Today we will cover the details of the Bulgarian-made SAM7K Pistols, specifically the SAM7K-01 and the SAM7K-02. These 7.62x39mm caliber pistols combine authentic, high-quality features rarely seen in the American market. Every component of the SAM7K is engineered to provide decades of dependable service. No longer in production, the SAM7K pistol is definitely a sought-after shooter and collectible firearm amongst enthusiasts.
Other milled-receiver AKs are machined from bar stock, but Arsenal’s hot-die hammer forging produces stronger and finer-grained steel. Internal voids and cooling deformations are eliminated by the 5-ton hammer forging process.
Features like the hinged dust cover, ambi-safety, roll up rear peep or notch sight, and double hook trigger make this a great option for those that want a compact firearm in a heavy caliber without the long wait of an SBR approval. There are plenty of options out there for attaching braces as well.
The biggest difference from the SAM7K-01 and SAM7K-02 model is that the 02 model comes equipped with a tactical flashlight integrated into the lower handguard. Please see below for details:
