As we reported back in July, Arsenal promised to release a “real GAME CHANGER.” Well, HERE IT IS! The SAM7SF rifle. [Press release after the jump.] The big news? It’s got a right-folding stock on a forged and milled receiver with an ambidextrous safety. The receiver manufacturing process kicks ass (allegedly) because “While firing, the forged and milled receiver does not have the same deformation issues that are typical to stamped receiver models. The stamped receiver usually flexes and warps during these operations, and can be observed with a high speed, slow motion camera. The solid platform of the forged and milled receiver ensures superior accuracy.” So, legendary reliability in a not-so-flexy 7.62×39 caliber AK plus reliability. Now how much would you pay? All yours for $1349 while supplies last! Arsenal only has 500 units on offer. For now . . .
(LAS VEGAS) –With a lot of patience, practice and fine-tuning, Arsenal, Inc. perfected and released what it believes to be best in its lineup to date. The SAM7SF rifle is the latest in a small group of firearms to join the SAM family and incorporates smarter, more comfortable features for the American enthusiast.
The 7.62×39 caliber SAM7SF rifle utilizes the Bulgarian right-folding tubular buttstock. This stock leaves enough clearance both for the charging handle and the trigger. Since the stock on this rifle folds to the right side, it allows the shooter to leave a scope mount attached while carrying the firearm in the folded position. Even more — the rubber butt plate provides a more comfortable alternative to its bare metal predecessors by sitting against the shooter’s shoulder more firmly and helps lessen recoil impact.
The new ergonomic pistol grip is designed and manufactured specifically to work with the ambidextrous safety lever even when the stock is folded, letting the shooter operate the safety without overstretching his hand or letting go of the grip.
Released only as an American manufactured limited edition nearly 8 years ago, both Arsenal, Inc. and Arsenal of Bulgaria spent the last couple of years refining this rifle to make it near perfect and extremely affordable. While some units from the limited edition have been retailing for over $3000 recently – the newer, more meticulously crafted SAM7SF comes with an introductory price tag of:
Retail Price: $1349.00 | First 500 Units
After the initial 500 units are sold, the price jumps slightly to $1599, which is still well under the MSRP of $1650. The SAM7SF is immediately available for sale beginning Wednesday, August 7th.
Additional specifications for this unique 7.62x39mm caliber rifle include: a forged & milled receiver proven to increase accuracy, a chrome-lined, hammer-forged barrel, muzzle brake, 24×1.5mm muzzle threads, bayonet and accessory lugs, a redesigned black polymer pistol grip, hand guards, stainless steel heat shield, the modern and convenient ambidextrous safety lever, sectional cleaning rod, shipped with one 10-round magazine, sling, oil bottle, and cleaning kit.
