    I would say Bulgarian is very good quality... Ive never seen this particular one in person...



    Edited;;;;; there is a thread on akforum.net in the Bulgarian section. The slant brake is welded on. Thats kinda of a bummer...

    Armoury USA guns....aka Global Trades. First it was Polish guns on FEG receivers, then Hungarian guns on FEG and GT receivers, now its Bulgarian parts.

    Wanna see the new Bulgarians??

    I don't think i'll ever own an Arsenal gun. AKs fill a specific need for cheap, high-volume firepower to me. If Arsenals were regularly holding 1 to 2 MOA with high-quality ammo, then I would look hard at them. As far as I know, no US-available AKs are regularly that accurate. I can't justify spending more that an AR would cost on an AK, no matter how nice it's finished.

    Not that they're not great guns, and if I had tons of extra income to build up a collection, an Arsenal would be there. Maybe some day.

    they are more accurate than you think, just like the Saiga. You just have to use good ammo...they can hold their own, the only limitation is the sight radius/ammo, a 5.56 AK will do the same thing a 16" AR can do. Its not a precision weapon, but its not as inaccurate as most people think. Most are spoiled by peep sights and tend to yank the trigger. I've rarely seen shooters around keep 1-2 on irons with an AR- I have taken lots of money at the range...:D

    Dang, 60 rounds and 3 holes? You're either really good or really bad...

    Kidding man, and I get your point. I like the AK platform a lot, and I appreciate the fact that you like them enough to put that much cash into it. Heck, I've got over a grand in my AR-15 SBR and all it does is go bang real loud. Everyone's got their own preferences.

    Just bought and shot a SLR-107CR,shooting Wolf rounds and it was nicely accurate (for my tastes anyways)also took out our Lancaster at the same time...both fired well...but for more accurate distance firing 2MOA the wifes RRA LAR-15 (.223) seems to do the job.

    yes,we have developed a passion for various AK's and plan on a few more (a 1975 Bullpup and a M70AB2) hopefully going to pick em up tomorrow at the gun store.Any advice on WASR 10's?

    I just ordered a SLR107FR, I'm eagerly awaiting it's arrival. However on AKForums some people have recieved theirs with canted sights. I hope that's not the case. I was expecting top-notch quality for Arsenal's top-dollar price.
