IZHMASH SAIGA SGL2171 AK-47 7.62X39 5RD BLK
[SGL2171]
$851.00

For starters this rifle is no longer stamped under the Arsenal brand much to my surprise. Apparantly over the past summer the Izhmash factory started stamping their rifles under the FIME Group brand which is also out of Las Vegas like Arsenal. From searching the web its still the same rifle with Arsenal parts installed just with a different company stamped on it. It even comes still in an Arsenal box and with Arsenal test target. Arsenal's parent company K-Var Group probably created FIME group for probably something doing with export laws/ limits.

The rifle seems very well made and solid. My front sight post was straight. On my test target that came with the rifle the groupings were 2.5-3" to the left. Surprise surprise when I got it out to the range it did the same at 25 yards. That tells me they knew the sights were off and did nothing to correct it at the factory. Couldn't even hit paper at 100 yards. Gonna have to order a sight pushing tool from midway to fix it. The gun did run flawlessy and grouped well at 25 yards, just 3" to the left.

Overall its a good solid rifle, but its sights should have been corrected at the factory after the the test fire.

Bud's shipping was fast and flawless as usual
