Range Review: Arsenal SAM7SFK-80R
"These guns are well-built, accurate, reliable and packed with features that the old Soviet troops would have killed for. This rifle isn’t cheap, but ammunition is plentiful and inexpensive and the rifle is a load of fun to shoot." -Keith Wood

Arsenal SLR104-51 5.45x39mm AK74 Rifle at Atlantic Firearms
The SLR-104UR comes with Arsenal, Inc.'s already famous left-side folding solid polymer buttstock and ribbed handguards. The folding buttstock makes the SLR-104UR compact rifle for carrying easily and locks in its extended position rock-solid and provides all the comfort you need during shooting. The lower handguard comes with Arsenal, Inc.'s stainless steel heat shield, which helps keep your hand cooler when shooting.

The configuration I selected represents just a portion of the slick, useful and cool features and upgrades the company has to offer.

All About Arsenal's SAS M-7 Classic + Comparing to AK47 T3 & Modern SAM7R
In this one, we take a closer look at the Arsenal Inc. SAS M-7 Classic rifle in 7.62x39. The M-7 means it was assembled in the USA using virgin Bulgarian parts and an authentic milled receiver. The Classic means it has a traditional AK-47 Type III medium heavy barrel with 45 degree gas block. And the SAS means it has the early pattern of underfolding metal tubular buttstock. Here we look at the rifle itself, and then we compare it with the Bulgarian Arsenal SAM7R-61 and a Hungarian SLR100H AK-55 kit build.

Arsenal Scope Mounts - Featuring the SM-13, SM-13K, and the SM-13V
The scope mounts provided by Arsenal are the products of exceptional research and development. These side-attaching, tension adjustable scope mounts were developed and tested in the toughest conditions to perform without failure. Featuring one-piece construction, and CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminum, each variant offers minimum weight (only 5.76 ounces SM-13), maximum strength for increased reliability, and streamlined design keeping the mount unobtrusive during use. Arsenal has also incorporated a relief cut along the rail allowing the use of iron sights even when the scope mount is attached to the rifle.

Arsenal SAM7SF AK-47 Accuracy
The accuracy out of my Arsenal SAM7SF is much better now on my second range session than from my first (likely user error, but it possibly needed some breaking in and an initial cleaning). Now this AK 47 shoots like a champ. I can't say that my grouping is stellar, but I think that's something I personally need to work on. I was using Red Army Standard ammo.

In this video, we dig into the history of one of the most interesting rifles to come in from Bulgaria. Back in 2004, Arsenal Inc. briefly imported the SLR-105. It was built by Arsenal AD, and it marked 2 firsts for the company. First semi-auto on a stamped receiver, and first to be chambered for the 5.45x39mm cartridge. Also, it was one of the earliest AK models to be released after the sunset of the Federal Assault Weapons Ban.

This is an Arsenal SLR 104 FR AK-74 chambered in 5.45x39. This Ak is the smoothest sooting i have ever shot with the least amount of recoil. It is a Bulgarian made ak-74 Arsenal import. We haven't had any issues what so ever with this rifle. During the filming we had a Silver Bear round dud the primer was hit and the round never fired and that is the first time ever with this ammo. The weapon also has a folding stock. Arsenal rifles are of excellent quality and very reliable.
