Is this SLR 101 S comparable to the SLR-95, Better, worse?

Anybody?

AFAIK, and I couldn't find the previous posts covering this topic-

The SLR-95 is imported into the country with the magwell opened to accept standard 30 rd magazines. It is equiped with a t-holes stock. (ie- it is a "sporter" model) US parts would need to be installed to legally add the correct stock and the lower tang for the rear stock is not present. ie. there's going to be some machine work to get the proper look + $ to add us parts. The rifle itself is priced lower than the 101 series...

The SLR-101S AFAIK, comes in with the magazine well cut undersized so as not to accept standard capacity mags. ARSENAL INC of Las Vegas NV then opens the mag well to accept standard capacity mags and adds the proper US parts in order to be compliant to the 1989 import ban. (922r)

In short, they're "exactly the same, only different". One needs converted unless you're happy with the T-hole stock and the other has been converted.

Does that help any? BTW- Welcome to the forums dgreketis

Thanks for the welcome.
In a nutshell this is what I want; An accurate representation of the AK-47 as close to the original minus full auto of course. I would like it to be a quality piece that looks as good as it shoots. I'm hoping I can find one in the $500 range. Does this rifle exsist?

That would surprise me- as I have two that are 922r converted and accept hi-cap mags.

Unless I'm forgetting a digit in my model number somewhere...

These were new from the factory- the box does show a t-hole rifle though/

It's still a bit confusing even with the "S" moniker. AFAICT, there's ads for the hi-cap version listed as model 101S on GunsAmerica as well as ATLANTIC's website.

I'm starting to get as confused as thinking about prancing Ponies. (Colt)

From this I'm gathering you want a copy of the Russian milled?

Chances are that you'll have to go with a custom build. The Bulgarian milled offerings which we covered; SLR-95, 101S- while it is IMHO one of the best offers out there, misses the mark as far as being authentic as it gets. Consider the Arsenal offerings:

A) Have a 90 degree gas block vs. the "old school" 45 degree.

B) The gas tube doesnt have the vent holes running horizontally.

C) Needs threaded with a muzzle protector (Muzzle nut) on the end.

D) Needs a bayo lug

E) The current SLR-101S runs ~$600 range. Better deals have popped up on the EE:

ar15.com/forums/forum.html?b=7&f=122

Of course since the 94 ban went bye-bye, there are new offerings and variants coming out. So this list isn't all-inclusive. It just seems that when the companies to throw out a "correct" variant, it costs.

I'm not sure how the LEGEND series by Norinc/Polytech stack up against the genuine issue Russian AKs. They're as close to correct for the Vietnam conflict as possible however they are rare and run 1K+... I'm not sure what type of bayonet the Russians used and whether the LEGEND misses the mark on bayonet attachment or not...

Hopefully someone with more wisdom than I on the subject can point you in the right direction.... *cough* There's more than a few here *cough*

I like that, it looks just like the SLR-95 without the thumb holer. Is that the only difference between the two? Also where can this rifle be purchased and how much?
