New From Arsenal: SLR-106UR Pistol

Do you like you some AKesque 5.56 pistol action? Arsenal’s just intro’d a new one that has all the seksiness of a an AK-74 style pistol, but in 5.56×45 NATO. With a scope rail, too! Press release after the jump . . .

Arsenal, Inc. introduces the all-Bulgarian SLR-106UR Pistol in 5.56x45mm NATO. The SLR-106UR Pistol is manufactured entirely at Arsenal’s factory in Kazanlak, Bulgaria using components specifically engineered for accuracy and reliability in a short-barrel configuration.

The SLR-106UR Pistol includes many features not found on any similar 5.56mm pistol, and is as close to a semi-automatic AKS-74U (or ‘Krinkov’) as American shooters may possess without ATFE approval.


  • Factory-installed scope rail allows mounting of optics and accessories
  • Short gas system designed for 100% reliability
  • 10.5” cold hammer-forged barrel with hard-chrome plated bore and chamber
  • Hinged dust cover with close-range and 500 meter rear sight settings
  • Replica muzzle device is pressed and pinned to the front sight block for AK-74SU appearance
  • High-quality polymer furniture includes an ergonomic SAW pistol grip and heat-shielded lower handguard for shooting comfort
  • Reinforced pistol grip base for added strength and durability
  • Spring-loaded firing pin for increased safety with Boxer-primed ammunition
  • 90 degree rear sling swivel prevents twisting or tangling
  • AKS-74U-style rear block for conversion to SBR configuration; all NFA rules apply*


Whether fired as a pistol or converted to a registered short-barreled rifle*, Arsenal’s SLR-106UR Pistol delivers unmatched quality and unique features in a firearm that will provide many years of accurate and reliable service.
