    I just traded for an slr-95.Havent shot it yet but it was filthy,powder caked on gas tube.It looks like a really well made milled ak.It has a thumbhole stock,which it digging in my grip.I hate it.


    I believe Im going to keep this one.What can you tell me about these and what I would need to do to legally change out that thumbhole stock.


    I know nothing bout them.

    This was the last of the high quality Bulgarian import. I have one as well. I believe that the trigger mechanism was already switched out with US parts by the importer. You can look and see if there's any marking on the trigger parts though.

    I put the K-Var buttstock and pistol grip on. I'm not too happy with the K-Var stock. Feels flimsy to me.

    The muzzle brake works well in taming the recoil but makes some godawful noise.

    Then and now photos.

    it doesnt have a lower tang for the buttstock but its milled out for one and an extra hole is there.I checked and it indeed does have us fc group already in it. I am going to order a us stock set too, Ill need that lower tang to make it lock up tight, looks like a number 8 screw would work and a nut.Know a source besides kvar for the lower tang?

    The Bulgarian milled reciever AK's are as good as it gets in the AK world. I have two of them. One is a no-ban SA-M7 that came from the factory exactly the way an AK should. The other is a very early version that came with a thumbhole stock like yours. It has since been converted to a Galil folding stock, night sights, all the required US parts for 922 compliance, and the barrel was cut to 13.5" with a 4 piece Bulgarian Krink hider pinned on. I love that rifle.

    So I heard the barrels used on the 95 is a very well made barrel, I read up some last nite and supposedly they are rated at 80k service life,which is probably more than Ill ever shoot it but having a good barrel is very important in my purchases.Its not a new gun obviously but theres still alot of life left in it.

    I could use some mags,I have 2 now,wheres a good source?

    The reflex sight is a Meprolight M21. The mount was from ACE, Ltd. It incorporated a peepsight and replaces the original rear sight.

    FN SCAR is being upheld as having a hammer forged barrel life of 30,000 rounds with .223/5.56 over the FN M16 of 6,000 using a button rifled barrel.

    A well made hammer forged 7.62x39 barrel on either the Bulgarian or Russian
    modern varients is going to last no less than 50,000 rounds and with semiauto
    activity versus full auto more likely above 75,000.
    The same varient firing a 5.56 or 5.45 is not going to achieve the same round count service life because of a higher operating presure that erodes the barrel. From all relative information available on this topic, the 7.62x39 hammer forged barrels will outlast a 5.56 or 5.45 by at least twice as long.
    You got a very well made rifle with an exceptional barrel service life that you may never wear out unless you can manage to buy up 70 plus cases of ammo and burn it out, but even then it may just keep going. There was a recent thread on theakforum where a US soldier
    posted some pictures of an early Russian AK47 type 1 (stamped) that was in Afganistan with all original serial numbered parts. He claimed the barrel
    had no rifling left and still placed the fired bullets into a man sized target
    at 100 yards. I guess that is where those silly myths evolve of AK's being minute of soldier at 100 yards. The rifle he had probably had way over 100,000 rounds through it. I just can't imagine those bullets made it onto
    a target at that distance without keyholing due to lack of rifling.
    By the way it has what looks like a 1951 on the receiver.

    Thanks man.

    I don't even think Mike at the OKLA Firingline milled AK 47 receiver making facility has manageed to wear out his test rifle's chinese barrel rifling yet
    with over 100,000 rounds through it. The Type 1 mentioned in Afganistan certainly must have way more bullets through the barrel than Mike's test gun.

    Anyone remember Global Trades / Armory USA out of TX Jimmy their AK-47.net rep mentioned once about a customer of his that
    bought one of their Bulgarian SA 85 rifles in 7.62x39 and had a documented round count with the original barrel of over 100,000 rounds. According to the customer, even with that much wear it still managed groups within 6 MOA.

    Well, got everything ready to assemble for the required us parts. I ran into a snag. I was going to use screws where the rivets would go for the lower tang but decided to do it right and use the supplied rivets.Easy enough,have a smith do the rivets.

    Ended up having a machine shop install the 2 rivets.lol.no local smiths had the stuff to do it.

    Cool AK it is. I just slapped the appropriate US made parts on it, pistol grip, butt stock, hand gaurds, piston (although the newer ones are stamped USA on them, I just keep my reciept), trigger (2 pieces), and mag followers and it's compliant. The stock is only held on by one stock mount though. But it seems to have held up well. This thing actually has a better trigger pull on it than my AR and is just as accurate too. I don't shoot it enough though. I only have about 1500 rnds Wolf ammo stashed and am down to my last pulled bullet supply for reloads. I do have some Lee casting dies that I haven't messed with yet though.

    Bump fire a couple O' mags thru it and she'll be happy. Then validate with a Vincent Price laugh.
