newfrontierarmory.com

Has anybody ever bought a rifle from them? I see their prices are a little cheaper than K-var.

I have tried atlantic, but they've been out.

I see newfrontierarmory.com has a 31-74. What's the difference between that and the 84?

I know some have had issues with their sights, but I have personally never picked up an Arsenal at any store that didn't have good straight sights. Seems like every other century gun has something crooked.

I would not go that far

I have had 4 Arsenals (2 Bulgy and 2 Russian) and have never had a canted sight. Even if I did get one with a cant to it, its not the end of the world and is a easy fix. A few hits with a deadblow hammer and they will usualy straigten out.

I've got a SGL31-84 from New Frontier Armory. Fast shipping, Great communication, overall good people to deal with.

I own an Arsenal AK and it has perfect sights. I've inspected at least ten at gun shows, and they have all had perfect sights. You're spewing bullshit. When I purchased my SGL-31, I had a question about their sight-in distance and called arsenal to ask about it. They were very courteous and helpful.

I know you are upset with your experience with them so you probably want to hurt their business...

...but saying they are notorious for canted sights is about the overstatement of the century.

I did not find the hundreds of people that you speak of. The first page of my google search had this as one of the results:

I believe in Arsenal AK's becuase of their workmanship and customer service. So, with that being said, the choice is yours.

this is a technical forum, not a rant forum. You want to rant, go to GD and rant. For someone with such a low post count you're starting off on the wrong foot. You don't like Arsenal, fine. There's companies I don't like, you just need to present it in a different manner. Perhaps like, "In my own experience, blah companies rifle came to me...." Or "I believe there are other options..." or "For the $, I had expected something better, but in my experience...." This just jumping into any thread that says Arsenal and you blowing your top about something that is completely unrelated (not this thread, but another) is annoying.


My opinion anyway...

Thats my first 5 entries theres alot more


THat's for sure not hundreds, and neither was the google searches I did.

Fact is, every AK builder on the market has put out guns with a flaw before. Even preban chicoms have been had with canted sights. Arsenal has done it, but it is much less common than the other manufacturers currently pumping out AKs by the thousands.

Your words "notorious" and "hundreds" are still the overstatement of the century.

I just got one, sgl-21 with a canted rear sight. I was going to send it back but the dealer got under the front sight block where one ear of the front sight would not go up high enough and fixed it somehow??

I got my SGL-31 from Davidsons who shipped to my FFL. Davidson's may not be the absolute lowest price but they have a lifetime warranty on everything they sell. I bought a 1911 a few years ago from Davidson's and the slide stop broke. I expected them to just send me a new slide stop and amazingly they shipped me a brand new 1911. IMO, the lifetime warranty is enough incentive to buy from them.
