USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Each Arsenal SAM7 AK Rifle receiver is milled from a hot-die hammer forged receiver blank by Arsenal, Bulgaria. Other milled-receiver AKs are machined from bar stock, but Arsenal’s hot-die hammer forging produces stronger and finer-grained steel. Internal voids and cooling deformations are eliminated by the 5-ton hammer forging process.
Each forged receiver blank requires over 5.5 hours of milling before assembly. This forging and milling process is complex and time-intensive, but Arsenal’s meticulous attention to detail delivers a receiver of unequaled strength, precision, and durability.

The thing about AKs is they get hot enough to burn the wood furniture, even combustion, and your hands if they touch the metal around the barrel guard. Done it too many times.
In Nam saw some/ several/many expired Charlie with rags of open finger gloves on left hand. They got burned to by the metal around the hand guard. Seems a different design of the hand guard with metal reflectors like the AR and mounting so you won’t touch the metal would be a very desireable thing
Welcome home, good thing they didn’t have arsenal Sam 7s in Nam …..Semper Fi
At the risk of being a nag, how about a proper windage and elevation adjustable rear sight. The post front sight is o.k., the Garand I shot in competition had one, though as is well known, it’s rear sight was properly adjustable, as above noted, that is windage and elevation.
