comes with a cheek riser too. Ill get some pics posted soon in the long guns section. Expensive gun, but so far seems well worth it...and at that price id pick up a 308 if i could. Anyone gets a 308 they dont want....ill trade ya a few guns fer it. o_O
