I have a new in the white Bulgarian SLR-100H receiver. I bought it to build my Russian kit on. I didn't really care that it was press and pin instead of threaded.

Well, now I'm going to so much trouble making this gun as nice and authentic as possible... the idea of press and pin build would probably bother me later. So I'm thinking of selling it to buy a Firing Line receiver for threaded barrels. Especially since they moved the eagle to the bottom and will be doing cryillic selector markings.

You guys think I could get $390 for an SLR-100H rec? I'd really like to sell it for what the new FL receiver will cost me.

This is just my opinion but if you want an authentic Russian type III copy I think you're still better off with a bulgarian milled receiver than a Firing Line. The machining on the Bulgarian receiver is much more authentic (selector notch, mag well lightening cut) , as is the style of serial number.

If you don't like the exposed pin look you can have the area silver soldered and file it smooth.

Don't get me wrong, function and quality wise there's nothing wrong with the Firing Line receiver but everytime I see one it just bugs me on how they do the machining.

I am not a builder but would agree with what Darkest said. I bought a Gordon Tech SLR 100H and you cannot tell where the barrel is pinned. InRange has it now to install the side sling swivel and switch out the neutered Hungarian gas block and FSB with Russian parts.

I'm also thinking of going with the FL receiver because they will build the rifle pretty low cost with a decent turn around.

I was going to have IGF build it.. but I really don't feel like waiting 6 months again for a build. Plus he charges alot to build an AK.

Heres mine...

Need to get the FSB and Gasblock done too!!!

What is INRANGE charging for that???

BIG +1, keep the one you have ...

Going back to your original question, I think you would be hard pressed to find a buyer that would pay you $390 for an Arsenal receiver.

Arsenal complete rifles can be found used for not much more than that.
I picked up a used SLR95 for $475 not too long ago. I've seen them go for less but missed the oportunity.

I spy an AKM brake on that AK-47 clone!

I think you're hitting the pipe a little too hard. A complete Arsenal gun, like a SAM-7 Carbine can be had for about $650. Almost $400 for just the receiver is a bit too much. But you never know. List it and see what happens.
Link Posted: 12/7/2005 11:48:32 PM EDT
the 100h is getting rare
id say its worth 350 ish
but i agree with everyone else
its a better rec than the FL and more correct even with the press and pin
Link Posted: 12/7/2005 11:58:24 PM EDT
At $350 for a 100H receiver, it's cheaper to buy a SLR95 or maybe even a SA M-7, strip the parts and sell them as a kit, then use the receiver.

Somebody is smoking crack.

a 100h rec is undrilled

so its not the same
Link Posted: 12/8/2005 5:16:57 AM EDT

I am in the market for one of those SLR100H receivers, but when they hit $300 last summer I was priced out of the market.

I could afford it, but I don't want to feel raped everytime I look at it.
Link Posted: 12/8/2005 5:39:40 AM EDT
$390.00 is just about what I paid for each of 2 SLR100H rifles I once owned so I wouldn't give you that but if you have a buyer go for it.

I don't see much diffrerence in the barrel pin hole being undrilled.

Yeah skeet, put down the crack pipe. $390 is ridiculous and absurd to boot. Obvioulsy, the bulgy receiver is more correct (even being pinned). You just want the build faster so you can live your fantasy of screaming, "WOLVERINES!!!!" with an AK above your head on Bragg Blvd.

ETA: this thread needs a poll

What engraved and what company?

I'm having Tom Sawyer Mfg do Russian selector markings and the arsenal mark.
Link Posted: 1/7/2006 6:11:32 AM EDT
I can't wait to see this build - say, where did you get that nice Russian kit at?

I will echo what the others said, the Bulgarian is a better receiver. It is milled from a forging and is pretty true to the type III Russian pattern. The Firing Line Receivers are nice and getting more authentic, but I would still do the Bulgarian with your kit. They also do great builds

Actually a wonder if there is enough "meat" to actually thread the receiver?

How and why would they neuter the gas block on a type III?I had a G-Tech SLR100,they cut the hooks off of the FSB because thats where the bayonet attaches on a type III but the gas block was intact.

I got the kit from Sportsmans Guide about a year ago, before all the nice ones dried up. Its a nice kit, just not numbers matching. No big deal to me.

Once I get the receiver back its all going to IGF for assembly, then to Missouri Custom Armament for hot bluing. It should turn out really nice.
