The first AK47s were actually stamped, but because they couldn't always get the welds right they switched to milled receivers for 8-10 years or so. Then back to stamped as soon as technology came far enough to get the welds right every time.

They kept them a secret from the world for years, by the time we learned of them they were all milled.

Sweet rifle, technically it's an AKS though

Nice lookin rifle. Congrats.

Ok so I'm not the most knowledgeable guy around about AKs. So bear with me.

I prefer wood furniture. If I were to buy an AK like yours could I retrofit it with some nice wood without modding? Or does it "depend?"

With a folding stock it's not possible. I am the same way, prefer the wood but arsenal doesn't have a fixed stock model.

There is always the "khyber" type. The triangle folder is easily added to the Arsenal. Runs $100 or so

How disappointing. Looks like an Arsenal isn't in my future.

They change their models every few years and never make any one model for very long. For awhile a side folder was tough to get, now it's the opposite. They will come around again at some point.

I have Arsenal also, it's a Very Good Thing. You won't be disappointed.

Also, in case you missed the announcement, MagPull now makes 30 Rd AK style mags.
They are also Very Good Things. I like them better than the Circle-10s for the lock-up and feel, and they are a little less maintenance.
