I will try to detail some of the unique attributes of your Arma Rifle over
the standard AK47.
First yours is a Bulgarian AK47 with a 1.6mm Semi Automatic Receiver
All of the metal parts with the exception of the Bolt Carrier and Bolt have
been blasted, Parkerized and then Painted with GunKote brand paint. The
Paint is then cured by baking it for 1 hour at 350 degrees. This is one of
the finest finishes you will find on a service grade rifle.
Next, all of the parts on your gun are hand fitted for quality operation.
This also includes the fitting of the Orange Recoil Buffer on the Recoil
Rod. This Buffer is not standard on the AK47 and is about $14.00 if you
bought it online. The buffer does an important job of preventing the
Hardened Bolt Carrier from "Slapping" the hardened Rear Trunion. This is
important over the life of the rifle because over time, the vibration from
that "Slapping" is likely to cause small cracks to form around the rivets in
the receiver thus diminishing the tightness of the rifle and degrading the
Originally, there was a wire called a "Shepard's Hook" that held the two
pins that hold the Trigger and Hammer in. We replaced that wire with a
spring steel Retaining Plate. This is for two reasons, one: it makes it much
easier to maintain the rifle if needed and two: it holds the pins VERY
securely so there is little chance of the trigger or hammer binding or
rubbing. This increases longevity and accuracy.
The Trigger group is a Tapco G2 single hook trigger group. We smoothed the
surfaces to give it that Arma Rifle feel when you pull the trigger. We have
found that the extra cost of the Tapco group and the extra time in labor
contribute to accuracy and enjoyment (not to mention our pride in building a
very high quality service rifle.
All of the furniture (what gun guys like to call the fore and rear stock
set) is manufactured by CAA or Tapco. We have tested these pieces and have
been very happy with the quality and look. Both companies have an excellent
reputation in the aftermarket. We choose to use the best accessories to add
to the usefulness of our rifles.
The barrels on all of our rifles are military grade, chrome lined barrels.
This adds 3 to 4 times the barrel life and makes cleaning them a breeze. The
muzzle end is threaded for 1/2" x 28. This is the same thread pattern as the
AR15. If you change the muzzle break, be sure to get one that has the .30
You will notice the 30 Round Magazine on our rifle is a Tapco polymer type.
This magazine has a lifetime warranty from Tapco. I find that it is easier
to load, feeds better and is lighter than the standard AK47 magazine. You
can purchase more of them from me or Robert’s Firearms in Aurora, CO ()
Last but not least, we test fire every rifle we manufacture before we
deliver it. This allows us to make sure that every rifle is up to the
quality standards of Arma Rifle. We take pride in setting our standards
All of these attributes add up to one fine, service grade, AK47. We look
forward to producing high quality rifles and making friends along the way.
I hope this answered your questions. If not, email me with your questions
and I will write back.
Thanks for buying the best,
