Arsenal Inc SAM7K-34 AK Pistol Details

From what we can see, this is a nice addition to the U.S. market. The SAM7K comes with a quick detach port and threaded front sight block. It comprises a standard Krink configuration with 24×1.5 RH threads. The pistol features authentic, high-quality parts, Arsenal Inc says.

Each pistol utilizes a receiver milled from a hot-die hammer-forged blank. Arsenal claims the hot-die forgings produce stronger, finer-grained steel. The process also eliminates internal voids and cooling deformations via the 5-ton hammer forging.

The pistol comes with one five-round mag, oil bottle, cleaning rod and cleaning kit. The SAM7K retails for $1,799.99. For even more info, please visit
