Arsenal, Inc. announced the expansion of its SAM7 Family products. The SAM7UF rifle is the latest in the growing group of firearms to join the modern SAM family and incorporates the latest technologies, quality, and workmanship the American market has come to expect from Arsenal and SAM7 series.

The SAM7UF is a 7.62x39 mm semi-automatic rifle, manufactured on Arsenal's hot-die forged and milled receiver and incorporates the modern under-folding buttstock. Loyal to its traditions, Arsenal has manufactured the SAM7UF rifle with all mil-spec and premium components, including the hard chrome lined hammer forged barrel, reinforced polymer pistol grip and hand guards, stainless steel heat shield, the 90-degree vertical gas block with bayonet/accessories lug, and the original 14x1 mm left-hand muzzle threads.

The SAM7UF utilizes the modern straight-back under-folding stock, which locks perpendicular to the action and the bore of the rifle. In order to provide a more secure and firm lock, whether in a folded or extended position, this stock locks on both sides of the receiver with 4 solid pins. This, with the additional reinforcement in the arms of the stock, stabilizes the rifle, which significantly reduces the climb, and gives the shooter much firmer control over the firearm for improved accuracy and effectiveness.

If the rifle looks familiar, it made a brief appearance as the SAS M-7 when Arsenal, Inc. released it as a limited run. Two years ago, Arsenal began serious work on a refined version that integrated maximum precision and new manufacturing processes. What cost just over $2,000 a few years ago will retail with the introductory price of $1,299 (MSRP).
