i think it comes with a russian bride and a bottle of vodka. its in the fine print no?

EDIT: after actually reading the fine print. the words that stood out and actually might be the reason is 'US made.'

its a milled ak and those cost a bit more but imho its way to much. imo its the type of rifle for people with more $$$ than brains!

For $2,000, I'd hope it came with about $1100 in cash.

I dont think its true but I heard most AK cost $50 or so to produce in 3rd world countries and we pay upwards to $1k to buy them?

sounds really plausible. just look at everyday electronics and appliances. they're only worth fractions of what it retails for.

Milled receiver and hammer forged barrel make it pricey but still doesn't warrant a 2k price tag. That's just nutz

Not true. Even the "basic" Arsenal Saiga conversions start out with a rifle that costs more than $50 to produce, and that is before all the conversion parts and labor are added to it. Besides, last I checked Russia is not considered a third world country. Heck, Romania is not a 3rd world country either. Ok, who is importing the Haitian AK's - I want one!

Hey,

if the Shootrite Katana from Red Jacket Firearms can go for $1925, anything is possible!

Not only does it have a milled receiver, the rifle is made in America. Has blonde wood. Its not just ANY hammer forged barrel, its a HEAVY chrome lined barrel. If it is by arsenal then jut add another $500 in the mix lol

Bad idea Russian brides have a shelf life of about 22 years old.

It's the equivilent of the manufacturer's web page. You will almost always pay a premium buying direct. That's how they support their dealer network - you will find the same product for a lot less through a dealer.

Your paying a 500 dollar premium for a heavy barrel and a folding wire stock Arsenal's M7 costs around 1500 these days but at 2000 that's just not worth it. Your much better off just buying a VEPR and converting it the way you want.

trust me you don't want a 50 dollar ak - its 2K because it's a milled under folder with quality new parts and I'd rather spend 2K on that then a scar or some other nonsense.

BTW it's 2K because of greedy Americans, don't hate the players hate the game homes.

There's a sucker born every minute and K-Var/Arsenal knows that!

Milled receiver and hammer forged barrel make it pricey but still doesn't warrant a 2k price tag. That's just nutz

I wonder if they are using new receivers or doing rewelds? There is NOTHING wrong with a clean reweld and they can be built for less than a stamped receiver gun can be.

I trust that $30 third world AK much more than U-drive/screw build, Lancaster and IONIC AKs. You guys still remember that Arsenal forgot to put a bullet guide in someone's SGL, right????

Solidsnake87
03-24-2011, 8:39 PM
Arsenal also does limited runs of a specific gun before they change their tooling for other models. $2k is a bit much, but hey, some people will pay that.

Sorry can't, but it's a good guess. The OP of the pic probably knows. Looks like part of a set.
