Can you post photos of your SAM7K's FS/GB combo as well as the front end of the barrel. I'm curious...

here is a picture of the read end with the rail removed. I was hoping for a round hole but it is square notch. not the best picture but you get the idea. maybe someone will come out with an mount that will accept a pignose AR mount. Or is someone comes out with a better brace than the SIG brace.

Quit messing with it before they decide to void your warranty.
Just called and left a voicemail.

Got 2 pistols and 2 beer can boosters direct from KVAR. Having the same issue as piso. The thread protectors that came with them go on with no effort and screw ALL the way down. WTF?

Will be calling Cliff Monday...

Good idea, I will do do as well. I already left a voicemail and an email with Arsenal, and spoke to a guy on the phone at K-Var who suggested oiling the threads, which I canít do since the flash hider is now stuck on again.

You’ll be fine bro . If you gotta call kvar again for some reason ask for Nathan . He’s always giving me professional service

IRONY

hey arsenal/kvar we want the sam7ks to be threaded

2 months later they do it

Add another $200 to the cost for said feature

Users report the threading is jacked


Yeah they should be paying shipping both ways

For what it’s worth, I had Dallas Moore (whatever happened to him?) install a new front end that I got from KVAR on mine several years ago. My Bulgy 4 piece would only screw on part of the way.

The threads on the gun looked perfect so I suspected the threads on the flash hider were screwed up. Got a tap on EBay for something like $10 and, after chasing the threads, screwed on perfectly.

Some of you are saying that the thread protector screws on easily so my bet is the flash suppressor/booster threads need chasing.

I agree, it's a possibility that the Bulgarian 4 piece FH may have bad threads. I have both the CNCW and Ak-Builder 4 piece FH with no issues. Both would screw in smoothly till it makes contact with the FS/GB combo.

CNCW 4 Piece FH


AK-Builder 4 piece FH

From what you guys are saying, I agree that it might be an issue with the threads on the flash hider itself, but since itís now stuck on I donít want to mess with it.

Cliff got back to me and said that he will work with Arsenal to get me a shipping label to send the pistol back. Iím glad heís taking care of me - canít wait until this is fixed and I get to shoot it!

Same here...sending both pistols and boosters back. I agree with Island and Magician that its probably the booster threads. Especially after Frank and Island report after market muzzle devices going on as designed.

Pismo,
Are you sending it back with the 4pc flash hider.

If not I can rethread the flash hider.

I HAVE THE TOOLS!

I thought you had the F-H off again.

Hey make sure they refinish it too.

The SAM7K is supposed to have a quality finish. I have the non threaded one and it's finish is tops.

Good luck
MJ

I had it off once and then tried to screw it back on. Now itís back where it was before, but Iím not able to twist it off.

I was surprised about the finish as well. Itís not awful, but compared to my other 2 SAM7s (a non-threaded SAM7K and a SAM7SF) it is in noticeably worse condition.

I cant get my 4pc flash hider from k-var to screw down either on a 107fr or 107ur. it bottoms out on a little lip at the end of the threads on the flash hider itself, thought the FH was f'ed up, maybe not threaded enough. when I got my 107cr it screwed on just fine, screws on a 74 fine, now im thinking its the rifles? fsb to long maybe? idk

Good job Kvar-Cliff for taking care of them and not pushing them over too the next buildings CS .

I’ve had my own problem with a arsenal rifle a couple of years ago and wishing I knew about Cliff back then

Cliff/KVAR has been very quick and responsive to this/my issue. Its being handled in a most expeditious way.

I also purchased a Kvar four piece, it threaded on like butter. Ran a couple mags through it, it is now my favorite AK. Will put some pics up when I get my adapter next week. Bought a sig folder going to stick a SB tactical brace I took off an AR I have. Until someone comes up with something better going to run with that.

Just talked to Arsenal CS. They said their system is down today, but I should have an RMA for both the gun and the flash hider tomorrow.

I just ordered one and am kicking around thoughts on the best way to attach a brace. I'm partial to the SBA3 so I'm tempted to pick up JMac's 1913 to M4 tube folding adapter but I wonder what other options there are.... I suppose I could pull off the 1913 rail section and that opens up some options as far as bolting a mount to the back of the receiver

My plan was to pull rail and use a stormwerkz folding adapter through the hole that's already there.

the jamc's is actually the Sig adapter, just got mine in. you have to install it did center and you can install it so it folds to the right. Waiting a week now so hopefully PSA will ship the SBA3 that i ordered.

The sba3 company already sells a pic rail model that folds . Check around . Easter weekend companies are running sales
