Arsenal SLR-95 conversion?

What's involved to legally ditch the thumb hole stock and upgrade the trigger.

Is it worth the hassle and cost?

I'm itching to do something after selling my AR15 today.

very easy, all you need is the pistol grip and pistol grip bolt and nut and any stock that will fit AK-74 stamped receiver. make sure they have US made FCG for 922r compliance parts count - if not, you will need to drop in US made one. that and US made stock and forehand will make the count

but why this rifle? This is a sporting AK-74 100 series. if you want to change the stock anyway, it would be cheaper to get unconverted saiga and do the conversion
fun - a little more involved - get the conversion kit and 2 hours of work

imho, 20" AK-74 variants look better with this type of stock

As Samal stated, making sure teh US part count is right and keeping with teh 922r statute.

Is it worth it, in my opinion no. The SLR you have is one of the higher quality AK varients. You wouldnt see much return on your dollar if you converted and I think you would have an easier time marketing it and selling it as an unconverted model. For you it wouldnt be much hassle, you could tackle it with no problem,

1) Whats your End game?
2) If you want to dump money into it just because, then dont.
3) At the end of the day even if you convert it you'll still just have a 7.62x39 blaster with limited accuracy ability and minor flexibility with options.


That's my 3 sentence wrap up!

well, it's 7.62x39, but if you open it up - and see inside - it's actually AK-74 chambered in 7.62 not, AK-47

it has BCG of AK-74 - thinner bolt than AK-47 and 3 locking tabs. also the gas tube is AK-74 with 90 degree gas block vs 45 degree gas block from AK-47

also the recoil spring rod is AK-74
