Default Arsenal SAM7 vs. AK USA AK103

Which would you guys choose, and why? I am on the verge of getting an Arsenal SAM7, but can't yet dismiss the idea of the AK103. Please enlighten me on the pros and cons of each. Thanks.

for what its worth the muzzle break on the sam7 is much more effective at controling flash in low light than the standard russian '74 break that ak103 uses, but the sam7 is heavier, cause of its milled reciever. personally i would wait and buy one of the stamped reciever aks that arsenal is going to be importing especially if they have all the post ban features and the reciever walls are 1.6 mils thick instead of the standard 1 mil thick saiga recievers that ak 103 use.

The Arsenal Inc stamped steel Bulgarian AK imports will have the 1mm thick receiver (as is common on AKM based guns, including the Russian versions). I believe that the Yugoslavs and Chinese are the countries most known for using heavier steel stampings (like the receiver thickness found on most RPK's) on their AKM type weapons.

AK-USA custom guns are just that, custom. Chris's work is top notch and he builds are fantastic. I should know, he's working on my 11th. project!!!
