Our Assessment:  After undergoing our very official wiggle test, you will be happy to hear that this is a rock solid AK build that isn’t just for show. The SAM7R rifle was specifically designed to be an exact replica of the currently issued Bulgairan AR-M1. Each SAM7R’s receiver is milled from a hot-die hammer forged receiver blank over the course of 5 ½ hours by Arsenal, Bulgaria. Arsenal’s attention to detail provides a receiver with reliable strength, precision, and durability. The reinforced side folding stock offers compact power or increased accuracy. The charging handle of this AK47 variant glides like butter and the safety cover perfectly aligns with the receiver. You want this firearm in your arsenal (pun intended) for its good looks and smooth operation, threaded barrel, chrome lined hammer forged barrel,  and scope rail.  A personal favorite of the SAM family of AK47’s.  This is the top quality build of Kalashnikov rifles that every collection needs.  Good Luck!
