Let’s Beat The AMMO BAN, Brandon

Nothing fancy here (not to be confused with Nutnfancy), Brandon goes over a 5.56mm offering from Arsenal. The SAM5, a no nonsense AK that feeds itself on the tasty NATO goodness, and its SAAMI cousin .223 Remington.

Like the SLR106F, the SAM5 is a quality Kalashnikov built to run the West’s favorite round. It in all other respects acts like the AK’s we know and love (or hate, whatever floats your boat).

Further options exist with magwell additions to run AR/STANAG magazines, so with a little bit of additional investment you don’t need to track down Circle 10 or Radom magazines. But Radoms aren’t terrible to find.

So, let the ammo woes pass. 7.62x39mm is still only about $400/1,000 which (considering current times) isn’t awful by any stretch so go forth, shoot, be merry.
