Arsenal SGL-31


"Nobody in the world knows what vodka is made out of, and the reason I tell you this is that the story of vodka is the story of Russia. Nobody knows what Russia is made of, or what it is liable to cause its inhabitants to do next."
Well I have decided that my next firearm purchase will be an Arsenal SGL-31. The SGL-31 is an AK-74 (5.45x39.5mm) variant with a receiver made by Saiga Legion in Russia at Izhevsk. Everything is Russian except the trigger group and stock set! Arsenal makes the Cadillac of AK's. They are pricey though when you compare it to other AK's, $800+ for the SGL-31 and $700+ for the SGL-21. But they use brand new parts. I'm having trouble finding it with a NATO length stock. I'm 6'1" so the Warsaw Pact stock might be too short for me- especially when I get around to putting optics on it. The Afghans that fought the Soviets called 5.45x39.5mm "the poison bullet" because of the wounds it left in flesh. The Warsaw Pact spent billions and billions of dollars developing and implementing the 5.45 round. It's very similar to 5.56. The little sucker has an air space in the nose that moves the center of gravity to the back increasing the tendency of the bullet to yaw in the target.So, yeaaaaah.
