Thanks alot

ARSENAL USA.(Las Vegas) is the company that is currently making the probably the best USAK's on the market. The rifle is a good mix of USA parts and bulgarian design. Alot of the parts on the rifle are stamped USA to avoid a 922r violation. My brother wound up getting one of their SAM-7's? (might be SA-7) It handles just as well as my SLR-95 is just as accurate, but it doesn't have the stupid thumbhole stock and seems to be lighter for the same reason. The Arsenal USA models are very impressive and don't use Garbage Romanian parts. Quite possibly the Best AK you can buy for under $800. (Unless you find a Krebs Custom model on sale)

It isn't Arsenal USA, though. That company is somewhere in TX, if memory serves me correctly.

Arsenal Kazanlak Bulgaria is the company in Vegas and has some kind of an affiliation with K-VAR. They have Bulgarian tooling and engineers, etc. I've heard nothing but good things about the SA-M7. I'd have gotten one myself but I'm waiting to see how the ar15.com LEGP AK plan works out.

Arsenal Kazanlak: 5015 W. Sahara Ave Suite 125
Las Vegas, NV 89146-3407


I don't think they have a website yet.

Are they making anything of interest now?
Seemed like the quality of their rifles went downhill fast after the SSR-b and c.

They're ok. they have not brought the quality up to their previous level, but they are better than just about any Romanian I've seen.

I still think the VEPRs and Arsenal Kazanlak KVARs are better choices for the money.
