Another alternate AK - DX7

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...firearms-dx-7/

Well this looks really interesting. I get it isn't really an AK as such, but this sure looks like it would be MD legal. At least for the folks who are going plastic fantastic magpul (and similar) furniture AKs anyway, this seems good. Now if someone were wanting a traditional wood or baiklite furniture AK...not a chance.

Interesting, but I prefer my Arsenal 106FR. 5.56 in a reliable AK platform. Shoots steel cased ammo like nobody's business. Without knowing the price of this AK-DX7, I like the Arsenal rifle.

But if this rifle sells for about $600-$700, it will be a good buy. Waiting to hear more about this new design. It has promise.

I feel like it has enough different components to pass the MD test.

Time will test it. I was interested in the M&M MX10 or whatever it was called. Looked promising, and still may be, but they did have some trouble, and the short warranty didn't inspire confidence.

"We are currently in preproduction it’s going to be right around the thousand dollar*range"

Still quite pricey IMO but cheaper than the Arsenals.

Interesting idea, but count me out at $1K.

If it makes it into full production, we'll see how it fares after a few years on the market.

Saw this earlier..
I’d def be interested especially if available in 5.56 too, if they are saying $1,000 as in MSRP which should translate to $800ish I’m all for it since I was going to buy a Arsenal and then throw magpul furniture on and have to get a red dot mount for the SLR-106 anyhow (plus it just looks strange mounted soo far forward).. All the in stock Arsenal’s I’ve seen have hovered around $1,000 for a bone stock rifle

Pencil me in for a maybe. Only because it's different, not because it's better.

The one major improvement is the top receiver which resolves the issue of mounting a scope or a rear peep to anything other than a dogleg rail or the clunky side scope mount.

If the barrel isn't attached via pins and rivets that is a huge plus--one of the AKs weak points has been how these variable stresses make it an unpredictable shooter.

One of the AKs plusses (and minuses) are the monolithic heavy bolt carrier/gas piston assembly. Switching the bolt handle is great for ergos but doesn't improve on the physics of that reciprocating mass. Why not go with a short stroke piston and a modified bolt carrier?

Really though I'm left with "why". I celebrate the "because" and would love to shoot one.
