    Arsenal vs anyone else

    Looking to get an Arsenal Sam7k 44, but wanted to get the opinions of the others on this forum.

    It’s very difficult to get the Arsenal. Would there be an appreciable difference to get a WBP or a Zastava M92 pistol? The only thing I would miss out on would be it being milled and the chrome lined barrel.

    I don’t mind paying for it, but it is so hard to find and the uncertainty of Arsenal doing another release makes me wonder if I could get similar from what brands and models that are available.

    I have also considered a Galil Ace GAP but it’s too far an aesthetic departure for me.

    Thanks in advance for your opinions!

    Zastava would be my vote. I owned an Arsenal at one point. It was not worth the price I paid for it.

    I just bought an Arsenal SAM7K and I am happy with the quality of it. The only thing is that the flash hider does not come off and you need to send it back to get the correct threaded front sight base installed at $200.

    From a quality standpoint, the Galil Ace is above the Zastava and Arsenal options. In general, the Arsenals are overpriced. Kalashnikov USA will hopefully put some pricing pressure on them. The M92 pistol is a good choice, but it would help knowing what your end goal is. Are you going to keep it as a pistol or are you going to make it an SBR?

    Great. Are you planning to make an original factory configuration or are you planning to use an aftermarket folder?

    I have been seriously considering selling my ZPAP92 Under folder to fund another project. Only reason I would is because I a couple 92s. Probably would sell it for less then a Sam7k too

    How common are the Yugo UF stocks nowadays? Might be tough to find one for an M92 clone.

    They are still out there. Alot of them have been repaired or need repaired though. I did get lucky and found 2 really good ones that Im saving for my other 92's.

    I think the Arsenal Sam7k 44 would not work then because the receiver is not made for the rifle's folder.

    Do you have a preference for a side folder or underfolder?

    Sure it would. You just have to unpin the rear block and mill out the receiver. Not mine but check it out.

    That's not a factory configuration, though it does look like a cool gun. It could be a Tortort receiver.
    Here's the factory configuration:

    Note that it's a right side folder instead of a left side folder.

    Still looks better though milling out the milled receiver and adding a triangle stock IMO. The milled receivers can be milled easily for a side folder. Its been done a few times.
