I was just doing some AK shopping and browsing, most likely for an Arsenal.

I know the general consensus here is that Atlantic Firearms is great and folks seem to swear by them. I order an AK through them just over a year ago and was very happy with the result. I was wondering if there were any other vendors that had an equally good and trustworthy reputation? How about K-Var? Any word on them?

Thanks!

K-Var is the primary outlet for anything Arsenal. They're GTG. As far as other vendors, there's an entire list of industry partners on the site that cater to AK stuff. Other than that, companies that I've had good dealing with are (off the top of my head):

CenterfireSystems
Copes Distributing
Apex Gun Parts
Aim Surplus
JG Sales

JG sales
AIM surplus (also really like these guys)
Classic Arms
Mississippi Auto Arms

AIM surplus- my go-to guys, I always check with them first, rifles and ammo/accessories
Centerfire

For accessories and ammo:

Primary Arms
SGammo
Palmetto State Armory
Apex Gun Parts
CNC Warrior
JoeBob Outfitters
Csspecs

and lots of good small vendors out there. The EE here on arfcom is an awesome resource for parts and rifles.

Atlantic Firearms is awesome.

I have had a great experience with AIM, Centerfire, JG Sales and Atlantic. Although JG Sales does take some of the accessories included with the rifle, their prices sometimes make up for it.

Just purchased a SGL31 from Atlantic Firearms. Great to work with, very helpful customer service. The rifle is great but Atlantic is just a really great vendor to work with, I'd go back to them in a heartbeat (actually, in all likelyhood, probably sooner than later).

Hard to believe no one has mentioned Carolina Shooters Supply yet, one of the very best in the business for parts/accessories.

I'll also add LegionUSA to the list. Excellent for both firearms and hard to find accessories.

Apex
Kvar (shipping can take a little long)
J& g sales

Forgot about CSS, they are a good vendor with an awesome selection of AK stuff.

Also forgot to mention JSE surplus, they have way more AR stuff, but they do carry AK parts and have good prices and outstanding service.

Copes Distributing sometimes has good deals, just bought a couple of nice yugo pouches at a great price and with free shipping.

Alex at russiansurplus.net is a good guy and an arfcommer, he makes some good deals at times and ships fast.

Thanks to everyone for chiming in. That helps a lot. Finding vendors to purchase from is one thing, but finding ones that folks trust implicitly, had really positive experiences with, and swear by is really valuable to know. Happy customers say good things, angry ones say bad things and swear a lot

I got my most recent Arsenal from K-Var and was very impressed with the service. The rifle shipped the same day.
