    That’s it? Just an update of their inventory?

      The magic of press releases and online “news” sites.

  • G0rdon_Fr33man

    Why import stamped receivers from Bulgaria? Why not just manufacture the entire thing in the US?

    • Para

      Because then you’d have to pay US labor, I’m guessing. Also they may not have the tooling to do so in the US, where as every former Combloc nation can crank out AKs

    • Doug_723

      I do believe Century Arms manufactures AK’s right here in the US, and milled receivers, not stamped.
      Check it out, from their website:

    Thankfully there are plenty of quality AK vendors under the $1000 range now. In fact I just ordered one with magpul furniture the other day.

    • Nicks87

      Yeah Arsenal needs to drop their prices. Way over priced compared to what’s available right now.

      • Plumbiphilious

        Agreed. A nice Vepr just has a crap, fingernail-removable finish (this is honestly real, if mine is any indication), but is honestly a really good AK (just admittedly pretty heavy, due to the receiver).

        And it in general goes for $700.

        That’s a pretty good price point (for the current market climate; I honestly would say $600 is fair and what it should be priced at for Molot and local distributors to each get a proper cut, rather than gouge), even if it has to be converted (and the wood is often so nice if you didn’t get a rush import like I did during the scare, that you may not even want to beyond a bullet guide and 922r parts).

        • Bear The Grizzly

          Interesting, my Vepr has the nicest finish of all my rifles, which really isn’t that many. I wonder if I got lucky.

        • myndbender

          My Arsenal slr-107f bought new in’09 has same problem. Apparently that was a common problem with those rifles. The upside is while the painted surface scratches off with a fingernail, it has a parkerized finish underneath so no rust. I paid @ $750 otd in ’09, & love my rifle, but for that price the finish should’ve been perfect. Those were the days of sub $400 WASRs, so for $750 & the Arsenal reputation, that glitch should’ve been caught by QC before any left the factory.

  • caleb

    They arent made in the us, just 922d here. Ray is mistaken.

  • Kalash

    Wait.. no back of the wherehouse jokes?

  • John

    Totally worth it. A friend of mine has the SAM7 from the U.S. days and will not part with it for love or money.

  • John

    Isn’t 1mm awfully thin? The first SA-80s were made with the same kind of thin metal, and they had all sorts of heating and reliability problems.

    • iksnilol

      Standard AKM receiver is 1mm IIRC. Shouldn’t have any issues.

    • Para

      1mm iz best AK, comrade.

    • Ken

      If you want a thicker receiver, get a Chinese AK (1.6mm I believe). The standard for most AK’s is 1mm, and it’s plenty tough when heat treated right.

    • USMC03Vet

      You should go check out AK Operator Union youtube videos where they determine if the receiver is up to the task.
      Hint: It is more than tuff enuff.

  • Lance

    Another AK-103 and AK-101 soooooooooooooo YAWN!!!!!!!!!

    • DW

      And if this were an Ar it would instead be soooooo interesting. classic lance post. YAWN.

      • Para

        Lance never fails to impress.

        • Docduracoat

          I love me my Arsenal SGL 20 in 7.62 x 39, comrade.
          Close copy of patriotic AK 103 as used by socialist brothers in Venezuela.
          Shoots 3 inch, five shot groups at 100 yards with Kobra chevron reticle sight and Tula ammo.
          Good enough for headshots on capitalists! Da!
          Cost no object when buy patriotic rifle that will last forever.

  • NewMan

    Would be nice if the receiver was 1.5mm thick. But 1mm seem to be ‘good enough’

    • Max Glazer

      Russian army uses standard 1mm thick steel for receivers and soldiers routinely use their AKs to boost their buddies over obstacles. So 1.5mm would increase weight of the receiver itself by extra 50% for no tangible reason.

  • tb556

    IMO, 99% of people aren’t going to pay $1.50 a round for quality 7.62×39 ammunition so there’s no real point in buying an expensive plinker. Having owned 5 AKs and a Sig 556 Classic. If you really want 7.62×39 a Sig 556R (better design) or a Zastava (cheap) AK is a better run for your money.

  • i1776

    How about more CR’s? FR junk! We want CR!

    • Kable Holding

      Same here. Been looking for a CR at a reasonable price that hasn’t been butchered for a long time now.

      • BaconLovingInfidel

        Why aren’t they importing CRs? Did they hire an HK exec? Do they hate me?
