    After several weeks of exhausting research, the majority consensus is Arsenal is the way to go. So I did. This morning I got an e-mail from Atlantic that my Arsenal SGL 21 is shipped out. I also ordered their Russian Red wood set, so once I have that put on I'll take some pics.

    Bummer. I had checked for the best price I could get. Atlantic was $799 with $20 shipping. This morning I was browsing Bud's and they have the Arsenal SGL 21 for $737 free shipping. They must have just put that up, because I didn't see it before. Story of my life.

    I ordered 3 European 30 rd steel mags from Aimsurplus, and 1 Asian 75 rd drum mag from CDNN ( I thought $79 + $6 for shipping was a great price)

    Now looking for 1000 rds of non-corrosive ammmo......
    What do you think about Brown Bear?

    I'm looking at buying the same setup...right down to the furniture you mention. Could you please post pics and a range report when you get it?

    Thanks, and congrats!

    I know you don't need to be stroked but I'm proud of you man (sobing, tears of joy :)). Spoon fed you are not. Research always pays off.

    I've never found Atlantic to have good prices on anything I was wanting.

    I just got in a few of those same mags from Aims as well. They look good and are functionally solid.

    Brown Bear is good but look at some Wolf. I have found Wolf to be a little less expensive.

    Congrats on the Arsenal. Damn fine piece. :)

    If you're looking for affordable non corrosive ammo, you'll need to buy new manufacture Russian.

    I generally shoot corrosive MilSurp when I can find it. Shoots just as well as new, and a lot cheaper. Just have to pay a little more attention to cleaning.

    I bought my Arsenals from my local dealer $699+tax I like looking at what I buy before paying for it. I have two 7.62x39s and a 5.45x39 all have worked great. Put Russian PSOP Optics on all three.

    Dang, I was too slow. I was going to tell you my only experience with any bear ammo (silver bear, in 7.62X54r for my Mosin) it worked just fine. Hit where I pointing that old boat oar, no malfunctions, no sticking in the chamber...

    But it was the absolute filthiest burning stuff I've ever shot out of any gun. Personally, I would just stick to milsurp ammo. Downsouth, Jstrong, and I put a grand total of 20 rounds downrange, and it took me almost three hours to clean the filth out of the rifle.

    Heck, cleaning a military rifle until it will pass the D.I.s inspection is half the fun of owning and using old military warhorses.!:D

    whaa?



    Hey, I'm new here... been lurking a lot though, lol. Where is atlantic selling an arsenal for 799? Could you link that? I really want one... or am considering doing a conversion if I can find someone around here to "mentor" me through it.

    Thanks!
