Classic Kalashnikov Appearance & Reliability PLUS Performance Upgrades
What if somebody built an AK-47 to the same standards of fit and finish as a high-end AR-15 or a SIG 556? And maybe upgrade it to be more accurate and comfortable to shoot, less like a bare bones weapon born of wartime desperation? The Arsenal SAM7SF is just such a rifle. It’s built around a rock-solid forged-then-milled receiver that is exceptionally strong, mated to a hammer-forged, chrome-lined barrel manufactured using advanced Steyr barrel technology.
Even better, the Arsenal SAM7SF is fitted with a right-side folding tubular steel stock that won’t interfere with any optic you install on the left-side scope mounting rail. And it can be fired with the stock folded because you can easily access the left-side lever of the SAM7SF’s ambidextrous safety.
The SAM7SF’s reinforced molded polymer furniture includes a stainless steel heat shield in the lower half of the forend to keep your mitt cool during sessions of sustained fire. You’ll find the ergonomically enhanced pistol grip is extremely comfortable and far better in helping you control the rifle than the standard lump of Bakelite still found on many Kalashnikovs.
And you’ll want to shoot your SAM7SF a lot because of its smooth, consistent trigger pull, and fast, positive reset - unusual for any service rifle, let alone an AK! Fortunately, you can shoot this AK a lot because its chrome-lined bore lets you use the super-cheap milsurp ammo with corrosive primers - just make sure you clean the gun pronto after every range session.
We offer the SAM7SF in three versions:
- SAM7SF-84 comes with a black polymer stock
- SAM7SF-84P has a plum-colored polymer stock that replicates the look of old-style Soviet plum-finished wood stocks
- SAM7SF-84R has a machined aluminum PR-01 Picatinny Quad Rail Handguard System for AR-15 like versatility in mounting accessories
All models feature a one-piece removable AK-74 type muzzle brake, a bayonet lug for accessories that require one, rugged military-type front/rear sights, and 4-groove, 1-9.44" (240mm) rifling. These rifles accept ANY magazine that fits standard 7.62x39mm Kalashnikov rifles; one 10-round mag included. You also get a sling, cleaning rod, cleaning kit, and an oil bottle.
Arsenal’s SAM7SF is constructed of 100% new-manufactured parts made in Bulgaria and the U.S., so it’s fully compliant with Title 18 USC Section 922(r) parts-source restrictions.
