Arsenal, Inc. Releases SAM7SF 7.62×39

Arsenal, Imc. SAM7SF 7.62x39

(GunNews.com) – Arsenal, Inc., of Las Vegas says its new SAM7SF rifle incorporates smarter, more comfortable features the American enthusiast will appreciate. The SAM7SF went on sale last Wednesday, August 7.

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. Also, the rubber butt plate provides a more comfortable alternative to its bare-metal predecessors .

The new ergonomic pistol grip is designed 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 new SAM7SF comes with an introductory price tag of $1349 for the first 500 units. After the initial 500 units are sold, the price jumps to $1599.

Additional specifications for this 7.62x39mm caliber rifle include: a forged & milled receiver, 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, an ambidextrous safety lever, sectional cleaning rod, one 10-round magazine, sling, oil bottle, and cleaning kit.

    Sixteen Hundred dollars? For an AK platform? Double the retail it should sell for. I guess only the Very well off are going to be buying rifles in the future. I certainly will Not.

    I won’t be buying one at that price! Probably be able to pick up some really nice guns off the streets very soon!

    This appears to be a very nice rifle, but I have to say the price point is really high for an AK platform. At this price range, I can think of a number of better rifles to purchase for not much more and are much better overall values..

    These rifles have are noted for rather mediocre accuracy and there are (in my opinion) many better military style rifles to purchase. I think part of this is related to the hysteria purchasing that we are seeing today as part of our gun culture. Good luck purchasing 22 lr for practice.

    I for the most part have put my firearms in storage and will not shoot them or even my shotguns because I feel the costs have pushed the blue collar worker out of the shooting-as-recreation market. I am now concentrating exclusively on archery and practicing with BB guns and soft pellets. In the end, this “faux constriction” will utlimately hurt the firearms industry when the dust settles. I won’t be as involved in shooting, and am now going to casting my own bullets, reduced loading and concentrating on other skills. As bullets and bullet accessories increase in price, I will purchase less and use my money more wisely and effectively. The end result is the the manufacturers are literally cutting off their nose to spite their faces.

    After the idiot hoarders have had their fill of bullets, we normal regular customers will have left for greener pastures and manufacturers will charge more for less–but we will all be purchasing less. Ultimately both the manufacturers and the shooting community will be both the most hard hit and have the most to lose.

    Pretty much anything from Arsenal is going to be pricy. The article says it will have a milled receiver, not a stamped sheet metal one. This will drive up costs, then there’s also the matter of the value of the dollar dropping like a stone because of the printing presses running night and day at the treasury. That drives up prices as well. I won’t be buying one at that price. The quality may be very good, but I’ll just have to go for lower quality and a lot more ammo. For that kind of money, I could buy an FAL with a paratrooper stock and have a weapon that would also function as a good hunting rifle out to 400+ yards. Maybe further depending on the ammo and optics mounted on it. Or I could buy a VZ 2008, dozen+ magazines and a few thousand rounds of ammo.

    This greed with the gun manufacturers is beginning to turn me off. Like faultroy said, maybe its time to store the firearms and pick up another sport.
