As we’ve reported elsewhere, the recent U.S. Government import ban of some Russian firearms doesn’t affect firearms of the same design but manufactured elsewhere — such as in good ol’ ‘Murika.
To wit: Arsenal, Inc., based in Las Vegas, has announced the return of its flagship 7.62×39-caliber stamped receiver rifle, the SLR-107FR. It happens to be Arsenal, Inc.’s best-selling and most popular rifle.
The 7.62×39 caliber SLR-107FR is a top notch, stamped receiver, semi-automatic modern sporting rifle manufactured in Las Vegas, Nevada, utilizing authentic Arsenal factory components. It is manufactured with a Bulgarian made Arsenal mil-spec 1mm stamped receiver and cold-hammer-forged and hard-chrome-lined barrel.
Authentic U.S.-made components include the anti-slap double-stage trigger group, mil-spec polymer stock set, left-side folding solid-polymer buttstock, and a one-piece muzzle brake.
Some of the other features of the SLR-107FR include: stainless-steel heat shield, 800-meter rear-sight leaf, trapdoor for cleaning kit compartment, accessory and bayonet lugs on gas and front sight blocks, 24×1.5mm right-hand threads, removable muzzle brake, and receiver-side mounted scope rails.
As always, Law Shield isn’t endorsing the SLR-107FR. We’re simply telling you it’s available as a member benefit. (We do admire Arsenal, Inc.’s timing of the announcement, whether the timing was the result of luck or craft.)
