There are 223 AK variants avaliable but no argument there not a 101 that is the topic of the thread.

Are there AK 74's being imported in I thought the answer was no.
I'm sure a AK 101 can be found if you want it bad enough.
Iirc kvar just got another surprise shipment of 104s a week or two ago, so yeah they're still coming into the country. I don't see that changing any time soon.

It's no surprise as the 106s are a hodge podge of stamped and milled parts, AK74 and AKM parts. While Arsenal does make 100 percent 5.56 native guns for their own military, they are all milled. The 106 exists only to sell to Americans.
Thanks for the info.
I'd never she'll out a grand for one anyway but it's good to know what's up .

Not looking for a 100 page argument.

I recall some feed issues.
I went looking for AK 101s and saw Kvar had t106's
Seems like it should not be hard to offer a GTG 223 import.
I never had issues making me crap run. You Would THINK A Factory Would Know If It feeds right or not.

Im.actualy glad there are still some 74's coming in. Glad to be wrong on that.
I don't hate the gun or the round . Never have
The more here the more a market for ammo and the better off all of us are.

How does one tell IF he/she has a later SLR106 with the wider feed ramps?
