Arsenal SAM7R AK 7.62x39mm Semi-automatic Rifle
From Arsenal®, the premier importer of fine AK-47 variants, comes this excellent Bulgarian-made AK. Each SAM7R receiver is milled from a hot-die hammer-forged receiver blank by the Arsenal Co. of Bulgaria.
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.
Each forged receiver blank requires over 5.5 hours of milling before assembly. This forging and milling process is complex and time-intensive, but this meticulous attention to detail delivers a receiver of unequaled strength, precision and durability that does the AK-47 name justice.
