Arsenal no longer deals with the Russian SGL line, FIME Group took that over. They are still the same, just a different name on the side of the receiver.
Arsenal only does the Bulgarian SLR line.
I own an SGL21 and a SLR106. I personally prefer the SLR106, but that is because of caliber, both are excellent rifles.
I definitely want 7.62x39. The nearest shop that carries them is 2 hrs away in the city my folks live in. I am planning to go up there soon, I guess I'll have to look at them hands on to decide.
Someone mentioned having the receiver modified to accept standard mags. Do they not accept any standard AK mag?
