SAR 3 5.56x45 AK Rifle

I finally got to test out my SAR 3 5.56x45 AK Rifle and the Bulgarian Circle 10 magazines that I modified to fit it.  These are the mags that I use on my Arsenal SLR 106fr.  I wasn't sure if they'd work.  They sure did!  No failures of any kind, and the mod was so easy.  It was just a matter of filing down the back of the mag until it fit.The rifle also came with a modified AK 74 mag.  It feeds ok, as long as it contains no more than 20 rounds.

My SAR 3 shoots really well.  It was not sighted in, so but I got it pretty close.  I may go to the range today to zero it.  I really like this rifle.  I've liked the idea of an AK in 5.56/.223 since I first bought a WASR 3 (junk).  I can't wait to get out there and shoot with this rifle again!

Arsenal SGL 20 AKM with Blond Wood Furniture

This Independence Day weekend James and I tried out the Arsenal SGL 20 Russian Izhmash AKM. This is one nice rifle. Nice finish, build and accurate out of the box. I put some Ironwood blond furniture on it. It came with some nice plum furniture, but I really dig the blond look. No failures of any kind with this rifle. I got a great deal on this rifle a while back when K-VAR had their big "stimulus" sale. If I had the funds, I'd buy another.

Here's how it started out:



And here it is now:




Here's the video of James and I with the Arsenal SGL 20.
