Hey Guys,
This is my first post and I Would like some info. i just

purchaced my first AK a few day ago and can't seem to find much on it

from the internet. First I'll let you know what I know about it. It's

an Arsenal SA 93 Purchaced new in 1995 and has ben put away only to

have been fired for 5 rounds or so. I picked it up for $350.00 sight

unseen. I thought it was a descent price to pay for a good range gun.

After reading up on what I could on the net it seems that it might

have some collectable potential, and i'm not sure i want to put any

miles on it. I would like to know the makeup of this rifle, and what

I would need to do to ad a break/compensator to the barrell. Any

general or technical knowledge would be appreciated. I would like to

know all you know about the SA 93

Thanks
Eric

The only information I can give you, is that these were the first Bulgarian AKs imported into the U.S. They have a milled receiver vs. stamped, and they also have the AK-47 45 degree gas block, vented gas tube and front sight.

They can easily be converted into no-ban configuration by replacing the thumbhole stock with an "original" stock for milled receivers and adding a pistol grip. I believe the muzzle must be threaded to accomodate a brake or flash hider.

However, you don't list your place of residence, so I don't know if those changes would be lawful to do in your area.

He has the right gas block,the type III bayonet lug is considered the hooks on the FSB.It really would'nt take alot to make a nice type III out of this one.

You are right about the bayo lug. I don't know for certain, but I thought those had the smooth MAK90 style gas blocks (no slot for rod). It would be purely cosmetic, regardless.

He's in FL. He's good to go! :animak:

Turn that puppy into a T3 clone! You will need a lower stock tang installed for a regular buttstock, a new gas block and FSB, and the muzzle threaded to make it "right" again.

Type III?

What makes it a type III? I am no too concidered with a cleaning rod, but would like a folding stock, muzzle break, and bayo lug and pistol grip. Whats the deal with American parts? Do I need these?
Thanks Eric

The Type 3 is the quintessential milled AK. I think most guys here would like you to make it into a clone of that rifle (me included). It's your rifle though.

If you add a pistol grip or any other "evil" feature you have to comply with the infamous "no more than 10 imported parts" rule.

is is worth me changing out origonal parts for american ones? What are the easiest and/or ones that would have the least impact on the functionability of the origonal complete gun? ie.parts that really do not mater if they are OEM. Know what I mean??? Changing wood or a spring or two dosent seem that it would effect the origonality of the rifle?? Let me know what you would suggest I am open.
Thanks
Eric

Ps how is a lower tang instlled
