I need some help on what ak to keep and what to sell. If you had both guns which would you keep? Is there a big difference in quality? The slr-100h is built by Gordan-tech on milled Arsenal receiver and the sa-m7 is by Arsenal of Nevada.

Please help me, Joe

I thought I more or less already answered this for you.

It depends on who the builder of the SLR-100H was and what the difference in
price is. Gordon Tech is on of the best

The Arsenal is not going to be a parts gun whereas the SLR-100H is Bulgarian
receiver and Hungarian rifle parts. Arsenal is all factory built to be one

But if it's a SLR-100H is built by Blue Ridge or Gordon Tech and is under $550.00
or even $600.00 and the only model of new Arsenal is the SA M-7 R for MSRP
of $850.00 then it is a decision you have to make.

If the SA M-7 is used and is around the same price of a SLR-100H then there
is no decision at all, you get the Arsenal SA M-7.


Now that you have both and want to sell one it is up to you to decide. I think the Arsenal factory built rifle would be the one to keep if you have to sell one. In my opinion the factory built rifle is more desirable than a parts gun even if the SLR-100H was one built by Gordon. I wouldn't sell either but in the long run I believe the Arsenal factory rifle will appreciate in value more over time.

Thanks for the help. I want to buy one Gordan built. It is for sale on the EE and I already have the sa-m7. Thank you again for your input.

If you are looking at the one that is $650.00 you then are going to have to pay a transfer fee for an FFL unless you have one that won't charge you and the guy may make you pay the shipping. Comes out at about $700.00 at that point. Sounds like top dollar for a used rifle made out of old Hungarian military AK-47 parts. I had two of these rifles and sold them for $550 each with extra poly stocks. New, these rifles went for under $450.00 when I bought mine.

A used SA-93, SLR-95, or SLR-96 for $550.00 or less are often available at gunshows or on the Equipment Exchange. I think these are better deals than a SLR-100H as the rifle is not a parts rifle of parts from two different countries, built by Arsenal and can be unbanned easily.

The SA-93 can be threaded for a muzzle device. The other two models have brakes that would have to be removed I believe. Lower tang has to be added for a regular milled buttstock but some of the receivers all ready have the relief cut so the receiver just needs drilled and the tang riveted in.

Very informative. Thank you for your time. I guess I will just keep my Arsenal sa-m7 no ban. I was just wanting to pick up an all Bulgarian rifle. I also have a Yugo Zastava m70 built on a DCIndustries rpk receiver, now that is a heavy duty gun.

Thanks again, Joe

I agree with "Mak." I have a G-Tech SLR-100H, but got lucky. All the parts are pristine. Keep your SA M-7. If you have the extra cash, by all means, go for the SLR-100.

If it were me, I wouldn't sell my SA M-7 to justify buying a Gordon Tech SLR-100H, although they are fine rifles in their own right.
