I finally bought an AK. Its an Arsenal.
after studying it a bit and stripping it to clean it...
Why are there two detents for the lever in the hand guard assembly latch? I have to rotate it to vertical to get the handguard out. Does it go back into the lower detent or the upper one?
How much lube is needed on the bolt? wet like an AR or light?
Cant help you on the handguard issue, but I will be one of the first to congratulate you on a great AK buy.
ARSENAL makes some of the finest civilian AKs (or military for that matter) anywhere. Especially USA made ones.
What model did you get?
Own the Carbine (SA M7) myself and could not be happier with it
BTW: You will get many times the looks and traffic if you post your thread in the AK Discussion Forum
