Right Side Folding Stock AK from Arsenal Inc.

Arsenal new gun

Arsenal’s “game changer” is a new SAM7SF rifle with a right-side folding stock.  The semi-automatic rifle is chambered in 7.62×39.

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.  The barrel is also made in Bulgaria.  Other parts of the rifle are a mix of Bulgarian and US parts.

Magpul AK-47 Magazine

When you think of polymer AR-15 magazines, Magpul PMAGs are almost the universal image that comes to mind.  The company now aims to make you think “Magpul AK-47 magazine” when you need to feed your Eastern Bloc gun.

Magpul AK-47 magazine

I recently read an independent test in a tactical magazine that compared 5 different polymer magazines. Though several other brands scored high, the Magpul PMAG was still the reigning champ.  From dusty battlegrounds to the mean streets, to home defense and beyond, Magpul has produced a great magazine that is enjoyed by many.

PMAG 30 AK MOE

Until recently Magpul has focused most of the PMAG magazines on the AR rifle market.  The most popular mag being for the AR-15, but also offering magazines for the  AR-10 in .308 caliber, and two options for the British SA80 and the H&K G36.

For the first time, however, Magpul has entered the increasingly popular AK-47 market with the new PMAG 30 AK MOE.  The new PMAG 30 for the AK-47 brings all the experience, expertise, and technical magic that has made the Magpul PMags so popular in the AR market to the Kalashnikov world.  Specifically designed to work in the AK-47, AKM, AKS, and similarly patterned rifles chambered for the 7.62×39, the AK MOE is a 30-round lightweight polymer magazine that offers a removable base plate, constant curve, and the highly regarded and dependable Magpul follower.

Rock River LAR-47

Aaron got a close look at the Rock River LAR-47 at the 2012 SHOT Show.  Here are his thoughts on the rifle.

Rock River Arms (RRA) has become one of the hottest AR-15 rifle manufactures in the country. Brothers Mark and Chuck Larson founded the company in 1996, after spending about 15 years as armorers with Springfield Armory, Les Baer Custom, and Eagle Arms – where they worked on AR platforms.

The RRA LAR-15 rifles and 2-stage triggers have become synonymous with quality craftsmanship. It was that quality that led the DEA to award RRA a contract for patrol rifles back in 2003, beating out several of the “majors” rifles for the bid. That bid alone may have propelled RRA into the AR market spotlight at an early age when most weapon manufacturers are still trying to work out the bugs of their brand name. RRA has excelled at making excellent rifles, and the number of agencies and personal owners has increased accordingly.

Rock River LAR-47

Though they have experience building 1911 pistols, RRA has for years focused their attention solely on AR-15 rifle platforms.

That is until now!

At the 2012 SHOT SHOW Rock River Arms announced that in 2012 they will begin distribution of the RRA LAR-47 CAR A4 – a sweet combination of the AR-15 and AK-47 platforms that RRA calls “a match made in heaven”. I talked with RRA representative, Steve Mayer about this truly unique innovation in the rifle market.
