First Look: Arsenal SAM7K-34 AK Pistol

Pinterest WhatsApp

Arsenal, Inc. is known for making AK-pattern firearms available in the U.S. Now they have a new configuration to their line of Bulgarian-made SAM7K 7.62×39 mm caliber pistols. The SAM7K-34 has a rear quick detach port and threaded front sight block with a standard Krink configuration and 24×1.5 mm right hand threads.

This new 7.62×39 mm pistol is said to have authentic, high-quality features that are rarely seen in the American market. Every component, according to Arsenal, of the SAM7K-34 is engineered with dependable service in mind, making it ideal for sport shooting, self-defense as well as pistol hunting.

Unlike other milled receivers that are machined from bar stock, every SAM7K-34 pistol receiver is milled by Arsenal in Bulgaria from a hot-die hammer forged receiver blank. Arsenal’s hot-die hammer forging is said to produce stronger and finer-grained steel, and Internal voids and cooling deformations are eliminated by the 5-ton hammer forging process.

Each SAM7K-34 forged pistol receiver begins as a blank and requires over 5 1/2 of milling before assembly. This forging and milling process is very complex and time-intensive, but because of Arsenal’s attention to detail, they can deliver a receiver of exceptional strength, precision, and durability.
