SHOT Show 2020 Video: Arsenal AK20

posted on January 26, 2020
Arsenal Arms has long been known as kind of the Cadillac of AKs, offering high-quality semi-automatic variants of the AK-47 platform. Receivers are milled rather than stamped, triggers are definitely not the standard slappy AK triggers and many other improvements over the ubiquitous, utilitarian rifle. While the company's offerings tend to be more pricey than other AK-47 variants, many feel the upgrades are well-worth the money (and, honestly, shoot one before you complain about the price. Seriously). 

We got a chance to look at the new AK20 series at Industry Day at the Range ahead of SHOT Show 2020. This version features an adjustable gas block (suppressed/unsuppressed/single shot), upgraded trigger and threaded barrel for suppressor addition. It's a sweet-shooting rifle (Arsenal happened to have the SBR version on the range, which is supremely fun to shoot, for the record...) and ran amazingly well. Check out the new AK20 in the video and stay tuned for more videos from SHOT Show 2020.
