|Arsenal, Inc., the premier American importer and manufacturer of Kalashnikov-pattern rifles, is proud to offer to American shooters the Bulgarian-made SLR-101S. This 7.62x39 mm rifle combines authentic, high-quality features rarely seen in the American market. From its intermediate-length trapdoor buttstock to its removable four-port muzzle brake, every component of the SLR-101S is engineered to provide decades of dependable and accurate service. The SLR-101S rifle is bound to become a sought-after shooter and collectible firearm.|
Arsenal's Exclusive Milled And Forged Receiver:
Each SLR-101S receiver is milled from a hot-die hammer forged receiver blank by the Arsenal Co. of Bulgaria. Other milled-receiver AKs are machined from bar stock, but Arsenal's hot-die hammer forging produces stronger and finer-grained steel. Internal voids and cooling deformations are eliminated by the 5-ton hammer forging process.
Each forged receiver blank requires over 5.5 hours of milling before assembly. This forging and milling process is complex and time-intensive, but Arsenal's meticulous attention to detail delivers a receiver of unequalled strength, precision and durability.SLR-101S Features:
