Default Arsenal SGL 20 AK 103 Izhmash AKM Clone

This Independence Day weekend James and I tried out the Arsenal SGL 20 Russian Izhmash AKM. This is one nice rifle. Nice finish, build and accurate out of the box. I put some Ironwood blond furniture on it. It came with some nice plum furniture, but I really dig the blond look. No failures of any kind with this rifle. If I had the funds, I'd buy another.

Damn that's fancy. My buddies knock some of my AKs for being too "cosmetic", but that's just how they should "look" in my eyes.

It's amazing what a nice Duracoat and good stain and varnishing job will do for a baseline stock AK. I do like the contour of the Ironwood furniture over the standard military design.

What is the difference in the stock length from Ironwood as opposed to the typical "warsaw" pact length stocks?

Thanks. I'm glad that you like it. I'll have to measure the IW stock, but I don't think it's WP length. It feels nice, and the length is good.
