anyone have one? IM thinking this is going to be my Sept 13 gun.

If it doesn't ship with a folder (not fixed) how hard is it going to be to remedy that? Id aslo like to thread the barrel and put on a slant brake

I live the Arsenal AKs triggers feel like one of the best next to RSA

The slant brake is no biggie , any smith could do that.

I believe however ,that it would require Major modifications to turn that
model into a functioning folder.

Arsenal could make a folder after AWB , don't know if they will or not.

could I just buy the appropriate size die and thread teh barrel myself? there are no competant gunsmiths around here other than Gander moutain and Fin And Feather. both have like a 6 week wait and turnaround.

You can by a threading kit. It's probably cheaper to send it to ORF or AK-usa or Krebs.

BE CAREFUL!!!! I have been told that the Arsenal SAM-7 rifle with the fixed underfolder is more for cosmetic purposes than anything. I don't think you will be able to just "un-pin" it, like the ones Atlantic Firearms is offering. (The Polish ones built on an Ohio Ordnance receiver)

Arsenal will be able to reactivate the stock, it was actually designed so that they could do that fairly easily. While it's there, have them thread the muzzle.

Then it's under warranty and you've got the original company doing the work for you.

Good luck, they are beautiful rifles!



thats my plan My local gunshop will be open midnight sept 12 having a sale in the weee morning of the 13 And I want him to order me this with a folder and slant brake

All the ones built are already in the supply pipeline..., which means you'd still have to send it back to get all gussied up to proper configuration.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings....



bah your right I gave them a call and they said more or less the same thing

WTF? why make such a great rifle in such a short run? I have a feeling the price is going to reflect this super special unobtanium rifle. he said it can be converted back to a real folder but didnt really tell me how. oh well looks like the SAS M-7 is out of the picture now mabe a SAM 7 carbine

ETA: HOLLY SHIT $895.95 fot the SAS M-7 deffinatly out the window $532.95 for the SAM-7 carbine I can swing that

You won't be disapointed.

SAMs are the Bulgarian imports right not the US made recievers and barrels? The Bulgarian imports are less expensive and have Steyr Barrels

I would check with Arsenal on threading the barrel. I had an Arsenal SA-M7 Carbine and the front portion of the barrel was tapered considerably as compared to the rest of the barrel. In speaking with Chris at AK-USA, he said it may be tricky and possibly require welding.
