Picked up my new Arsenal SAS M-7 "no-ban" with flash hider and bayonet lug on Tuesday...finally took a couple of pics of it.

Yes, this is the one that costs in excess of $1000...

Very nice Sigurd. Congratulations!

I have the SAM-7s which this reminds me of, save the folder and muzzle device

what do you think of the flash suppressor/muzzle brake? Does it screw on/off, or is it welded?

That is an awsome looking AK

I was told that this model is very limited and will be hard to get, will Arsenal make more available?

artificially limited and hard to get. I think Arsenal is being really gay by charging twice what a SAM-7 goes for for a flash hider, underfolder and bayonet lug. They could make as many as they want.

still a beautiful rifle.

Damn nice looking! There is just something about a milled AK. A milled underfolder too boot. I'm jealous.

Howdy fellas,
First, that is a sweet piece right there. Its a damn shame how arsenal is handling the NO-Ban transition however.
I have a question for anyone who would know though....I have an SAM7s which I would like to change from the muzzle brake to the ARM1 flash hider. If i recall correctly, a new FSB is needed for this.
Can anyone here confirm a parts list for that conversion, and what type of equipment is needed.
Thanks guys
John F

Does anybody have a link to these "No-Ban" rifles on Arsenal's website? I'll be damned if I can find any mention of them.

Here is a link to the rifle on Arsenal's page...

www.arsenalinc.com/sasm7pre.html

Lew Horton's (who had all of these rifles) has been sold out of them for almost 2 weeks now.

The flash hider screws off by hand, it's retained by a plunger in the FSB.

As for putting one of these flash hiders on a regular SA M-7...you will need to put on a '74 FSB and then it will just screw on.

Odd, did Arsenal just update there website recently? Like in the past two weeks? I swear it hasn't been that long since I checked. Well anyway, thanks for the link.

Do you know what the procedure for changing the FSB on a SAM7s, specifically if it requires a press and or jig, or if its just pins like an AR?
Thank you

I've never done it myself, but I think you need a press. You could try asking in one of the build it yourself forums, I'm sure there is someone there who knows.

Very nice rifle. It sucks how Arsenal is sticking it to us after the ban.

I think its been there for a month or so, but you have to look for it under it's product number, after selecting caliber, etc.

It wasn't promoted at all in the intro or the product cover page- oddly enough

unusual company - Arsenal.

they arguably have the best AK-styled weapons available, yet they do little to promote the fact
