From my last AK post, I was suppose to get a Saiga 762 MK ordered from Izhmash (now called Kaleshnikov) factory.
The order never arrived at the weapons dealer in route to my LGS. I called the dealer to find out that they have not received an order from the factory for the last three years!
They are not sure if the rifle is going to come at all.
So, the manager went through the warehouse and found a replacement rifle. An Arsenal M1F-
A milled lower receiver AK (a Bulgarian AK-47)!!!! Of course I totally forgot about the Russian AKM in a hurry. I immediately called the LGS, and they changed the order for the new rifle. I will get it less then two weeks, since it is in country. I had to order an extra upper receiver cover with a picatinny rail, because the Arsenal does not have a side scope mount like the Saiga. I am buying an Aimpoint 9000sc for optics. I also ordered an extra 30 round magazine.
The dealer felt bad that I did not get the first rifle, so he sent me two pics of my actual rifle for verification.
