The rifle uses a forged and milled receiver made by Arsenal Company of Bulgaria, and then is assembled into a complete rifle by Arsenal Inc in the US. Â The barrel is also made in Bulgaria. Â Other parts of the rifle are a mix of Bulgarian and US parts.
The right-side folding stock does not interfere with the operation of the rifle, and the gun can be fired with the stock folded. Â The safety is ambidextrous and the left side of the pistol grip has a cut out to accommodate it.

Arsenal states the first 500 rifles will be discounted by $250 to $1,349. Â However, the listed MSRP is $1650. Â So, I’m not sure where the error is. Â If you are interested in one of these new rifles, you probably want to contact them and confirm the pricing.
