Are mags for these rifles being manufactured as well? Prices and availability being what they are, could be beneficial for all!
The M-74N Black Circle Ten 30-round magazines are still being manufactured by Bulgaria to support the SAM5 line. All clear magazines have been discontinued and we are selling out the last of those now. I think that we'll see more of the black magazines pretty soon and on a more consistent basis.

Any possibilities of SAM5 imports in the future?

Yes, from what I understand that is a possibility but have not heard a peep about them coming in anytime soon.

It would be cool if you could offer them in the standard configurations, and also with magwell adapters to take AR-15 mags, kind of like Zastava did with the M85/M90.

That would be pretty cool. I think that most would prefer the standard AK magwell but there are people that would appreciate an AR-15 magwell for sure.

I unfortunately won't be able to offer free M-74N black magazines with a purchase of an SLR106-21. I can however guarantee that if you call us and place a back order for them that you will be called before they go live online. If for some reason we are unable to reach you we will allocate your back order for at least 24 hours prior to releasing them for sale. With quantities being limited we do have to put a cap on the number of available units per purchase in an attempt to give everyone a fair shot at getting them. I will also put something on here first to give everyone a heads up before making them go live.

Let me preface this by saying that I am not expert. However I do own a SLR-106CR and have sent it back to Arsenal twice for jamming on 5.56 ammo. From this experiance, I can say personally that my rifle worked just fine with .223 ammo (brass and steel). When I tried 5.56 ammo (from various manufactuers) I experianced the following: trigger slap, pronounced muzzle flash, shift of POI of about 2 inches and at least 2-3 jams (mostly stovepipes) per 30 rd mag. When I switched back to .223 during the same shooting session, everything was fine (POI back to zero, reduced flash, no trigger slap and no jams for mag after mag). What "I" take away from this is this: even though the Arsenal litature says that this rifle is 5.56, "my" rifle is .223. Although I am not 100% happy with with this I am living with it and to me it makes sense.

Cliff,

Was at kalashbash and met a member of the kvar/arsenal/fimegroup legal team (brian hardy) and kit cope - they said to reach out to you about possibly getting a discount code once in a while for file members or even free shipping once in a while - both of the guys i talked to seemed supportive of this on your team. Please let us know if this is something you can arrange for a couple of times a year!! We spend alot of $$ on kvar

Too easy. I'll work something out in relation to this. Thank you for bringing that up. We can run something for a week long once every three months or so.

Unfortunately it is no longer going on. Initially it was good for last weekend and we decided to extend it until Thursday at 10am. Did you happen to pick one up yesterday?

I think I’m just going to wait and see what the Atlantic wbp 5.56 or the PSA 5.56 ends up looking like. If I buy the 106 I will end up sending it off to get a side rail mounted. No doubt voiding my kvar warranty. If breathing on an arsenal gun voids the warranty imagine a side mount!

Yeah!

You ever think of the master mount ?


The PSA version on price alone when it’s tentatively release in July will be a sell out . Also we have seen PSAs warranty in action over and over . And it’s for life

I donít dig the master mount, just not my taste.. If I had a 106 I would end up spending money on a decent side mount and end up paying someone to do it.


I guess I can wait.

There is very little love for 106 rifles on the web. I didn't even know they existed, (I was busy), until my wife gave me the CR for my b-day (used). It's the reason I joined this forum, to learn all about it. I did, (learn) a LOT.

I chopped it, suppressed it, and it's now my "go to" for the ranch work. It has BFPU finish, and it performs FLAWLESSLY after some tinkering (I like to tinker). It's never more than arm's length from me, no matter what I'm doing. I like it. A lot.

P.S. While tinkering, I had to call Arsenal twice. I received STELLAR service from them, and I am not the original owner either. People bitch here about Arsenal/KVAR ,...my experience with them was VERY positive.

In my not worth a sh!t opinion . The CR type rifles are the perfect aks once chopped . I went with the UR series which Iím ok with . My 107UR sbr is fun to shoot but in all practical applications the CR has the edge .

This. I'm still gathering Bulgarian parts to make my own. I had to get a Russian Rear Folding Trunnion however. I think that will be the only part non Bulgarian... oh well.

I’m breaking up with all akms and variants until the SAM5s come back at a price point at the Sam7R level or below due to the magazine costs . Goodbye Cliff and friends it’s been great ..

What exactly is the reason for the 106 rifles not being imported with the side rail mount? Will 106frs and 106crs ever be the imported again? Those are my questions thanks

The SLR106's with side rail mounts have all been sold with the exception of NFA items. SLR106 rifles will never be imported again due to them being permanently discontinued. We are down to a handful of SLR106C's and SLR106F's. My estimate is that all will be sold by Mid Summer or sooner.
