    I picked up a couple of Arsenal Russian made AKs last month, they sure are much higher quality than the average AK that I've seen in shops & shows.

    Lookin good! Is the furniture in the top picture from K-var? I just ordered one of their buttstocks, but I didn't care for the handguard.

    Good looking pair!

    Is the 5.45 supplied with a bullet guide?

    Be well,
    Will

    Arsenal AKs are shipped to the US out of the Izhmash factory custom shop (Legion) and come w/ factory installed bullet-guides that aren't found on standard Saiga rifles. They are as close to a Russian AK74 that you can buy.

    Yes, technically these Saigas aren't 'conversions'. They are built to a certain point in Russia, then finished with US parts here in the States.
