    Good question. I've wondered myself about the Galil Golani 5.56 NATO wondering if they are less finnicky in the sandy environments than the M16's or M4's.
    I'll be watching for the answers you receive on this.

    Yes, I have, and the 5.56mm. What do you want to know.

    Really accurate and reliable in the extreme. Very good with sand and dirt, much more so than the M4 and M16 series. I can attest to it through experience. Handy dandy flip up trit night sights, mostly like an AK inside. Full ambi controls, and even the cocking handle can be operated with either hand, thats why it is turned up. A folding stock you can bash a door in without breaking. Only gripe, a bit heavy...But then I am a delicate refined sort of chap.

    This might receive more responses in the LARGE BORE/SMALL BORE RIFLE/SHOTGUN forum.

    I've not actually shot a Galil, but I have an XCR and I've been told that they're somewhat similar. The XCR has more modern ergonomics and a monolithic rail on top / quad rail in front, but they have the same operating system (long stroke gas piston), similar internals and folding stock. Great reliability and durability.
