    Still considering other 5.45x39 caliber rifles? Learn more facts other companies don’t want you to know below!


    Don’t be a victim of unethical companies that sell you rifles put together from used, sub-standard, after-market parts as new rifles.
    What you get when you buy from other companies:
    • Used parts kits added to substandard receivers and barrels

    • Parts that have already been used beyond their expected life span

    • New Parts that are reverse engineered to look somewhat like the originals but do not offer the same quality, durability and functionality

    • Rifles assembled using un-orthodox, non-standard manufacturing techniques that will not pass QA acceptance of real AK factories

    • Rifles that will not pass any of the original factory gauges (none of the real manufacturers will release those rifles due to safety guidelines and liabilities)

    • The embarrassment of owning of a crappy rifle

    Yep, I just passed up a Century 5.45 that had the 5.56 barrel installed, got an SGL-21 instead and couldn't be happier.

    :rofl: “Don’t be a victim of unethical companies”- would be a good time to mention that Izhmash considers every US-built AK a counterfeit.

    “strict guidelines set by M. T. Kalashnikov” – It supposed to be a good thing? I wouldn’t trust a hammer if the technology behind it was developed by this illiterate fraud.

    How do you reconcile “100% brand new military spec” and “Arsenal Inc’s exclusive”? How do you reconcile “100% brand new military spec” and “semi-auto only” when speaking of AK?

    From what I understand KVar puts together nice AK look-alikes. Why the need for cheap-ass crap like that?

    Its their anti-Century campaign. The next big move besides M.K. autographed
    $5000 5.45 rifles that they showcased at the shotshow would be to get MK to do a special video ad where he compares a century wasr to a new Russian AK 103 and goes nuts on the WASR like maybe calling a fake spitting on it cussing at it in Russian and shooting at it. Well, I am just saying it seems like they are getting serious about competing with primate international arms's wasr 10.

    I'd rather get a 100% Russian Saiga straight off the assembly line(does Russia have assembly lines?) and do it myself.

    Oh wait, I did! Except the stock is Romanian now, but it doesn't say that anywhere on it and it's a copy of the East German folder so.........

    Bottom line is that I like it and built it that way and take pride in doing just that.

    None of us would have AK's if we had issues with crappy rifles!
