Arsenal AK Sam7R

Anyone happen to know what U.S. made parts are on an Arsenal Sam7r AK? Just curious, as I am changing out the U.S. made plastic stock set to an original re-finished bulgarian wood set. I am trying to figure out if I am violating 922r compliance by doing this. I apparently need 5 US made parts to be in compliance. My U.S. made 30 rd magazine counts as 3 of them.

For my personal edification: the magazine has the tube, the follower, the spring and the base plate. Still counts as 3 parts?

Magazine body, follower, and floor plate are the 3 that count from the magazine.

I have a SAM7SF. I know the pistol grip, handguard and forend furniture are marked US. I think the AK74 style muzzle brake was US made also. The parts that matter the most are Bulgarian.

Has there ever been an instance of prosecution for violating 922r? Nobody wants to be made an example of, but it sure does seem to be a crappy piece of regulation.

With all the other problems in the world currently, 922r compliance isn't much of a concern to me, specifically none at all.

Yah. I get it, 922r is silly. I was just curious. I’m kind of new to the AK arena. I can’t find anywhere on the internet what actual parts are U.S. made. Someone on another forum said the hammer and disconnecter are U.S. made. If that is the case, as long as I have a US made magazine I should be fine. Thanks for the response.

I am think the hammer and trigger are forged Bulgarian parts. If your first AK is a SAM7 you made a great choice. Don't let anyone talk you out of it, you would regret it!

The fire control group on mine is Bulgarian made.

Arsenal claims that the SAM7r rifle is 922r compliant with imported or domestic magazines which gives you 3 imported parts to play with if you use domestic magazines.

Magazines count as 3 parts; therefore installing an imported hand guard (upper and lower together = 1 part), buttstock =1 part, and pistol grip = 1 part will allow your rifle to remain 922r compliant with the use of domestically manufactured magazines.

Plenty of folks have installed imported wood furniture on their SAM 7s and use whatever magazines they want.

Congratulations on acquiring such a fine example of an AK-47; good luck with it.

Thanks Oldsalt65. Very useful information. I had not seen that information about the magazines on Arsenal’s website. Thank you for pointing that out.

Here is a picture of it with the new Bulgarian refinished stock set. If you click on the photo it shows up better. Really happy with the look of them.

Looks good, my son just bought an Arsenal SBR. He wants to use it in the now popular practical AK Matches. It sounds kinda fun. I am looking forward to shooting it, Arsenal is a pretty high end AK style rifle. His SBR with stock folded and 30 round magazine will fit in the center console of his F250.

Thanks. I like the more traditional look wood gives it. I didn’t really know too much about AK rifles when I was looking to buy, but my research indicated Arsenal was a good choice. I haven’t been disappointed. I’m sure you and your son will enjoy shooting the SBR.
