i recently picked up an Arsenal SA M-5 5.56mm rifle - it has been out of production for a number of years, however, I wanted to know if anyone had recent experiences or reviews of its performance. Thanks!
All - greatly appreciated. I looked over the reviews and comments about the rifle from the 2000s, but had not seen much discussion about them in recent times. Glad to hear that the rifle is still has a good reputation!
Pretty. I had mine set up with wood for a short while as well.
7 or 8 years ago I took the SAM5 to a 1 day basic carbine class, which was an AR centric course as far as course of fire and how the drills were designed. The lead instructor took an instant dislike to me when he saw I had a 'commie gun', but the M5 using just irons was able to keep up with the AR's quite well and he lightened up a bit towards the end of the day. Round of choice that day was regular 55 grain .223 white box stuff BTW.
