    SLR-101S questions

    A liberal friend of mine gave me her ex husbands SLR-101S. I donít like it, and I donít get all the hype.

    It appears to be a ban model; I know nothing about these guns. The magwell appears opened up to accept normal AK mags but it still has the 3 slot brake and there is no plunger to hold it in. It looks pinned or something. Thereís no bayo lug either.

    If Iím to keep this, I want to take that brake off and replace it. Iím sure itís loud. How can I do that? Is there anything else I need to know about this gun? Specifically, will it function? Iíve been reading that some guys open up these magwells with dremels in their garages. Donít they require a different bolt?
    Why do the loudest do the least?

    101S rifles were imported in a few different configurations, do you have any pictures?

    The muzzle break on my SLR101s was on very tightly but I was able to remove it and replace it with a Smith Vortex. FWIW, the SLR101s is a very well-made carbine.

    It looks exactly like this. Given that itís so old (he bought it new almost 20 years ago) I just assumed the muzzle device was permanently attached since the AWB was still in place. My limited research says this thing was imported with a single stack magwell and was opened up here, but even bypassing 922r it still wouldíve been under the AWB and couldnít have two evil features.

    Thoughts?

    And the ex-hubby didn't get to keep his rifle? WTH? Good for you though. Free rifle!

    I know a lot of states put the ex on a no-buy NICS list and you need to pay a lawyer extra to petition to stay off of it.

    So I love AKs but I hate milled AKs. Your adding 1lb to an already heavy rifle. If it's in very good condition you can get $850-$1200 for it. I personally would not mess with it and I would sell it.

    I wish I was in your shoes for getting a free rifle (albeit under likely better circumstances).

    The SLR101s were pretty decent Arsenal AKs however being they are milled, they are heavy pigs. If you are interested in an AK platform, you could keep this one and have a good AK-smith take care of the break—or your could sell/trade for a stamped gun of your choosing.

    Iíve always wanted a milled AK. Iíve got an email off to Rifle Dynamics asking them some questions about their upgrades for Arsenal rifles.

    I'll gladly take it off your hands, should you want to get it out of your safe.



    Standard AKM muzzle devices are indexed with a spring and detent captured pin. You depress the pin, and turn the muzzle device off. There's a ton of brakes available for the AKM series of rifles. Check out AK Operator's Union for some suggestions.

    As for function, you can get some Golden Tiger for like 19 cpr and go blast away happily. AKOU has a good front sight tool, so grab one of those to get it zeroed.

    I echo the sentiments of the other guys in here. Stamped receivers are way lighter and handier. You can get Rifle Dynamics rifle or a WBP polish AKM easily for what you could sell the SLR-101 for.
