I am thinking about picking up an Arsenal SA M-5 milled 5.56 ak. What are your opinions out there about these?

Should I wait for a stamped version to eventually be produced by Arsenal, or just get a milled one now?

I am just trying the weigh the pros and cons.

From what I have gathered Arsenal has ceased production of the 5.56 guns due to lack of sales so you might want to go ahead and pick up a milled one.

I would never sell the one I have, it's never failed me once and very accurate. The mags may be kinda expencive for now but they are worth it since they look like they will last forever. Just get some of the black waffles they are steel lined and won't rust.

If you know a place that has one I recommend you get it asap if you can.

Got one lined up.

Price might be a little high around $680 OTD, but I think this might be a snooze you loose kind of gun.

Get a SAM5 stat. Hard to find now. I think it is the perfect mix of reliability and ammo viability. (other AK calibers have no development going on). the Sam5 fit and finish is great, and many have the spring loaded firing pin so you can fire boxer and berdan primed ammo without issues.
