The SA M-7 ("SA" meaning Semi-Automatic) is an American-made civilian AK-47 by Arsenal AD. It is a higher-end Kalashnikov clone designed for professionals and collectors. The M7 is respected as an extremely reliable addition to the AK family of rifles, as a result, prices for these can reach the thousands, when most Kalashnikov weapons are considered quite cheap.


It features a milled receiver, a chrome lined hammer-forged barrel, a slanted 45 degree gas block, a threaded barrel, a muzzle nut, a cleaning rod and a bayonet lug. The furniture is made from blond wood and the buttstock is of Warsaw pact length. The rifle is supplied with one 30-round magazine, a sling, an oil bottle and cleaning kit.
