    Howdy all!
    I picked up this cool little AK today at my local pawn shop (along with a Marlin 336) for what I think was a very good price. Does anybody have any information, opinions, or experience with this rifle? The milled receiver has a rail on the side for mounting some sort of optics. Where can i get the mount and what optics would be good (on the less expensive side)? I can't wait to put her through the paces and chop my marlin.

    p.s. the marlin (a pre-bolt safety) was $150 out the door :)
    I just had to brag a little to somebody!

    The SA m7 is a great rifle! There is this guy named Doug, but he goes by Tantal, look up (google) Avtomats in Action and you will find his site. You will have to email him to get a price list of what he has in stock. From what I hear, he is very good to deal with.
    There are two other places, Kalinka Optics Warehouse and Freedomoptics. I heard from iffy things from both of these places, but more so with Kalinka.
    The Freedom optics guy is named Yuri (I think) and I ordered a Bp-02 side mount from him. I then realized after I ordered it, I had no way to contact him and this concerned me. But a couple of days later, I got the mount lickity split! right now they hardly have anything on their website, except the mount and a kobra side mount red dot.
    I never dealt with Kalinka. They have a professional looking website, but I heard of bad customer service.
    I hope this helps. And good luck!

    The Arsenal AKs are among the best and the SA M7 is one that most people want (and can't have since they don't make them any more). I was happy to find mine a couple years back even though it doesn't have a rail. Get a kobra from Tantal.

    Scratch Freedomoptics. I was looking at a thread of a guy wanting a bp-02 mount. He placed an order with them and he got refunded due to them going out of business:(

    I forgot to say congrats on the marlin!

    Thanks fellas! I always get good information here.
    How much do you think the rifle is worth in today's market? I'm not looking to sell but just want to know how well I made out with this one.
    It looks like there was less than 50 of this model made!
