Default Pins to dimples transition

When did this occur? I need to get the trunnion year right for the proper cloning of a 103. Are all authentic 103s only came dimpled? My barrel assembly came pinned. Thanks!

Default Sgl21s

Do the SGL21-94s have pressed punched components?

Nope, they were just a standard SGL converted by Arsenal with the folder.

The Soviet military required the dimples the 1980's.

The Russian military followed that.

Export rifles often have no dimples because other countries don't have the tooling to service them.

The AK-103 is offered both ways for export.
