Arsenal has a good reputation though and they have military contracts
What military contracts does Arsenal have?
Bulgaria, supposedly. Im trying to find sources besides other random forums but not much pops up. There are pics of Bulgarian troops carrying them though.

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

I was hoping they had fixed the issues but I couldnt find much info. A p320 compact in .45 would be nice.

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

If by "issues" they replaced the not drop safe trigger on the 320. Not quite, in this article there is a link to a report from the US Army where they claim to be having reliability issues. Scroll down to "recommendations" on the report. https://offgridsurvival.com/armys-brand-new-sig-sauer-p320-han...

Re: Anyone have a Sig p320 .45 subcompact?

Yeah, I'm thinking of buying the "compact" and then the subcompact frame. I hadn't checked in awhile, but .45 has come down a lot since the bad 'ol days. Which makes Phalanx happy :) Did you end up getting the Sig p320? Ive been eyeballing the p320 compact in .45 acp too but im a little worried aft...

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

Just wanted to say I do NOT like the Arsenal 106, it was maybe 5 moa at a 100 yards, wouldnt feed reliably with some ammo. Overall, it was not quite as reliable as my AR15 ,it was not anywhere near as accurate as my AR15 and the finish was crap. It felt more like a commie mini 14 than a quality har...

Re: Glock 19 Gen 4 vs Gen 5?

From the article above it seems the gen5 series was built with institutions in mind, like police and military armorers. It sounds like they will have a harder time accepting aftermarket parts. I wonder what exactly they are refering to? Do parts need fitted? are special tools required to work on th...

Pretty much all or none. That's assuming you mean affected and not effected.
Lol in the past the left has targeted specific calibers like 5.56, 30-06 etc etc.thats what I was asking about.

Re: Anyone have experience with 5.56 AKs?

So Arsenal says the 106 has a barrel life of 15k, does that mean 15k untail its not very accurate anymore or 15k untail it keyholes? I was talking to a guy on another forum who supposedly served in the Bulgarian army and claims the rifle is 100% reliable and holds up similar to the AK74. Supposedly ...

Woodghost I love you. But stating anything good about IO is HIGHLY suspect. IO is the maker of nothing but hand grenades. Period. Ask anyone in the AK community. As you know I own Legion Arms. An AK builder and retailer for over a decade. IO should not be in business. Do any search on IO Inc and pr...

Re: The All Purpose AK Thread

So I hear people say "CAI sucks and Arsenal rules." Well, in the warranty dept, yes, I believe this is correct. And for some that quality service really matters. It matters because it tells the consumers that they don't stand behind their products. Ignoring this warning sign is foolish. How many co...

Re: The All Purpose AK Thread

Frankly, I"m going to push back on the "CAI rifles are shit" idea. Of the 4 AKs I've owned, 3 WASRs and 1 M74, 3 were perfect out of the box and 1 needed 30 minuets with a drill press and a wrench. That one with the canted sight still went 1200 rounds with 1 issue which was magazine related. Cheap ...

Re: All purpose "Help me build my AR" thread.

I dont think the chart really means much anymore there are more good brands then bad , I can only really think of 3 "bad" brands. Even going by tiers is kind of sketchy due to the standard being mil spec and plenty of companies have far exceeded that so it kind of muddies the water a little.
