New AK Day

So I went to my first gunshow here in Florida, at the Tampa fairgrounds, and picked up an Arsenal. Not just any Arsenal but a SGL-31 in 5.45X39. Since I am from out of state I have to wait until Thursday to pick it up. Needless to say I cant wait!

Pics or it didn't happen.


“The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

I bought one on Tuesday, the Arsenal SGL21-61. I get it home and it is stamped FIME, not sure it matters but it was a shock to me. Is yours stamped Arsenal or FIME?

Can't post pics until I pick it up on Thursday. But as soon as I can I will. I'm so proud. Usually I have buyers remorse anytime I purchase a new gun but not this time.

Hmmm, I bought an SGL31 a couple of months ago and it was a Russian made Arsenal, I wonder if Arsenal Inc is out of Russian made AKs for now? The general consensus on the interwebs is that the Bulgarian made AKs are every bit as good as the Russian ones.

FIME Group is just the company that now deals with the SGL line, Arsenal only dose the SLR line now. FIME Group is a sister company to Arsenal, there is no degradation in quality, the only difference between them is the markings on the receiver.
