What do you guys know about the milled Arsenal SA M5 rifles? I bought one on impulse today primarilly because of the price and the fact that I dont have a 5.56 AK. This one is the (S) NO BAN model with all the evil features. It was BRAND NEW in the box from a dealer at a local gunshow. He was wrapping up his operation when I looked. It was marked $599.00. He agreed to $549.00!!! Brand new in the factory box.

Anyway, are they reliable? Mags seem difficlut to get? How well are they built? Anything else would help me rationalize my purchase!!

I think I need to see a doctor...I believe I have Kalishnikovitis........

That's a fantastic price, actually close to cost. They're quite hard to find and the last I heard Arsenal wasn't shipping them till further notice.

I have one and I absolutely love it. I only use bulgarian mags I purchased from KVar and the rifle has been totally reliable. The Arsenal milled rifles are of excellent quality.

I just looked and found an ARSENAL SAM 5S on one of the auctions (GB) for $995.00. The seller states that the rifle is discontinued INdefinitely, so the seller seems to believe that this is a reasonable price??????????

I predict the seller will sit on that one for awhile.

The SA M5 S I bought has the side rail, bayo lug and threaded muzzle. Came with Bulgy FH. No clear mags, just one black waffle marked 10. I need more of those and am looking around!
