$5,000 AK-47 Commemorative – K-Var Milled AK-47s – SHOT Show 2013


AK fans concerned Mikhail Kalashnikov’s 90th birthday was going relatively
unnoticed got a special surprise from Arsenal at this year’s SHOT Show. Only
500 rifles in the MTK90 Jubilee Series are going to be produced and they are
selling fast, despite a $3,500 price tag for the Silver Edition and $5,000 for the
Gold. Built on hand-selected rifles, the right side of the Silver version’s receiver
has engravings with a silver-colored filling that highlight Kalashnikov’s birthday,
35 years of the AK-74 and even include Kalashnikov’s signature. The trigger,
bolt carrier and several other components of the rifle are also polished to a silver
finish. The Gold Version is virtually identical, except gold coloration is substituted
for silver in the embellishments. Four hundred Silvers will be produced and 100
Golds. With its presentation box, certificate of authenticity and more, it’s a great
way to celebrate this special anniversary. If you’re more interested in an everyday
shooter, the company’s new SAM7R1 is chambered in 7.62×39 mm, comes with
a cold-hammer-forged barrel and a hot-hammer-forged receiver that makes it
stronger and longer-lasting than many of the other AK variants available today.
Prices are running around $1,350. And if you’re ready for an AK pistol, Arsenal
rolled one out at SHOT in the SAM7K. It’s also chambered in 7.62×39 mm, has
a 10.5-inch barrel, hard-chrome-plated bore and chamber and is only 20 inches
long. It tips the scales at eight pounds (without a magazine), but with an MSRP of
$1,199 it’s much lighter on the pocketbook, anyway.
